This is a book of 4 wonderful Christmas novellas. These are all Amish stories that are connected by a single night in December. The main characters of each story were born on December 1 in an Amush birthing clinic in the town of North Star.I loved every story and they were all wonderful. The four stories are Guiding Star by Katie Ganshert, Mourning Star by Amanda Flower, In the Stars by Cindy Woodsmall and Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark.
I did not want to put any of the stories down. This is such an uplifting set of Christmas novellas.
I received this book from Bloggingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion.
