A Christmas Haven by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall

I have never been disappointed by a book by Cindy Woodsmall and again I am not. I love her stories and especially her Christmas stories. I loved Arlan and Ivy. These are two people who both need to find out who they truly are. This is told in a wonderful way I love the blending of Amish and English traditions that are used here in this community. I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this book a five out of five stars.

Publisher Description

For fans of holiday romances and Amish life comes a new Christmas tale of surprising expectations and discovering miracles.

Old Order Amish Ivy Zook is wrestling with her need to shed her community’s ways so she can grow the business of her dreams: planning parties. As long as she’s stuck living without modernization, she can barely get her business on its feet. But if she leaves too soon, she’d cause trouble for her sister, Holly, who is planning her wedding to Joshua Smucker. All of their plans become twice as complicated when an old car crashes into the storefront of Greene’s Pharmacy, carrying a Swartzentruber (ultra-conservative sect) Amish man, Arlan, and his very ill sister. 

The Zooks take in Arlan and Madga, tending to the woman’s illness and Arlan begins helping around the family farm. Ivy and Arlan are on different tracks, one wanting to leave her community and the other to return to his. But both young people are trying to discover what God has in store for their futures and what miracles might lie around the corner this Christmas season.
