Genre: Inspirational/romance

Will Henderson’s father abandoned him when he was six years old. Even though Will is raised by a loving, childless Amish couple, he still suffers from abandonment issues. Now Will has joined the Amish church and is about to marry Karen Yoder.

Karen Yoder can’t seem to break down the barrier Will has constructed. An old boyfriend is beginning to seek her out, and Will is suddenly acting extremely immature. There’s a chance their wedding won’t happen. Especially since someone is targeting Will.

Frank Henderson never meant to abandon his son. He just wanted help with raising him after his wife dies, because he can’t take a small boy with him on a over-the-road truck. At least until Frank finds a new job. But when he settled down and tries to find his son, he discovers the family he left them with is long gone. Sixteen years have gone by. Will Frank even recognize his son if he sees him again?

WHITE CHRISTMAS PIE is a sweet Amish romance by popular author Wanda Brunstetter. Sweet and hopeful, the whole book is a delicious read to while away a few hours.

I enjoyed getting to know Karen and some of the secondary characters, but I found Will extremely immature at times. I wanted to tell him to grow up. I sympathized with Frank wanting to find his son, and regretting the choices he made that caused him to lose the boy, and hoped he’d find him. A delicious sounding recipe for WHITE CHRISTMAS PIE is included at the end of the book.
