In these heartwarming, faith-affirming stories, three Amish families face the joys, and challenges, of the holidays—with fruitful results . . .
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Shelley Shepard Gray
When the foster parents they’ve cautiously grown to love discover they’re expecting, orphaned Roy and Jemima Fisher, ages six and seven, are secretly devastated by the certainty they’ll be given up. With Christmas around the corner, their only wish is for new foster parents as nice as Mr. and Mrs. Kurtz. Meanwhile, the Kurtzes have wishes of their own—and with faith, they all may be gifted with twice the blessings . . .

Still grieving the loss of her husband and unborn baby in an accident several months ago, Elizabeth Yoder is oblivious to her neighbor Luke Bontrager’s deepening affection for her. But while she bleakly faces Christmas alone, it’s Luke who reminds her it’s the season for giving. And when Elizabeth donates her handmade baby clothes to New Beginnings, a home for teen moms, she soon finds her gifts repaid beyond measure, with Luke’s love—and new beginnings of their own . . .

What happenst when two secretive, stubborn people find themselves thrown together to help four rascally youngsters—twins times two!—create a Christmas surprise for their parents? Mischief and mayhem, and just maybe . . . love!

Marilyn's  thoughts:  I knew I wanted to read Amish Christmas Twins when I first saw it was being released. I always enjoy books with twins by being one. This was a uplifting and fun read with each author’s contribution with their own unique style of writing.


The Christmas Not-Wish by Shelley Shepard Gray was an emotional read as I felt for the foster children Roy and Jemima Fisher. Their characteristics and logical were typical of foster children from my years of working with them. The drama Jemima created Christmas Eve brought tears along with a delightful ending. It was nice to catch up with the characters from Gray’s Walnut Creek series in this tale.


Rachel J. Good’s New Beginnings novella was my favorite. The love and admiration Luke had for Elizabeth even after losing her to his best friend in the past. I appreciated the depth of his compassion and assistance he gave to Elizabeth so she could move forward. The scenes involving New Beginnings, the home for teen moms, were touching. I admire the way Good wove an admirable ending involving a teen mom, Elizabeth and Luke to show the true faith meaning of Christmas.  


Twins Time Two by Loree Lough brought plenty of chuckles with the young teen twin cousins. Their antics reaped consequences but in the end they had grown to show maturity and that they really did respect and care for others.


This is a wonderful collection to read this Christmas season, especially if you enjoy stories with twins.


I received a complimentary e-book from NetGalley and Kensington Books and was under no obligation to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
