An Amish Christmas

Author: Patricia Davids
Publisher: Love Inspired
December 2010
ISBN: 978-0-373-87637-2
Genre: Inspirational/Amish

Karen Imhoff and her siblings have found a man beaten half-dead by the side of the road in her Amish community. She is quick to help, and even offers the man lodging in their dawdihaus once he is released from the hospital. The thing is, he doesn’t know who he is.

Quickly nicknamed John Doe until he remembers who he is, John tries to question the Amish community to see if anyone knows who he is. No one shows any signs of recognition but John does discover that he knows something about horses. How, he doesn’t know.

As John and Karen fall in love, John begins to dread remembering his past. What if he’s married? When he does regain his memory, will that kill their romance, or will he somehow be able to return?

AN AMISH CHRISTMAS is the third book in the Brides of Amish Country series by Ms. Davis. I have read the others in this collection and think this book was the best of the trio, though it did drag a little. It was real interesting to read the vocabulary lessons as Karen and her sister Anna attempted to teach John to speak their tongue.

If you are looking for a sweet Amish romance, then AN AMISH CHRISTMAS is a book that you should consider. It is a quick read, but will help to put you in the Christmas spirit. Discussion questions are included at the end. $5.50. 217 pages.
