Bestselling Amish novelist Linda Byler’s three heartwarming Christmas romances—in one affordable volume!
Linda Byler is beloved for her skillful story telling and true-to-life descriptions of Amish food, faith, and culture. As an Amish woman herself, she can share details of Amish life that few can replicate. Here are three heartwarming novellas full of longing, struggle, confused feelings, and ultimately love.
Little Amish Matchmaker: Simon can't stop thinking about the pretty Amish teacher at the local one-room school. But he's ignored the sparks between them because he's so shy. So Simon's little brother, Isaac, takes matters into his own hands. Amish novelist Byler brings her tender humor and skillful observation of family relationships to this holiday story.
The Christmas Visitor: Ruth Miller’s Amish neighbors help her to make the difficult transition from wife to widow. As Christmas approaches, Ruth knows that she can't afford gifts for her children. But then banana boxes full of food, treats for the children, and even money begin to appear on her front porch. Who is leaving her these generous gifts? And who is that handsome stranger who always seems to show up when she most needs help? Mary’s Christmas Goodbye: Mary Stoltzfus is thirty years old, splashed with freckles, and unmarried. In her Amish world, that qualifies her to be called an old maid. When she travels to Montana to teach, she arrives at a desolate station and meets Arthur Bontrager, who introduces her to Beaver Creek School, dirt roads, and the fancy shed where she would live. She has no idea the physical challenges she will face during Montana’s cruel winter . . . nor the struggles her heart will encounter as she learns to open herself to the possibility of love.
