A Simple Amish Christmas

Chapman, Vannetta. A Simple Amish Christmas. Nashville, TN: Abingdon Press. 2013.

simpleamishLeaving the Amish community, Annie Weaver spends three years in Philadelphia working as a registered nurse. When she receives a phone call and must abruptly return back home, Annie finds herself involved once again with her family as well as other members of the community (including Samuel, a neighboring widow). Does the Amish neighborhood accept Annie back into their culture even with her advanced medical training? Will Annie find love as well as acceptance at Christmas time?

Through careful research, Vannetta Chapman weaves a heart-warming story of Christmas within the Amish community. With a glossary and brief interview included at the end of the book, I followed the story easily, even learning a few words and customs relevant to the Amish. I found the interaction between Annie’s life with the English and the Amish very interesting. A good, endearing book during the Christmas season that proved to be a delight.
