A Lancaster County Christmas - Review

Book - A Lancaster County Christmas  by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Publisher - Revell

Hardcover, 198 pages

This story is a clash of two worlds. An "English' (non-Amish) couple end up stranded at an Amish home, at Christmas time. They have their worldly problems, but are exposed to a simple Amish life. On the other hand, The Amish family is dealing with their own trials. It is interesting to see how they interact with one another.

I enjoyed the description of daily Amish life, but found the story line a bit stressful for me. I was hoping to read a peaceful Christmas story, but it was more like real life - with troubles and trials! (smiles)  There was also a lot of information about owls that didn't interest me.  The owls were something that fascinated the young Amish boy in the family.

Overall, it is well written, interesting and entertaining.

*Disclosure - I received a copy of this book for review purposes.*

I love Amish Christmas stories! I grew up in a small town with a large Amish community. So, it's always been something that fascinates me. I may have to get that one. I actually like owls! :)
