Feeling aimless after his father's tragic death, Levi Kinsinger helps a widowed newcomer, Julia Kemps, with a Christmas project and finds himself falling in love before discovering a difficult secret. By the award-winning author of A Sister's Wish. Original. 100,000 first printing.

HARPERCOLL

In Shelley Shepard Gray’s fourth book in her Charmed Amish Life series, an unlikely Amish romance reveals that Christmas is a time for family, miracles—and love. 

Ever since his father died in a tragic fire, Levi Kinsinger has felt adrift. Newly returned to Charm, Ohio, Levi is trying to fit into his old life, only to discover he seems to have outgrown it.

But when Julia, his young widowed neighbor, asks for his help with a Christmas project, Levi finds a sense of purpose for the first time in months. She and her daughter are new to Charm and could use a friend, a job Levi takes personally. Soon enough, friendship grows into attraction, but Levi can’t help having doubts. There’s something about Julia that doesn’t ring quite true…

Like Levi, Julia Kemps has survived her fair share of hardships—but only by hiding the truth of her past. Being an unmarried mother in an Amish community was unthinkable. Feeling hopeless, Julia did the only thing she could do: she moved to a new town and pretended to be a widow. But meeting Levi, she’s hopeful for the first time. Little by little, she begins to imagine telling him her darkest secret, and eventually…perhaps even sharing her life with him.

Christmas is a time for family, and as the holiday draws closer, Julia and Levi will have to face their pasts together…in order to find the healing, support and love they so desperately desire.

As odd as this sounds, I didn't think it was "Amish-y" enough. A bit flat in terms of plot, but I liked the characters.

This books ends The Charmed Amish Life series and pairs off the final Kissinger sibling, Levi. As with the previous book, Gray doesn't shy away from bleak situations such as physical and emotional abuse. That scenario gave this book some added suspense. As with most of Shelley's books, she weaves smaller or continuing story-lines with the main story. This helps wrap up a sweet series of books and characters by giving a future glimpse of some of our previous favorites within the series. The epilogue brings all those characters into the same home celebrating Christmas and leaving this reader with some happy tears.
