Start your review of An Amish Christmas Wedding: Four Stories
This is an Amish Christmas book. This book has four short stories in it. My favorite of the four short stories was Holiday of Hope by Kelly Irvin. I enjoyed each story, but I wished they where longer, but they are short stories. The stories do not have anything to do with each other, but they all are well-written. I normally do not like short stories, but I really liked these short stories. I was kindly provided an e-copy of this book by the publisher (Zondervan) or author (Amy Clipston, Kathlee ...more

These four novellas are sure to get you in the mood for the holidays.
I will warn you up front a few are really good and you are going to be a little bit upset that they are so short, that you are left wanting more.
My absolute favorite one was Holiday Of Hope by Kelly Irvin and let me tell you about Evergreen Love by Amy Clipston you are going to want to scream they are not long enough at all.
I gave this book of four novellas 4 stars and I will happily share it with others this holiday season. Yo

There is something extra special about Christmas books and that this one has four novella length Amish stories by my favorite authors is a bonus.
I'll admit to reading Christmas books not just at Christmas time but all year for that warm fuzzy feeling they bring me. They are a warm hug with a cup of hot cocoa kind of book that I can't get enough of.
An Amish Christmas Wedding is such a fun and clean romance story, a fast read for me.

The stories in this collection are so sweet. I love the book cover.

I have read books by three out of the four authors. I am so honoured to read a story by Vannetta Chapman.

The food in this book made me hungry.
I wanted to live in an Amish community so I can eat along with them. Isn’t it funny when your imagination goes wild while reading a book?

What do you say to a wedding set around Christmas?

Christmas is my favourite season in a year apart from birthdays. Reading this novel made me realise that
An Amish Christmas Wedding contains four delightful and heartwarming Amish stories from Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller, Kelly Irvin, and Vannetta Chapman. I found all of them to be well-written with steady pacing and charming characters. There are lovely themes in each book. Love, hope, grace, faith, and second chances are just a few of them. I enjoyed reading about the Amish Christmas traditions where they focus more on God and family than on material things. Of course, I just loved the Christma ...more

A collection of Christmas novellas by four well know authors captured this reader and left her with the holiday spirit . Each novella either ended with a Christmas Wedding or proposal. I'm not usually much for short stories but An Amish Christmas Wedding proved I had the wrong attitude and changed my mind about them. I loved the eye catching cover and I found that I had a good reading experience with this book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Zondervan through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

I am growing fond of the compilation books especially Christian Fiction about love at Christmas. Out of all of the stories featured in an Amish Christmas Wedding, my favorite had to be Evergreen Love by Amy Clipston. Reading this story and the forgotten love between Ryan and Lorene reminded me a lot of Jane Austen's Persuasion with the stories being very similar.

Four short stories that will have you quickly turning the pages, you can read one, but they are that good that you will be moving on to the next one.
The stories are not connected, they contain good life lessons, the first one we had a young man who seems like he can't really commit, but keep reading maybe this couple or former couple needs to talk.
The second, this young boy has been through so much, more than anyone should, especially a child. He did make me chuckle with some of his antics, but

Wonderful stories of hope and inspiration! I think the last story was my favorite, though. Such a simple and precious love between Micah and Rachel. Refreshing to read a story about love between a couple in their late 50's early 60's. A wonderful reminder that God has a plan for our life, no matter what age we are. ...more

This is such a nice collection of Amish Christmas stories! I really enjoyed all of them, but Evergreen Love was my absolute favorite! These were all a quick read for me. I have always loved these collections because you get to sample stories from talented authors!

I love novella collections, especially holiday-themed ones, so I was excited to read this book. I have read many books by all of these authors in the past. They're some of my favorites when it comes to Amish fiction.

As is true with all novellas, these stories were quick reads, which made it easy to fit them into a busy schedule. Realistic characters and scenarios about with each story.

The stories aren't connected, other than the Amish theme. Friends, family, and love are key themes in each one.

These four short stories were so much fun to read. I enjoyed each of the couples stories. I especially enjoyed the last one about Micah, Rachel and Chloe.

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for the arc. The opinions expressed are my own.

This collection includes 4 short stories (novellas) from well known Amish Christian fiction authors.

Each story has a common theme of forgiveness, love, family and the joy that the holidays bring. Each individual story was fun to read and different in its own way. I really enjoyed reading each one. Because they are short stories they can be read quickly and will definitely get in the holiday spirit!

A fantastic collection of Amish romance novellas set at Christmas time. Fans of Amish fiction will love these sweet tales of romance during the Christmas season. I received an advance ebook from the publisher and netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

Four charming Christmas stories in one collection. What more could a reader ask for!?
All four authors have written stories that, while they don’t play off each other, all of them have a thread of faith and family. From young couples, to an older couple, all find love and second chances at Christmas.

I thoroughly enjoyed the sweetness of each story, with well developed characters who grow when they allow God to work in their lives. If you enjoy Amish stories I highly recommend this collection.

A wonderful Christmas novella written by 4 well known authors of Amish fiction. Each story has a different theme. Amy Clipston gives us Evergreen Love. A story dealing with misunderstanding. Kelly Irvin shares A Holiday of Hope. Her focus is on life's challenges. Kathleen Fuller's Wreathed In Love deals with friendship vs love, and finally Vannetta Chapman's A Christmas Prayer explores loneliness with older adults who are young at heart.

I've found myself wanting to read Amish fiction more and more during the crazy times we're currently living in, as there's just something so calming and peaceful about reading books set in the Amish culture. I knew when I saw the description of this one that it was probably going to be something I was going to end up enjoying, and I was definitely proven right.

I appreciated how each of the novellas were about Christmas, finding love and the importance of faith no matter what, but that each is wr

This is a decent set of short stories from major writers of Amish romance. The first story asks the question -- what do you do when your sister announces her engagement to your ex-fiance's brother?

These are good stories for fans of the genre or anyone else looking for a gentle read with a happy ending.

This is a delightful grouping of Christmas novellas by famous Amish writers, Amy Clipston, Kelly Irvin, Kathleen Fuller and Vannetta Chapman.

Each story shows the magical feeling that the Christmas season brings. Former loves reunited, a child needing a parent and those who try to help him overcoming their own loss and grief, senior adults facing the loneliness of being without a partner, and best friends who have parted ways all lend to gripping stories of find loves lost and new love.

This is a set of four short stories about Amish love and romance set around the Christmas season. I have read numerous books by all of these authors and they are all some of my favorites. Even though all of the stories were great and the characters well developed, the first story, Evergreen Love, was probably my favorite of the four. Amy Clipston is one of my favorite authors who always creates characters who the reader can honestly relate to.

Thank you to the publisher, Zondervan and Net Galley

Thoroughly engaging, this quartet of stories is truly inspirational. Each story stands alone, yet they all fit together so well. Each tale has a difficult situation to overcome, second chances and a healthy dose of romance.
