A Simple Christmas Wish By Melody Carlson

One girl in need of a home. One woman in search of a home for her heart. One Christmas where it all seems possible.It felt strange to be out here in the middle of the night, still wearing the Amish dress--a dress that had belonged to Miri. Rachel's footsteps crunched in the snow, and halfway between the barn and the house, she paused to look up at the night sky, wondering if more snow was in store, but all she saw was velvety black and stars. Millions of twinkling stars. She had never seen stars like that before, so bright and so close, almost as if she could touch them with her hand.
Rachel Milligan never imagined that she and her seven-year-old niece would spend the week before Christmas on a quaint Amish farm in Ohio. But with so many unexpected occurrences of late, perhaps she shouldn't have been surprised.
With her young niece Holly in tow, Rachel anxiously makes her way from Chicago to Ohio's Amish country. As love begins to blossom, family secrets emerge, and old wounds are healed, Rachel realizes that she will do whatever it takes to ensure that Holly has the loving family she needs.
Join bestselling author Melody Carlson on an emotional journey into the heart of what family truly means at Christmastime.

 
I remember falling in love with Melody's writings last Christmas when my husband aka, the man who listens to NOTHING I say, (or so I thought), bought me Christmas At Harringtons (yeah, go read that one too!). I love the warm, dreamy feeling I get when I'm reading her Christmas novels. I can just picture the snow falling ever so lightly, the Christmas music in the air, the smell of homemade goodies! Anyways, back to the book. Melody combines two things I love most when it comes to books, the Amish, and Christmas! I love the values and lessons learned in this story, sometimes we all need someone to remind us to slow down and live simply. Live for God, not the world. I recommend you pick this one up for the Christmas lover on your list!!
