"A Simple Christmas Wish," by Melody Carlson

"A Simple Christmas Wish," by Melody Carlson

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.


This was a lovely book that I read in an afternoon.  It had enough "meat" in the story to keep you interested. It had me hooked from the start and the way the story was told you were not 100% sure what was going to happen next or what the outcome may have been.

The main characters were believable and the vulnerability of Holly and Rachel was well written.

Stars out of 5 : 4.5 An easy book to read and not overly "Christmassy"  You could read this any time of the year and you would enjoy it.
