A Lancaster County Christmas by Suzanne Fisher.

This book is a little bit early, but I loved reading it:) Didn't quite feel like Christmas time yet. But I will be pulling this book out again when it is snowing out and I am sipping a cup of coffee. It is just that type of book.

Jaime and C. J. Fitzpatrick began their married life as most couples do--in love and looking forward to a bright future together. But four years later they've drifted apart and are almost ready to call it quits.

Mattie Riehl was hoping to give her husband Sol the Christmas gift they have both longed for--news that a baby was on the way. But as usual, she is disappointed. The holidays bring an acute awareness to Mattie that her dream of a big family isn't likely to become a reality.

Then a winter storm raging outside blows the Fitzpatricks into the Riehl home--and into a much slower pace of life. Can these two couples from different worlds help each other understand the true meaning of love this Christmas?

With her trademark plot twists and attention to detail, Suzanne Woods Fisher offers readers a beautiful Christmas story of love, forgiveness, and what truly matters in life.

MY REVIEW-Suzanne Fisher does a great job pulling the reader into the story. I am not a big fan of Amish style books but this one kept me glued to the pages until I was done with it. This is not a light-hearted book. It is quite a tear jerker, yet it leaves you smiling and feeling happy. Not quite sure how to say it, but I did love this book!

My favorite character in the whole book was Mattie. I loved her attitude in life and how she and Sol go together. They have their difficulties and troubles, but overall they make a great couple. I had a harder time with the Fitzpatricks. They were nice but didn't pull at me the same way the Riehls did. The scenery was beautiful and I felt like I was in Lancaster County:) Overall a good book that would make a great gift for the holidays!!

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation.

Available September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

A sweet Christmas story set in Amish country and I would like to learn more about Sun and Mattie Riehl, the characters of Lancaster County.

Sounds like a really good book although I don't really care for Amish books
