Publisher's Summary

For the peaceful town of Willow Ridge, November presents an early holiday surprise.

Stranded in the snow, 18-year-old Lena Esh and her boyfriend, Josiah Witmer, need more than a place to stay for the night. Lena defied her strict family and their judgmental beliefs to run away with Josiah and have his baby. But she's starting to wonder if he can prove as responsible as he is passionate, and she isn't sure how - or if - they can ever find a place to truly call home.

Expecting their own miracle baby, Miriam and Ben Hooley rally the town to help the young couple, and Lena draws strength from their unexpected support.

Though trouble may come calling, in this season of joyous rebirth, a little child will lead them. And two couples will see their dreams of forever family come true.

Great Book!!!

Charlotte Hubbard and Susan Boyce will never disappoint. The whole series is hard to put down. I have many Amish audio books and this combo is the absolute best out there today. I would and have recommended this series to friends. Charlotte knows how to write great Amish fiction and Susan Boyce brings each character to life. Amazing combo. Looking forward to more by them.

Could hardly wait...

Loved this! I was disappointed when I thought #5 was the end. Did more checking and discovered a 6th book had just become available at the end of Sept. Loved the whole series!
Looking forward to hearing more from Willow Ridge, in the Simple Gifts series, starting in 2016.

I was truly touched by the love that comes through ... I finished listening to this series while making my Christmas Cookies last year ... and I really hated to see the series come to and end.

Great Story

This last book in the series was so good. Susan Boyce has got to be the best narrator of all time. She made the story come alive. Wish I could visit Willow Ridge.

such a delightful audio

The narrator puts you into the book with her voices, reactions, expressions as she voices the read. It is a wonderful way to get into the story. I would recommend this to anyone.

Forget Self-Help Books, Inspiration is here

This Series isn’t about Christmas or Religion, It’s about attitude, embracing life, and how to develop loving relationships. If this town & it’s people exists, then I’m moving there!
