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 and Performance

This whole series kept me hooked the entire time. Every character was unique and brought a great light to the story. The author did a great job of teaching about the Amish while providing mutual respect for both English and Amish. The performance was absolutely amazing!

A Great Inspirational Story

This book was not only a attention-getter, but served as great inspiration. It gives an insight to the faith of plain people, but also is open about those who fail.
