An Amish Family CHRISTmas Review!!!

An Amish Family Christmas 
by Shelley Shepard Gray

Book Description:
An Amish Family Christmas (Avon Inspire, October 2016)

In Shelley Shepard Gray's fourth book in her Charmed Amish Life series, an unlikely Amish romance reveals that Christmas is a time for family, miracles---and love.

Ever since his father died in a tragic fire, Levi Kinsinger has felt adrift. Newly returned to Charm, Ohio, Levi is trying to fit into his old life, 

only to discover he seems to 
have outgrown it.

But when Julia, his young widowed neighbor, asks for his help with a Christmas project, Levi finds a sense of purpose for the first time in months. She and her daughter are new to Charm and could use a friend, a job Levi takes personally. Soon enough, friendship grows into attraction, but Levi can't help having doubts. There's something about Julia that doesn't ring quite true . . .

Like Levi, Julia Kemps has survived her fair share of hardships---but only by hiding the truth of her past. Being an unmarried mother in an Amish community was unthinkable. Feeling hopeless, Julia did the only thing she could do: she moved to a new town and pretended to be a widow. But meeting Levi, she's hopeful for the first time. Little by little, she begins to imagine telling him her darkest secret, and eventually . . . perhaps even sharing her life with him.

Christmas is a time for family, and as the holiday draws closer, Julia and Levi will have to face their pasts together . . . in order to find the healing, support and love they so desperately desire.

My Opinion:
GREAT wrap up!!!  Shelley really knows how to wrap up a series! :)  These were some of my all time favorite characters from her!  This is a FABULOUS CHRISTmas read and if you've followed the series it CAN NOT be missed!!!!!!!  Focusing more on sweet kids instead of the animals this time, I truly enjoyed all of these characters!  There's a touch of suspense in the mix with this one and a touch of gritty reality that has been flowing through this whole series!  This story is about change, hope, family, and love!  What a year these siblings have been through!!!!  Completing the four siblings tales, Levi picks up the plot and finds what his siblings have already found!  Continuing also with Tess I really LOVED her stories continuation!  There's a scene where she and another character are so open and honest about what they are feeling!  I LOVED it!  It is so refreshing among the suspense and turmoil of hidden secrets and feelings from other characters!  With the characters coming together in REALLY GREAT scenes and their pasts colliding with their present, this is a highly entertaining read and became one of my favorites of the series!

Songs: "You Carry Me" by Moriah Peters, "If We're Honest" by Francesca Battistelli, and "
