Suzanne Woods Fisher’s newest book, A Lancaster County Christmas, looks at the intersecting lives of two families. Mattie Riehl, an Amish mother, finds herself unable to have any more children, and she is questioning God’s will for her life. Jaime, an “Englisher” is questioning her career and her relationship with her husband C.J. When Jaime and her husband find themselves trapped at the Riehl farm after a winter blizzard, they being to face their issues as they face difficulty during the blizzard.
I really enjoyed this book, and I was able to finish it in the span of a day. The book looked at issues that all people are able to relate to: children, jobs, parents, and even spouses. I found myself relating to the character of Jaime in that she was questioning the next move in her life. She wasn’t sure what job she was meant to do, and she would not make a place for Jesus in her life. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quick, inspirational read.
