Review of Christmas at Pebble Creek

Review of Christmas at Pebble Creek

by Vannetta Chapman


This short story e-romance is an exclusive bonus from The Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman. Fans of the series will enjoy this chance to briefly revisit Pebble Creek, and new readers will be introduced to an Amish community that is more deeply explored in the three full novels, A Promise for Miriam, A Home for Lydia, and A Wedding for Julia. As a bonus, this eBook also includes Amish homestyle recipes for chicken and dumplings, green beans, and fresh bread. Heavy snow blankets the southwestern Wisconsin Amish community as nineteen-year-old Grace Miller closes the schoolhouse for Christmas break. She’s looking forward to having extra time to help the family prepare for the holiday, and she is hoping to get a few more drawings in of the beautiful, snowy Pebble Creek landscape. Her courtship with Adam Lapp is going on six months, and Grace can’t wait to give him his present: a blue-and-brown buggy blanket she crocheted for him. Yes, this Christmas is going to be especially joyful. Yet, amid the cheer of snowshoe outings, church potlucks, and holiday festivities, Grace is given a bittersweet reminder of the Christmas story. Grief is present with celebration, and though the future is rarely certain, she is given a heartwarming glimpse that God knows our needs before we do and will provide.

MY REVIEW:   What a delightful Christmas story !   Little Grace, the artist, has grown up and fallen in love!   I love Pebble Creek so much that I investigated to find out if it truly exists.  It does not but it would be a terrific place to go camping.   What fun to read of Grace and Adam and their friends trying to walk in the snowshoes!   I would likely fall and get hurt as that seems to be my problem lately.   This is a quick and sweet Christmas story for readers to enjoy.   The recipes for chicken and dumplings, green beans and fresh bread are a nice bonus!
