Review of A Christmas Promise

Review of A Christmas Promise:  A Moravian Holiday Story, circa 1773

by Tamera Lynn Kraft

During colonial times, John and Anna settle in an Ohio village to become Moravian missionaries to the Lenape. When John is called away two days before Christmas to help at another settlement, he promises he’ll be back by Christmas Day. 

When he doesn’t show up, Anna works hard to not fear the worst while she provides her children with a traditional Moravian Christmas. 

Through it all, she discovers a Christmas promise that will give her the peace she craves. 
This title is part of the Christmas Holiday Extravaganza, specially priced through December 2013.

My Review:   This Moravian Christmas story set in 1773 is a special tale.   Anna and John are serving as missionaries to the Lenape Indians and things are not easy.   Life has dealt some hard punches to their family and with Christmas here, Anna wants her husband home to celebrate with the children and their church family.  He has a difficult journey to make and in seeking to protect her, he does not disclose the entire truth behind his journey.   Will he make it home in time for Christmas as he promised her?  I read this in one sitting and found it to be very informative and highly entertaining.   
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
