Light Hearted And Amusing
The Amish Christmas Gift by Laura V Hilton is a charming light-hearted contemporary Amish novel that will put a smile on your face. It is the second book in the Hidden Springs series but can be read as a stand-alone.
In spite of the light-hearted tone, there are the serious themes of guilt and forgiveness. Sometimes we pick up burdens that were never meant for us. We, wrongly, believe that what we have done is unforgiveable. This is a lie from the enemy. God asks us to come to Him and to lay our burdens and our guilt down. He asks us to live in His love and His forgiveness.
The leading lady is very accident prone. This creates some highly amusing moments. There are also some delightful and funny verbal volleys.
Love and friendship are important qualities. It is wonderful to see them bud and blossom.
We make our plans for our lives but there is One who knows us far better than we know ourselves. We would be wise to follow His plans.
Prayer is important. Prayer helps us to build a relationship with God. It is always good to know that we are not alone. “It was nice to imagine Someone out there heard and cared.”
The Amish Christmas Gift was a perfect read for a dark and gloomy December day as it will inject some light, life and humour into our lives.
