Susanna's Christmas Wish

by Jerry Eicher

OVERVIEW (from Amazon)
From the pen of bestselling Amish fiction author Jerry Eicher, (more than 350,000 books sold), comes a truly delightful and inspiring Christmas novella.
Fans will be delighted by this peek at an Amish Christmas, complete with the romantic wish of Susanna Byler to spend the holidays with the man of her dreams.  But who is the man of her dreams?  Is it the competent but plain Amishman she married for convenience....or is it her first love--an English man with whom she has recently had an unexpected encounter--and who wants her back in his life?
A perfect holiday delight for lovers of Amish fiction...and those who love a heartwarming and tender Christmas tale.

Published September 1st 2012 by Harvest House Publishers

Jerry S. Eicher wrote a heart warming Amish holiday read.  Susanna and Matthew were going to be together forever, or so she thought.  Matthew "jumped the fence" and entered into the Englisch world.  Susanna decides to go on with her life.   She begins to see Herman Wagler.  They decide to marry and things are going good. Herman 's family doesn't celebrate Christmas. Herman doesn't want Christmas in his house either.  On top of that, Susanna finds out that Matthew has returned. Will Susanna stay with Herman, the one she married out of convenience or will it be the man she truly loves, Matthew.?  Will Susanna get her wish? What will happen when Christmas comes? Will they celebrate or not? The author, Mr. Eicher, as usual wrote a lovely Christmas book. The book holds a little suspense and a little sadness.  Susanna married for convenience and that is sad.  She is not with the one she loves.  Mr. Eicher always leaves you with your heart feeling warm. The book shows a lot of love and the ability to admit you are wrong.  I would recommend this book to anyone.  It is a short read and it would be a good one to read with Christmas not too far down the road. The author has penned a beautiful, warm and loving Christmas read. Why not pick up a copy and find out if the Christmas wish comes true.

I would give this novella 4 STARS.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book, SUSANNA'S  CHRISTMAS WISH by the author, Jerry S. Eicher for my unbiased review.
