One moment, Ben Miller was high up in the rafters at his neighbor's barn raising. The next, his foot slipped and he plunged to his death, leaving behind a young wife and six children??the youngest born four months after his death.

Ruth Miller is not alone. Her Amish neighbors help her make the difficult transition from wife to widow. But while the community has been generous, raising six growing children, each grieving their father's death, is overwhelming. Devastated by her loss, Ruth isn't sure how she'll make ends meet or restore order to a house full of rambunctious kids? With help from her mother and her energetic, but untidy neighbor, Mamie, Ruth finds a way to start over. Preoccupied with the effort to create a new life and manage her shrinking bank account, Ruth barely notices John King, the handsome newcomer to her community. Besides, how could she??if she had a chance??replace Ben? Does one ever replace a husband?

As Christmas approaches, Ruth knows that she can't afford gifts for her children this year. It's hard enough to find money for groceries each week. But then banana boxes full of food, treats for the children, and even money begin to appear on her front porch. Who is leaving her these generous gifts? Is it a neighbor or a friend? Or, Ruth wonders, could it be John, who keeps unexpectedly appearing when Ruth most needs h… (mere)

This was a sweet Amish romance. Ruth’s husband has passed away and she is left to run her household with six kids! Oy! Lots of descriptions of household life, kids galore, the struggles of being a single parent with no income and the stresses of relying on the community after a death in the family. And then mysterious banana crates of food and presents begin appearing on the porch and Ruth and her children may have a mysterious benefactor. This was a sweet, quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed!

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader. ( )

I feel bad that I did not this book as much as some Amish fiction because it was written by an Amish author. I think she might have tried too hard to let non-Amish readers know that they aren't totally out of touch with our world even if they are supposed to be set apart. I was surprised at all the product placement. I did enjoy reading about the surprise boxes on their porch and the handsome benefactor. ( )

The premise of this story is very good, but was a bit rushed to make it happen at Christmas.
A poor young widow with six little children, the youngest born after her husband died tragically. A 35 year old Amish bachelor, who just bought a big mansion in town. He is dating a Amish Teacher, and then??
The whole idea of this story is heartwarming, and loved the friendship that Ruth had with Mamie...who certainly was not the stereotype Amish. She will make you laugh, but is really a good friend, just a bit lazy.
This is one quick read, and can be read in an afternoon. Get ready for Christmas with a little love and romance....Amish style.

I received this book through Net Galley, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
