Holiday Gift Guide: The Gift Book Review

 Shelley Shepard Gray is my favorite author of the Amish Genre and The Gift does not disappoint. This story was special because it was set around the holidays. We meet a new character in the series The Amish of Hart County. Susanna is a strong and independent Amish girl. She is rather unique because she is her own person and has been raised to think for herself. A series of mishaps happen to her and her family all of which is a mystery. It is neat to see her figure out what is happening along with the other characters. My only complaint with this book is it could have been about 100 pages longer!! I just loved learning about their world and I hope Susanna's story shows up in another book in the series to see where she ends up completely.  The mystery in this book was not predictable which was a pleasant surprise.


A special Christmas story about love and blessings in the next book in the Amish of Hart County series
The Schwartz family is happy to be spending Christmas on their new farm in Hart County. But when Susanna Schwartz hears gunshots that causes her buggy to overturn, and then her little sister falls through a wooden bridge into the icy creek, it becomes clear from these dangerous "accidents" that someone wants them gone.
Neil Vance has been heartbroken ever since his parents lost their family farm. He knows it's not the Schwartz family's fault, but he can't help but be resentful. Until he meets Susanna. She is kind-hearted and bold, and Neil can't stop thinking about her pretty green eyes.

Neil thinks the accidents are just that, but Susanna's father is convinced the Vance family is responsible. Susanna refuses to believe Neil would do anything to harm her. She's fallen in love with him and knows he is a good man. But her family is ready to pack up and move, and time is running out to uncover the truth before someone gets hurt . . . or worse.
