Inspirational Amish

Wanda Brunstetter and her daughters Jean and Richelle bring us a delightful Christmas story that spans three generations. In LUELLA'S PROMISE, by Wanda Brunstetter, Luella Ebersol takes a job caring for Dena Zook and her young son Daryl. Luella cooks, cleans, watches Daryl and does all the things that Dena can no longer do. Her days on this Earth are limited. Before Dena passes, she gives Luella a beloved Christmas quilt and asks her to promise to stay on after she dies and take care of her husband Atlee and son Daryl. Luella isn't sure Atlee will want that, but she makes Dena the promise. The weeks are somewhat rocky as Luella cares for Daryl and tries her best to help Atlee feel like living again. A friendship blossoms between them, and people begin to talk about their age difference. Atlee is sixteen years her senior. Should Luella take another job elsewhere? Or will this friendship become something more?

In KAREN'S GIFT, by Jean Brunstetter, Karen Allgyer has moved from the only home she\'s ever known to Lykens, Pennsylvania with her husband. They are raising their three young daughters, away from family and close friends. Her husband Seth likes it here and is determined to stay, even though he knows Karen is unhappy. With their marriage already on the rocks and difficulties at work, they learn that their baby is deaf. Seth begins to pull away even more. Karen find comfort in the Christmas quilt her mother gave her on her wedding day and the scripture inscribed on it. Will their marriage last?

ROSEANNA'S GROOM, by Richelle Brunstetter, is the concluding part of this generational saga. Roseanna is left at the altar by her groom. He just simply runs out of the tent during the service and leaves town a few days later. Can she pick up the pieces of her life and move on?

THE BELOVED QUILT brings us stories of hope and assurance that God is our rock and strength in times of trouble. We don't always understand His plan, we just need to have faith and trust He knows best. Our life doesn't always go like we plan. The characters in each of these stories are strong and endearing. The settings are in small Amish communities in Pennsylvania, where the Amish and Englisch mesh their lives seamlessly with each other. If you're looking for an inspirational Christmas story this season, this is a great one!
