When Sadie’s carefully laid plans fell apart, she sought refuge in her mission trips to Peru. But years later when everything around her begins to crumble again, will she have the strength to go on? Is Levi a part of her future, or will her bitter past steal him away too?
From the start, Sadie is faced with a difficult choice; one that will change her life forever. Throughout the book she grows closer in her relationship to God, and it was a joy to see her spiritual journey unfold. For me, this wasn’t the kind of book you read in one sitting. Instead, it is more of a chapter-by-chapter process. I grew fond of Sadie and Levi over time, but it didn’t happen right away. Instead it took several chapters before their personalities and struggles won me over. There were a few parts I found hard to get through, but there were also some chapters I didn’t want to end. It’s a pretty short book to cover the amount of information, but it doesn’t feel rushed due to the length either.
This was an interesting book with a rather distinct premise, although like most romances it was somewhat predictable. This is not really a fast paced book; it’s more of a slow-but-steady romance. It was not completely centered on Christmas as the title leads you to believe, but Christmas does factor into the storyline somewhat. All in all this was a sweet, shorter romance. It’s a book I would recommend if you like Amish fiction.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
