An Amish Family Christmas
Shelley Shephard Gray
About the Book:
In Shelley Shepard Gray’s fourth book in her Charmed Amish Life series, an unlikely Amish romance reveals that Christmas is a time for family, miracles—and love.
Ever since his father died in a tragic fire, Levi Kinsinger has felt adrift. Newly returned to Charm, Ohio, Levi is trying to fit into his old life, only to discover he seems to have outgrown it.
But when Julia, his young widowed neighbor, asks for his help with a Christmas project, Levi finds a sense of purpose for the first time in months. She and her daughter are new to Charm and could use a friend, a job Levi takes personally. Soon enough, friendship grows into attraction, but Levi can’t help having doubts. There’s something about Julia that doesn’t ring quite true…
Like Levi, Julia Kemps has survived her fair share of hardships—but only by hiding the truth of her past. Being an unmarried mother in an Amish community was unthinkable. Feeling hopeless, Julia did the only thing she could do: she moved to a new town and pretended to be a widow. But meeting Levi, she’s hopeful for the first time. Little by little, she begins to imagine telling him her darkest secret, and eventually…perhaps even sharing her life with him.
Christmas is a time for family, and as the holiday draws closer, Julia and Levi will have to face their pasts together…in order to find the healing, support and love they so desperately desire.

An Amish Family Christmas: A Charmed Amish Life Christmas is the fourth book in The Charmed Amish Life Series written by Shelley Shepard Gray. This was a great book that I enjoyed. Christmas is a time for love, family, peace and sometimes the occasional miracle. Levi Kinsinger lost his father in a tragic fire and has since been floating adrift in this thing called life, until he moves to Charm, Ohio. Julia Kemps has also survived her share of hardships and moved to Charm to start over. Julia befriends Levi and asks for his help with a Christmas project. Their relationship seems to grow to something more than friendship but will their secrets keep them from love.
An Amish Family Christmas is a must read story of love, miracles, and family. Where two lost souls have to let go of their pasts to move on to their future. Ms. Gray has outdone herself once again!! This book would definitely make a great stocking stuffer for those who love to read.
