There should be a warning label on this book:
WARNING: DO NOT PICK UP THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING IMPORTANT TO DO!
Seriously… if you pick it up, you won’t be able to put it down unless someone makes you.
Laura V. Hilton is putting out some positively amazing books lately! Not to say that her previous books weren’t great but to be honest, I didn’t get pulled into them like I did with A White Christmas in Webster County and The Snow Globe – I was blessed to review an advanced copy of this wonderful book which is scheduled for release in November of this year.
A White Christmas in Webster County is actually scheduled for release September 15th so this is a bit of an early look at it too!
The story is wonderful and original to boot. This is definitely not a story you see over and over, and it certainly isn’t a plot you would ever expect to see in an Amish Fiction story but it works, it really works!
Wonderful to realize that, while their faith may differ somewhat from ours and they certainly live their lives more plain, the Amish are not so different as we might think! I know I related to Mercy in a lot of ways.
I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see what’s next from Laura!
Don’t miss a single book!
Here is more about “A White Christmas in Webster County” from Whitaker House:
A Mother’s Helper
Mercy Lapp is ready for a fresh start. Having lost her beloved fiancé in a fishing accident during his rumschpringe, she escapes the painful memories by moving from her community in Shipshewana, Indiana, to Seymour, Missouri, where she takes a job as a mother’s helper. She isn’t exactly shy, but she’s hesitant to get involved with the youth in the community because she isn’t going to stay. She especially doesn’t want a new romance.
An Adventurous Hero
Abner Hilty is excited to see his twin brother, Abram, for the first time in years. The two fled their hometown of Shipshewana when their witness of a murder put their lives in danger, Abner heading to Montana to work on a ranch and hunt big game, Abram meeting a girl in Missouri, marrying, and settling down there. Abner decides to spend the holidays with them in Seymour, but he has every intention of returning to Montana, maybe even for good.
An Unexpected Snowstorm
At a chance encounter, Abner is immediately drawn to Mercy, and even more so when he realizes that they’ve met before, back in Shipshewana. Initially alarmed, Mercy soon warms to his attentions, even though she keeps him at arm’s length. She also branches out and begins attending youth functions, forming new friendships that are solidified during a rare snowstorm. Just when Mercy and Abner are beginning to think about a long-term relationship, Mercy gets a phone call that changes everything. The information would have been welcome months ago, but now that she knows Abner, she’s torn, and she will have to do some serious soul-searching to decide how to act on it.
