Book Review - A Simple Christmas Wish by Melody Carlson

Publisher's blurb: Rachel Milligan never imagined that she and her seven-year-old niece would spend the week before Christmas on a quaint Amish farm in Ohio. But with so many unexpected occurrences of late, perhaps she shouldn't have been surprised.

With her young niece Holly in tow, Rachel anxiously makes her way from Chicago to Ohio's Amish country. As love begins to blossom, family secrets emerge, and old wounds are healed, Rachel realizes that she will do whatever it takes to ensure that Holly has the loving family she needs.

My Review: I found this book interesting & frustrating at the same time. Learning how other people live is always interesting, and adjusting to different lifestyles can be challenging. I liked the characters in this book. I did feel Rachel was a bit too much of a pushover and could have been more assertive. I would recommend this book to others.
