9781484972656: Bright Christmas: an Amish love story (Redeeming Romance Series)


If home is where the heart is, where do you go if your heart is torn in two, between Amish and English loves?
 
When Charity Bright intercepts a Christmas card, she is astonished to discover a long-hidden secret: she is not the sole surviving woman in her Old Order Amish family. Once, her father had a sister--a shunned aunt Charity never knew she had.

Bright Christmas: an Amish love story follows Charity and her friend, Daniel Yoder, as they venture to New York City on a purposed Rumspringa, determined to bring Charity's Aunt Hope back to the family fold by Christmas Eve. Charity and Daniel grew up as neighbors in Amish Country, but Charity nurses a private dream, that their relationship could grow to much more than the friends they've always been. Time traveling together will surely tell if she will come to be his bride.
 
One thing is certain: Charity and Daniel will be fish out of water beyond Amish Country borders. Neither knows how the other will respond to what modern life has to offer, whether it will draw them together in love, or tear them apart. As it happens, they'll have just three weeks in New York City with Hope...and Leanne, a pregnant runaway they find under Hope's wing. The English world has its allures, but none proves more powerful than the bonds of love that develop between Charity and her Aunt Hope, threatening Charity's blossoming romance with Daniel, and compelling both women to decide which place to call home.

From the author of Amazon bestselling novel 'Merry's Christmas: a love story' comes this pure, redeeming romance. Whether you're an Amish Fiction & Romance lover or completely new to the Amish drama genre, Charity's multicultural journey crosses over to all people of faith, resonating with questions, every step of the way:
 

  • How will Charity choose between those she loves?
  • What will become of her dream of marrying Daniel as an Amish bride?
  • Can Charity come to terms with her faith when it threatens her romance?
  • Will she return home for Christmas, or will she embark upon an entirely new life?
 
That is the road Charity travels in this heartrending coming of age Rumspringa adventure, across the Advent season, leading up to a Christmas she will never forget.

From the Author:

About the History of this Book
 
Long before publishing this first foray into Amish Fiction, I originally wrote this story as a screenplay for a motion picture. A beloved friend who grew up near Amish country read the first draft of that script way back when. Inspired by the script, she stopped at an Amish yard sale during a visit to her childhood home. There, she purchased an Amish dress, a Sunday apron, and a white pleated kapp. As a colleague in the entertainment industry, she knew that films can often take many years to get made. Still it was her hope that one day, these tokens of affection for this story would somehow be used in the telling of it.

Years passed. My friend lovingly stored what she had purchased.

While writing the novel based on that original screenplay, I began to think about the cover, and that kapp my friend had set aside for me years before. It communicated the simplicity and purity of this story so well. And so it was that my friend came to photograph the white kapp, along with fresh holly sprigs from her yard. Another dear friend who is a graphic designer helped fashion those photos into what you now see on this book's cover. So, it is with the generosity and love of my friends, and an enduring respect for the Amish, that I present Bright Christmas: An Amish Love Story to you. May it remind us all of the pure gift that is Christmas.

From the Inside Flap:

Source Material: Bright Christmas: An Amish Love Story is adapted from an original screenplay, previously entitled "Home by Christmas" by Susan Rohrer (Story - Copyright 2004, Screenplay - Copyright 2006, Novel - Copyright 2013).
