About the series
The series takes place in the space of about a year. Following a disaserious fire at the lumber mill owned by the family book one opens with Lukas Kinsinger (A Son's Vow) taking over the business after their father perishes in the fire. Leaving him to take care of some of the other children in the family. This story is about a sweet romance between Lukas and Darla whose father was accused of starting the fire.
Book two is about Luka's sister younger sisters Rebecca and her indecision about what to 'do with her life' she has always wanted to be a teacher. She is torn between her desire and love of teaching and her commitment to the family and the business.

And what I thought...
A lovely story tying up a great ending (sadly) for a great series.
I really enjoyed the series. Each book was better and better.
The Christmas story brought a real happy ending.
This series brings to light the sad situation of emotional and physical abuse.
An Amish Family Christmas focuses on a story line of centered around Julia a young woman that was physically abused by her boyfriend.
She meets the Kinsinger family when she becomes involved with Levi. Levi had left town earlier in the series after the fire at the lumber mill which took their fathers life.
This is great heartwarming story. The series is really good.
If you enjoy just good clean reading you won't be disappointed.
