In A Simple Amish Christmas, by Vannetta Chapman, Annie Weaver’s rumschpringe has come to an end, because her father was hurt in a buggy accident. She will need to take care of him for her family. She isn’t sure if she should tell the others in her family that she is a registered nurse.
Samuel Yoder is the person who has been watching Annie’s father since he came home from the hospital. Samuel is suspicious of Annie. He doesn’t think she can do the job. He is sure in for a surprise.
Will they have a good working relationship? Will she tell him what she has been doing in Philadelphia?
About the Author- Vannetta Chapman currently lives in the Texas hill country. This book is her debut novel.
My Thoughts- I really enjoyed reading Vannetta Chapman’s debut novel, A Simple Amish Christmas. It was the first book I have read about the Amish where somebody’s rumschpringe actually had a major impact on their community.
I was impressed with Annie Weaver. She was strong when she was faced with all of the negativity from Samuel Yoder. Samuel never realized how strong Annie’s dedication was to her father, family, and her community. He was still thinking of her as someone with an eighth-grade education, a child. She was so much more than that. As a romantic, I’m glad they came to an understanding and were able to work with each other.
One of my favorite parts of the book was the end, because of the glossary of Amish words and the interview with Chapman. An interview is a great way to learn more about the author and the book.
I recommend reading A Simple Amish Christmas.
