Olivia Benton, happy with her downtown floral shop in Bryson City, her rural home shared with her father, and the lavish gardens sprawling behind their mountain property, is stunned when Warner Zachary drives back into town. No one ever thought Weird Warner, or his big dreams, would ever amount to anything, and even Olivia, who loved him, was afraid to risk everything to follow Warner’s dreams. Now he’s returned to Bryson City, famous and widowed, and as soon as Olivia sees him, she realizes she still loves him – a dilemma she is not prepared to deal with.

Warner Zachary, now better known as W.T. Zachary for his famous Geeky Gilmore books for kids, has avoided even visiting Bryson City since high school graduation ten years ago. Unhappy memories linger of being bullied in school and spurned by his childhood neighbor and sweetheart, Olivia Benton. After his wife’s murder, Warner heads home to spend time with family, old friends, and to take a well-needed vacation. He knows he’ll see Olivia again but expects time to have healed his broken heart – and his anger.

As the year draws to a close, the brand-new colony of Promise Lodge is thriving, a welcoming community that offers three Amish sisters a fresh start. And as Christmas approaches, gifts big and small are given with love . . .

 As Promise Lodge’s first wedding arrives, the evidence of a community building a foundation for the future is a cause for celebration. But the bishop’s narrow-minded wedding sermon doesn’t sit well with the Bender sisters, the town’s courageous founders, especially widowed Mattie Schwartz. She believes marriage and family aren’t the most important of God’s gifts—even if she suspects her tender feelings for Preacher Amos Troyer run deeper than simple friendship.

Amos hasn’t given up hope that stubborn, spirited Mattie will change her mind about taking another husband, but when an accident threatens to change the course of his life forever, he wonders if the Lord has sent him a message. He’ll need faith, hope, and charity to find the right path—and a Christmas blessing to convince Mattie to walk it with him.

  1. I see you are eating that leftover Halloween candy, eh Susan. 🤣 I am listening to Finding Christmas by Karen Schaler and really enjoying it. Tonight I will be starting One Week Til Christmas by Brenda Missen. I just finished Apple Cider Slaying by Julie Anne Lindsey which I did as a read/listen. I loved doing it that way. I have Amish Christmas Northstar to read as one of my 20 books for Christmas, so off to check out your review. Enjoy the evening. 😃🌜📚❤️
