Amelia is eagerly anticipating her first Christmas in the west, but she soon finds that her brother-in-law’s worry and her sister’s exhaustion reach far deeper than the cares of a ranch and a family. A rash of fires and cattle thefts is plaguing the area, and the three young orphans they’ve sheltered are under suspicion from their prejudiced neighbors.
As hostilities mount, Amelia seizes every opportunity to help and encourage, but how much can one girl do? Will Reverend Brown win the community over to the true spirit of love? And will help arrive before everything they hold dear is destroyed?
Genre: Historical Christmas Christian Fiction.
My Rating: 5 Stars.
My Recommendation: Anyone and everyone! It would be an awesome Christmas read for the whole family.
My Favorite Character/s: I loved all of the characters. My favorite character is probably Amelia, she is sweet, trusting, kind, smart, and not afraid of taking care of her family or protecting them.
My Verse for Amelia is Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
English Standard Version.
My Thoughts: This was a sweet and deep story, and in a way, it reminds me of some (most) churches today with how they are hostile to bigger families, children, and people who don’t follow their ways. But anyway, I loved this amazing little story!
