Well, we have Thanksgiving first which tends to get overlooked now days, but you still have plenty of time to read this book for Christmas. In Grace you will meet a rather large family with many things going on, who run their own Bed and Breakfast. Normally they don't have any guest during Christmas. However, due to the mail running the way mail does, this year they are going to have a guest for Christmas. Before long they wind up with TWO guests at the Bed and Breakfast for Christmas!
This is throwing all sorts of kinks into everyone's plans. Some are happy, some are upset, and where do you put two strangers for a few weeks in the middle of all your family and their idea of what all is happening for Christmas?
Grace is a very nice story of, well.. grace! God's grace moves in ways we don't expect, in times we don't plan for, and His grace has plans that are beyond our imagination at times. Grace speaks of healing for broken and wounded hearts, which is what God's grace does. Simple, but yet sweet, this Amish based book is a good book to read for Christmas.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Anna and Henry will be celebrating their first Christmas as a married couple, and for Katie and Jonathan Lundy, it's their first Christmas with baby Stefan. Winnie and Samuel Miller plan to stop by as well for a wonderful two weeks of family and rest.
But when two unexpected visitors show up, hoping to stay for Christmas, the family must test their commitment to hospitality. Levi is a widower who lost his wife four years ago and can't bear the thought of another Christmas alone. And Melody is a young pregnant woman who won't open up about how she ended up on her own at Christmas at almost nine months pregnant.
Anna, who knows a thing or two about keeping secrets, doesn't trust her, and strives to find out the truth about these two strangers who have disrupted their holiday. But as the Christmas spirit descends on them all, as well as snow that traps them in the inn, a healing and hopefulness takes over, allowing new relationships to be built, and the boundaries of family to be extended.
