The Amish Christmas Promise by Amy Lillard

The Amish Christmas Promise

A proposal out of obligation could become a promise of love…

Pregnant Amish widow Mattie Byler is stunned to find her late husband’s shunned twin brother at her door. Samuel Byler is back to fulfill a promise: to marry Mattie. Only he’s not the rogue Mattie remembers. This Christmas, he’s determined to do right by her and the community. Saying “yes” feels impossible. But if Samuel's vow won’t heal her grieving heart…maybe his love can.


When does duty become a privilege? When does a promise become a blessing? Amy Lillard shares a poignant story of loss, trying to move forward, and finding your way back home. I fell in love with the recently widowed young woman who must struggle to build a new life for her children, and the man who's determined to fulfill a promise he made to her husband may be one of the best heroes ever!

The Amish Christmas Promise is an emotional story that tugged at my heartstrings and reminded me of the power of faith and forgiveness. Mattie and Samuel's growing awareness of each other is both sweet and tantalizing but there is one enormous hurdle to overcome. Is the shunned Samuel willing to ask for forgiveness from his Amish community?

This is Lillard's first Harlequin title but I'm sure it won't be her last! This book has endearing characters, an Amish Christmas setting, and an inspiring faith message! I highly recommend The Amish Christmas Promise to all who enjoy Amish Christian romance.

I received a complimentary digital copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review.
