Product Description

Ever since her step-mom brought her a snow globe of the New York City skyline, Annie has wanted to visit the beautiful, big city. Since it's nearing the time of Annie's rumschpringe-the time when Amish youth experience English life to make a decision whether to live in that world or become baptized into the Amish faith-the family decides a visit is a good idea. They watch the Macy's Christmas parade, admire the decorated store windows, skate at the Rockefeller Center rink and- Annie's favorite-get a glimpse of a writer's life while visiting the New York Times building. But others aren't as thrilled with Annie's lure to the Big Apple. Aaron has long been attracted to Annie and is sure he's in love. As he watches her engage in big city life, he grows concerned that she won't want to return to their quieter life. Will Annie follow Aaron back home? Or stay and pursue her dreams? Competing for her attention, Aaron sets out to show Annie that Christmas isn't about the glitz and glamour, but about family, love, and the birth of Jesus.

    I've loved the earlier books in the Quilts of Lancaster County series, so I enjoyed this fourth book, as well. It's like visiting with old friends, but in a new environment. Annie is all grown up, and she's ready to find her life's purpose. New York City at Christmas is magical for Annie and her family, but for Annie, it's a chance to learn more about her stepmother Jenny's life before she became Amish. Annie's father and boyfriend continually question Annie's commitment to their Amish life, and this is understandable, but they both sell Annie short. She appreciates new experiences, but she doesn't feel the need to leave her familiar Amish world. This story has an intriguing mix of Amish and modern Christmas traditions, and the juxtaposition of busy New York City and quiet Amish life adds a fun twist, as well. Annie's Christmas Wish has a lighthearted feel appropriate for the holidays, in contrast with the earlier books in the series, but is just as enjoyable to read.

    With thanks to the author for my review copy.

    Annie Bontrager's formerly Englisch stepmother was a well-known writer from New York City. On a return trip after becoming Amish and marrying Annie's father, she brought Annie a snow globe of the New York City skyline. Since her mother was chosen to receive an award for her writing the family planned a trip to New York City as a family vacation. Annie's brother was unable to join them, so Annie's long-time friend, Aaron was invited to take his place. Annie had been writing since could put pencil to paper, and this trip meant the world to her. She was finally going to see firsthand what a writer's world was all about. Throughout the trip Aaron became more attracted to Annie, more than just the friendly relationship they had always shared. As events over the course of the vacation concerned Aaron that Annie might decide to stay in New York City, tensions escalated. A learning experience for the entire family, this vacation was a crossroads for Annie. How would she react if she was offered a job there? Would she follow her dream to become a big city writer, or would her Amish roots beckon her home?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Annie's Christmas Wish. I admire Barbara Cameron for taking a different approach in this Amish story. The Amish take vacations to various resorts and landmarks comparable to other families, and the Bontrager'sNew York City adventures were refreshing. Seeing city life through the eyes of the Amish was captivating. The simple way of life yet strong beliefs of the Amish were brought to life numerous times throughout this story of radical differences in culture. The author is well educated in the Amish way of life, and her descriptive talent is commendable. Her characters were very well defined and engaging, and the descriptive qualities of the landmarks of both theBontrager's farm and the bright lights of big city were illustrative and expressive. This book is far from just a Christmas story. I recommend reading it any time of year.

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

    I love that Barbara Cameron wrote a 4th book in the Quilts of Lancaster County, and it's a Christmas book too! I really did enjoy the trip back to the little Amish community with the Bontrager family. And this time it is Annie, and her dream of writing and visiting New York, a dream she has had since her mom, Jenny brought her a snow globe back from New York when Annie was a little girl. But Annie's beau Aaron does't care of the idea because he is afraid of losing Annie to the Big city!

    Following the Bontrager family to NYC was rather fun, and especially since they were an Amish family. But I like the fact that they are Amish, but since Jenny was a big name reporter in the Englisch world, the family is exposed to a lot of the Englisch ways. And it was so heartwarming that Matthew and Jenny has such a strong relationship that even the lights and sounds, and everything NYC has to offer, it doesn't faze their relationship. All in all, this is a great story that I really enjoyed reading. If you enjoy Amish fiction, you will love this one. And don't forget to check out the first three books in The Quilts of Lancaster County Series.

    I received this book from the publisher Abingdon Press to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 55.

    I had thought that A Time for Peace was going to be the last book in this series but I was wrong. In this book we see Annie as a young woman who wants to follow in Jenny's footsteps and be a writer. She has wanted to go to New York City ever since her stepmom bought her a snow globe from there. Now with Jenny getting an award her dream is about to come true. But could her love for the big apple pull her away from her community?

    I have really liked this series so far and was excited to see another book had been written.

    What I liked: It was neat to see Matt and Jenny as older parents now. I also liked Annie. She does not quite fit the Amish mold with her love for writing and adventure yet she loves her family and community enough to stay rooted which made for a fun story. Aaron was an okay love interest. He was worried that Annie was going to want to stay in New York and not return home. Annie was not sure what she felt for Aaron so it was interesting to see how that part of the story played out.

    What I did not like: As interesting as the love story was it was not that great. Aaron and Annie just did not seem to have a good spark between them and it just felt kind of lukewarm. I also found it a little unbelievable that they watched Christmas movies at the hotel. Vacation or not I would think that would have been heavily frowned upon no matter that Jenny had not always been Amish.

    Over all this was an enjoyable book and more about Annie fulfilling a dream then it was about her finding love which is fine just a little disappointing. I strongly recommend this series. To better understand this book you really need to read the three books before it. Add them to your reading list today!
