A Lancaster Christmas, Suzanne Woods Fisher

In this touching tale of God's faithfulness and love two worlds are forever changed and lives are mended in unlikely ways.

Jaime Fiztpatrick doesn't realize that what she considers a chance meeting in a doctor's office is actually an action of God's mighty hand. Struggling with the loss of her mother and the insecurities of a father who left her as an infant Jaime is in constant search of who she is. She is now in a struggling marriage and is trying to involve her long absentee father into her life.

Mattie Reihl is overcome with grief. She feels the weight of being unable to have more children pulling her down. After her recent miscarriage she feels that there is no hope left and her life seems devoid of joy and peace. Struggling to maintain faith but also trying to control her life she feels her old self slipping further and further into a grey oblivion of desperate sadness.

Little did these women know that God intended for them to help each other find the answers to their deepest questions and longings and to rediscover His love for them.
When Jaime drives to the Reihl farm to return little Danny's whistle she finds herself trapped in a winter storm with her husband CJ.

There the two families are thrown into a weekend that will forever change them. This is a sweet and amazing book.
