I listened to this book via a download from http://audible.com. My favorite novella was Kelly Long's Christmas Cradles. I also enjoyed Beth Wiseman's A Choice to Forgive. However the other two novellas were thin on characterization and story line and I was quite disappointed in the listen.
The narrator was mediocre at best and mispronounced many words. The ratings on audible.com are low (3's) because of the two novellas that were lacking and because of the poor narration. However, two of the stories were strong. Kelly Long's novella was definitely worth reading on its own. A strong character, an Amish midwife, Anna Stollis, falls for an equally strong handsome and capable young man, Asa Mast, as they go about delivering babies one stormy Christmas night. The hero and heroine are in their late twenties.
Kelly Marie Long is one of my new favorite authors. She really knows how to craft believable characters and her romances are the best around. Grab this book and curl up by the fire for a great read as Anna and Asa bring new life into the world while beginning their own lives together!

If you could sum up An Amish Christmas in three words, what would they be?
good but not best
Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?
All the authors were good except the last one, after listening & reading really good writers of Amish literature you just expect more, realistic, true to life writings.
Have you listened to any of Christian Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
She was good, and this was my first listen of her I think.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Come live with the Amish
Any additional comments?
Gave it 4 stars because the first 3 books were really good in the collections, the last one was really lacking, had to trudge through it all the time thinking it would be better. The first one are defiantly worth listening to.
