Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Shelley Shepard Gray spins a beautiful holiday tale of finding love in unexpected places.
Twenty-year-old Ruth Stutzman is a wonderful caregiver - but she has no experience with children. Laid off because of budget cuts from her job at a retirement home, she's relieved to find work - even if it means temporarily watching widower Martin Rhodes's brood of six!
Martin has been doing his best since his wife's passing, but he and the children need help. Their house, once full of laughter and light, has been darkened by sadness. Soon after Ruth arrives, the children are drawn to her warmth and gentleness, and so is Martin, even though he feels it's wrong. But the harder he tries to ignore her, the deeper he begins to care for this attractive young woman who has brought joy back into his children's lives - and his own.
Each passing day brings the Rhodes closer to Ruth - and closer to Christmas, when she will have to say goodbye. Ruth cannot deny the bond she feels with the children - and with Martin. When her old job becomes available again, Ruth finds herself torn: How can she stay with the Rhodes? And yet how can she go?

Nice Christmas Amish story

The narration was good and the book was a good story about the Amish and how they celebrate Christmas with a love story included.
