Sarah Beachy seems very contented living in her small Amish community in Ohio. She loves her family, has an interested beau Adam Troyer, and enjoys her work at the Country Pleasures Bed and Breakfast where Englishers from all over the state come to stay for a taste of the Amish. Perhaps the only negative is her older brother Caleb left the People to join a construction company in Cleveland. Sarah wants Caleb home for Christmas after being away for over four years. This Thanksgiving she decides, over the objections of her parents, to go to the big city, find her sibling and persuade him to come home. This is an exciting family drama as most of the tale follows the courageous heroine as a small fish in the big pond of Cleveland trying to find and convince her brother to come home. The story line is character driven and not just by Sarah as her Mamm prays to God to keep her children safe and bring them home while Adam struggles not to go after the woman he loves but instead places his faith in God and her. Not a romance by any stretch, and the Caleb situation is too simplified as one wonders "How you're going to keep him down on the farm after he has seen" Cleveland. Harriet Klausner

Sarah Beachy seems to have it all! As a 19 yr old Amish girl she has a job she loves working in a Bed and Breakfast, she has been dating Adam Troyer, and he would like nothing better than if she would join the church so he can make her his wife. She has never questioned wanting to be Amish, but to settle down and have children is something she can't do until she gets finds some answers to problems that have been bothering her.Her brother Caleb had left the Amish faith several yrs ago, joining a construction crew and leaving for Cleveland and for all intents and purposes never looking back. The question she has is simple enough, what would make someone leave his family and faith, her brother holds the answer, so Sarah takes a trip to Cleveland to get answers, hoping she can at least convince him to come home for Christmas.This is a very short story, unlike most Amish stories I have read it doesn't really center around a romance, even though we are given a glimpse of Sarah and Adam's relationship this story is more about redemption, faith, a mother's love, and a young ladies quest to find answers and hopefully bring her wayward brother home for Christmas.This book is a very quick read and if your a fan of Amish fiction, with a holiday twist then you wont want to miss this book!This book was provided by Readers Favorite for review.

Christmas + Amish= two of my favorites. However, this book is a TRIPLE bonus for me. First, it's a Christmas one. Second, it's Amish. And third, it's written by one of my favorite Amish authors-Mary Ellis. She creates her stories with a passion for God. Her words and characters grab the reader and settle them in the middle of the story, and surround them with friends and family and love. Sarah's Christmas Miracle is a sweet, simple story filled with hope, longing and redemption. It's short and easy to read-I read it in one day- and you instantly fall in love with Sarah, who just wants one little Christmas miracle: her now English bruder to return to the Amish. Through God, prayers and unwavering hope, Sarah is determined to have that miracle, so she can have a peace of mind, about her bruder, her parents and her beau. I really loved her character and her perseverance. Mary Ellis has a 5 star book with this one. Again, I say it's not a big book so it could be easily read most anywhere. If you love Christmas and/or Amish, then you MUST read Sarah's Christmas Miracle. It's a wonderfully written book filled with lessons for everyone, and love for God.

Mary Ellis has done it again with this wonderful story of Christmas, love, family, and faith.Sarah travels to Cleveland to find her brother and discover why he left home. Her trip to Cleveland leads her home to Fredericksburg and leads her brother to a Catholic church. Christmas miracles do happen as Ellis proves in this book.

I had the privilege of reading Sarah’s Christmas Miracle by Mary Ellis. What a great book! I love all her stories - Amish or Historical. She writes with such depth and describes the places and people so intricately that I feel as though I’m part of the family. I feel in love with Sarah’s family immediately and loved how she went back and forth between the “Englisher” world and the Amish world so effortlessly. Ms. Ellis’ books always have an undercurrent of spiritual truths throughout and this was no exception. You can feel the love of God throughout the family without it being forced or appearing fake. This was a great novella to get anyone into the spirit of Christmas and remember exactly why we celebrate to begin with. I will be recommending this book (and all of Ms. Ellis’ books) to all my friends. They are the type of books that everyone loves as they speak to us all no matter what stage of life we are in. I can’t wait to read the next book Ms. Ellis writes - I know I will love it as much as I have her others.

This was an excellent Christmas story. Mary Ellis did an excellent job writing this story. God gave her a good messages to get across to us readers for Christmas and every day of the year. "Life is not always green on the other side." "Your sins will and are forgiven."

I love the Amish fiction. Sarah Beachy has a job she loves at an english bed and breakfast, a boyfriend who wants to marry and a family who loves her dearly. So why is she not content? Her english boss has two children who may not be home for Christmas and her own brother hasw been gone for 5 years to his life in the english world. She worries that she could have children some day who would leave and break her heart too. This is a wonderful story about what she discovers about life and herself.
