Amish Christmas at North Star:
Four Stories of Love and Family

Amish Christmas at North Star

A Novella Collection

With stories by Cindy Woodsmall, Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark, Amanda Flower, and Katie Ganshert

"Quite literally I believe Amish Christmas at North Star may be the perfect Christmas companion. Settle in on a chilly December day with a warm afghan, creamy hot cocoa, and this book. Pure bliss!"
   —Amish Reader

One night four lives entered the world by the hands of an Amish midwife, just outside North Star, Pennsylvania.
Rebekah's babies, as they are called, are now grown adults, and in these four heartwarming novellas each young person experiences a journey of discovery, love, and the wonder of Christmas.

Guiding Star by Katie Ganshert
Curiosity gets the best of Englisher Chase Wellington when he investigates the twenty-five-year-old disappearance of an Amish baby. When he finds adventurous Elle McAllister in Iowa, will his discoveries upend her world?

Mourning Star by Amanda Flower
Eden Hochstetler slips from her parents' fudge shop to investigate the death of her friend Isaac Yoder. Who is guilty? Isaac's handsome great nephew Jacob, an angry Englisher, or someone else?

In the Stars by Cindy Woodsmall
Kore Detweiler has nursed his broken heart, avoiding North Star after Savilla Beiler suddenly rejected his love. But when he is called to return home, he and Savilla must join forces to keep a family together.

Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark
Spurned by the woman he loves, Andy Danner left North Star to work in construction in a new Amish settlement in Mississippi. Now his little brother is devising a scheme to bring Andy home for Christmas, and in so doing unwittingly unleashes the power of forgiveness in an old widower's life.

What the Wind Picked Up

What the Wind Picked Up


This unique collection of short stories features top Christian authors at their best, demonstrating the notion that "a single idea can launch a thousand different stories." In this fascinating experiment of fiction, each of the 21 short stories in this book use the same five elements:

  • The same first line: "The wind was picking up."
  • A case of mistaken identity
  • A pursuit at a noted landmark
  • An unusual form of transportation
  • The same last line: "So that's exactly what she did."
Enjoy Mindy's contribution to this collection, her mystery short story "The Delivery." Royalties from this book are donated to the Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse.
