A friendhsip bloomed between their families that became invaluable. Will the Davises find happiness and become a family again? What will they learn from their Amish neighbors to help that? Although this book focused more on the Davis family than the Fisher family, it was still considered an Amish book. I did enjoy growing with the Davis family and watching them change as time passed by. But this was not the typical Amish books that I read.
This book made the Amish seem like anyone who knows an Amish person can change their life around for the better.

I thought the story was good overall; although I would have liked to get to know more of the Fisher family. It was a heart warming Christmas story about family, love and forgiveness.

So many authors have the Amish become resistant to accepting any advice or help or even friendship from the Americaners. The Davis family is on the brink of bankruptcy when an inheritance forces them to move from Massachusetts to Lancaster Penn. Jennnie is holding the family together with string and prayers at this point.
Until one day an inadvertent aside from her son allows her to try something new, something that could really help them get out of their financial mess. This is a character driven story that spans 2 Christmases. A lot happens in these few pages. But one this I will say is that for a while I thought Jennie was allowing herself to be the whipping post, taking garbage from each member of her family. What a difference a year makes!

What an enjoyable read between the two cultures. Yes there are differences, but there are also many of the same problems. We see how things are handled within each family, and we come to love them all. A really different story of Amish books I for one Loved it, and didn't want it to end! I was provided with a copy of this book through the Publisher Random House, and Net Galley, and was not required to give a positive review. Apr 06, Lynne Young rated it it was amazing.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a light, full of hope story of 2 very different families struggles to survive, both within the family unit and in the outside world. I loved the transformations that took place, over time, in the English family and how the Amish family, in their own quiet way, was such a positive influence on them as time went on. This is a wonderful book for the holidays or anytime.
It is filled with hope, sadness, fear, anger, rejoicing and forgiveness. I highly recommend this I really enjoyed this book. I highly recommend this book! Jan 02, Carol rated it really liked it. The plot of this book had so many similarities to An Amish Christmas that I wondered if these were different ideas the author had while writing the first book. Enough differences for me to thoroughly enjoy the book because it resulted in a totally different story. Sadly, I can't find any more books by this author.

Leaving Lancaster County (Walnut Creek Amish, #1)
I liked the characters of Jennie and her Amish neighbor Mattie. There were some negatives to the book for me though that dragged the book down.
The continued focus for half the book on the brattiness of the two teenagers was depressing. It just happened again and again. Also, the idea that the Amish neighbors changed this family could have been shown a bit more. There weren't that many interactions shown, especially not ones where lessons were learned. It I loved the overall theme of this book. It felt more like the author declared at the end that it had happened, rather than showing along the way. The interactions with Jennie and Mattie that did occur were the best part of the book, and I wish the author had spent more time there and less on the business development and relationship with her brother-in-law's family which really was an unnecessary rabbit trail.
Jul 24, Rachel rated it really liked it. This was a well written novel with interesting characters.
I enjoyed seeing the two families, one Englisch and one Amish, become friends and learn from each other in different ways. The main characters find freedom in various ways throughout their year of transitioning to living in the country as opposed to the city. What a joyful bunch of solved situations! I gave this book five stars because of what was accomplished in all the situations, dealing with unhappy teens, depressed adults, not knowing but not asking for help Great quick read! Oct 01, Lynda rated it it was amazing.
Perhaps the resolution with the family came a little too quickly , too easily. But I was in the mood for a feel-good story. And this book felt that promised beautifully.
