As Christmas approaches in Amish country, the setting for Naomi’s Gift: An Amish Christmas Story (Zondervan), 24-year-old Naomi King is feeling more like an old maid than ever before. But as she goes about her regular tasks of helping out with the family quilting business and taking care of eight (!) siblings, she meets Caleb, a young widower with a seven-year-old son, and her world is turned upside down.
“I hope this story gives readers a sense of hope,” author Amy Clipston says. “Even though it sometimes feels like life isn’t going the way we want it to, God still has a plan.”
