A Carol Award-Winning Author
Amish of Pontotoc
Tillie Gingerich is so in love with Melvin Yoder that she agrees to leave her conservative Amish home to live with him in the English world. But when the struggle to make ends meet leads to conflict, and reveals troubling weaknesses in their relationship, Tillie returns to Pontotoc - pregnant and unmarried. Levi Yoder, Melvin's upright distant cousin, is grieving the loss of his wife and wants to be alone. He is hardly pleased to open his door and find a pregnant woman. But with an ice storm approaching, he can't turn Tillie away. Yet, the miracle of Christmas brings unexpected challenges, opportunities - and promises for the future.
