Three years ago, the man Anna Zook hoped to marry left her and their Amish community for the English world. Now devoted to proving her abilities as a midwife, Anna has given up on marriage and children for herself. But when Benjamin Miller returns, now a changed man, can delivering a Christmas baby reunite these two hurting hearts?

Love Lessons Learned:  In my story, Anna and Benjamin are faced with a situation neither of them want but which they can’t avoid. In the process of dealing with a fierce snowstorm, a blocked road, and a baby determined to arrive for Christmas, they set aside their own issues to work together. In the process, they learn that everyone deserves a second chance, and that sometimes second chances can lead to a lifetime of happiness.

A Christmas to Remember by Jo Ann Brown

When a little girl leads shop owner Amos Stoltzfus to an Amish woman in distress, he rushes them to his family’s farm. “Linda” has no memory and doesn’t know if the sweet child is her daughter or even her kin. As Christmas arrives and Linda’s identity is revealed, will Amos be able to claim his holiday guests as his own?

Love Lessons Learned: Real life romance lessons learned from the book.

Falling in love with who you are now is more important than the person you might have been once upon a time. (This is an amnesia story, so that’s a vital aspect of the plot)
