    1. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I loved writing it. I grew very close to the characters and the Amish community, and I found myself falling in love with the Christmas season all over agin.

    2. SUMMARY: Annie Weaver always planned to return home, but the 20-year old RN has lived in Philadelphia for three years now. As her time of rumschpringe is about to come to an abrupt end, bringing for Annie an overwhelming sense of loneliness. She returns home and finds herself face-to-face with a budding romance with an Amish farmer and Annie has several important choices to makeVIEW: I have stayed away from Amish fiction for some time as I started to find many of them very formulaic. I really en [...]

    3. Chapman’s book lived up to everything I expected from it. It was a light, fluffy read full of Christmas spirit, happy endings, and little else. She does an excellent job of exploring the Amish culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch, which gave the novel a little color. The plot was predictable, you can see it coming from a mile away, and instead of foreshadowing Chapman kind of smacks you over the head with what’s going to happen next. Her writing style is very simple which made the book a very q [...]

    4. I will start out by saying, five out of five stars.I am so glad NetGalley gave me the opportunity to review this book!What a beautiful story this book tells. It's quiet, peaceful, relaxing and beautiful.It's a story of love, it's a story about what Christmas should be about: love.Annie Weaver has just returned home after she hears of her father's terrible accident in which he broke both of his legs. She has been living with the "English" for the past few years and completed a nursing degree, som [...]

    5. Opening Sentence: “…Annie Weaver sat in the back seat of her aenti’s car, determined to hold in her tears…”When Amish children turn 16, they are encouraged to explore the world outside their community, to rebel a little. This is to give them a chance to decide if they wish to continue to follow the Amish faith. Annie Weaver was feeling restless so she opted to go and stay with her aunt and have her period of ‘Rumschpringe’. While she is away she becomes a qualified nurse. Something [...]

    6. I read this on the KindleIt a nice read while it has Christmas in the title it didn't focus just on this Annie who left the Amish before she was baptised in to the faith & she becomes a Nurse when her father has a accident she goes home to look after him the family don't know she a nurse This is a different read from some of the Amish books i have read still a very good read it has been left so it could have more in a series of the people

    7. I have read several books by this wonderful author and each story holds something very precious and unique….A Simple Amish Christmas was also a wonderful experience for me. From the first page, this book caught my attention and I was eager to see what happened next. Annie is being sent to live with her aunt during the time of her rumschpringe. However, instead of being spontaneous and having crazy fun with the Englischers, she puts herself through medical training and becomes a nurse. She beco [...]

When she gets there, she discovers that Amish “doc” Samuel Yoder has questions about he [...]

    9. My ThoughtsSamuel couldn’t accept Annie’s career as a nurse and just didn’t think she could care for her dad the way that was needed, but she was determined to convince Samuel Yoder that he was wrong! And he watched Annie care for her dad, Samuel realized she did have the skills to properly care for him, but would the community and church accept her because of her college degree?I love Amish fiction and getting to know new authors, and Vannetta Chapman is a new author for me. What an enjoy [...]

    10. An effective story about a young Amish woman who uses her time among "the English" to become a registered nurse, and then is called back to her community when her father is injured in a buggy accident. Right off the bat, Annie has an abrasive encounter with Samuel, the man who serves as the community's medical advisor -- he still recalls the flighty girl who left, and treats her as such. Over time, their relationship changes, but both of them have a lot of self-doubt to overcomeVanetta Chapman w [...]

    11. Annie is such a wonderful Amish woman. She left home at sixteen to pursue her education while living with her Aunt in Philadelphia. She is called home to help her family and she heads back without a second thought. With the holiday season upon her, she is feeling really homesick for her Amish family and their traditions. Once returning back, she quickly gets back into her Amish routine while she cares for her father. In only a month's time, she meets Samuel, who cares for all the sick in their c [...]

    12. At the age of 17, Annie Weaver is sent to live with her aunt. While doing so, she continues her education to become an RN. Let me remind you that this is against everything the Amish believe, that is receiving a higher education. One day while at work, she receives some horrible news. There has been an accident and she is asked to return home. Upon her return home, she finds herself butting heads with an Amish farmer who is having some personal issues of his own. What will this Christmas season [...]

    13. “Takes maturity to know the difference between tending to someone and caring for them.”“God finds ways to bring blessing out of every tragedy.”“No one’s always perfectly content.”“We believe in giving ourselves up to what happens in life, to what God allows to happen.”“Love doesn’t take time, it takes giving of yourself.”(Mary, Samuel’s previous wife who died)—“She would have wanted him to find another, would have expected him to move on with his life.”“The memo [...]

    14. I read this book on my Kindle.This is the first book I've read by Ms. Chapman. I really enjoyed it. I've read so many Amish books that they are starting to run together on me. But this one hit a little closer to home with the medical field being involved.Some things I noticed medically were 1) she got her high school degree and graduated with a RN degree in 3 years. I wanna know what planet that happens on, cuz there is a huge shortage of nurses, and yet waiting lists to get in.2) she had some m [...]

    15. I must say that even though Vannetta Chapman is new to the Amish genre, she created an amazing tale in which fully enthralled me. When I didn't have book in hand, I pondered on what Annie was up to, how her daed's legs were doing and how David was occupying him, and Sharon Smucker was getting alone. Let me say that I do know that the characters are fictional, but they became my friends and would love to have girlfriends like Annie, Charity, and Rebecca, and help Sharon through all the feelings s [...]

    16. At 290 pages, I thought this book might take a bit of time to read but oh how I was wrong. I was quickly immersed in the story and the pages practically turned themselves making this book a quick read.As in all of Vanetta Chapman's books, the character development is fantastic. I soon forgot these were fictional people I was reading about. The characters in this book soon became friends to me and I couldn't wait to see what happened to them. I enjoyed the storyline of this book. I found it to be [...]

    17. A Simple Amish ChristmasBy: Vannetta ChapmanI am a big fan of Amish Fiction and Vannetta Chapman knows how to write them. She brings her characters out in a way that you feel like you are right there with them.We have a young Amish girl, Annie Weaver, who left home at an early age to go and live with her English aunt.

    18. Vannetta Chapman did a great job on her debut novel A Simple Amish Christmas. It was so good I couldn't put it down and I do hope she writes a follow up book to let us know what happens to Annie Weaver and Samuel Yoder. Annie returns home from living in the English world for 3 years. She is coming home because of her sick Father. She had hopes of returning one day anyway. In the English world she went on with her schooling and became a RN. Will she be able to continue her work as a RN? Will she [...]

    19. This was a great book!! I saw it on the free list on and thought I would give it a try and am I glad I did. The book is an easy and fun read. I have not read an Amish romance in quite a while but the characters are so much fun and I did not want the book to end. The author is new and I can't wait to read more of her books!

    20. Occasionally I will pick up an Amish book to read and this is one I got on my Kindle. I read it quickly and it was an enjoyable read complete with good characterizations and a satisfying ending.Even if you are not usually a fan of Amish fiction, you might want to pick this one up for a Christmas read. I was totally charmed by it.

    21. I really liked this book but didn't give it more stars because it kinda left me hanging.ere were other stories started that weren't finished as much as I was happy to read about the couple finally getting together.wish there was a sequel.

    22. This was a pleasant read about life in an Amish community at Christmastime. I enjoyed its focus on the role of medicine and healers in the community, but other than that it wasn't really a stand-out read for me. It was an enjoyable read with nothing objectionable.

    23. A Simple Amish Christmas is an appropriate read any time of the year. You will enjoy the story line and as in all of Vannetta Chapman's books you will become involved with the characters.

    24. Annie is called home to help her Dad after an accident. She has been living with her aunt in Philadelphia for the past 3 years while doing her rumschpringe. She has gone to school and is a nurse. Her family doesn't know that she's a nurse and she's so happy to return to her Amish roots that she doesn't tell them right away but is glad to be able to help her father. She meets Samuel who she knew when she was a child and is now the acting doctor for the Amish. After a rocky start, they become attr [...]

    25. Also posted at TBR Mountain Range.A SIMPLE AMISH CHRISTMAS is a sweet, faith-based story from the Amish point of view. Well-researched, this novel is about the true meaning of Christmas and spending time with those you love.I received this book a couple years ago as a free read from Barnes and Noble for Nook, with no expectation of review.At seventeen-years-old, Annie Weaver and her Amish family decide it’s best if she spends some time with her Englisch aunt and cousins. She was struggling wit [...]

    26. Title: A Simple Amish ChristmasAuthor: Vannetta ChapmanPages: 256Year: 2010Publisher: AbingdonOne of the characteristics of this Amish novel that I love is the way the author integrates explanations of traditions into the tale. For example, how Amish communities are not all the same, but are unique in many ways. I love how there is a First Christmas then a Second Christmas with each explained and expounded so readers know the meaning of the references.Each person in an Amish community goes throu [...]
