About the Book



"Founded by five unmarried and enterprising Amish maidels, the new Morning Star Marketplace in small-town Missouri is preparing for a joyous Christmas season. But will the holiday also bring unexpected tidings of love? Twin sisters Molly and Marietta Helfing are eagerly anticipating Christmas, with Marietta fully recovered from cancer and their noodle making business thriving. But Molly clearly misses having former tenant Pete Shetler and his rambunctious dog, Riley, around. Marietta can't ignore Molly's feelings for Pete--or the anxiety it stirs within her. Convinced her illness has made her unmarriageable, Marietta wonders what kind of life she'll have if her sister marries--despite Molly's promise to never leave her behind . . . Then a fire destroys the home of Amish neighbors and Molly and Marietta graciously make room for widower Glenn Detweiler, his dat, and his two young boys. When Pete returns to help the family rebuild, Molly relishes her reunion with the handsome carpenter, while Marietta delights in mothering Glenn's boys--and is surprised by her poignant bond with their quiet, brooding father. Soon everyone is wondering if this season will bring the blessing of a merry double wedding to Morning Star . . ."--Page 4 of cover.

About the Author



Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle. Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people--to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle--and the foundation of all her Amish romance series. She's a deacon, a dedicated church musician, and a choir member. When she's not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.

I'm really loving this series

4 out of 5 stars

I just love this series. Each charming book picks up right about where the previous one left off. And yet you don't even need to have read the others to understand what is going on in this specific story. The main focus is always on the couple-at-hand (or in this case, make that double), but there's just enough of an explanation of those already paired off to help you understand, without giving away too much information. That being said, I would still recommend reading them all at some point. A lot has happened to our maidels in just a few short months. It's been fun watching their relationships grow. You just knew early on that Molly and Pete were going to fall for each other because of the way they bickered and picked one each other. It's just Pete has an awful lot of growing up to do in spite of his age. You just want to kick him so many times. And you hope that Marietta can find love. It's hard enough to be an older Amish woman, let alone one who is now considered deformed and cannot bear children. She has a big heart and you just want to see her happy. And you want the twins to figure it out around the same time so that their separation doesn't lead to a long isolation, since they have been together their entire lives. Christmas is often a magical time, even in the Amish realm. Glenn is a tough one. His previous behavior has left a lot of a bad taste in my mouth, though I understand why he has been such a mess. It's not fair that some people seem to take a bigger hit than others, though that often leads to the person growing into a better version of himself. As with the previous books in this series, I was left with a warm and fuzzy feeling and plenty of smiles throughout. Now we just need to find out what is going to happen with Jo! And what is going to happen to the Marketplace when all of our maidels are settled in their new lives.

A heartwarming Amish tale!

Christmas Comes to Morning Star by Charlotte Hubbard is the 3rd book in The Maidels of Morning Star series. I recommend reading this heartwarming series in order. I thought Christmas Comes to Morning Star was well-written with developed, friendly characters. I love the maidels in this series. This book focuses on Molly and Marietta, but we also get to catch up with Jo. Jo Fussner likes Michael Wengerd, but her mother’s bitterness is standing in her way. Love, hope, grief, community, and family are the themes of this story. I enjoyed catching up with Lydianne and Regina as well. Bishop Jeremiah Shetler is a kindhearted man who cares about those in the community. Bishop Shetler is a good man who is eager to marry Lydianne. Two of the women have found love, and we are hoping the other three will as well. The Marketplace sounds like a wonderful place with all the fabulous shops filled with homemade Amish goods. Christmas Comes to Morning Star is a story that puts you in the Christmas spirit (even though it is August). Christmas Comes to Morning Star is a comforting tale with homemade noodle pudding, a devastating fire, a disagreeable mother, a caring bishop, and three unmarried maidels.

I have just loved this series and book 3 was a wonderful conclusion, although I wish it could continue. But I am sure Charlotte Hubbard will continue with other wonderful books! This was an inspirational and sweet conclusion at the wonderful time of Christmas. Marietta and Molly are the main characters of this book. These twins are strong, caring and just wonderful despite what has happened to Marietta as she has recovered from cancer but has been a wonderful help to Glenn, who himself has experienced more trials than he feels he can handle. As she ministers to his children, he sees hope for a future, but Marietta feels that she could not be the wife he needs or wants. It's a touching story and brings happiness to the soul. A very lovely book that I would happily recommend to others. I received a copy of this book from the author and NetGalley. All thoughts are my own.
