Finding someone special

It’s Christmas and Gregory is desperate to find someone special to spend Christmas and more with. Finding love is more important than materialistic things, especially in the Amish community. Unfortunately, Gregory is having a string of bad luck and his love life isn’t going the way he would like.

I really like the narrator of this story. This is about the journey to finding the one rather than the chemistry. Overall a good performance.

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Long periods not relavent to the story

This story is written from the male perspective and the story is slow. The man is self abasing and he does a lot of pity parties. I'm glad he found someone to live his life with, because listening to his inner thoughts was sometimes painful. This story would have been done better with a male reader. The story itself is has long periods of nothing happening and I'm not sure that it is relevant to the story.

Reads like a Dick and Jane book

Not very realistic in how a person reacts no matter who they are or where they came from. It’s so studderingly slow I couldn’t stand it! I hardly ever write reviews but felt I needed to warn others.

Amish male perspective

This story was told from the perspective of an Amish male. We find out that the men are as worried about finding someone to be with as the women are. We also get a glimpse at what heartache is caused by rejection. It was nice to see a young Amish male that preferred to be quiet in his rumspringa and not rush into town to celebrate his freedom. There was a certain amount of "oh, woe is me," but it was in character and I loved the way he chose to overcome this negativity. Overall, a lovely and sweet Amish story.

So enjoyable

Amish Christmas Of A Lifetime (Amish Love Of A Lifetime #4) my third read from Christian author Sadie Palmer. Samantha Schuster & her boyfriend's story continues. Perhaps even better than her first 2 Amish Love Of A Lifetime books I read. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reading & reviewing it. Julie Lancelot’s narration was not as enjoyable as it was in the first 2 books, still, it adds to the book's enjoyment. I need to get An Amish Love Of A Lifetime Book 1. I'll definitely be reading more from this author. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

an Amish man hopes and dreams

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is the first I have read with the man's point of view and his hurts and dreams. Very good story! It is also the first I have read or listened to where Amish parents were called mom and dad instead of maam and dat. I look forward to hearing more from this author.

HEARTACHE

Gregory had been courting thoughts of marriage and settling down when she broke it off. Following the guidelines for courting. With another disappointment, wants to make changes within himself, being positive, to finding a true love. Which with the Amish is a lifetime. Good story of heartbreak, and how he handle it. Have read other stories by author and all have been good Liked the narration, which brought this story to life. By Julie Lancelot

Great Listen

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a great short story. It did not go into a lot of details about the Amish life but just enough to let you know they are Amish. The human emotions of loving then losing and then losing hope were portrayed well. Loved the interactions between the siblings as well as how the parents let them know they were loved and that they should not lose the hope of finding love in their lives. Great story. The narrator was very good. The production not so much. There was a lot of hollow in the background.

The power of positive thinking!

This charming story draws you in right away. It is told from the man's perspective. I found it engaging and just the right amount of conflict tho keep it light enough to listen to on an afternoon of doing art. The man relied on God and found great comfort in his prayer time. Yes, it was pushing positive thinking, but not in and of itself. The kind of positive thinking that means you trust God and know that he cares for every detail of your life. That's a message I needed tho hear today. Thank you Joseph Hersh! =)
