A difficult marriage has left the Helmuths' widowed great-granddaughter, Beth, finished with wedlock. She's content to live with them and make a life for herself and her toddler son. But once she turns down handsome Tyler Yoder's proposal, it seems only fair to encourage him to find a suitable wife. Trouble is, his gentleness and generous ways are showing her how joyous a real meeting of hearts can be. . .
After a failed courtship, Tyler thought the best he could hope for in a wife was mere companionship. But spirited Beth is the one he longs to protect, and hold close. Earning her trust is the hardest thing he's ever had to do. And soon, both will discover that forgiveness and understanding are gifts that only rekindled faith--along with the happiest of holidays--can bring.

Recently widowed Beth Hostetler brings her toddler son to live with her grandparents until she can strike out on her own in Beckstrand’s formulaic third Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill Amish romance (after Huckleberry Summer). Even though Beth has vowed never to remarry, her grandparents decide she would be perfect for undistinguished local bachelor Tyler Yoder. Tyler finds his way barred not only by Beth’s reluctance, but also by her abusive former in-laws, who would like her to marry her late husband’s brother. The title notwithstanding, Christmas is the focus of only a few scenes instead of being a consistent theme. The Amish cultural details and setting are neither convincing nor entertaining, and the toddler is impressively twee. The clichéd plot doesn’t allow Beckstrand to make any of her characters sympathetic, and Beth’s wishes are repeatedly ignored while Tyler remains a saintly nonentity throughout. (Oct.)
