    An Amish Christmas
    This book certainly passed my "50-page-test", in fact it passed my 5-page-test! I was wondering WHEN I would find the time to finish "An Amish Christmas", and decided just to begin reading this morning and now I'm done with it. The story has a family in crisis who finds itself removed from all of today's technology, and yet finds old fashioned gifts of everlasting quality. Meg and James Hobart finally learn to share the goodness of life with the members of their immediate family after seeing their dreams and goals go up in smoke. A great read for those who enjoy inspiring holiday tales. It will make you want to head into the kitchen and bake!

    To be, rather than to seem
    The Hobarts are a modern well to do family with all of the latest electronics living in Charlotte NC. Meg Hobart, the mom, questions some of the excesses of her kids lives but is totally enmeshed in their upwardly mobile lives. Due to unfortunate circumstances, their lives are changed dramatically. After spending some time with an Amish family and seeing what life is like without all their modern excesses, the entire family learns a lot of lessons. I thought that the book was very interesting and was a good reminder of what is really important in everyone's lives. Meg learns that it is more important to 'be' real rather than to seem to be something that she is not. I would highly recommend this book!
