BOOK REVIEW- LOVE CAME DOWN AT CHRISTMAS (A fancy Amish Smicksburg Tale)
Twelve year old Lexi Remington has a Christmas wish: to get out of foster care and be adopted. She gets it into her head that she can take the place of Matthew Yoder, her shunned Amish neighbor, and be part of the huge Yoder clan. A stray white dog, fixing a manger set with her foster dad, and a homeless man all show Lexi an important lesson about the love of God...which prepares her heart for the biggest Christmas surprise ever. 4 STARS
I liked this book, told from Lexi's viewpoint. The book wasn't exactly what I was expecting but I did like that it wasn't. It was charming, honest and emotional. A great family story for the Christmas season and to be honest good for any season that isn't Christmas. You have to remember this is a story told from a twelve year old girl perspective but it was pretty good. There were several other interesting people in the book besides her foster family. The homeless man turned out to have different situation than I was expecting; nice twist.
