Christmas at Promise Lodge
by Charlotte Hubbard


GENRE: Inspirational Romance (Amish)



Promise Lodge's first wedding is cause for celebration—but the bishop's narrow-minded wedding sermon doesn't sit well with the Bender sisters, especially widowed Mattie Schwartz. She believes marriage and family aren't the only important gifts God gives--even if she suspects her tender feelings for Preacher Amos Troyer run deeper than simple friendship. Amos hasn't given up hope that stubborn, spirited Mattie will change her mind about taking another husband, but when an accident threatens to change his life forever, he wonders if the Lord has sent him a message. He'll need faith, hope, and charity to find the right path—and a Christmas blessing to convince Mattie to walk it with him.



“Here you are! I’ve been looking for you all morning, Mary Kate.”

Mary Kate’s eyes widened as Roman Schwartz came around the side of the house and stepped up onto the porch. The cats, always wary of strangers, scurried to the far corner. With her mouth so full, all Mary Kate could do was hold up a finger as a plea to wait until she’d chewed and swallowed her unladylike mouthful of food. Why would Roman be here instead of on the eck, eating with the rest of the wedding party? Did she dare hope his lidded glass pan held food from the lodge kitchen?

And where’s my sister? she wondered as she finally managed a smile. “I—I wasn’t expecting you,” she blurted. Feeling suddenly fat, she tried to cover her belly with her plate, knowing that trick wouldn’t work.

Roman’s lopsided smile made him look like a kid, although Mary Kate knew he was twenty-three or twenty-four. “I saw you going into Noah’s house before church, but when I looked for you during the service, I only saw your sister. Are you all right?”

Mary Kate’s cheeks prickled with heat. “Um, Dat sort of told me to go home,” she murmured. “He has a thing about women being seen in public when they’re . . . carrying.”

“Ah. I thought it might be something like that. Not always easy, being the bishop’s kid, I bet.” He glanced down as though he’d just remembered he was holding something. “I brought you some dinner.”



Many moons ago—like, in 1983 while she was still a school librarian—Charlotte Hubbard sold her first story to True Story. This launched her into writing around seventy of those “true confessions” stories over the years, and she’s been a slave to her overactive imagination ever since. Over the course of her writing career, she has sold nearly 50 books—most recently, Amish romance series she’s written as Charlotte Hubbard or Naomi King.

Charlotte lived in Missouri for most of her life, so her Amish stories are set in imaginary Missouri towns. These days she lives in St. Paul, MN with her husband of 40 years and their Border collie, Ramona.
