Anne Marie and Nathaniel have been best friends since they were kids. Now things are evolving . . . in ways everyone else predicted long ago. But when her mother suddenly decides to remarry in another state, Anne Marie's new chapter with Nathaniel looks doomed to end before it begins.

When I'm in need of a quick read, I always head towards short stories or novellas. Amish novellas are one of my favorites. This time, I picked up A Gift for Anne Marie by Kathleen Fuller. It is part of the Amish Second Christmas novella collection. Each are standalone stories, but after reading A Gift for Anne Marie, the rest of the characters are actually in other stories from the author. It'll be interesting to catch up on those.

Back to A Gift for Anne Marie.  I really enjoyed this story for the simple and classic theme of finding love through friendship. It's just so sweet, and Anne Marie and Nathaniel's friendship are ones that you want to cheer for. Like most stories of such scenarios, everyone around this pair knew what sparked between them way before they even had an inkling thought of it. A Gift for Anne Marie is about how they came to realization.  When a secret that leads to life changing news, what will come of their friendship, let alone the budding romantic notions?

"How did he know she needed this? Because he knows me better than anyone."

A Gift for Anne Marie is a fun, sweet and romantic story that will occupy your time in the best way. 



Kathleen Fuller is the author of several bestselling novels, including A Man of His Word and Treasuring Emma, as well as a middle-grade Amish series, the Mysteries of Middlefield
