Christmas at Promise Lodge
Charlotte Hubbard
(Promise Lodge #2)
Published: September 27, 2016 by Kensington Zebra

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.

An Exclusive Excerpt from Christmas at Promise Lodge:

“Mattie, we’ve excused you from kitchen duty today,” Beulah Kuhn insisted as she playfully swished her apron to usher Mattie toward the dining room.

“Jah, I figured you and Preacher Amos would be enjoying the meal—and maybe the whole afternoon—together,” Frances Lehman joined in. “We’ve got plenty of help here, so—”

When Frances’s smile fell, Mattie realized how fierce her facial expression appeared. She inhaled deeply, reminding herself that Frances and the Kuhn sisters had graciously agreed to oversee the final preparations of the meal rather than attend the wedding, so they weren’t yet aware of Bishop Floyd’s decrees.

“You’d better put me to work washing dishes or filling plates or something,” Mattie murmured as a movement at the doorway caught her attention. Rosetta and Christine were entering the kitchen with the same idea, it appeared—wearing expressions that suggested they’d tasted lemon pie made without any sugar. “Busy hands might be happy hands,” Mattie continued, “but—”

“My hands feel like wringing somebody’s neck,” Rosetta muttered. She grabbed a flour sack towel and began drying the big metal pots Ruby had scrubbed.

“And just who am I supposed to hitch up with in the next few weeks?” Christine demanded in a low voice. “If that wasn’t the most preposterous, inappropriate—”

Mattie slung her arm around her sister before her rant went any further. “Keep in mind that our friends here have been cooking, so they don’t know about Bishop Floyd’s sermon. Frances shouldn’t bear the brunt of our hissy fit, because she’s not responsible for what comes out of her husband’s mouth.”

About the Author:

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.
