After a year of secrets and scandal, will this Amish community finally find peace under the bright promise of Christmas?

Beth Byler has a secret. Ever since she met Englischer Chris Ellis while helping out at the Yellow Bird Inn, she can't stop thinking about him. She knows a relationship could never go anywhere—Chris was working undercover in Crittenden County as a DEA agent. That meant he faced danger daily and carried a gun, making him completely unsuitable for an Amish woman like herself. But she knew he felt the attraction, too. It was the reason he left so suddenly, promising never to see her again.

Then, three days before Christmas, while Beth is taking care of the inn, Chris returns. This time, he is bleeding and in need of a place to hide. Against her better judgment, Beth takes him in and tends to his wounds. She also promises to keep his presence a secret. Before long, it becomes clear that nothing between them has changed—a relationship is inevitable. But are they ready to sacrifice everything for this chance at love?

Customer Reviews of Peace: A Crittenden County Christmas Novel

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Stunning Read! Blissful sigh! We're back in Crittenden County, Kentucky with familiar characters from The Secrets of Crittenden County series that will forever hold a place in my heart. You don't need to have read the series in order to enjoy this book, but I think you'll appreciate it all the more if you have. Gray is a master storyteller who knows how to wield a complex plot with incredible pacing and a depth of emotion. Told from multiple viewpoints, Peace brings closure to these beloved characters. And I love that each journey doesn't result in a 'perfect' peace. Gray keeps it realistic...and inspiring...by allowing her characters to find peace right where they are amidst their trials. A stunning read!
