A Simple Amish Christmas

I read this book on my Kindle.

This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Chapman. I really enjoyed it. I’ve read so many Amish books that they are starting to run together on me. But this one hit a little closer to home with the medical field being involved.

Some things I noticed medically were

1) she got her high school degree and graduated with a RN degree in 3 years. I wanna know what planet that happens on, cuz there is a huge shortage of nurses, and yet waiting lists to get in.

2) she had some maternity training in nursing school and performed perfectly at the delivery in the book. I’ve been a Labor & delivery RN for 4+ years and you can’t learn everything in 1 semester of school. Our nurses go through 12+ weeks of 1:1 training and still don’t know everything. I would be very surprised at a RN letting a student nurse perform such tasks by herself to qualify the student as a pro. I can’t believe an APGAR of 7 was made without a stethoscope or adequate lighting.

Other than the unbelievable stuff, I really liked the story.

4 stars. A great Christmas Holiday read.
