An Amish Year: Four Amish Novellas by Beth Wiseman(review by Cathy)

An Amish Year

From Goodreads:

Rooted in Love

Rosemary Lantz is doing her best to run her family’s household. She excels at all her tasks except one: gardening. Saul Petersheim has pursued Rosemary for years, but Rosemary keeps turning him down. What Saul doesn’t know is that she has good reason—something no one can know—especially not him.

A Love for Irma Rose

The year is 1957, and young Irma Rose has a choice to make. Marry the man who loves her? Or go after Jonas, the high-spirited, yet noncommittal man her heart loves?

Patchwork Perfect

Eli Byler has been a widower for two years when he chooses to make a fresh start in Paradise, Pennsylvania. Eli’s children are determined to keep their family the way it is, but they aren’t in Paradise long before the available ladies begin to show an interest in Eli.

As Eli juggles the admiration of two women, he meets Miriam Fisher—the most unconventional Amish woman he’s ever met. She doesn’t fit the mold for what Eli is looking for, but it isn’t long before Eli realizes that Miriam is everything he wants. But with two children constantly trying to sabotage his efforts, will he ever be happy again?

When Christmas Comes Again

Katherine knows the first Christmas without Elias will be hard for her and the children. But when a mysterious Englischer appears with photographs of her late husband, Katherine begins to wonder what other blessings Christmas could have in store.

My review:

This is a collection of four beautifully written Novellas. Each one filled with compelling characters that made me want to keep reading. I thought that I would have a favorite story, but soon discovered that it was impossible to choose just one.

The stories are very touching and realistic which I find lacking in some books I’ve read, especially in Amish fiction. Beth Wiseman is a gifted author and in this collection, she has showcased her talent on each and every page. I have been a fan since The Daughters of the Promise series, and while reading this book, I was reminded again of why I enjoy reading this authors work.

Beth has also included recipes at the end of the book, so don’t forget to check that out!

This book will make a much appreciated gift.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
