An Amish Harvest: Four Novellas by Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller & Vanetta Chapman ( review by Cathy)

An Amish Harvest

About the book:

Faith, hope, and love remain forever in season in this collection of four richly absorbing novellas set amidst the wonder of An Amish autumn.

My review:

When four of your favorite authors write four wonderful stories in one wonderful book, you know that you are in for a real treat!  Each author lends her unique voice and the novellas blend harmoniously in this collection focusing on family, faith and love. I genuinely liked each one of the stories which is rare, at least it is for me.

Under the Harvest Moon, by Beth Wiseman When Naomi Dienner is suddenly widowed, she never expects to find love again . . . until she meets Brock Mulligan, an English family friend hired at harvest time. As a sinister presence begins to threaten Naomi, Brock seeks to prove himself trustworthy while struggling with growing feelings for Naomi and her children. Will God open Naomi’s heart—and give Brock his own second chance at love?

Love and Buggy Rides, by Amy Clipston Janie Lantz is a cashier at Lancaster Souvenirs and Buggy Rides, where Jonathan Stoltfuz is a buggy driver. A frightening accident brings Janie and Jonathan together in a blossoming friendship, yet daunting obstacles stand between them and something deeper. Can love kindle into flames that burn away fear and regret—and lead them to a life together?

Mischief in the Autumn Air, by Vannetta Chapman

When items start going above market value at his auction house, Eli Wittmer is first thrilled, and then puzzled. But when the house is broken into, Eli and his new bookkeeper, Martha Beiler track down a trail of clues. Will they solve the mystery before the fall festival ends—and discover an unexpected new love?

A Quiet Love, by Kathleen Fuller

Dinah Hochstetler, quiet and bookish, longs for marriage but hides in her shyness. Amos Mullett, a simple farmer, knows he’s different but aches for a loving wife. As Dinah and Amos navigate a budding romance, will the power of love—and the blessing of God—be enough to overcome their doubters?

I highly recommend An Amish Harvest. Beth, Amy, Vanetta and Kathleen have all done a remarkable job on their character development and engaged this reader from the beginning to the end. This is a book that I will read again.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for my honest opinion which I have given.
