An Amish Love: Book Review

About The Book:

Two of today's most popular genres--Romance and Amish fiction--together in one volume.
"Healing Hearts" by Beth Wiseman: Levina Lapp and her husband Naaman are alone for the first time in 30 years. When Naaman left to visit cousins in Ohio, Levina wasn't expecting him to be gone a year. Now that he's back, will they be able to move beyond this estrangement and fall in love again?
"What the Heart Sees" by Kathleen Fuller: A tragic accident rocks a peaceful Amish community, leaving Ellie Chupp blinded and Christopher Bender's future shattered. But they find love and forgiveness in a place they least expect.
"A Marriage of the Heart" by Kelly Long: Rachel Yoder is tired of her Amish lifestyle and her domineering father's ways. When handsome Joseph Lambert comes back from the Englisch, she lies to force a marriage of convenience, providing the perfect means to escape her father's rule. But Rachel never imagined she'd fall in love with Joseph so quickly or irrevocably.
My Review:
I love Amish fiction, so when the opportunity to review An Amish Love, through BookSneeze, came up, I knew I could not pass it up.
All three stories in this volume including fascinating characters and such wonderful storylines. Each are very easy to read and understand, and even young adults would enjoy reading A Marriage of the Heart, What the Heart Sees and Healing Hearts. I love that each novella connected to one another by at least two characters. It will be great to see if the authors will develop some of the story's and characters into future books, as I felt that some of the stories could have continued quite nicely into full sized novels.
A great read that I highly recommend.
BUY IT: You can purchase An Amish Love online, directly from Thomas Nelson It is also available through your favorite local Christian bookseller.
