About the Book


Book title: Springs of Love
Author: Laura V. Hilton, Rachel J. Good, Thomas Nye
Release date: June 15, 2017
Genre: Amish
The Kissing Bridge
Escaping the past isn’t as easy as it should be…
Anna thought her bad decisions would fade into nothing after she vanished for a few months. Her motives would be clear, her mistakes erased, and she’d be able to rewrite her future the way she wanted. It didn’t work out the way she’d planned. Instead, she discovered her actions have consequences and they had to be paid.
Reuben loved Anna for as long as he could remember, but before he could get serious about courting her, his brother, Mark, won her away. But now she’s back and she beginning to pay the steep price for her mistakes. Reuben tries to help her as much as he can, and the decisions he makes will cost them both everything.
Sold on Love
When Lavina Fisher takes over the household while Mamm’s away, things go from bad to worse. And her younger brother, Stephen, is mostly to blame. Then an accident forces Lavina to face her fears—and her ex-boyfriend. Can she swallow her pride and accept Aaron’s help with the latest disaster?
Cowboys and Amish Girls
Rodeo cowboy, Truman Gunderson, had never met an Amish girl. Amish sisters, Faith, Hope, and Charity had yet to lay eyes on a real, live cowboy. That is until Truman’s galloping horse crosses paths with Charity’s runaway buggy. Truman is not the type to shy away from any challenge, but after he learns something about Faith, Hope, and especially Charity, he realizes that he has met his match.

My Thoughts
I’ve been a long time fan of Laura Hilton’s writing and I was excited to read this collection of stories that included her work. I’ve not read anything by the other two, and was in for a pleasant surprise! From start to finish this book was a fast paced, loving read and I was so glad to be taken to the heart of the Amish and their fun loving, friendly ways. 
These authors blend the perfect amount of faith and love into their stories. Each story is filled with a circumstance that leaves you wondering if the characters will be ok, if the characters will find what their hearts are seeking. Each story is filled with beautiful details of Spring and God’s messages are strong through out each one. 
Each author creates their characters with real-to-life feeling. I felt as though I was right there in the heart of the stories with these heart stealing characters. Life has thrown them hurdles, and in wonderful Amish fashion, they seek God to help them through it all. 
This book is worth 4 stars. It’s beautifully written by 3 amazing authors (including a guy—–not many would think a guy would write a romance book, let alone and Amish romance, but he did and he did amazingly well!) and vividly detailed. The Spring season is among the reader in these stories of faith, hope, love and second chances. I highly recommend this book to all who love a fantastic Amish read. You’ll be transported to the heart of the Amish and held captive til the end of the stories. Well done, ladies and gentleman. Well done!

The story behind The Kissing Bridge
The Snow Globe was released in November 2014 and almost immediately readers fell in love with Reuben and Anna, the grandparents in the story. They were secondary characters, but readers asked me to write their story – I put it on the back-burner, told God if He opens the doors I would, and didn’t really think of it again until I was asked to write a novella for this collection. I talked to the publisher of my Amish novels, they gave me permission, and a very close friend and I went back and reread The Snow Globe to remember all the important details about Reuben and Anna in that book. Then, with much prayer for God’s leading, I dived in. The Kissing Bridge is the result, and it was so much fun to write! If you are new to my writing, and want to know what happened to the main characters of The Kissing Bridge years down the road, then read The Snow Globe. If you have read The Snow Globe and were one of the many who asked for Reuben and Anna’s story, then read The Kissing Bridge.
The setting is actually a real covered bridge that I visited long years ago with my parents when we went on a camping trip and visited all the covered bridges and mills in driving distance of our camp-spot. That was before I cared that my family had come from the Amish and I wondered at all these people dressed as they were and driving horses and buggies!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the story!
