Amy Clipston has brought her fans yet another captivating, fun ride. I truly enjoyed reading this start to her Amish Heirloom series. Her words, her characters, her story line all combine to create a read you won’t be able to put down! I know I couldn’t, as I read it in a day! I loved Veronica and Jason’s characters. Both went through something emotional and tragic, and both had a fear in their heart. Watching them together, feeling like I was right there in the middle of Amish country with them, was so fun. Each page turn brought something to the book and kept me hooked the whole time. I definitely recommend this book by the amazingly talented Amy Clipston. She knows just what her readers want and delivers. This story is filled with God’s grace and love, and characters that will steal your heart. But, be warned! Ms. Clipston’s 5 star worthy work is absolutely addictive and will leave you hungry for more. I can’t wait to read book 2!
I absolutely love Wanda Brunstetter and her work. I was so excited to get the chance to read and review this book, her first in the Amish Cooking Class series. Setting down to read it, I knew I would be in for fun, but just how much, I had no idea! This book is filled with laughter, romance, faith, hope, inspiration and lots of gut cooking! Ms. Brunstetter once again creates a novel filled with heart warming characters, plot lines that keep you hooked and messages woven that will leave you thinking and reflecting long after the book is closed. All the characters within this novel face a different challenge in their lives, but through faith and coming together to cook, Ms. Brunstetter sends us on a ride that leaves us smiling at these characters that have come to try and learn to cook. This is beyond a 5 star book. It’s the first of the series, and I’m already wishing I had book 2, The Blessing. If you are looking for a fast paced, inspirational book about the simple life, look no further than this fabulous book. As a bonus, you’ll get some great recipes from the… Read more »
As an Amish fiction lover, I couldn’t wait to read this anthology! These 4 authors are absolutely amazing and I have been a fan of their work for many years. These four stories are beautifully written and so full of wonderful characters and messages. Each page turn brought more inspiration and by the end of the book, I was sitting there reflecting, thinking about my own life and the simple things we tend to take for granted. I loved all four stories, but Beth Wiseman’s story, A Cup Half Full, really stuck with me. Sarah’s disability and her doubts and fears and having trouble accepting God’s will really is something I’ve dealt with. Beth Wiseman’s attention to Amish simplicity during trying times and weaving God’s understanding grace into the story really was a wonderful experience. This book is worthy of 5 stars and highest recommendations. If you love wonderfully written stories, faith inspired plot lines and authors who love their readers, then this is a book just for you. I can’t wait for another beautifully written anthology by highly talented authors! Reading this book contributed to these challenges:2017 GoodReads Reading Challenge
As a long time fan of both Amish fiction and Ms. Fisher’s, I was excited to jump on this book. I must say that I am quite pleased that I did! Pennsylvania, Amish, and history, this book is one of Ms. Fisher’s finest pieces of work. I loved every minute of this story. This particular book is a little different than most Amish romances that I read, in that it’s more of the Amish settling in America. The characters that fill the pages of this book are wonderful. Anna, Bairn, Felix, Jacob…..all are beautifully chiseled and complex with emotions, faith and struggles. I felt like I had come home and settled into America right alongside these wonderful characters! Ms. Fisher’s ability to create a story, even a second story in a series, and not confuse the reader, is incredible. Her stories, like this one, are filled with God’s unending love, perseverance, romance and laughs. She adds a rollercoaster ride to the mix and keeps the readers hooked long in to the night as they have to turn each page to find out the next part of the story. This 4 star worthy book gets recommendations from me. If you love historical… Read more »
