Review: An Amish Harvest

by Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller, & Vannetta Chapman

An Amish HarvestIf you are a fan of Amish fiction, An Amish Harvest is a collection of novellas that you won’t want to miss! I really enjoyed these stories. Each and every one of these novellas felt like a full story to me. They were shorter than full length novels, obviously, but each story had characters that felt fully developed and situations that did not feel rushed.

I especially enjoyed the romance between the characters in Beth Wiseman’s novella, Under the Harvest Moon. The situation that Naomi finds herself in, and Brock’s caring and kindness made for a beautiful story. The other novella whose romance really touched my heart was Kathleen Fuller’s story, A Quiet Love. This novella was unlike any I’ve read before.  I knew the character, Amos Mullet, from other books by this author. It was an absolute joy to read about his chance for happiness.

Vannetta Chapman’s novella, Mischief in the Autumn Air, was so fun! The author kept me guessing the entire time concerning the mystery that needed solving and I really enjoyed reading about Martha and Eli. Amy Clipston’s novella, Love and Buggy Rides, had the perfect combination of young love and angst! It was a great peek into family relationships and expectations for the young women and men in Amish families. This was a fun collection of stories.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

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

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?
