An Amish Heirloom was a really wonderful collection of novellas! Each and every one of the stories captured my attention and kept me eagerly turning pages to find out what happened next.
A Legacy of Love by Amy Clipston – In this sweet tale, I could feel the anguish of both Leon and Susie as they both, separately, came to the realization of what they had lost when they broke up years earlier. Susie also battled with the question of which man did God want her to spend her life with.
The Cedar Chest by Beth Wiseman – This dual timeline story captivated me! I loved the way the author used letters to help in the telling of the story from the past. The characters from the past became as real to me as the characters living in the present.
The Treasured Book by Kathleen Fuller – The main characters in this tale needed to figure out who they really were. Shane was a wealthy Englisher, yet felt God might be leading him toward a different lifestyle. Lucy was confident in her faith, yet was reluctant to step out and lead her own life.
The Midwife’s Dream by Kelly Irvin – I really enjoyed Iris. She had such a sweet heart for others, even when her own heart was hurting and she was wondering what God’s plan for her life was. I enjoyed seeing her travel through this emotional tale toward a life with someone who truly loved her.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
