Review – An Amish Family: An Amish Novella Collection by Kathleen Fuller

An Amish FamilyAn Amish Family is a very nice collection of four novellas by Kathleen Fuller. I enjoyed all four stories. These were sweet, easy stories to sit down and enjoy, yet I felt engaged in every one of the tales.

In Building Trust, I really felt for Grace and Joel. Their hearts were broken when Grace’s father refused to allow them to get married. I loved watching how things progressed through this tension filled story!

In A Heart Full of Love, I had so much fun getting to read about Ellie and Chris starting a family. They are the main characters in a previous novella, so it was really nice to visit them again. Poor Ellie had a lot of extra stress in her life when her mother came to “help out”! You can easily read this novella without having ever met Ellie and Chris before.

Surprised by Love was a sweet story. I enjoyed seeing how these two main characters really did get surprised by the feelings that grew between them. It was a story of love happening when you least expect it.

I had already read A Gift for Anne Marie in a different novella collection. I did enjoy reading it again and watching as two friends suddenly realized that their feelings were much more than just friendship.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
