Review: An Amish Winter by Vannetta Chapman and Carrie Lighte

What a wonderful pair of novellas in this Amish collection! Both of these stories were so enjoyable to read. Even though the stories are shorter than full-length novels, the character development in both novellas was very impressive.

In Stranded in the Snow by Vannetta Chapman, Faith’s love for her baby was clear. She had a lot of decisions to make and had come from a very difficult situation. She was not quick to trust Elijah because of all she had been through. Elijah also had to adjust his expectations regarding the role of an Amish woman and accept Faith for who she was.

In Caring for the Amish Baby by Carrie Lighte, it was so sweet to see how Leah and Jonathan worked together to take care of not only Jonathan’s niece, but also his brother and sister-in-law. There were some misunderstandings and hurt feelings a couple of times between Leah and Jonathan. These events felt so real and plausible that it made me really empathize with both of them. I was amazed at how much I connected with both of these characters in this novella.
