An Amish Love - BookSneeze Review

An Amish Love is a series of three novellas written by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long. The book is 400 pages in length, only divided into three stories.

The stories' main characters are linked in all of the stories, which is nice. This is a nice book for individuals who love Amish romance.

In the first story, "A Marriage of the Heart," Abigail Kauffman finds herself suddenly married to Joseph Lambert (as a result of a bit of deceit on her part), a man who had recently come back to his Amish faith after spending time in the Englisch world. They struggle to make their marriage into a lasting one as they both battle their own skeletons in the closet.

In "What the Heart Sees," Ellie Chupp is on her own, as a result of a tragic car accident that left her best friend dead and left Ellie blind. When Christopher Miller returns to the Amish community, he's torn with his own anxiety over his fiancee's death in that car accident but finds Ellie intriguing. He admires her drive for independence, and he wants to capture her heart.

In "Healing Hearts," Naaman Lapp has been away from his family for nearly a year, as a result of his desire to be alone. However, Levina, his wife of 31 years, finds it difficult to forgive and forget. When a lawman comes looking for Naaman, his family and the community wonders what exactly Naaman did during the eleven months that he was gone from their community.
