An Amish Heirloom, a review
I have come to enjoy these books which contain four novellas by well known authors of Amish fiction. They each have an interesting story with characters facing real life challenges. The authors for these novellas are: Amy Clipston, Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Irvin.
The four stories in this book are:
A Legacy of Love: About an Amish volunteer fire fighter and carpenter who agrees to repair his ex-girlfriend's rocking chairs she has inherited from her grandparents. He realizes he still cares for her even though she is now engaged to another man. She wonders if she is marrying for the wrong reasons.
The Cedar Chest: Emma Fisher has owned her great grandmother's cedar chest for decades when her daughter decides to help her pry it open. Inside there are letters between her great grandparents which tell the story of their surprising history. While laying hidden for years, the letters also help the present day women face their own conflicts.
The Treasured Book: A wealthy young lawyer is considering joining the Amish church and he must decide if it is a true search for God or brought about by his feelings for an Amish woman, who has just come back into his life. She has carried with her the tiny heirloom Bible he had gifted her before their previous parting, does this mean she cares for him more than she lets herself admit?
The Midwife's Dream: A young midwife is called upon to deliver the baby of a teenager when the brother of a friend brings the strangers to her parent's home. The young couple abandon the newborn and in their quest to locate the parents, the midwife and the brother of her friend come to realize their feelings for each other as more than friends.
Each novella is just the right length for a quick read on the beach or during an extended coffee break. Highly recommended for light reading.
An Amish Heirloom was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.
