Amish Celebrations, a review

I think you know that I enjoy these books that have four novellas in them.  They are quick, light reads and you never have to worry about unexpected "smut".  Beth Wiseman is one of my favorite authors in this genre of fiction.

The four novellas are:
The Gift of Sisters
Hannah and Rachel are twins who will soon be celebrating their rumschpringe. Like so many sisters, they are different in personalities with one being very outgoing and the other sister is shy.  They both fall for a new guy in town, which makes for conflict between the sisters.  Who will he choose?  That is part of the story.

A New Beginning
Rebecca and Noah are betrothed and about to be baptized but when Noah does something during his rumschpringe, Rebecca reconsiders his proposal.  This is a story of Rebecca forgiving him and Noah forgiving himself.

A Perfect Plan (formerly published in An Amish Wedding)
Priscilla and Chester plan to marry but one disaster follows another as he builds the house they will live in after the wedding.  Amidst challenges, they must decide if this is truly the path God has for them.

A Christmas Miracle
Mary is a young mother with five children who is overwhelmed with the frustrations that often come as the mother of young children.  Her miracle comes in the form of an old man in a red suit (not to mention an elf at his side) who convinces her that it is a good thing to ask for help.

If you enjoy lighthearted reading to take you away from the bad news all around us these days, you will enjoy Beth Wiseman's Amish Celebrations

Amish Celebrations was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.

I like books with several stories that I can put down when I finish one story. A 300 page book is hard to put down when I get caught up in the story (and I do need to get to bed at night). Like your reviews. Sharon D.

I love reading novels about the Amish. I love Beverly Lewis and Wanda Brustetter are two of my favorite authors. I will have to read Amish Celebrations, it sounds wonderful.
