Book Review: An Amish Love

An Amish Love: Healing Hearts/What the Heart Sees/A Marriage of the Heart (Inspirational Amish AnthologyAn Amish Love
BY: Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller & Kelly Long
PUBLISHED BY: Thomas Nelson
PUBLISHED IN: 2010
ISBN: 978-1-59554-875-7
Pages: 391
Reviewed by Billy Burgess

Romance is in the air for the anthology, An Amish Love, by three popular Christian writers, Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller & Kelly Long.

In A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long, Abigail Kauffman tells her father that she was uncomfortable when Joseph Lambert was kissing and touching her, which are all lies. Her father believes her and forces Joseph to marry her that very day. Joseph did not mind that Abigail lied because he was in love with her. Abigail wanted to get married so she could get away from her father, but her plans are ruined when Joseph decides that they will live with her father and help with the farm.

The second story is What the Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller, and is about Ellie Chupp who loses her sight in an accident. Her boyfriend dies shortly after. Christopher Miller, who caused the accident, returns home after five years. When he meets Ellie, sparks fly for both of them.

The last story is Healing Hearts by Beth Wiseman. Naaman Lapp returns home after leaving his wife for several months. When he was away, he missed the birth of his grandchild. All of his grown children have lost respect for him and including his wife Levina.

Over the years, I have read a lot of Amish fiction, so I was eager to read this book. Each story is completely different from the other, especially Healing Hearts that involves an older couple struggling to patch their marriage. I liked A Marriage of the Heart the best out of the book, because the plot of the arranged marriage is setup in the first few pages. Where The Heart Sees is an emotional tale that I also enjoyed reading. If you are an Amish fiction reader, you will love this book.

*I would like to thank Thomas Nelson for sending me a copy to review.
