Not my favorite of books, but okay. ( )
  Julie_Jobe | Oct 12, 2020 |
This is a book with 3 shorter novels within, that are loosely related. I'm not sure why it took me so long to read this book, but once I started I did read it quickly. I'm not a big romance fan, but I greatly enjoyed the light romances within. My favorite by far was "A Marriage of the Heart", I got wrapped up within the characters & wanted to know what happened next to them.

I would have liked to have seen a little bit more negative things happening in the book - everything just seemed a little bit too perfect & happy. Even something that should have been negative, all the characters just happily accepted reality as "God's will" and quickly moved on with their lives. The stories would have been more realistic to me, if we could have felt some pain coming from the characters, even for a short while. ( )

Three short stories. Interesting for the Amish way of life, if a bit rushed for me (I just can't get into short stories, I need way more meat to love a book). Cool feature is recipes at the back. ( )

“Healing Hearts” by Beth Wiseman
This book is a compilation of three novellas all centered around the love lives of a group of intertwined Amish women. The first story, Healing Hearts, takes a look at a couple who’ve been through marriage, raising their children, and a difficult separation when Naaman leaves for an extended visit with his cousins. This story tore at my heart in such a beautiful fashion. Levina’s grief and mistrust in her husband, the uncertainty between them, the way Beth wrote them trying to come back together – all of it was so absolutely beautiful. I have become a huge Beth Wiseman fan and will definitely be keeping her in my spotlight.

“What the Heart Sees” by Kathleen Fuller
Once again, Kathleen rocks me with her sweet and simple romance. Ellie is a strong and capable character, but unsure of her future because of the blindness she feels responsible for. And Christopher is dealing with so much loss – not just his girlfriend, but his entire family and community as he’s left the Amish to live as an English. This was another story that just tugged at me. The lovely way Kathleen writes her family bonds is just about perfect, and I definitely have more of her work on my to be read shelf.

“A Marriage of the Heart” by Kelly Long
Having now read two of these novella compilations, I realize that Kelly takes harder topics and melds them with her Amish characters. This time young Rachel tells a terrible lie which causes a forced marriage to Joseph – someone who’s just come back to the community. I really wanted to smack the girl upside the head multiple times throughout the story, but Joseph was a total doll – sweet, caring, slightly sarcastic. I’m looking at Kelly’s writing a little differently after this novella and would definitely read more of her work.

Set in Paradise, Pennsylvania, "An Amish Love" contains three novels by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller and Kelly Long that focus not only on love but life and sometimes death among the Amish that live there.

"A Marriage of the Heart" by Kelly Long

Abigail Kauffman's mother died when Abigail was young and she never quite learned how to be a proper Amish woman. Yearning to get away from her cold father, she tricks Joseph Lambert into marrying her. Joseph is recently returned to the Amish community after living among the Englisch and is struggling with the demons in his past. Will these two lost souls find true love?

"A Marriage of the Heart" was my least favorite story in the collection. The marriage of convenience plot line seemed an odd one for an Amish novel and I never quite bought the premise that the Bishop, Joseph, or Abigail's father would allow this to happen. I never much liked Abigail's character, and I found it hard to believe that other Amish woman would not have taught her how to cook after her mother died. I think the real problem with the story was the length - this would have been a better book if it was a longer novel in which the characters could have been developed more.

"What the Heart Seeks" by Kathleen Fuller.

After five years Ellie Chupp has learned to adjust to losing her eyesight in a tragic accident. In fact, she is fiercely independent. Christopher Miller has not adjusted so well - his girlfriend died in the accident and he was Shunned shortly after that. Now he is back but not sure he can forgive the person he blames for the accident. Ellie might be able to heal his heart - if he lets her.

I really enjoyed "What the Heart Seeks". Author Kathleen Fuller has created two believable characters who have suffered a great deal because of tragedy and find in each other the ability to finally heal. Ellie is a complex character - strong enough to deal with her blindness, even starting her own business, yet vulnerable, believing that no man would want to be burdened by a blind wife. Christopher's struggles with Caroline's death are very believable, as well as his struggles to forgive those involved in the accident. Despite the seemingly dark plot line, the romance between Ellie and Christopher was very sweet and will warm reader's hearts.

"Healing Hearts" by Beth Wiseman

For reasons even he can't explain, Naaman Lapp left his wife and family and went to live with his cousin for eleven months. Now he is back, but his wife Levina has learned to live without him and niether one is sure where Naaman will fit into her new life. Not only does Naaman have to win back Levina's trust, but that of his children. As he struggles to do so, Naaman begins to realize that his leaving and return may have been part of God's plan.

"Healing Hearts" is a nicely done story. It is not too often that romance novels feature older adults involved in romance, and it was interesting to read as Levina and Naaman fall in love again. Levina's emotions are very believable as she struggles with her feelings for Naaman. Also well done is the way each of his children react to their father's return especially their son Adam. Wiseman does a good job of showing how, even with Naaman's leaving, the Lapps are a close-knit, loving family. There is also a side plot (which I won't spoil here) that adds a bit of mystery (and sadness) to the book. At the end, while I was happy for the Lapp family, I was sorry my visit with them was over.

"An Amish Love" is a nice collection of stories set in the Amish community. ( )
