An Amish Kitchen

By Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipson & Kelly Long

About This Book
The Amish Kitchen is the Heart of the Home – and the Ideal Setting for Stories of Love and Hope.
Fall in Paradise, Pennsylvania, always brings a brisk change in the weather. This season also ushers in unexpected visitors, new love, and renewed hope for three women. 
Fern has a green thumb for growing healing herbs, but longs for love to bloom in her life. Then the next-door neighbor’s oldest son, Abram, comes running into Fern’s kitchen seeking help for his little sister. The crisis soon leads to a promise of romance—until mistrust threatens to end the growing attraction.
Nearby, Hannah runs her parents’ bed and breakfast, Paradise Inn—but her life feels nothing like Paradise. She longs for a man of integrity to enter her life, but never expected him to knock on the front door looking for a room. Will she be able trust Stephen with her future once she discovers his mysterious past?
When a storm blows a tree onto Eve’s farmhouse, she has little choice but to temporarily move her family into her parents’ home. Outside of cooking together in the kitchen, Eve and her mother can’t agree on anything. But this may be just the recipe for hope in healing old wounds.
Three Amish stories—each celebrating love, family, and faith—all taking place in a tight-knit community where the kitchen truly is the heart of the home.
Also Includes Reading Group Guide and 45 Old Order Amish Recipes

My Review
I truly loved this book!  Three different Amish stories all centered around something to do with the Amish Kitchen being the heart of the home.  I had previously read books by all three authors (and loved all three for different reason) but to have stories from all three in one location was icing in the cake.  All three novellas are well written, and although they are shorter stores, they don't leave the reader wondering what happens next.  The homeopathic remedies and the recipes in the back of the book add to the appeal to Amish readers. 

I give this book five out of five stars and I hope that the authors have future books with combined stories!

NOTE - I received this book free from ThomasNelson in exchange for an honest review.  I was, in no way, obligated to provide a positive or good review.
