Book Description

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

“Fans of Amish fiction will find triple the enjoyment here thanks to this gathering of novellas in one book.” —Publishers Weekly for An Amish Wedding



Editorial Reviews

Review

"Heather Henderson’s performance conveys warmth and tenderness in three stories about family, faith, and forgiveness. Through variations in tone and pacing, Henderson injects a wide range of vocal qualities into the diverse characters. Young, innocent Fern struggles to focus on her job of healing people rather than her nervous attraction to the  testy, strong-willed Abram. Independent Hannah helps a quiet stranger stop running from his past and the guilt that haunts him. And Eve stays with her parents, watches the development of her mother’s debilitating illness, and discovers why their relationship is so strained. Henderson’s steady, unhurried performance smoothly interweaves the Amish language with English and conveys the traditions and wisdom of this tight-knit community."

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Amish fiction October 2, 2014
Format:Paperback
This makes a nice addition to my bookshelf. Not my favorite type of book, but it was sweet enough. The book features 3 stories (each written by a different author). Here are some quick thoughts on each story.

"A Taste of Faith" by Kelly Long
The story of Fern Zook, a young woman who lives with her grandmother, who teaches her about medicinal, herbal remedies. It is a charming enough story of the romance that buds between Fern and one of the young men in her Amish community.

"A Spoonful of Love" by Amy Clipston
My favorite selection of the 3 in this book. It's about Hannah King, a woman who is not searching for love, but finds it anyway, right on the doorstep of her bed-and-breakfast inn.

"A Recipe for Hope" by Beth Wiseman
A story of forgiveness, between a middle-aged woman and her mother, learning to love each other again. And that is in the midst of raising three teenage boys, all in 'rumschpringe' at once.

Overall, these were sweet stories for adult readers to enjoy. I love how the characters were tied together between the 3 stories (the women featured in each story know each other because they all live in the same community). For anyone who really enjoys Amish fiction, this book would probably be a treat.

2.0 out of 5 stars Superficial and simple, but sweet April 9, 2013
Format:Paperback
I have read books by Beth Wiseman in the past, and I enjoy her writing. I guess it was my high expectations of her writing that made Amish Kitchen such a disappointment to me.

I have promised my readers to me honest with my reviews, and it is for that reason that this review is painful to write.

I struggled with this book. I struggled to finish it. I found the stories superficial and simple. It seemed like high school writing, instead of writing done by published authors. It seemed that in effort to make a collection of short stories, they sacrificed quality for quantity.

I thought the stories were sweet, but oh so predictable.

Granted, this book does give you more insight into the Amish culture, so that is a perk.

I encourage you to read this and prove me wrong. Judging from the reviews of this book on other websites, I am one of the few that was disappointed in this book.

2 stars

*I received this book for free in exchange for my hones review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable quick-read December 11, 2012
Format:Paperback
An Amish Kitchen is a conglomeration of three Amish novellas that honor love, faith and healing. Each story flows seamlessly, has interesting characters, and leaves the reader with a spirit of hope.

A Taste of Grace, by Kelly Long: This ia a lighthearted read about Fern Zook and Abram Fisher. They are captivated by each other and thrown into a variety of circumstances that make them wonder if they weren't meant to be together.

A Spoonful of Love, by Amy Clipston: Anna King, manager of a bed and breakfast, meets Stephen Esh, an Amish man running away from his past, when he boards at her inn. They learn they may have what the other needs. This is a sweet story of the healing salve of forgiveness.

A Recipe for Hope, by Beth Wiseman: Eve Bender must move home with her husband and children when her home is destroyed. The strained relationship with her mother proves to be quite a quandary, as the women strive to find a way to live together peacefully.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Amish Kitchen December 10, 2012
Format:Paperback
An Amish Kitchen is a collection of three different stories which take place within the Amish community of Paradise, Pennsylvania along with a reading group guide, a short collection of home remedies, and Amish recipes.

The first two tales are romantic in nature as two new couples find each other within this tight-knit community. The third story teaches tolerance and acceptance among family members - whom we have a tendency to be most critical of - in the name of love, of course.

As to be expected with Amish stories there is a lot of God talk and religious rhetoric, but I have to admire the simple nature of Amish life. Unafraid of hard work, a community that comes together in times of need, and their reluctance to depends on technological gadgets for fear they may become distractions to their faith and beliefs. I feel both awe and respect to a group of people who willingly live without electricity and modern-day conveniences in this day and age.

If I had to be critical of anything it would be the order of the stories as it really felt as though the second story came before the first story chronologically.
