"[A] genuine must read for those who love Amish fiction. Readers will not be able to put this book down until finished, it is just that great and filled with rich characterization.... HERB OF GRACE is a five star recommended book."―AmishReader.blogspot.com on Herb of Grace
"With a complex mix of both younger and older characters and a complex story line, this book is truly a success."―Brodart Books & Library Services on Herb of Grace
"I do declare that Adina has saved the best story for last. I loved this book! Saying that it is a heartfelt story just doesn't seem like it does the book justice."―Destination Amish on The Tempted Soul
"With this quaint, gentle read, Senft's promising series is off to a good start and will make a nice alternative for Jerry S. Eicher readers who want to try a new author."―Library Journal on The Wounded Heart
"This relatable story, which launches Senft's Amish Quilt series, shows that while waiting to see God's plan can be difficult, remembering to put Jesus first, others next and yourself last ("JOY") is necessary."―Romantic Times on The Wounded Heart
"Senft perfectly captures the Amish setting of the novel, causing me both to long for the simplicity and beauty of the Amish way, but also to ponder with puzzlement some of the decisions made by the Ordnung. Amelia is an endearing character, and there were a few laugh-out-loud moments for me that I wasn't even expecting. Although this is the first book I have read by the author, she has been added to my "must read" list. If you are a fan of Amish fiction, then plan on reading The Wounded Heart soon!"―Christian Fiction Addiction on The Wounded Heart
"I absolutely loved The Hidden Life! Nothing is as enjoyable as feeling the same way the characters do throughout the story and believing that you are mixed into the same world....The Hidden Life is full of conflict, romance, and drama! Overall I felt Adina captured the Amish way of life with fine detail. Be prepared to become an even bigger fan of Adina's after you read this book and you will be eagerly anticipating the next installment The Tempted Soul just like me!"
―Destination Amish on The Hidden Life

I usually like to get all books in a series so that I can read them right after the other until the story ends. I would have preferred all of the series at once.
Henry Byler is a potter and just received an important commission from D.W. Firth. Henry has been seeing Ginny Hockstetler who owns the Rose Arbor Inn. Henry’s first commission was making mugs for the inn. The Parker family is staying at the Rose Arbor Inn. Their oldest son, Justin starts following Priscilla Mast. Priscilla has made it clear that she is not interested, but she is having trouble shaking Justin. Their youngest son, Eric is interested in art. After having seen Henry’s sketchbook, he wants to visit Henry. Priscilla takes Eric over to Henry’s and Henry becomes an art teacher.
There are some family members visiting the area and they brought Silas Lapp with them. Corinne Yoder, Sarah’s mother-in-law, tries to do a little matchmaking between Sarah and Silas. Sarah, though, is trying to set up Amanda Yoder (Sarah’s sister-in-law) with Silas. Will Amanda be able to overcome her shyness to talk with Silas?
It is a busy time in the community and it will be interesting to see what will happen with Silas Lapp. I really enjoyed Keys to Heaven. I give Keys to Heaven 5 out of 5. Keys to Heaven is an engaging book that you will not want to put down. I read it straight through and am eagerly anticipating Balm of Gilead.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Sarah explores more about how healing isn't just about tinctures and ointments, while Henry faces issues with his pottery career when he gets a big contract with DW Firth and they want to market him as Amish. In the meantime, a somewhat emotionally messed up family stays at the B&B and one of the boys, Eric, gets interested in making pottery and becomes deeply involved in Henry and Sarah's lives.
A nice look into Amish life and how it intersects with the non-Amish world and people. Both Henry and Sarah are interesting characters and the descriptions of living the plain life are fascinating and inspiring in turn. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Sarah Yoder is exploring her knowledge as an herbalist in finding cures where God's plants and weeds grow, turning them into useful lotions, remedies, teas and tinctures for whatever ails the person she is giving it to. Sarah is coming to terms with her brother and son leaving to join a cattle ranch while saying they were exploring their options. It has lead to a division not only in the community but in the family as well. She is praying that they will return soon and until that time will continue to resume training in helping her own people with natural cures.
Henry Byler has landed one of the biggest contracts he ever hoped for as a small time potter. They want to carry his line of bowls and pottery both in their New York stores and also online as well. The one thing Henry didn't consider was they were marketing this product as Amish made but Henry may have grown up Amish but he had made a decision to not follow in their footsteps nor does he want to join the church. That has put him at odds with some in his community and none more so than Sarah whose property adjoins Henry's.Read more ›
