Fern is the local herbalist in her Amish community. Her world and heart are turned upside down when her neighbor, declared bachelor, Abram comes to her house for help for his siblings. In only a few weeks her life changes like she never expected.
Hannah is running her parents bed and breakfast when a stranger asks for a room. Stephen is running away from his community to Paradise for a new start on life. Fate sends him to a small bed and breakfast in Paradise, PA. As these two lives collide they find comfort and friendship together and maybe something more.
Eve is forced to move her family into her parents' house after theirs in damaged during a storm. Eve is forced to be in close quarters with her mother, whom she's never gotten along with. Her mother is judgmental on herself and how they raise her children. She struggles with how to connect to her mother and survive the stay.
These three stories are great reminders that God is always in control and has a divine plan. All we need to do is trust and obey. There will be many hardships but many moments of Joy and it's all for the glory of God.
Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free from [...] to read and review. The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
The stories are about various things--hope,forgiveness and confidence through the Lord being three of the main themes. I personally liked the final story in the book, by Beth Wiseman the most. There was just something about the way unexpected things happened in that story that made it feel unputdownable.
If you are familiar with Amish fiction, this book will give you exactly what you came for. There is nothing you wouldn't want your child to read over your shoulder, and the stories end on a happy note. I felt the stories were a bit squished, but I suppose that is to be expected when they are novellas.
This would be a perfect vacation or lazy afternoon book that will more than likely put a smile on your face.
As a bonus there are quite a few really good recipes included after the stories. My favorite one, being the recipe for hope.
Overall, I liked this a lot and would recommend it to other fans of the genre.
This review is based on an ARC from the publisher, provided by Netgalley.
"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.
