In A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long, Abigail Kauffman tells her father that she was uncomfortable when Joseph Lambert was kissing and touching her, which are all lies. Her father believes her and forces Joseph to marry her that very day. Joseph did not mind that Abigail lied because he was in love with her. Abigail wanted to get married so she could get away from her father, but her plans are ruined when Joseph decides that they will live with her father and help with the farm.
The second story is What the Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller, and is about Ellie Chupp who loses her sight in an accident. Her boyfriend dies shortly after. Christopher Miller, who caused the accident, returns home after five years. When he meets Ellie, sparks fly for both of them.
The last story is Healing Hearts by Beth Wiseman. Naaman Lapp returns home after leaving his wife for several months. When he was away, he missed the birth of his grandchild. All of his grown children have lost respect for him and including his wife Levina.
Over the years, I have read a lot of Amish fiction, so I was eager to read this book. Each story is completely different from the other, especially Healing Hearts that involves an older couple struggling to patch their marriage. I liked A Marriage of the Heart the best out of the book, because the plot of the arranged marriage is setup in the first few pages. Where The Heart Sees is an emotional tale that I also enjoyed reading. If you are an Amish fiction reader, you will love this book.
All three stories in this volume including fascinating characters and such wonderful storylines. Each are very easy to read and understand, and even young adults would enjoy reading A Marriage of the Heart, What the Heart Sees and Healing Hearts. I love that each novella connected to one another by at least two characters. It will be great to see if the authors will develop some of the story's and characters into future books, as I felt that some of the stories could have continued quite nicely into full sized novels.
A great read that I highly recommend.
These three authors, Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long, are three of my favorite writers of Amish novels! I really loved the way each story is a different kind of love story. You have an estranged married couple in one story, and you have a forced wedding in another story. I really don't like to give away plot details so I don't want to give away much more, but they are each very unique Amish stories. They are all very touching and heart-warming.
I like the purity of the Amish culture and the way they completely rely on God's will and trust in His will for everything. Each of these authors are very good at capturing the Amish culture and environment, but also creating characters that you feel you can relate to on some level. I was trying to think if I had a favorite character from these 3 stories, and I think it would probably be Ellie from What The Heart Sees, which is the second story in the book. She has been through so much, and she's learned to be tough, but the problem with that is that it makes it difficult to allow someone else inside.
I very highly recommend this book! The writing is incredible, and the stories are beautiful! Each story is wonderful and unique. The characters are likeable and memorable. I was rooting for each one of them throughout each story. It's an uplifting book that will leave you feeling good! Yes, it's romantic and great for this time of the year, but it's also got some great messages of God's love, forgiveness, healing, and grace. It makes for great entertainment with a fabulous message! If you haven't read any Amish novels before and have been wondering if you might enjoy them, then this would be a great one to start with. If you already like Amish, then I'm sure you already know and love these 3 great authors!
A complimentary copy was provided for an honest review.
What the Heart Sees was quite enjoyable, though the ending was a bit rushed. Still, it held my interest throughout though. In this story, we have an Amish man (Christopher Bender) wanting to reenter the community after a bann but his inability to forgive another member interferes with his desires. Helping him through his journey is blind Amish woman (Ellie Chupp) who believes her blindness makes her undesirable for marriage. I think this work would have been much stronger if so much information weren't withheld from the reader. The information was doled out in a way that left me (as a reader) in the dark but offered no suspense. But like I said, the over all story kept me interested. 3.5 - 4 out of 5 stars.
The final work, Healing Hearts started out wonderful. I absolutely loved the idea of an older couple falling in love again. Though I'm far from their age, I could truly relate to their situation. My biggest issue is the story dragged out too long, and the characters got a little silly stupid toward the end. Partway through the story, a side character (Larry) was introduced with minimum information.Read more ›
