From Publishers Weekly
Three novellas in one book provide variations on the Amish theme. Each stands alone, though characters overlap as three couples search for love. In "A Marriage of the Heart," Abigail Kauffman forces her marriage to Joseph Lambert, a man struggling with his past in the Englisch world. They forge a tentative relationship, but both their pasts may be their undoing. Ellie Chupp, a blind Amish woman in "What the Heart Sees," must face Christopher Miller when he returns to his Amish roots seeking forgiveness for his part in causing Ellie's blindness. But can he forgive himself? One strong woman leads the way. Finally, in "Healing Hearts," Naaman Lapp returns home after a year away to find Levina, his wife of 31 years, distrustful and confused. Naaman woos her as he struggles to make amends with his children. But a mysterious man comes looking for Naaman and rumors begin to fly. Occasional dragging plot lines won't damage the book's selling power. (Dec.)

First : The Healing Hearts by Beth Wiseman is a story of finding your way back together. Naaman Lapp left home a year ago to go to his cousins in Ohio, now he is home and hie wife Levina is trying to come to terms with him leaving and where they stand now, they were empty nesters and lost what they had when they wer first married. Can they find there way back to each other? Can Levina forgive Naaman for leaving her and their family? Can he forgive himself, when he still does not even know for sure why he left in the first place. This was a very good short story of understanding, forgiveness and coming to terms with the life you had as parents and the life you will have as married partners who spent yerars together but not necessarily together since you spent those years raising your children. I very much enjoyed this story and believe you will as well. Beth Wiseman did a wonderful job.
The second story is A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long
Abigail Kauffman wants nothing more than to escape the life she has with her father, since her mother died it's been just her and her father and she longs for a better life.
Joseph Lambert is seeking a new life back into the community, after Abigail and Joseph suddenly find themself married to each other they slowly start to understand what true love and long understanding of that love and life means.
This story is a look at what a parent will do to protect a child and then what that child will do to cherish a parent once the truth is revealed. It's a story of coming to understand oneself through the mistakes you have made and growing in the process. You don't want to miss reading this Kelly Long story, it's very good.
The third story is: What the Heart sees by Kathleen Fuller:
Ellie Chupp struggles with nightmares still after five years after the terrible accident that took the life of her best friend in the car accident and left her blind, will she ever be able to have a good night sleep. She has long since forgave her cousin Isaiah who was driving and her life is wonderful. She has her own little business selling jam and jellies, she gets around just fine with her cane, and she even manages to cook and run the house with little help, so why now after five years have the nightmares returned?
Christopher Miller has come home after five years, not sure why other than his mothers letters pleaded with him, truth be told he missed his family but now that he is back the memories flood him and so does his anger for his once friend Isaiah who killed is beloved Caroline. And when he finds out his sister is to marry Isaish it's almost to much.
Can he come to terms with the accident that changed everything, can Ellie help Chirs or will Chris help Ellie?
I sure you will be as intreging with this story as I was, it forces you to step out of your comfort zone and look at what will happen if suddenly your life changes and you have to rely on your strength to carry you through. Also it looks at fogiving others for what you can't change. Realizing that even though you are hurting others in that situation are as well and we must look at the whole situation as a whole. This was a wonderful story and you don't want to miss reading this Kathleen Fuller Story.
