An Amish Year: Four Amish Novellas by Beth Wiseman

Spend a year in Amish country with four sweet romances.
Rooted in Love
Rosemary Lantz is doing her best to run her family’s household. She excels at all her tasks except one: gardening. Saul Petersheim has pursued Rosemary for years, but Rosemary keeps turning him down. What Saul doesn’t know is that she has good reason—something no one can know—especially not him.
A Love for Irma Rose
The year is 1957, and young Irma Rose has a choice to make. Marry the man who loves her? Or go after Jonas, the high-spirited, yet noncommittal man her heart loves?
Patchwork Perfect
Eli Byler has been a widower for two years when he chooses to make a fresh start in Paradise, Pennsylvania. Eli’s children are determined to keep their family the way it is, but they aren’t in Paradise long before the available ladies begin to show an interest in Eli.
As Eli juggles the admiration of two women, he meets Miriam Fisher—the most unconventional Amish woman he’s ever met. She doesn’t fit the mold for what Eli is looking for, but it isn’t long before Eli realizes that Miriam is everything he wants. But with two children constantly trying to sabotage his efforts, will he ever be happy again?
When Christmas Comes Again
Katherine knows the first Christmas without Elias will be hard for her and the children. But when a mysterious Englischer appears with photographs of her late husband, Katherine begins to wonder what other blessings Christmas could have in store.

My Review


Beth Wiseman has a gift of drawing the reader into the story, and we are soon walking in the main character’s shoes and living their lives.
This book has four novellas, and having read most all of Beth’s books, I have read some of these before, but I sure didn’t mind reading them again, and enjoying.
Love a read that I can sit down and finish in one sitting, and with each of these stories it is a possibility and each become page-turners, so you do have to read to the end.
These stories will warm you heart and make you want more, I for one am glad I read these, and can’t wait for the next book to come out.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
