An Amish Harvest: Four Novellas by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Amy Clipston, Vannetta Chapman


Under the Harvest Moon by Beth Wiseman
Naomi Dienner is a recently widowed young mother; she is dealing with the fact that she is not really sad that her abusive husband is gone. She has also recently discovered she is pregnant, and is afraid she might have a miscarriage, so she spends quite a bit of money on a powwow, I interpreted it as witchcraft, but it is in the Amish community.
She has a harvest to get in and her father has hired a friend of his, and English man Brock Mulligan to help. He is a widower and went through so much pain in loosing his spouse; he has no interest in becoming involved again.
This is a very fast read but you are going to love his reaction to the children, and what they say about him.

Love and Buggy Rides, by Amy Clipston
Janie Lantz is innocently eating her lunch when she witnesses an accident with a car hitting one of the buggies that belong to her boss. She then meets the driver of the buggy, an Amish man Jonathan Stoltfuz, who is just visiting the area and staying with his grandparents.
Janie tells her family about the accident, and her farther forbids her to tell anyone about what she saw, he doesn’t want her involved, but when Janie gets to know Jonathan and is interested in him, what will happen.
We also wonder what is going to happen when he leaves.

A Quiet Love is a very sweet story about Dinah Hochstetler, a very shy, quiet, lover of poetry, young woman whose family has sent her to visit her Aunt. Now Dinah loves her Aunt, but she doesn’t like leaving her family, she is a stutter.
When she arrives at her recently married Aunt’s house she meets a handsome, special, young man, Amos Mullett, he is a farmer, and knows he is different, but would love to have a family of his own.
This is a story of when a parent needs to let go, but also be there with a helping hand. When our special children grow up and want to spread their wings, can or are we able to let them go?

Mischief In The Autumn Air by Vanetta Chapman
Martha Beiler has left her home and gone to live with her Aunt, but boy I wondered why she made the move. She is also working with Eli Wittmer, who is not thrilled when the bishop asked him to help and give Martha a job.
When an elderly couple send some of their last possessions to auction, a mystery is created when they pieces go for a lot more money than expected.
Will Amos and Dinah find answers to their questions, and go on with their lives, or will there be a spark that will make then move forward?

Amy Clipston is a native of New Jersey, I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I often joke that my fiction writing “career” began in elementary school as I wrote and shared silly stories with a close friend. However throughout school, I only considered writing a hobby, and I never dreamt of being an author.
In 1991, I graduated from high school, and my parents and I moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia. My father retired, and my mother went to work full-time. I attended Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk, and I graduated with a degree in communications. I met my husband, Joe, during my senior year in college, a few days after my father had a massive stroke. Joe and I clicked instantly, and after a couple of months we started dating. We married four years later.
After graduating from VWC, I took a summer job with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, which turned into an eleven-year career. I worked in the Public Affairs Office for four years and then moved into Planning as a writer/editor.
During that time, I continued writing for fun. It was something I did to escape stress and unwind. I didn’t share the stories with anyone except for a couple of close friends. In fact, I was even afraid to admit to my husband that I wrote.


Kathleen Fuller is the author of several bestselling novels, including A Man of His Word and Treasuring Emma, as well as a middle-grade Amish series, The Mysteries of Middlefield. Website: www.kathleenfuller.com Twitter: @TheKatJam Facebook: Author Kathleen Fuller
