An Amish Kitchen
The Amish Kitchen is the Heart of the Home – and the Ideal Setting for Stories of Love and Hope.
Fall in Paradise, Pennsylvania always brings a brisk change in the weather. This time also provides unexpected visitors, new love, and renewed hope for three women.
Fern has a green thumb for healing herbs and flowers, but longs for love to bloom in her life. The next-door neighbor’s oldest son Abram comes running into Fern’s kitchen seeking help for his little sister. The crisis soon leads to a promise of romance—until an incident threatens to end their growing attraction.
Nearby, Hannah runs her parents’ bed and breakfast, Paradise Inn—but her life feels nothing like Paradise. She longs for a man of integrity to enter her life, but never expected him to knock on the front door looking for a room. Will she be able trust Stephen with her future once she discovers his mysterious past?
When a storm blows a tree onto Eve’s farmhouse, she has little choice but to temporarily move her family into her parents’ home. Outside of cooking together in the kitchen, Eve and her mother can’t agree on anything. But this may be just the recipe for hope in healing old wounds.
Three Amish stories—each celebrating love, family, and faith—all taking place in a tight-knit community where the kitchen truly is the heart of the home.
These three stories are a wonderful way to spend a few hours taking a break from a busy life. Stories of love and redemption with characters that overlap in small ways through the other stories. Nothing here to give away what happens in the other stories so they can be read in any order.
I enjoyed all three stories although I did feel one of them ended rather abruptly, just when it seemed like it was building to something, it was over. But all in all, they were all enjoyable.
There are recipes in the back of the book as an added bonus.
My Kindle copy of this book was provided by BookSneeze for my honest review.
