A Year of Amish Tales

Rosemary loves Saul, but she thinks he can't give her the one thing she wants, so she broke up with him after dating him for only three months.

Irma Rose thinks Jake is the man for her, but Jonas goes out of his way to prove that he's her man.

Eli is searching for a new mate since his wife died two years ago. Miriam thinks she's unworthy of marriage.

Katherine is experiencing her first Christmas without her beloved Elias. Someone has been following her and she's not sure who it is.

Beth Wiseman has written a delightful series of novellas that will hold her readers captive. My favorite is the last one with Katherine and her family. The man who has been following her is her father-in-law who left his family when her husband was quite young. He's been in witness protection, protective custody, and been on the FBI force. He had good reason to leave his family, but he couldn't tell them about it at the time. Mary Carol, Katherine's older daughter, meets her daadi (also known as grandfather) and develops a great friendship with him, but his moments of confusion also confuse her. When all is revealed, there are many reasons for Daadi's behavior and for his presence in the community.

These stories will take the reader through the four seasons of a year and delight the reader in each and every one of them. Each of these tales is worth five stars, two thumbs up, and a year of adventures.

My thanks to Thomas Nelson for allowing me to read and review this book.
