Four incredibly talented authors write some significant Amish fiction in this collection of novellas. It is a Five Star, Two Thumbs Up, and a Christmas Cookie type olio.
Rather than take on each novella, I want to review my favorite one. The Christmas Cat by Amy Clipston is not a typical romantic novel, but more of the reminiscences of an elderly lady who is sharing with four young people who came to bring her some cookies. She tells the story of falling in love with her husband, and how their love grew through the years, even though their one wish was never fulfilled. She tells of the struggles of their early years and trying to open a hardware store and not lose their house for lack of money.
These stories have a warmth to them that is lacking in a lot of stories that are published today. These four ladies who put these novellas together do their due diligence in research and in creating believable stories for those who love Amish fiction.
My thanks to Thomas Nelson for allowing me to read and review this book.
