    I got this book as a "fun read" while I was sick. I was, unfortunately, unable to get a hard copy and had to settle for a kindle addition. Generally, I don't read Kindle books very often (I love the feel of a "real book"), but this was very enjoyable. They weren't the best stories I have ever read, but I enjoyed the simple little tales of Amish life.

    A collection of three stories by well known authors, I think anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful read will enjoy these.

    A Taste of Faith by Kelly Long documents the story of Fern, who loves plants and their healing properties. The story follows the many appearances of Abram and his injured sister. Why does he keep showing up?

    A Spoonful of Love by Amy Clipston tells the story Hannah, who runs Paradise Inn with her parents. She has resigned herself to a life alone, caring for her little home. However, one day a stranger arrives who seems to be a great man. What will her father think?

    A Recipe of Hope by Beth Wiseman centers around Eve and her Mother. As they cook they can't seem to agree on anything. As her mother fails, will Eve find a way to help her?

    An Amish Kitchen was an enjoyable read. It is a compilation of three stories written by Kelly Long, Amy Clipston and Beth Wiseman. All are set in the town of Paradise, PA and have characters in common.

    In the first story, A Taste of Faith, Abram is left with the care of his younger siblings for a month while his parents have been called away. He finds himself attracted to Deborah, known as Fern, who works as a healer in their district. Abram has negative views about marriage and Fern has been hurt by a man before. They must both overcome their fears if they have a chance together.

    The second story, A Spoonful of Love, Hannah runs a bed and breakfast while struggling to feel that she cannot gain her mother's approval. Stephen moves to the area, stays at the bed and breakfast and becomes the handyman. He is running away from some very painful memories and the feeling that he has done too much wrong to be forgiven. Can Hannah help him understand that God's forgiveness is available to all?

    In the third story, A Recipe for Hope, Eve stuggles to connect with a mother she only felt close to when they were cooking. Her mother, Rosemary, struggles with change and an illness. There is more turmoil between Eve's children as they must deal with their actions and learn forgiveness.

    I liked the stories and found them to be a quick and easy read with good messages of forgiveness and the importance of family. I was provided a copy of An Amish Kitchen by Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
