    These three authors worked well to bring this piece of Amish fiction together.

    Lately I have been shying away from novellas. They're usually so short that the authors don't have time to really help you get acquainted with the setting let alone with characters. That's why I was so surprised with An Amish Miracle. This novella was a great book from beginning to end and really flowed between the different authors. I like how they covertly introduced a character in one story that would feature in the next. And it was just enough that I was wondering a bit more about that character. Not only that but there was a bit of follow up of previous characters so that you aren't left wondering.

    I received a copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

    I've read and reviewed a fair amount of Amish fiction over the past couple years, and I liked what I considered to be less formulaic story lines in the three short stories that comprise "An Amish Miracle."

    In the stories, Hope Bowman deals with the guilt she's felt for giving up the son conceived as a result of rape; Rosa Hostetler worries about possibly losing her farm because of back taxes; and Becky Byler struggles with being overweight.

    While two of the three stories ultimately end in happy couples come together (Hope already is married and has several children), I liked that the stories weren't just boy likes girl, girl likes boy, misunderstanding keeps boy and girl apart, a chance meeting brings boy and girl back together, boy and girl live happily ever after.

    So, especially if you're fan of Amish fiction, I'd add these stories to your collection.

    Note: I received a review copy of this book from the publisher, Thomas Nelson.

    3 wonderful personal stories

    Three novella's all taking place in the same community by three different authors, all are among my list of favorite authors. Two of the main characters are good friends, Hope Bowman and Rosa Hostetler and Becky Byler is a younger person in the community. All three stories deal with modern day circumstances and tell how the ladies deal with them. I could associate with one of the stories more than the others but they were all very touching and I really enjoyed this book. These women each show their strength and their strong faith.




    I would recommend this book to those who like stories that deal with personal feelings and trying to overcome those feelings, no matter what the outcome may be. "An Amish Miracale" goes on sale December 3, 2013.




    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
