I had the privilege of reading The Amish Miracle The Amish Miracle by three great authors: Beth Wiseman, Ruth Reid, and Mary Ellis. It was terrific. It takes real talent to be able to blend three different stories about three women from the same community and keep the characteristics of each woman similar while writing in your own style. It was wonderful. I found another community I would love to live in. I fell in love with the Bowman’s first and as always, Ms. Ellis drew me in with her strong male characters and servant-hearted women. Ms. Ellis’ writing is truly a gift and I love reading anything she writes. Next, I thoroughly enjoyed the style and story brought by Ruth Reid while continuing the story of Rosa who was first introduced in Hope’s story. Lastly, Ms. Wiseman did a great job concluding the entire book series with her depiction of Becky Byler, again, first introduced in Hope’s story. If you don’t have time to sit and read three full novels, this book is perfect. You get the blessings of a full novel in each shorter story - freeing up some time in your busy schedule without losing any substance.

Just purchased these three novellas; but haven't started reading them. Should they be read in some sort of order so
so that the story flows better from one to another.

A/N: So, I am happy to announce that I have found rine to continue my story! Splittah, thanks so much for reviewing! Luv ya! <p>
The plane ride was so boring, Amelia thought she might've died if it were any longer than it already was. All she did was draw pictures of cats, dogs, and of course, her parents, while the man in the seat next to her drooled on her shoulder. <br>
When she stepped out of the plane and onto Kentucky soil, she got a whiff of something nasty. Manuer. She held her nose as she looked around. <br>
The small plane he had been on for the last few hours had landed on an almost deserted stretch of pavement. To the letft and right of the pavement was farms- as far as the eye could see. <br>
Amelia was just scanning the crowd for a familiar face when a voice called out,"Amelia! Oh, Amelia! I missed you so much!" Her aunt- the owner of the voice- came rushing to greet her. Aunt Penelope wrapped Amelia in a tight hug, then pulled away to look at her. <br>
Aunt Penelope was a short woman, but she was beautiful, with long, dark brown hair and bright blue eyes like her sister. She examined Amelia. "My, how you've grown, dear!" She exlaimed. Amelia stood there, feeling quite uncomfortable with her aunt looking her up and down, her small hand on her shoulders. "Oh, my! I've been so rude! Come now, dear. Let's get you home." She led Amelia to a sleek, baige Lincoln. She opened the door and got in on the driver's side. Amelia got in on the passenger side, fastened her seat belt buckle, and they were off. <p>
A/N: Thanks for reading, NEGU, Stay Gold, and MOR COWBELL! ~ ✧ Hendi ✧

I hesitated to buy this book. Novella's are usually to short amd not worth the.money, but something told me to give it a try. I was not disappointed.
Hope's having had to put her son up for adoption touched my heart deeply. I was an unwed mother at a young age. And like Hope's husband Stephen, my husband welcomed my daughter in to his life. The connection is so great between them, the love so deep, she surprised him one Father's Day with a small tattoo on she shoulder. It says it all. Daddy's Girl.
I hope from this ahort story the author might continue the story of James. Perhaps a love story of James and Becky.
