Overview

Quite by accident, Sarah King has fallen in love. But this love is forbidden, and could cost her everything she holds dear.


Tucked into the majesty of Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains is a garden Sarah King has been nurturing for years. She never feels more alive than when she is alone with her thoughts and her Creator among the delicate rows of plants. But then duty calls her away from her beloved garden and into a world she knows little about.


Grant Williams, a handsome young veterinarian, has left the city to open a rural practice among the Amish. Within minutes of meeting shy but feisty Sarah King, he is captivated by her.


As their feelings grow for one another, Sarah insists they can never be together. Marrying Grant would mean being uprooted from her home, her family, and her community. Throughout the cold Pennsylvania winter, with her garden tucked away until spring, Sarah begins crafting a quilt that illustrates her pain. Can anything lasting blossom from a love that's forbidden?

    Why

    Out of 18 reviews, 11 contain plot spoilers. Why do u do that? We do not care that you got the book for free, just stop with the loooooong reviews, dissecting every detail of the book. Just state if u liked it or not. It is nit necessary to ruin a book for others.

    This is a wonderful Amish romance novel by Kelly Long, I also read book #2 in this series "Patch of Heaven". Book 2, Lilly's Wedding Quilt is even better than this one, but both are great reads I couldn't put either one down and finished each in one day each. Hopefully Kelly Long will give us book #3 in this series soon. Ms. Long does put a little more romance in her novels but it's all clean and I enjoyed it. You can't help but love her characters!

    Not realistic...but very easy read.

    Amish books just pull at my heart! Something about the way they take you into a forbidden place for most outsiders.

    I liked this book! The story itself was a little different than most other Amish fiction books, I guess that is why I liked it.

    This to me is an entertaining book and not something as a spiritual challenge. It did not provoke questions or made me fall in love with the Lord anymore than I already do.

    It was a very easy read.

    Blessings to you! You are loved!

    I absolutely loved reading this book. Sarah felt like a real person instead of a character. Would highly recommend reading for girls and women.

    Sarah's Garden

    Sarah's Garden is a novel that describes a young Amish girl's modern-day experiences. Living as an Amish young lady in the Amish Country of Pennsylvania, she is introduced to an English gentlemen who she develops a friendship with.

    I really enojoyed reading this novel, and felt that it was a "quick read." The author did a great job of capturing my attention throughout the novel. I enjoyed being able to picture how an Amish family relates to the modern technology that surrounds them in the outside world.

    The first Amish book I read, I didn't enjoy at all. I struggled to get through the book and decided the Amish genre was not for me. Recently, though, like taste buds for food, my reading tastes have changed. I've read a few Amish books and actually enjoyed them. This book is no exception. Kelly Long has mastered story telling. While there was no action or adventure in the story, it flowed smoothly and was written in a way that had me eagerly turning pages until the very satisfying end.

    I've come to appreciate the simplicity of the Amish faith. Sarah King is a great example of that. I loved her internal struggles that made her seem so human, yet her strong faith in the Lord who loves us all shined through her life, no matter what turmoil she was feeling inside. I think that's what drew Grant to her. Grant Williams is a good man. He is a Christian, whose faith is not so different from the Amish, but his way of life is. He has a great appreciate for the Amish community, instilled in him by his parents, and works hard to become accepted by the community. They form a friendship and their romance is a sweet, sweet story.

    The message of the story, in my opinion, is simple: have faith in the God who created you and knows what is going to become of your life before it happens. As the Bishop reminds Grant, "You're tired because it's normal. Don't give in to despair. Have faith in what Der Herr (the Lord) can do, even if you feel that you have done all you can. That's where He gets His space to work, when it's at the end of what you are."

    Overall, Kelly Long has mastered the art of Amish Fiction. I highly recommend this book for Amish and non-Amish fans alike!

    I was really excited to read this series. Kelly Long has a way of making me want to jump into a book and run away with a fictional character. I have to say—she makes an Amish man sound pretty enticing! I cannot believe how fast I’m reading through this series. I gulped down this book and moved right on to the next which I finished in one day! If you’re looking for Amish romance that is a little more vivid in the romance department—Kelly Long sure has that area down pat. It’s still tasteful but just a little bit sensuous!

    About the Story:
    Sarah's Garden by Kelly Long is the first book in the Patch of Heaven series and takes us into the lives of the King family. Sarah takes comfort in her garden and feels as if she doesn’t really fit in with the women in her community. She isn’t great at quilting fabric—instead she looks at her garden as her quilt. This makes her unique and it catches the interest of the new veterinarian in town. Problem is—he’s not Amish and as much as Sarah wants to deny her feelings, she’s pretty interested in the Doctor.

    At the urging of her family, she tries to put the thoughts of Grant Williams out of her mind but after a stolen kiss here or there it just isn’t possible. When Grant makes the decision to leave and let Sarah go so that she is not shunned from her family and taken from her faith—Sarah’s world comes crashing down around her. It is then that her family tries to set her up with her best childhood friend, Jacob. Jacob has always been in love with Sarah and is determined to step in and be there for her if he can. Thing aren’t so easy for Sarah to accept though and while she seeks peace—Grant is seeking something else entirely. I don’t want to spoil it, in fact I’d like to tease you perhaps and make you wonder…

    Does Grant return and steal Sarah’s heart or has she found peace in the arms of her best friend? I’ll leave it for you to decide (and hopefully to read!) I think you’ll love it! Just the right touches of romance to make you wish you were able to snag the heart of some handsome man out in the middle of Amish country. A delightful read that has been an absolute pleasure and honor to add to my growing collection of Amish fiction.

    It was okay.

    It wasn't a book I could not put down. In fact, it took me almost a week to read because it didn't grab me that much. I did read it to the end however so I'd give it 3 stars I guess.
