I have read this book in hard copy twice and have enjoyed it each time. It is a great book for a rainy, get away from it all day. Hope everyone who reads this book is blessed by the way these three authors portray the Amish people and culture.

Three stories that bring the reader into the heart of Amish culture and lifestyle. The stores reveal the Amish people for who they are, real people who deal with real emotions and heart ache but in a ways unique to themselves. Their faith is ever present in their lives and their reliance on their faith and values is shown very clearly in these stories in a very touching way.

"An Amish Gathering" is a collection of three Amish novellas written by three excellent authors of Amish fiction. Each novella focuses on a different Amish family-each of which has an, as yet, unmarried daughter-living in the same Amish community in Paradise, PA. (Yes, there really is a Paradise, PA, and it is heavily populated with Amish families; I have visited many times.) In the first story, "A Change of Heart," Leah Petersheim is so intent on writing stories that she has never developed the requisite skills-i.e., cooking, cleaning, sewing, gardening-expected of every Amish girl. But despite her lack of homemaking skills, Aaron loves her and is determined to make her his wife. In "When Winter Comes," even though five years have passed since the death of her twin sister, Rebecca is still grieving and has not been able to participate in the usual activities of young unmarried Amish women. She has resigned herself to becoming an old maid. But Ben has other ideas, and he waits patiently for her to come to him. In "A Place of His Own," Amanda's friend, Josiah, has returned to Paradise after an absence of 10 years. His parents are both dead, and he has returned to make much needed repairs to their old home and to put it on the market for sale. Although Josiah seems to be carrying a lot of personal baggage, Amanda still loves him and is determined to rebuild their prior friendship into a more meaningful relationship. All three novellas are delightful stories that I found quite enjoyable. I recommend this volume to anyone who enjoys stories of the Amish culture.
