About this Book:
 
The Amish Kitchen is the Heart of the Home – and the Ideal Setting for Stories of Love and Hope.
Fall in Paradise, Pennsylvania, always brings a brisk change in the weather. This season also ushers in unexpected visitors, new love, and renewed hope for three women.
Fern has a green thumb for growing healing herbs, but longs for love to bloom in her life. Then the next-door neighbor’s oldest son, Abram, comes running into Fern’s kitchen seeking help for his little sister. The crisis soon leads to a promise of romance—until mistrust threatens to end the growing attraction.
Nearby, Hannah runs her parents’ bed and breakfast, Paradise Inn—but her life feels nothing like Paradise. She longs for a man of integrity to enter her life, but never expected him to knock on the front door looking for a room. Will she be able trust Stephen with her future once she discovers his mysterious past?
When a storm blows a tree onto Eve’s farmhouse, she has little choice but to temporarily move her family into her parents’ home. Outside of cooking together in the kitchen, Eve and her mother can’t agree on anything. But this may be just the recipe for hope in healing old wounds.
Three Amish stories—each celebrating love, family, and faith—all taking place in a tight-knit community where the kitchen truly is the heart of the home.
Also Includes Reading Group Guide and 45 Old Order Amish Recipes.
 
My Thoughts on This Book:
 
Three short stories entertwined by three wonderful Christian Fiction authors. Each author writes a novella which includes three total to make up this book. Even though you could read each one individually on its own they blend together nicely. Each author brought together a story of an amish family that lived in the community of Paradise, Pennsylvania. First two stories shows the power of love, and the third shows the power of family. I couldn't put the book down until I read all three. Even when you're done with the book, they've blessed us with yummy Amish recipes and home remedies at the back of the book. Recipes that were shared throughout the stories. I loved how they were novellas but the stories weren't lacking at all. I did find it interesting though that after reading the first story, and head on to the other two, both of those books mention the previous characters from the other novellas but don't share any details about them from the previous stories. In a way that's good if you want to read them in any order but it kind of lacked the flow of the story because it didn't share the endings from the other books. Otherwise that, I loved them. Three great authors, three great stories..
 
I recieved this e-book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was given.
