A Reunion in Pinecraft by Shelley Shepard Gray

When sisters Sharon and Sherilyn Kramer attend a wedding in Shipshewana, one of them returns with a new penpal while the other returns to her job at the bakery. After sending weekly letters back and forth, Sherry and Graham Holland arrange a reunion in Pinecraft. Upon Graham’s arrival, however, he realizes he’s been writing to the wrong sister.

Summer Storms by Amy Clipston

Ariana is counting down the days until her wedding to Jesse. They have been friends longer than Arianna can remember, and that friendship turned into love over the past couple of years. But when Arianna’s brother Tobias, who happens to be Jesse’s best friend, gets them both into trouble, Arianna’s father puts an end to her engagement to Jesse. Some summer storms pass quickly, but Arianna is afraid the damage from this one may be too much to repair.

Lakeside Love by Kathleen Fuller

One Sweet Kiss by Kelly Irvin

Everybody in little Bee County, Texas, can see the obvious: Jacob King and Martha Byler are meant to be together. Everyone, that is, but Martha. Ever since her mother died when Martha was a young girl, she has taken over the role of caregiver to her large family. And reckless Jacob, who has had a little too much fun on his rumspringa, only seems to add to the list of people to manage. But one summer changes everything, and these two may just find a way to meet in the middle and share one sweet kiss.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Amish collections of Novella’s from so many amazing authors. And An Amish Summer is quickly added to that awesome list of books. From Shelley Shepard Gray’s Graham and Sherry’s surprised meeting, to Amy Clipston’s Ariana being devastated about her dad forcing her breakup with Jesse, to Kathleen Fuller’s sisters Esther and Sarah, and Kelly Irvin as she takes readers back to Bee County, Texas and Martha Baylee’s life taking care of her family, you will four sweetly pinned stories that will warm your heart. I love that I could sit and read each story at one time. And I enjoyed the hours of enjoyment and entertainment from reading each of these stories in this book. Each author does an amazing job of creating characters and developing them into a family we as readers can love.

If you enjoy Amish stories, or a good clean read for your enjoyment, I highly recommend An Amish Summer for your summer read. This book was provided by the publisher’s tour team, BookLook Bloggers.

Written in Love by Kathleen Fuller

Book Description

When a postal error creates pen pals of two young Amish people, can they put behind their past mistakes to see the bright future God has written for them?

Jalon Chupp has a past he isn’t proud to claim. He’s worked hard to overcome his youthful mistakes, and he has recommitted himself to his faith. When he receives a sweet note included in a piece of misdirected mail, he can’t help but write back. Soon, the letters he receives from Phoebe are the highlights of his days, and with a hopeful heart, he suggests they meet in person.

Phoebe, too, looks forward to every single one of Jalon’s letters. Living with her overbearing aunt, Phoebe doesn’t have too much to look forward to. But when Jalon suggests they meet, she panics—although she has shared some of the deepest longings of her heart with him, she hasn’t been entirely truthful about her past. But when Jalon shows up at her aunt’s doorstep, everything is revealed. And she can only pray he’ll forgive her for holding back the truth. In order to reach beyond the errors of their pasts, both Phoebe and Jalon must put their faith in something—or Someone—bigger than either of them

MY THOUGHT ON THIS BOOK

Jalon Chupp was delighted to get a note when a piece of his mail went to the wrong person. The young lady who sent the note sounded like a special person so he decided to write her back, resulting in months of letters back and forth. Phoebe was just as delighted to keep getting notes from Jalon. Staying with her very strict aunt with her four year old son was not easy on either of them. And Jakob’s notes gave Phoebe a touch of the outside world.

This is such a sweet story. It’s somewhat different, with the actions Jalon takes with Phoebe, but I enjoyed the different twists and turns the story takes. Both Phoebe and Jalon have colorful pasts that they need to deal with, but with their strong faith, even though the difficult struggles, they will survive. The characters are wonderfully created and as each character developes throughout the story, they seemed to weave their way into my heart. Except for the aunt, that is. She was indeed crazy. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series from Kathleen Fuller. I highly recommend this Amish story!

Book Description

A Cup Half Full by Beth Wiseman—Sarah Lantz always dreamed of the perfect home, the perfect husband, the perfect family. When she married Abram, she knew she was on her way to securing her perfect life. All of that changes in one moment when an accident leaves her unable to walk and confined to a wheelchair, dashing all of her dreams. As Abram starts to transform their home, Sarah begins a transformation in her spirit, and she begins, once again, to see her cup as half full.

Home Sweet Home by Amy Clipston—Down on their luck and desperate after they are evicted from their small apartment, Chace and Mia O’Conner reluctantly take Chace’s Amish boss up on his offer to rent them the daadihaus located on his property. They are certain they will never feel at home in the rustic cabin without any modern conveniences, and they start to blame each other for their seemingly hopeless situation. But with the help of their new Amish friends, Chace and Mia begin to enjoy their cozy cabin and realize that home really is where the heart is.

Building Faith by Kathleen Fuller—Faith Miller knows that carpentry is an unlikely hobby for a young Amish woman, but she loves the work and it keeps the memory of her grandfather alive. So when her cousin asks Faith to build the cabinets in her new home, Faith is only too happy to take on the job, even if it is the most ambitious project she has ever taken on. The only catch is that she has to work with her ex-fiance, Silas. As they work to build Martha’s kitchen, can they put the past behind them and start to build faith in one another again?

A Flicker of Hope by Ruth Reid—Fifteen years ago, Thomas and Noreen King were blissful newlyweds. Young, naive, and in love, life was rosy . . . for a while. Then trials and tribulations rocked their foundation, shattering them emotionally, and soon, their marriage was in shards. All hope for restoring their previously unshakable union seems lost. When fire destroys their home, Thomas and Noreen are left to sift through the rubble. As uncovered items from the remains of the house shake loose memories of the past, Thomas and Noreen begin to draw closer and a flicker of hope—and love—is re-ignited.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

An Amish Home is four Amish Novella’s by four of my favorite authors. Each story is about a different family and the ups and downs that each Amish family go through. I love Amish stories because the Amish lifestyle is so peaceful and comforting. And each of the stories are just that.

A Faith of Her Own by Kathleen Fuller

A Faith of Her Own

by Kathleen Fuller

a faith of her own

Book Description

Jeremiah thought leaving Middlefield was the hardest thing he’d ever do. That was nothing compared to returning home.

When Jeremiah left his Amish community to pursue his dream of becoming a veterinarian, he left more than just his faith behind-he walked away from his family and his childhood friend, Anna Mae. Now that he’s returned to help out his mentor and work in a Yankee veterinarian practice, Jeremiah must face his past-and the people he betrayed.

Anna Mae had finally put the loss of Jeremiah and the broken vow between them behind her. Even though she supported her best friend’s pursuit of his dream, she never let on how his departure left her questioning her own place in the Amish world. With his return, new questions arise, along with feelings she’d never fully acknowledged before.

As their rekindled friendship begins to turn into something more, Jeremiah and Anna Mae must examine their own faith and their relationship with each other and their families. With both of them torn between loyalty to their loved ones and being pulled in different directions, they must decide whether to heed God’s call, even if it means being apart forever.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Jeremiah and Anna May’s life took a tumbling fall when Jeremiah left his Amish family, Anna May and the Amish faith for the English world, and their schools, to become a  veterinarian. But will his return mean that they can pick up where they left off with their relationship? Life is not that easy! And life for these two young people was not without heartaches and many struggles as they strived to find out what God really wanted them to do with their lives.

I have read many of Kathleen Fuller’s books, and have enjoyed them all! Just as I enjoyed this one, and I’m going to get the other books in this series as well! I fell in love with these characters immediately, and I thoroughly enjoyed following their journey, though they did have their moments. I like that Ms. Fuller shows so much detail to the story and each scene that takes place. This is truly a well written book, and a book that anyone who loves a really good Amish story will want to read!
