This was a fantastic set of novellas and I would give the book a 5 out of 5 stars. Individually I would do the same. The first story out of the novellas is a bittersweet love story. If you’ve ever questioned the “what ifs” this book really hits home with the message of God’s wisdom and that he always has a purpose. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose. ” Never doubt it and never lose faith that He knows what He is doing.
Story 2 in this book was about a young girl named Leah. She isn’t good at cooking, cleaning or doing the normal things that will make a man a good amish fraa yet she has captured the heart of a young man named Aaron. This story was about love and acceptance, loving each other for who we are and why God made us different in the first place. It also has a wonderful lesson to parents on loving and supporting our children’s dreams.
Last but not least was the story that touched my heart the most. This little novella really opened my eyes to problems in my own marriage that I’ve overlooked. I loved this little lesson in remembering that we aren’t just parents but we are also wives. Remembering the sweet little notes we used to leave to one another and just connecting and communicating, not as mom and dad but as a couple. A must read for mothers.
Beth Wiseman captured the very soul of her characters in this collection and I’m proud to have gotten to review this book.
