Awesome Authors: Beth Wiseman

*This is part of the Write 31 Days writing challenge

Beth Wiseman is one of the first Amish fiction writers that I’ve read and it was her books that sparked my love for _140_245_Book.1027.coverAmish fiction. She is a prolific writer and I have had the privilege of reading and reviewing several of them.

Those books are:

An Amish Cradle

Am Amish Kitchen

An Amish Second Christmas

An Amish Miracle

The House That Love Built (Not an Amish story)

The Wonder of Your Love

Her Brother’s Keeper

Beth Wiseman’s writing is light, engaging and inspiring. I love that she sometimes tackles subjects that others avoid such as Down’s syndrome. If you enjoy love-inspired Amish fiction, I know that you will enjoy her books. If you have never read Amish fiction novels, her stories would be a good introduction into this genre.

I have to tell on myself here: I thought I had pre-written this post and had it all set to go. Well, I couldn’t sleep last night so I wound up sleeping in this morning. Then, when I went to make sure this post went live, i realized that I hadn’t written it at all! Opps! Oh well, at least I didn’t miss doing todays challenge altogether. LOL!

The Gift of Love by Amy Clipston

I’m glad, too, because today I’m sharing another one of my favorite Amish fiction novelists, Amy Clipston. Most of the stories I’ve read from her come from collection novellas such as An Amish Cradle. In fact, I am in the process of reading a collection of three novellas right now that feature one of her stories. However, I have also read her full-length novel, A Hopeful Heart. She has also written an autobiography, The Gift of Love, where she chronicles the hardships of her husband’s kidney disease and his eventual transplant. My husband had a liver transplant years ago so her story really hit home.

Her books contain uplifting stories with fun and relatable characters that I sometimes wish were real. 🙂 She has a lovely writing style that keeps me turning the pages and I am always happy and satisfied with the endings. By this I mean, when the stories are over – although I wish the story never ended – they have full closure and feel complete. I am not left hanging or feel like anything was missing. I’m not sure if I am explaining this right or not. I think you will need to read a few of her books to get what I am saying!

In any case, I really encourage you to check out some of her books. I think you will really enjoy them.
