Book Review: An Amish Year by Beth Wiseman

From Book Description

“Spend a year in Amish Country with four sweet romances.”

An Amish Year by Beth Wiseman

My comments

Beth Wiseman has done it again with lovely Amish country settings, engaging story lines, and memorable characters. This particular collection of novellas include “Rooted in Love,” “A Love for Irma Rose,” Patchwork Perfect,” and “When Christmas Comes Again.” Each story is endearing and enjoyable to read. Of course, as is often the case with Beth Wiseman books, An Amish Year was hard to put down.

Also, the book includes discussion questions which is great if you are in a book club and recipes. One can never have too many recipes, right? A couple of these sound so good, like the paprika potatoes. 🙂

If you are looking for a book to read after a stressful day or something to whisk you into another world, I highly recommend you take a gander at An Amish Year. I give the book four (4) stars.

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.

31 Days of Awesome Authors & Bloggers

Have you ever heard of the saying, “when you make plans, God laughs?” Well, He must have been laughing at me this week! The day after writing and pre-posting my intention to participate in the 31 Days Writing Challenge, I lost my internet access. :/ There was a problem with my router, and after several tries, and a new router that didn’t work, a technician had to come. Finally, all is fixed, but as you can see, I am late coming into the challenge. Let me tell you, being almost a week without internet access makes me appreciate it all the more!
