Review: What the Heart Sees - Kathleen Fuller




It seems as though certain books and their genres make waves, as at the moment I am seeing an influx of Amish Romances springing up over the place and today's book is a collection of them by Kathleen Fuller and is a review copy found on www.netgalley.com.

What the Heart Sees: A Collection of Amish Romances

Review: What the Heart Sees: A Collection of Amish Romances - Kathleen Fuller - March 2011

When coming across Amish Christian Fiction, Im always in two minds about it , the reason being some of the authors I enjoy and their writing flows with a perfect stroke and others I just no matter how hard I try , I can't find myself getting into it. What the Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller was a bit of both . Unlike the majority of Amish novels , Kathleen's contained more than the average novel worth of Amish language and though it had a dictionary at the beginning of the book, it was a hassle to keep flicking back and forth. Though, in saying that on a positive note as the stories were short stories and more like novellas rather than full length novels, I didn't mind the overuse of Amish language as much as I might have had it been a full novel.
. "A Miracle for Miriam" from" An Amish Christmas" Miriam fell for Seth, but he broke her heart. Years later, after he's nearly killed in an accident, Miriam sees him at a Christmas party and notices something is different about him-not just how he looks, but how he acts. When Seth pursues her, she must decide whether to guard her heart or accept his love. "A Place of His Own" from "An Amish Gathering" When Josiah left Paradise the first time, he didn't even say good-bye. Now he's back, ten years later, and he's changed. Why is he so distant and bitter? Where is the boy who used to be Amanda's best friend? Amanda is learning that there are things even a capable Amish girl can't fix. But can she stand there and watch him walk away...again? "What the Heart Sees" from "An Amish Love" A tragic accident rocks a peaceful Amish community, leaving Ellie Chupp blinded and Christopher Bender's future shattered. But they find love and forgiveness in a place they least expect?
