Review: An Amish Love -Beth Wiseman , Kathleen Fuller and Kelly Long
Are you one for romance ? For tales of young love ? Wanting an Amish novel to warm your heart ?
Review: An Amish Love Anthology - Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller and Kelly Long - December 2010
When reading any books about the Amish community , a few things always seem to pop up as themes - forced marriages, unrequited love , and woman who think they are going to die old spinsters but end up eventually with the ones they love. Alot of the Amish Books, go along the theme of romance, courtship - a tradition and mannerism that over the years in the worldly sense and many western societies has gone unheard of nowadays. Being a born romantic at heart, I love to cling to their way of life though Im not sure exactly how I would have fit in with having no laptops, ipods and all those modern technology gadgets like ebook readers that many of rely on in our everyday life. The three stories in An Amish Loveincluded are all aspects of a different kind of love story. You have an estranged married couple in one story, and you have a forced wedding in another story. I had previously read books by Beth Wiseman and Kathleen Fuller but had not yet experienced any of Kelly Long's writings and I have to admit though I loved all the stories in this wonderful trio , my favourite would have to be A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long. As reading what Abigail did to try and escape her father and then unfortunately have it backfire on her was in two ways I could relate to what she was going through but also it added a bit of humour to the story with her impulsive plan backfiring on her , so here she now has ended up with a marriage and even worst still living in her father's home.
An Amish Love is the perfect read for all those romantics at heart and if you are a fan of the Amish Fiction collection, then this will be one book that if you haven't read already, you should be moving it to the top of your TBR Pile.
