AN AMISH LOVE
Three of the top authors in Christian literature collaborate on these three Amish-themed novellas. Characters overlap in the stories, which brings unity to the book. These heartwarming tales focus on finding oneself and finding love.
In Long’s “A Marriage of the Heart,“ Abigail Kauffman believes she can gain some independence by marrying Joseph Lambert, who lived with the Englisch for five years. Can Christ give Abigail the strength to be a good wife and accept the truth about her mother’s death? In Fuller’s “What the Heart Sees,“ Sarah Lynne is preparing to marry Isaiah. They are trying to move past an accident that killed their friend, Caroline. Christopher dated Caroline and is unable to forgive Isaiah. Can God soften his heart? In Wiseman’s ”Healing Hearts,” Naaman Lapp returns to his family after an 11-month trip to Ohio to find himself. His wife and children are trying to understand his reasoning. And what possible reason would an Ohio cop have to come looking for Naaman? (THOMAS NELSON, Jan., 400 pp,, $14.99)
