Reader reviews

  • (3/5)
    The three stories in this book are loosely connected, taking place in the same Amish community, but differing in their tone, as each tale is penned by a different author. Though all have likeable and believable characters, and the required more or less happy conclusion, readers will probably like one story more than the others. One story deals with finding love conveniently next door, another deals with the problems that occur when a father has a stroke, and the last with family relations and an illness. Interesting stories, just not wonderful.

    The Clipston story spoke to me the most - as it would any reader who has had a family member suffer a stroke, and the aftermath. The other stories were good - not saying they weren't - but this one stood out for me.

    Fern and Abram not getting in the love. Abram is taking care of his siblings for a amount of time. He is always turning to her for something. The way they get together is quite different from any other way and I really enjoyed it.Each book or story in the book is different. They found their romance differently form each one. Each story tell a different story. I like this some for that means there are three different ways. Each one is a wonderful read and enjoyment. You can read it if you like and decide for yourself.

    I’ve very much enjoyed these stories. I really like stories written with a lot of thought behind them.

    Three novellas that are centered around the same community. The kitchen is certainly the heart of the Amish home. It's great to follow an Amish community from the eyes of different authors.

    The stories were sweet.
  • (3/5)
    This was three short stories in one book. I love that it was three of my favorite Amish authors:

    Amy Clipston, Kelly Long and Beth Wiseman.

    Each story stood alone with a quick one liner at the very end. There was the Our Daily Bread that all three stories had in common.

    The first story was about Fern who was learning from her grandma about home remedies The neighbor who was watching his siblings while his parents were gone had to come by often with the children and their predicaments

    The second story about Hannah and a stranger who came to stay at her Bed and Breakfast. He quickly was hired by the brother to help out with repairs and such.

    The third story had to do with mending relationships between mother and daughter. Definitely a little humor in this one with George.

    For short stories I do not feel that I missed out on them being longer, they did a great job of making the stories complete with the bonus of recipes in the back.

    Three wonderful Amish stories to draw you in:A Taste of Faith by Kelly LongA Spoonful of Love by Amy ClipstonA Recipe For Hope by Beth WisemanThe first by Kelly Long, is about a girl who is very talented with healing, but very little self esteem. She has been put down by others, and feels she is to ugly and fat to ever have a husband.The second by Amy Cliptson is about forgiveness. A sin is a sin, God forgives us. We just need to ask, but the hardest part is forgiving ourselves. This one is about a man who feels he let his fiancé down, when she was killed in a buggy accident. He comes to Paradise and comes to the Kings B&B. A sweet story of returning to God and finding forgiveness.The third is by Beth WisemanThe last is also a story of forgiveness.
