Product Description

Healing Hearts by Beth Wiseman: Levina Lapp and her husband Naaman are alone for the first time in 30 years. When Naaman left to visit cousins in Ohio, Levina wasn't expecting him to be gone a year. Now that he's back, will they be able to move beyond this estrangement and fall in love again?
What the Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller: 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.
A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long: Rachel Yoder is tired of her Amish lifestyle and her domineering father's ways. When handsome Joseph Lambert comes back from the Englisch, she lies to force a marriage of convenience, providing the perfect means to escape her father's rule. But Rachel never imagined she'd fall in love with Joseph so quickly or irrevocably.


I absolutely adored this book. The first two stories were so tender, so full of love and romance that they blew me away.
This is what real love in marriage is, this is now it should be.
The characters were realistic and flawed, and that's why the stories touched me so deeply. They let God heal them and teach them how to love.
These stories made me laugh and almost cry and they totally gave me goosebumps.

I am going to order this book and I can't wait until I can read it again.

There were only two things that made me give this book a four instead of a five, which it totally deserves.
First, I gretly disagree with the Amish theology, which is antibiblical.
And, secondly, the third story (by Beth Wiseman) was a but ridiculous, presenting a sin as the will of God.
However, the first two stories were absolute gems and I completely fell in love with the characters and with the authors as well.

I read this book via NetGalley.

Rating: 4/5
