Book Description

The Amish Kitchen is the Heart of the Home – and the Ideal Setting for Stories of Love and Hope.
Fall in Paradise, Pennsylvania, always brings a brisk change in the weather. This season also ushers in unexpected visitors, new love, and renewed hope for three women.

Fern has a green thumb for growing healing herbs, but longs for love to bloom in her life. Then the next-door neighbor’s oldest son, Abram, comes running into Fern’s kitchen seeking help for his little sister. The crisis soon leads to a promise of romance—until mistrust threatens to end the growing attraction.

Nearby, Hannah runs her parents’ bed and breakfast, Paradise Inn—but her life feels nothing like Paradise. She longs for a man of integrity to enter her life, but never expected him to knock on the front door looking for a room. Will she be able trust Stephen with her future once she discovers his mysterious past?

When a storm blows a tree onto Eve’s farmhouse, she has little choice but to temporarily move her family into her parents’ home. Outside of cooking together in the kitchen, Eve and her mother can’t agree on anything. But this may be just the recipe for hope in healing old wounds.

Three Amish stories—each celebrating love, family, and faith—all taking place in a tight-knit community where the kitchen truly is the heart of the home.

Find a comfortable chair and a hot cup of tea and curl up with three heartwarming novellas from three wonderful Amish writers!  As in any home, the kitchen is the heart of the home.  Even in my shotgun kitchen, up to ten people have come together to share life, love, and faith.  Although all three stories are written by different authors, the characters are intertwined.  Not only do they live in the same community, but also share a women's prayer group.

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
An Amish Love, also from Beth Wiseman, is another terrific novella with three stories of faith and love.  Co-written with Kelly Long and Kathleen Fuller.

I received a complimentary e-book of An Amish Kitchen from and Thomas Nelson Publisher for my honest review.  No other compensation was received.
