about

A Cup Half Full by Beth Wiseman—Sarah Lantz always dreamed of the perfect home, the perfect husband, the perfect family. When she married Abram, she knew she was on her way to securing her perfect life. But all of that changes in one moment when an accident leaves her unable to walk and confined to a wheelchair, dashing all of her dreams. As Abram starts to transform their home, Sarah begins a transformation in her spirit, and she begins, once again, to see her cup as half full.

Home Sweet Home by Amy Clipston—Down on their luck and desperate after they are evicted from their small apartment, Chace and Mia O’Conner reluctantly take Chace’s Amish boss up on his offer to rent them the daadihaus located on his property. They are certain they will never feel at home in the rustic cabin without any modern conveniences, and they start to blame each other for their seemingly hopeless situation. But with the help of their new Amish friends, Chace and Mia begin to enjoy their cozy cabin and realize that home really is where the heart is.

A Flicker of Hope by Ruth Reid—Fifteen years ago, Thomas and Noreen King were blissful newlyweds. Young, naive, and in love, life was rosy . . . for a while. Then trials and tribulations rocked their foundation, shattering them emotionally, and soon, their marriage was in shards. All hope for restoring their previously unshakable union seems lost. When fire destroys their home, Thomas and Noreen are left to sift through the rubble. As uncovered items from the remains of the house shake loose memories of the past, Thomas and Noreen begin to draw closer and a flicker of hope—and love—is reignited.

Building Faith by Kathleen Fuller—Faith Miller knows that carpentry is an unlikely hobby for a young Amish woman, but she loves the work and it keeps the memory of her grandfather alive. So when her cousin asks Faith to build the cabinets in her new home, Faith is only too happy to take on the job, even if it is the most ambitious project she has ever taken on. The only catch is that she has to work with her ex-fiance, Silas. As they work to build Martha’s kitchen, can they put the past behind them and start to build faith in one another again?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learning to Trust Tuesday, February 7, 2017 An Amish Home ~ Four Novellas by Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipston, Ruth Reid & Kathleen Fuller, © 2017 An Amish Home releases today!! Thank you, author Amy Clipston for sending me a copy of An Amish Home. I will be reviewing her novella within, "Home Sweet Home." Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania Driving rain welcomes Chace and Mia O'Conner and their infant daughter, Kaitlyn, to an adventure not soon to be forgotten. Shelter and friendship are before them as they settle into a small cabin, destined to become their own Home Sweet Home. With nowhere else to go, it becomes more than they could have imagined for their family beginnings. Fresh country air beckons them as they are intrigued by their new surroundings. Isaac Allgyer and his wife, Vera, and their children welcome them and greet them beyond what they had ever experienced. Family. Mia has never been extended such courtesies and is uncertain how to negotiate kindness. Blaming her husband for their lack displays an uneasiness of all he is doing to rectify their dilemma of bills occurring unprepared. A young marriage, learning to work together, easing guilt brought on by not knowing what to do or say, may open a door to a solution they will recognize as not only urgent but necessary to extend a hand to each other. Forgiveness, acceptance, a love greater than their own. I really liked this story of growing together and relying on God. No other way would surface than in His love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amish Community As the title of the first story “A Cup Half Full” suggests it is easy, especially under adverse circumstances, to look on the dark side of life. A young couple and both blaming themselves, and yet life goes on in spite of tragedy, and how we approach it what this story is about. Home Sweet Home will bring you to tears, and yet the people God led this young family to will reinforce the goodness of mankind. If it weren’t under such severe circumstances, I could find myself enjoying living in a daadihaus. I had to wonder if this would be the catalyst that broke up this young couples relationship, or bring them closer together. Building Faith really brings to light the fact that you might not really know the person you are close to. Wood is about the open a new door to this Amish couple, and we are going to watch them struggle, and argue, and we hope rekindle what they have lost. We also meet dementia head on, or do we? Hiding illness because you are ashamed, and this isn’t limited to any community or ethnic group. I loved how this story brought this sad illness to light. A Flicker of Hope. Is exactly that, when at first a tragedy that befalls this couple, and they don’t seem to be handling it very well, and as the story unfolds, we see where a lot of the heartache is coming from. This is a sad story but I could see a light at the end of the tunnel, and with Amish there isn’t any divorce, so how can they work out all the problems they seem to have. A really sweet and page turning read here. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson and was not required to give a positive review.
