about

Always Beautiful by Beth Wiseman

Becky Byler is eighteen and overweight. She is overwhelmed by the embarrassment she feels when comparing herself to other girls her age. Having lost all hope, she considers taking her own life. As she stands before rushing water, unable to swim, Becky begs God for a miracle. In just several months, Becky sees her prayers answered as food and temptation lose their hold over her. She’s finally pleased with how she looks, but does she like the person she has become? And has the man she has dreamed of been right beside her all along, loving her exactly as she is?

Always His Providence by Ruth Reid

Widow Rosa Hostetler has one month to pay her delinquent taxes before the county auctions her farm. She’s prepared to sell whatever is necessary to pay the lien, but she isn’t willing to request money from the community’s widow fund. She’s embarrassed and refuses to admit she needs help. Rosa depends on income from selling eggs, but when that income is threatened, only a miracle can help Rosa accept the kindness of a neighbor.

Always in My Heart by Mary Ellis

Hope Bowman believes God is punishing her for giving up her firstborn son when she was a teenager. She’s hidden this secret from her husband, who is thankful for their daughters but longs for a son. Hope prays desperately, but the son God sends her isn’t a new baby but the fifteen-year-old boy she gave up years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Wonderful Amish Collection of Short Stories The thing I love about books will multiple fiction stories as I’ve experienced before is that each stories ties to another and the characters run through all the books. In “Always in My Heart”, Hope faces something horrific as a teenager, definitely something that a person would never want to go through? But her loving husband doesn’t see it the way her overbearing father does and finds a place in his heart to accept what happened and help her find that son. Ruth Reid continues the story of Hope’s best friend Rosa who is widowed so young in life and has no children to help carry on the farm. Ruth struggles to save her farm and pay the taxes. Rosa’s neighbour is determined to buy the farm and refuses to accept responsibility for his own part in her financial troubles but a neighbour made a promise to her husband and is not willing to give up. Beth Wiseman is truly an amazing writer, I have always love her stories and it’s not the first multiple author story that she has been a part of.  In “Always Beautiful”, it is rare that you hear of Amish that are “obese”, I am not stereotyping anyone but it is often in life we ask “how can they eat so much butter, flour and eggs and stay so thin?” the answer usually is “they work harder than most”. It’s nice to attach the North American struggles of obesity within her story and that she was loved no matter how she looked. I highly recommend this book for others who love a good Amish read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a super collection of novels WOW. What a fabulous novel! Miracles are all around us...from conception (which is a miracle in itself) and all through life. The successful surgery? Yep. Even successful diagnosis. The sun rising. Flowers bursting into bloom. Yes and yes. An Amish Miracle highlights three different miracles, but as I read these novellas my heart expanded and I thought of so many other miracles I see each day. These stories take place in an Amish setting, and though that causes some obstacles we might not face in today's society, it does not take away from the miracles of life. All three authors have done a fantastic work to place the reader in the settings, and I did not see the conclusion coming, which made the miracles so much more miraculous. Vivid imagery had me not only working beside the women as they struggled with their issues, but I found myself praying for their miracle! In my own life, the miracles came after a dark moment, which is, I suppose, the definition of miracle!  Those that have actually lived a miracle, or those who long for one in their own life or for their loved ones, will gain fresh insight, a fresh breath of life when they read this book! I read this in an Ebook, but will be buying the paperback in order to share with friends and family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Three novellas that share characters and community and seamlessly blend with each other. Brilliantly done. Each story is an incredible read. Though compact, the authors deliver with depth and emotion and page-turning plots. If you love Amish fiction you will adore An Amish Miracle.
