Seasons of an Amish Garden Four Stories By Amy Clipston

Seasons of an Amish GardenFour Stories

By Amy Clipston 

Enjoy a year of beautiful seasons in this new story collection, as young Amish couples manage a community garden and harvest friendships and love along the way.
Spring Is in the Air
As the young people of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, plant a garden in memory of their friend, Katie Ann begins to worry that her older brother, Ephraim, is dating her best friend. What if she somehow loses them both? But Christian, a new boy in the community, also works in the garden—and falling for him may be exactly the distraction, and lesson, that Katie Ann needs.
Home by Summer
Clara Hertzler is surprised when Jerry Petersheim, her old friend, comes to the garden to drop off his younger sister—especially because Jerry has been gone for years, and now seems to be living as an Englisher. As the friends get to know each other again, Clara pushes Jerry to examine why he abandoned his Amish beliefs. Will Clara help Jerry renew his faith in God, and will they find love beneath the summer sun?
The Fruits of Fall
Tena Speicher has come to live in Bird-in-Hand after her fiancĂ© left her for an English woman. When a homeless veteran comes to the fruit stand one day and asks for food, Tena is not sure how to respond—but Wayne intervenes and offers to let him stay in the barn. Afraid to trust Englishers, Tena must learn, with Wayne’s help, that everyone is a child of God and deserving of kindness.
Winter Blessings
Ephraim and Mandy have dated for some time and now have plans to marry. But after a series of unexpected events and misunderstandings, they wonder if they should go their separate ways. What will happen when their friends at the Amish garden conspire to bring them back together?
My Thoughts:
As an avid Amy Clipston fan, Seasons of Amish Garden did not disappoint! Amy continues to write amazing stories and this novella collection is again another compilation of her amazing talent to craft beautiful stories to engage the reader into a deeper story of faith, romance, friendship and family. I love that I was able to revisit Hank the cat from Amy's previous book in an Amish Christmas Love! If you haven't checked out that collection of Christmas Novella, I recommend you do! It is a delight and one of my favorite stories by Amy, so I was thrilled to read Spring is in the Air, which is my favorite story out of this collection. Don't take my word for it, but grab a copy today! You will love this book. 
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. A review was not required.
