Sweet Amish Stories of Love and Family -- An Amish Family

An Amish Family is a collection of four novellas written by Kathleen Fuller, one of my favorite Amish authors. Two of the stories have appeared in previous collections with other authors, and the other two are new to this collection.

As always, Kathleen gives us sweet stories of love and family filled with characters experiencing real feelings and struggles, such as: long-time hurts and grudges (Building Trust); secret, misplaced guilt (A Heart Full of Love); unexpected love (Surprised by Love); and complicated relationships (A Gift for Anne Marie).

While my favorites are usually full-length novels and multi-volume series, I enjoy reading these smaller novellas from time to time. Each story can be read at a short sitting, or you can easily enjoy a little longer journey through the entire collection. 

I highly recommend An Amish Family to fans of great Amish romance.

Thanks to Booklook Bloggers for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

In An Amish Family, beloved author of Amish romance, Kathleen Fuller, invites readers into the lives of four Amish families.
Building Trust
Grace Miller and Joel King are in love. They’ve dated secretly for the past year and when he proposes marriage, Grace eagerly agrees.

But when her mother’s behavior becomes unbearable, Ellie is forced to take a stand . . . and finally find out why Mamm can’t let go.
Surprised by Love
In a desperate move to evade her match-making mother, Emily Shwartz announces that she’s already seeing someone: Reuban Coblentz. The trouble is, Reuban is barely even a friend. Seeing how desperate she is, Reuban plays along. But when the past sneaks up on them, will this temporary arrangement turn into everlasting love?
A Gift for Anne Marie (also in An Amish Second Christmas)
Anne Marie and Nathaniel have been best friends since they were kids. Now things are evolving . . . in ways everyone else predicted long ago. But when her mother suddenly decides to remarry in another state, Anne Marie’s new chapter with Nathaniel looks doomed to end before it begins.
