    Tasty and Generally Satisfying, December 9, 2012

    Tracy D “Reviewer” (Pennsylvania) –

    This review is from: An Amish Kitchen (Paperback)

    As with other similar books I’ve reviewed, if you enjoy Amish fiction and romance (and especially short stories), then you likely will enjoy “An Amish Kitchen.” If you also enjoy baking or are trying to improve your baking skills, then you’ll be especially excited to discover there are 31 recipes included in “An Amish Kitchen.” (I was particularly excited to find a recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies, as I have three cans of pumpkin in my cupboard just begging to be made into a tasty treat.)

    “A Taste of Faith” by Kelly Long and “A Spoonful of Love” by Amy Clipston are both enjoyable but do follow something of a formula. One of the characters has a “secret” or one of the characters has a reason to believe he or she isn’t attractive and will find a spouse. Ultimately, the secret is revealed and all forgiven or accepted and the person who feels unattractive finds a mate. The manner in which this is accomplished, however, differs between each story and is not necessarily formulaic.

    “A Recipe for Hope” by Beth Wiseman is a bit different, focusing on various relationships in a family, those already established and those just budding.

    So bake yourself some soft pretzels, brew a cup of rose petal tea, or make a pot of chicken and corn soup and settle in a few an enjoyable read.

    Note: I received a review copy of this book from the publisher, Thomas Nelson.

    Three Amish stories in one volume, December 8, 2012

    This review is from: An Amish Kitchen (Paperback)

    When Abram Fisher’s parents are away for amonth and he is in charge of all the Fisher kinner (children), he has one opportunity after another to need the help of Fern Zook. Married to the land, Abram has no need of a wife. However, the attraction that begins to form between him and Fern leads him on a path he doesn’t expect.

    Hannah King runs a bed and breakfast, Paradise Inn. When Stephen Esh chooses to leave his Ohio home and travel to Paradise, PA, he settles in at Paradise Inn uncertain how long he will stay or where life will lead him next. There is definitely an immediate attraction between the two but memories of Stephen’s past haunt him and he must deal with those before he can love again.

    Eve Bender, at 38, is forced to move her family (including three teenage boys going through rumschpringe) back in with her parents when her home is damaged in a storm. It has been 20 years since Eve has been under her mother’s roof and there are some hard feelings between the two. Although uncomfortable at first, this time together might be just the answer to healing.

    Each of these short stories is set in Paradise, Pennsylvania but each is written by a different author. Each was entertaining if predictable. Because they were short, character development was brief. However, each could be read in an hour or two which is sometimes refreshing. Since most of the Christian Amish fiction seems to be written in series, it was sort of nice to be able to delve into these lives and not have to wait for another in the series to see what happens.

    The book also includes a reading group guide with questions for book discussion groups as well as 45 Old Order Amish recipes you’ll be sure to want to try. I did receive this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way obligated to leave a positive review. My thoughts–3 out of 5 stars. Good read but not great.

    Three great stories – and recipes too!, December 8, 2012
    By 

    This review is from: An Amish Kitchen (Paperback)

    These three stories are a wonderful way to spend a few hours taking a break from a busy life. Stories of love and redemption with characters that overlap in small ways through the other stories. Nothing here to give away what happens in the other stories so they can be read in any order.

    I enjoyed all three stories although I did feel one of them ended rather abruptly, just when it seemed like it was building to something, it was over. But all in all, they were all enjoyable.

    There are recipes in the back of the book as an added bonus.

    My Kindle copy of this book was provided by BookSneeze for my honest review.
