Three Kelly Long Amish novellas-available for the first time in one collection.

Christmas Cradles-When Anna takes over for her aunt, the local midwife, Christmas night heats up with multiple deliveries, three strangers' quilts, and unexpected help from the handsome, brooding Asa Lapp.

A Marriage of the Heart-Since her mother's death, Abigail Kauffman has lived alone with her father. She longs to escape the emptiness of the farmhouse that has never felt like home. Joseph Lambert is a newcomer in their close-knit community. Only after suddenly marrying do they begin to understand the tender truths of life-long love.

A Perfect Secret-Rose's betrothed, Luke, is safe and dependable-maybe a little too safe. Or so she thought, until she ran into him into the woods one night and learned there was more to him than she ever suspected. Now his secret haunts her. She wasn't sure about marrying a man she knew too well. But should she marry a man she doesn't understand at all?
