Front Cover
Thomas Nelson Inc, Aug 9, 2011 - Fiction - 422 pages

Three hope-filled stories about second chances, trusting your heart, and the power of forgiveness.

Healing Hearts--Empty-nesters Levina Lapp and her husband Naaman have no children under their roof for the first time in 30 years. When Naaman leaves to visit cousins in Ohio, Levina never expected him to be gone a year. Now that he's back, will they be able to move beyond this estrangement and rekindle the fire of the love they once shared?

A Change of Heart--Leah is a writer in a community that does not encourage such fruitless endeavors. She lacks the skills necessary to be a good Amish fraa--cooking, cleaning, quilting, and gardening. Aaron is aware of Leah's short-comings, but his heart is captured by this spirited young woman. Will Leah's role as an Amish wife and mother force her to set aside her creative life--or will Aaron make an offer she never dreamed was possible?

A Choice to Forgive--Lydia has loved two men in her life. Daniel, who disappeared one Christmas Eve long ago, leaving only a note saying he wanted to live in the Englisch world. And Elam, Daniel's brother, to whom she had been happily married for 15 years. When Elam dies, Lydia gives up on ever loving again. But she is shocked when Daniel wants to return to the Order and her life. Is there enough forgiveness in her heart to overlook the past and move into a future that could fulfill her dreams?

What a good idea - to collect 3 Amish novellas, not connected in any way, into one volume. They were simple to read, without the plot being too complex, and yet they held my interest, built my faith ... Read full review
