The Clipston story spoke to me the most - as it would any reader who has had a family member suffer a stroke, and the aftermath. The other stories were good - not saying they weren't - but this one stood out for me. Read full review

User Review  - wearylibrarian - LibraryThing

Three novellas that are centered around the same community. The kitchen is certainly the heart of the Amish home. It's great to follow an Amish community from the eyes of different authors. Read full review
