I have never read an Amish romance novel before, so decided to try one out and see what all the fuss is about. An Amish Harvest is a short book which consists of four novellas by four different authors. The stories all revolve around the Amish way of life.
Because the stories are by four different authors, you will notice some differences in writing style and word usage. The styles are all similar enough that it shouldn’t be too much of an issue. The first story has to do with an Amish widow and an English (what the Amish call non-Amish people) widower; the second is about a man and woman who bond after an accident; the third tells the story of a couple of young people who are different from others in their community and find understanding in one another; the last one is about a mystery and how a couple of middle-aged people bond during the shared experience. Please, don’t ply me for details–it will ruin the stories for you!
I enjoyed the first two stories very much. They were engaging and the characters were likeable. The third story was pretty good, though it was missing a certain something to make it sparkle. I didn’t enjoy the fourth story at all. It seems like the characters weren’t very endearing and the plot was not engaging enough.
I feel like this book would appeal to women who love a wholesome love story. It’s a fun, short read that could fill up a couple of cozy evenings on the couch.
