I really enjoyed this latest novella collection! I have read books by each of each authors and love their work, so I was thrilled to see this collection. Each of the stories is so sweet as babies are being born and these couples are adjusting to life with a new baby among the many challenges that arise. There are some sensitive topics that are addressed in these stories and they are written about and handled well in my opinion. I felt as if I could empathize with these couples throughout reading these novellas and they became so real to me, which is my book means that the author has done an excellent job with creating the characters and developing them. I highly recommend this collection to anyone whom enjoys Amish stories and wants a quick, sweet read to enjoy.
