Book Review - "An Amish Miracle"

Book Description from the publisher:

“Always in My Heart” by Mary Ellis

Hope Bowman believes God is punishing her for giving up her firstborn son when she was a teenager. She’s hidden this past from her husband, who is thankful for their daughters but longs for a son. Hope prays desperately, but the son God sends isn’t a new pregnancy. It's the fifteen-year-old boy she gave away years ago.

“Always His Providence” by Ruth Reid

Widow Rosa Hostetler has one month to pay her delinquent taxes before the county auctions her farm. She’s prepared to sell whatever is necessary to pay the lien, but she isn’t willing to request money from the community's widow fund. She’s embarrassed and refuses to admit she needs help. Rosa depends on income from selling eggs, but when that income is threatened, only a miracle can help Rosa accept the kindness of a neighbor.

“Always Beautiful” by Beth Wiseman

Becky Byler is eighteen and obese. As she continues to grow, so does her despair. Having lost all hope, she considers taking her life, even though it goes against her beliefs. Standing before rushing water, unable to swim, Becky begs God for a miracle. Two months pass and Becky has miraculously lost over a hundred pounds. But does Becky like the person she has become? Could it be this weight loss isn’t at all the miracle she thinks it is?

My Review:

 You cannot go wrong when you see a collection written by these authors!  "An Amish Miracle" is the perfect book for this busy time of the year, as it is filled with three short novellas that you can escape into for short periods of time in the midst of all the crazy busyness of life during the holidays. Each of the three women whom these stories focus on are all needing something in their lives and they feel at a loss; however help comes in the form of a miracle and sent by God.  This is such an inspiring collection of stories and one that you cannot miss out on if you love Amish fiction and works by these authors!
