An Amish Reunion
An Amish Reunion:
Four Amish stories
By Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipston,
Kathleen Fuller and Kelly Irvin
Published by Zondervan, 9th April 2019
Four well-known and well-loved novelists provide stories relating to Amish folk's partings and eventual reunions under a wide variety of circumstances.
These range from a separated couple still grieving the loss of their only child, to a single Amish mother who is shocked when the father of her baby arrives back in her community, to the reappearance of a much-loved Englisch friend after many years and a family moving back to their home town after a long period away.
I found them all spiritually nourishing, all filled with grace and hope despite some of the hardest circumstances and situations that life can throw at us. A solid collection of Amish characters, some larger than life, some subdued, some lovable and some not so lovable, but all part of their communities and eventually accepted as such.
Thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for providing me with a free digital copy to read with a view to review.
