My Thoughts:

Under the Harvest Moon by Beth Wiseman pulled me in fast with my emotions going from angry, sad, and finally happiness throughout the book. 

Spoke with issues that I didn't really expect in the Amish but I realize they too have problems in life.  

Brock took center stage for me when he wanted a deeper experience with God.  He had true feelings and wasn't embarrassed when they came out in the open. 

This was a wonderful read that made me feel like I was right in the middle of their family life.

Love and Buggy Rides by Amy Clipston captured my attention with her great descriptions of a busy tourist town.    

Both main characters had good qualities that stood out for me.  I loved Janie who was sweet and kind and learned to speak up a little to her father.  I also loved Jonathan who confided in his grandparents about his problems.  I hope that happens our grand kids get older too. 

A great book that gives a connection between the modern world and the Amish way of life.  

Reading A Quiet Love by Kathleen Fuller had me thinking about disabilities and how we deal with them.  I understood more about our need to try and overprotect the ones we love. We all want what we feel like is best.  

I was torn with the choices in this book. I admit I was just like some of the characters in the book I had my doubts about the decisions made. Wonderful writing about what people can be if we let them.

Mischief in the Autumn Air by Vannetta Chapman is an great Amish Mystery! This book was filled with just enough romance, conflict, and mystery to keep me flipping the pages. 

Martha stood out for me when she handled a change in her life head on with grace.  She strong, willing to learn, loving and loves to read. All great qualities (I loved the last one).  

There was just enough mystery interwoven throughout this book that kept me wondering how it would turn out in the end.  

All of these books went in to such great detail it's hard for me to remember that they are novellas!  Wonderful books!
