If you are looking for a book to take with you on vacation this fall or maybe to relax by the pool this Labor Day weekend you should keep reading. An Amish Harvest may look thick but it’s four novellas bound together into one book. Perfect for vacation! With each story, roughly, being about 100 pages or so you can read a story from start to finish in an afternoon or even long plane ride.
When Naomi Dienner is suddenly widowed, she never expects to find love again . . . until she meets Brock Mulligan, an English family friend hired at harvest time. As a sinister presence begins to threaten Naomi, Brock seeks to prove himself trustworthy while struggling with growing feelings for Naomi and her children. Will God open Naomi’s heart—and give Brock his own second chance at love?
The second novella is Love and Buggy Rides by Amy Clipston.
Janie Lantz is a cashier at Lancaster Souvenirs and Buggy Rides, where Jonathan Stoltfuz is a buggy driver. A frightening accident brings Janie and Jonathan together in a blossoming friendship, yet daunting obstacles stand between them and something deeper. Can love kindle into flames that burn away fear and regret—and lead them to a life together?
The third novella is A Quiet Love by Kathleen Fuller.
When items start going above market value at his auction house, Eli Wittmer is first thrilled, and then puzzled. But when the house is broken into, Eli and his new bookkeeper, Martha Beiler track down a trail of clues. Will they solve the mystery before the fall festival ends—and discover an unexpected new love?
And the final novella is Mischief in the Autumn Air by Vanetta Chapman.
Dinah Hochstetler, quiet and bookish, longs for marriage but hides in her shyness. Amos Mullett, a simple farmer, knows he’s different but aches for a loving wife. As Dinah and Amos navigate a budding romance, will the power of love—and the blessing of God—be enough to overcome their doubters?
I enjoyed reading the novellas. I thought each one was well written and perfect for light reading. The characters are well developed and have depth. And each story left you wanting to know more. What’s going to happen next?
