These stories were previously published in three other books, An Amish Cradle, An Amish Year and An Amish Garden and are now in a different compilation.
Enjoyed the stories and the authors' work.

I love the characters in this story and as Lenore tends for Jesse's daughter, they become friends as she learns to love the sweet little one in her care. During this time Lenore finds the jar filled with scriptures, thoughts and feelings which were placed by someone long ago. Who wrote these? No one seems to know.
This story has some interesting twists and turns. You will enjoy it especially if you have read The previous books and followed the family through each.
Very nice story. Great author.

It's a good Christian read and the author is very talented. Firefighters and police officers bring action into any book as they did here. Cassidy is a fire fighter who actively participates in her work. The book is very entertaining and lots of action to keep your interest. There is action, suspense and romance. A great combo and a great read!

I loved Gracie's personality. I thought she was amazing and had wonderful qualities, yet was not afraid to speak her mind when she felt it was needed. She had a lot of faith in God's path for her and those she came to care about deeply.
This was a genuinely good read, a clean and inspiring book. Loved it!

I totally enjoyed this historical novel of the experiences of faithful LDS as they followed the call that they were given by church leaders. It made me aware of the struggles, the faith and sometimes wavering faith as they gathered to go, to endure, to make changes and uproot themselves from their hard work.
This book was very enlightening and interesting with a very human touch as to the deep feelings and emotional and physical struggles that went on at this time. I highly recommend it!

Rivkah is a recent widow whose father has arranged a marriage to her deceased husband's brother. A type of arrangement known as a Levirate marriage where she is to marry the brother of her husband. She is not happy... And she flees the city of Kedesh where she lives. Eventually her heart changes and .... well, you will need to read it! Can't give it all away.
The book is so fascinating it will be impossible to lay down. You'll love reading this book! It brings Biblical times to life. It's so interesting to find yourself there in those days and the different culture and lives that these people lived. It was a well-crafted book you will want to share with all your friends!

I love when a book takes place in an area where I have either lived or visited as does this one in the Utah territory. Jack,as she is nicknamed, takes good care of her Pony Express stop after the death of her father. She's a woman doing a man's job in a man's world and does a great job at it.
The book has history, genealogy, and romance and western excitement! This is a wonderful addition to the series! The characters are wonderful!
I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it!
