Publisher's Description

A Cup Half Full by Beth Wiseman—Sarah Lantz always dreamed of the perfect home, the perfect husband, the perfect family. When she married Abram, she knew she was on her way to securing her perfect life. But all of that changes in one moment when an accident leaves her unable to walk and confined to a wheelchair, dashing all of her dreams. As Abram starts to transform their home, Sarah begins a transformation in her spirit, and she begins, once again, to see her cup as half full.

Home Sweet Home by Amy Clipston—Down on their luck and desperate after they are evicted from their small apartment, Chace and Mia O’Conner reluctantly take Chace’s Amish boss up on his offer to rent them the daadihaus located on his property. They are certain they will never feel at home in the rustic cabin without any modern conveniences, and they start to blame each other for their seemingly hopeless situation. But with the help of their new Amish friends, Chace and Mia begin to enjoy their cozy cabin and realize that home really is where the heart is.

A Flicker of Hope by Ruth Reid—Fifteen years ago, Thomas and Noreen King were blissful newlyweds. Young, naive, and in love, life was rosy . . . for a while. Then trials and tribulations rocked their foundation, shattering them emotionally, and soon, their marriage was in shards. All hope for restoring their previously unshakable union seems lost. When fire destroys their home, Thomas and Noreen are left to sift through the rubble. As uncovered items from the remains of the house shake loose memories of the past, Thomas and Noreen begin to draw closer and a flicker of hope—and love—is reignited.

Building Faith by Kathleen Fuller—Faith Miller knows that carpentry is an unlikely hobby for a young Amish woman, but she loves the work and it keeps the memory of her grandfather alive. So when her cousin asks Faith to build the cabinets in her new home, Faith is only too happy to take on the job, even if it is the most ambitious project she has ever taken on. The only catch is that she has to work with her ex-fiance, Silas. As they work to build Martha’s kitchen, can they put the past behind them and start to build faith in one another again?

    An Amish Home was an enjoyable novella collection focusing on the home which will cause readers to think about what is truly home to them. Each novella was penned by talented authors, Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller and Ruth Reid, with their style of writing and characters that leaped off of the pages. My emotions were right there in the midst of each story with characters that were facing different circumstances in life, but in the end their view of home and values was what caused each one to appreciate, be thankful for each blessing, love and learn how to be satisfied with where they were living. There are plenty of realistic issues in these novellas focusing on loss, struggles, community, family, faith and love. Readers of Amish genre will want to pick up a copy of An Amish Home to read and discover home is where your heart is.

    These four stories by four different authors are so heartwarming, faith filled and real. When I'm really into a book, I can read it in record time, and this one was like that. Each story was unique with conflicts, troubles and issues to deal with.

    A Cup Half Full by Beth Wiseman moved me in that the main female character had an accident that caused her to be unable to walk. My brother was paralyzed a couple of years ago so I was able to understand some of her emotions as well as that of the other characters that were around her. Her new husband's guilt, her frustration at not being able to do what she was used to doing as well as her fear of getting pregnant and not being able to take care of a baby. Plus the added financial burden that her husband took on to accommodate her handicap in their house.

    In Home Sweet Home by Amy Clipston a young couple is struggling with tough times financially. After being evicted from their apartment they are offered a cabin to live in by the husband's boss. The boss and his family are Amish, but the young family are not. It is difficult for the wife to adjust to living with no electricity or adequate heat, especially with a young baby. I was inspired as they gradually worked out their problems and realized they could adjust to anything as long as they loved each other and stayed together as a family.

    A Flicker of Hope by Ruth Reid begins as a fire consumes an Amish home and destroys it as well as the contents. Thomas and Noreen have drifted apart over their fifteen year marriage. Problems and issues they have had to deal with have caused misunderstandings between the two. Sometimes it seems God has to take drastic measures to open the eyes of those He wants to pull back together. They had many obstacles to deal with as they adjusted to their new situation. I loved how the author interwove into the story the beginnings of their relationship and marriage to show why they thought and acted the way they did at the present time.

    I connected with Faith in Building Faith by Kathleen Fuller. The title seems to have a double meaning! Faith was unusual as an Amish woman in that she enjoyed woodworking. No one seemed to take her seriously. She wanted to carry on her grandfather's legacy. When given the opportunity to build cabinets for her cousin and the cousin's fianc for their new kitchen she jumps at the chance. But also asked to build the cabinets is Faith's ex-fianc Silas. Boy do the feathers fly, or should I say "saw dust"! They are at it from the beginning. Lots of hurt feelings, misunderstandings as well as immaturity and selfishness are dealt with along the way to a beautiful kitchen.

    These stories will all warm your heart and maybe even have you reaching for a tissue a time or two. I know I did! Five stars!

    I received this novel from the Fiction Guild and was not obligated to write a review, positive or otherwise.

    This an excellent collection of novellas, each with a unique take on the themes that unite them.



    In A Cup Half Full, Beth Wiseman tells the story of a young Amish couple struggling with the after effects of a traffic accident.

    Amy Clipston's Home Sweet Home refers to a daadihaus (small house that grandparents live in) a young Englischer couple are allowed to rent after the hospital bills for their child's birth leave them homeless.

    A fire leads to a Flicker of Hope for an unhappy couple in Ruth Reid's story, alternating between the happy beginnings and current struggles.

    And Kathleen Fuller gives us the story of two carpenters, one professional and one not, who are both struggling with grief and a need to prove themselves in Building Faith.

    Each author has crafted a portrait of a couple in crisis in an ultimately heart-warming story of a struggle with faith and bitterness when life has not turned out as expected. And each in some way has shown a different definition of home.

    Highly recommended if you enjoy, or would like to try, Amish fiction. Novellas are a great way to experience an author or a genre/sub-genre, and these would definitely have peaked my interest had they been the first I read in the Amish sub-genre. I look forward to reading more.

    This review refers to a finished copy received from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan's Fiction Guild, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    An Amish Home is a collection of four short novellas which focused on the everyday struggles of life, love, faith and hope. Home Sweet Home was my favorite. Mia came from a privileged home. She and Chace were down on their luck after being evicted from their apartment. They both reluctantly take his boss up on the offer to rent them the daadihaus. The cabin lacked modern day conveniences and soon they start to blame each other for the situation they are in, their finances and marriage. This is a story of redemption and learning to let go and let God.

    I had a hard time getting into this collection of four novellas. The subject matter and main characters in A Cup Half Full and Home Sweet Home just seemed disappointing - "another" crippling buggy accident, compounded by credit card debt, and an immature couple not quite ready for marriage and a sick baby (and they weren't even Amish!). I kept thinking that this is not where I want to spend my spare time. Even the happy endings didn't seem realistic or satisfying to me.

    However, I found the second two stories much more interesting. The struggles of Thomas and Noreen in A Flicker of Hope were more layered and involved. Even better was the relationship of Silas and Faith in Building Faith, though I couldn't get past the feeling that a chapter was missing between #8 and #9. Both of these novellas engaged my attention and made me want to read more about their characters and communities. The element of faith was also more believable in these stories than the first two.

    I think it's difficult to put together four different short stories by four very different authors and get them to "gel." I probably was spoiled by previous titles such as An Amish Garden and An Amish Cradle, also published by Thomas Nelson.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via The Fiction Guild, and was not required to post a review.
