Publisher's Description

A new novella collection of sweet, summer romances from some of our favorite Amish authors!

A Reunion in Pinecraft by Shelley Shepard Gray

When sisters Sharon and Sherilyn Kramer attend a wedding in Shipshewana, one of them returns with a new penpal while the other returns to her job at the bakery. After sending weekly letters back and forth, Sherry and Graham Holland arrange a reunion in Pinecraft. Upon Graham’s arrival, however, he realizes he’s been writing to the wrong sister. He decides to use the reunion as a way to get to know both sisters, but can he sort through the confusion in time to turn the worst vacation ever into something truly wonderful?

Summer Storms by Amy Clipston

Ariana is counting down the days until her wedding to Jesse. They have been friends longer than Arianna can remember, and that friendship turned into love over the past couple of years. But when Arianna’s brother Tobias, who happens to be Jesse’s best friend, gets them both into trouble, Arianna’s father puts an end to her engagement to Jesse. Some summer storms pass quickly, but Arianna is afraid the damage from this one may be too much to repair.

Lakeside Love by Kathleen Fuller

Esther has always lived in the shadow of her beautiful younger sister Sarah. Even the boy she has known—and loved—her entire life, Judah, only has eyes for Sarah. But when a handsome young Englischer comes to live with the family for a summer, everything begins to change.

One Sweet Kiss by Kelly Irvin

Everybody in little Bee County, Texas, can see the obvious: Jacob King and Martha Byler are meant to be together. Everyone, that is, but Martha. Ever since her mother died when Martha was a young girl, she has taken over the role of caregiver to her large family. And reckless Jacob, who has had a little too much fun on his rumspringa, only seems to add to the list of people to manage. But one summer changes everything, and these two may just find a way to meet in the middle and share one sweet kiss.

    Sweet Summery Amish Romances (for any time of year)

    Themes of faith and responsibility seemed to run through these novellas of summertime romance. This collection left me happy that I had read it, despite my inclination to take a break from Amish fiction earlier this summer, and with letter writing on my mind. Including one of the most romantic kisses Ive ever read in an Amish romance, this is a collection to enjoy when you need quick, sweet summery romance stories (with a little bit of grittiness) no matter what time of year.

    This review refers to a finished copy I received for review through Thomas Nelson and Zondervan's Fiction Guild. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Four endearing novellas each tug at the heart and enrich the spirit. They deal with mistakes and relationship problems, growing love and overcoming. Favorite authors of Amish books team up to offer an unforgettable offering of Amish stories. All are set during the summer, hence the title. The characters all seem so real and fallible, just like flesh-and-blood people you meet everyday. I was glad for another installment from Bee County, Texas, in Kelly Irvin's contribution. I received a copy from an author. All opinions are my own.

    A fun, easy summer read

    I thoroughly enjoyed An Amish Summer, a novella collection featuring stories written by Shelley Shepard Gray, Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller and Kelly Irvin. While not the most challenging or life-altering read, it is a sweet summer book that I am glad to have read. My favorite from the collection was Fullers book, Lakeside Love. I found the characters entertaining and I loved watching Esther grow and develop a sense of self. I also got quite a few chuckles throughout the story as well. I also thought Grays A Reunion in Pinecraft was a great way to start the collection, as it contained a case of mistaken identity that kept me engaged throughout the whole story. If youre looking for a feel-good, easy and fun book to read and enjoy this summer, or any time of year, Id recommend An Amish Summer.

    I was provided with a copy of this book by the Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own, and I was not compensated financially for sharing my opinions.

    I enjoyed reading all four of these novellas written by four well known authors, all writers of Amish fiction. The first two were stories dealing with misunderstandings. Mistaken identity and mistaken actions. Really comes across as a lesson for anyone. Don't jump to conclusions and listen to all the details before determining your response.

    The third novella is a lesson in taking someone at face value before really getting to know them. Outside appearances may draw initially but the real beauty comes from the inside.

    The fourth novella deals with two young people that have lost their mothers at a very young age. One takes their family responsibilities seriously and the other is still "sowing some wild oats". Will he ever grow up and will she ever let loose and have a little fun?

    All the characters in all four stories were well developed and were written where you came to care about them and what their outcomes would be. Even the wayward characters were gently shown their errors in what they were doing and nudged in the right, God honoring direction.

    Once I started reading it was hard to put it down and take care of my own responsibilities. But as the Bible says "there is a time and a place for everything under the sun". The summer sun. This was a delightful way to spend a few quiet hours and visit these different Amish communities.

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

    Great Amish book!

    I enjoyed reading this book with the collection of 4 Amish fiction novellas. Each novella was a short read but a very good read. The stories had relatable characters and caught my interest from the first pages.

    These stories are great to read especially if you don't have time to read a long book. The only drawback to reading novella is the book is over to quick and you want more from the story.

    I highly recommend this book! You will enjoy the 4 stories in the book.

    I read this book very quickly and highly enjoyed it.

    *I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. No review was required. My opinion is my own.
