Publisher's Description

Spend a year in Amish country with four sweet romances.

Rooted in Love (previously published in An Amish Garden)

Rosemary Lantz is doing her best to run her family’s household. She excels at all her tasks except one: gardening. Saul Petersheim has pursued Rosemary for years, but Rosemary keeps turning him down. What Saul doesn’t know is that she has good reason—something no one can know—especially not him.

A Love for Irma Rose

The year is 1957, and young Irma Rose has a choice to make. Date the man who is "right" for her? Or give Jonas a chance, the wild and reckless suitor who refuses to take no for an answer?  Irma Rose steps onto the path she believes God has planned for her, but when she loses her footing, she is forced to rethink her choice.   

Patchwork Perfect

Eli Byler has been a widower for two years when he chooses to make a fresh start in Paradise, Pennsylvania. As Eli juggles the admiration of two women, he meets Miriam Fisher—the most unconventional Amish woman he’s ever met. She doesn’t fit the mold for what Eli is looking for, but it isn’t long before Eli realizes that Miriam is everything he wants. But Miriam has no plans to get married—ever.  Will Eli be able to change her mind?

When Christmas Comes Again (previously published in An Amish Second Christmas)

Katherine knows the first Christmas without Elias will be hard for her and the children. But when a mysterious Englischer appears with photographs of her late husband, Katherine begins to wonder what other blessings Christmas could have in store.

    Amish novellas are one of my favorite reads. In An Amish Year, Beth Wiseman has written four sweet stories: Rooted in Love, A Love for Irma Rose, Patchwork Perfect, and When Christmas Comes Again. Beth is known for her heart-warming Amish Fiction.

    I don't want to give away too much about each story so here is a short product description from cbd.com: Spend a year in the Amish country with four romances! Rosemary's keeping a secret Rooted in Love. Who will become A Love for Irma Rose---the man who wants to marry her, or the non-committal boy she desires? Eli thinks Miriam's Patchwork Perfect, but his children disapprove. And recently widowed Katherine dreads the season When Christmas Comes Again.

    Each novella has a truth revealed about a character. I liked seeing preconceived notions fall away and love being let in. The more I read through the novellas, the more I enjoyed this collection. The last two stories are definitely my favorites! I think fans of the Daughters of the Promise series will enjoy learning about Jonas and Irma Rose's beginnings. What made this novella collection unique was that all four are by the same author. I would recommend this book, I know I liked it. I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.

    Most of the time, we simply don't have the time to read a full length novel but wish we had the time. The perfect solution for those situations is to get a hold of a collection of your favorite genres all combined in one book in the form of novellas or simply short novels. For me, Beth Wiseman is definite a favorite author and whenever I see her name, I know I am in for a great novel or in this case a great collection of novellas in particular to the Amish Romance genre in An Amish Year.

    This is a collection of four novellas that bring about the changing seasons in the life of the Amish people we read about in each of the short novellas to bring us full circle in a calendar year. You'll find Rooted in Love, about Rosemary Lantz who like most Amish excels in everything, except gardening and it will take the hard work of Saul Petersheim to try and win her heart but helping her out with learning to garden. In A Love for Irma Rose, this one takes us back to 1957 when Irma Rose needs to decide which man is the right choice for her. Does she take a chance on the one who she believes is right for her or the one who seems a bit on the wild side? Patchwork Perfect chances places from the previous story and puts Eli Byler at the heart of picking which woman would be best suited for him as a widower, Miriam Fisher who is unconventional when it comes to an Amish woman who makes him second guess all his choices for what he believes he wants in a wife. Finally in When Christmas Comes Again, Katherine has to learn how to navigate recent waters of being a single parent when she faces the loss of her husband and must find a way to bring joy back into Christmas for her children, but will it be an English man that turns her head and heart?

    I received An Amish Year by Beth Wiseman compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation, aside from a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest and personal evaluation. For me, what I loved the most is at the conclusion of these novellas, there is a note from Beth telling you where you can find more of the full-length novels dealing with the families you meet in these novellas. This makes that need to finish learning more about what happens next easier to navigate and gives the reader a true sample of the stories you are likely to find. For me, it simply means I need to work on updating my 'must read' list with the ones I found and fell in love with in this collection. Well worth all 5 out of 5 stars in this book lover's heart.

    Rooted in Love (previously published in An Amish Garden)

    Rosemary Lantz is doing her best to run her familys household. She excels at all her tasks except one: gardening. Saul Petersheim has pursued Rosemary for years, but Rosemary keeps turning him down. What Saul doesnt know is that she has good reasonsomething no one can knowespecially not him.

    My thoughts: I read Rooted in Love in An Amish Garden, but I didn't remember it, so I reread it. Saul is stubborn, proud, and just like a man, ignores his injuries--he's also somewhat of a wimp and can't handle seeing his arm all torn up from an accident. Rosemary is opinionated and holds the power of hurting several people in her hands. When she discovers long held beliefs are not true is she strong enough to change her opinion? Apologize? I loved Saul's tenacity and how he is so willing to serve Rosie and her family despite his physical and emotional pain. A good novella with a garden theme. 4 stars.

    A Love for Irma Rose

    The year is 1957, and young Irma Rose has a choice to make. Date the man who is right for her? Or give Jonas a chance, the wild and reckless suitor who refuses to take no for an answer? Irma Rose steps onto the path she believes God has planned for her, but when she loses her footing, she is forced to rethink her choice.

    My thoughts: This was a cute story. More telling than showing at first, but it picked up about midway through. Jonas was a lovable rascal and Irma Rose is the love of his life--but she doesn't know it. Instead she's dating someone else. When Jonas's mother ends up in the hospital with a bad ulcer things change and not for the better. I enjoyed these two characters and it is the prequel to Ms. Wiseman's best selling family saga series, Daughters of the Promise. 4.5 stars.

    Patchwork Perfect

    Eli Byler has been a widower for two years when he chooses to make a fresh start in Paradise, Pennsylvania. As Eli juggles the admiration of two women, he meets Miriam Fisherthe most unconventional Amish woman hes ever met. She doesnt fit the mold for what Eli is looking for, but it isnt long before Eli realizes that Miriam is everything he wants. But Miriam has no plans to get marriedever. Will Eli be able to change her mind?

    My thoughts: This story was fairly predictable, but good. I enjoyed getting to know Miriam and glad Eli knows his own mind and isn't willing to settle for just anyone. The way it ended was sweet, but as someone who is also allergic to cats I wondered how they would work out that hurdle. The side story about Grace and her boyfriend included a good message teenage girls need to hear. 4 stars.

    When Christmas Comes Again (previously published in An Amish Second Christmas)

    Katherine knows the first Christmas without Elias will be hard for her and the children. But when a mysterious Englischer appears with photographs of her late husband, Katherine begins to wonder what other blessings Christmas could have in store.

    My thoughts: When Christmas Comes Again wasn't technically a romance, though Katherine's oldest daughter has a beau. It was women's fiction. I enjoyed getting to know Katherine and hearing some of the details of her deceased husband's life--that he didn't even know. I enjoyed reading this story. Ms. Wiseman's writing talents shine with women's fiction. 4.5 stars.

    I enjoy these collections of four Amish novellas that Thomas Nelson has begun putting out. And I was so excited when this collection came up for review with Booklook. I was glad when it arrived as I was anxious to read it.

    Beth Wiseman has done it again! Such an incredibly faith-filled and wonderful author, tipping the pen to write a novel(s) that are as refreshing in faith as they are in proise!

    Although I have read Beth's work previously, this novella of 4 stories contained new stories, new cast of characters that make you feel so at home - as if you knocked on their door and they invited you in to break bread and become part of their families.

    While An Amish Year does contain one (possibly two?) repeat stories, this book overall has a wonderful flow as it follows Irma and Saul through their teenage years and beyond. The surprising twist of why Irma originally breaks off her relationship with Saul is haunting and heartbreaking, but it weaves a tale to be told! This book is faith strong and fast, heartbreak and redemption and, of course, love.

    The recipe collection included in this book was an added bonus and wonderful surprise!

    5 well deserved stars!

    You can't go wrong with a Beth Wiseman book. You will always be refreshed. It is better to read the 4 book description given above. I had already read the 4th story coming into this, but that didn't stop me from getting this book or reading it.

    She places you in the story and uses scripture to uplift and inspire you along with giving you a story that you will love! I would reccomend this book. I received this book free for my honest opinion from booklook bloggers.
