A Marriage of the Heart
Three Stories That Share the Adventures of First Love and Second Chances.
A Perfect Secret—Rose Bender’s betrothed, Luke Lantz, is safe and dependable, maybe a little too much so. Or so she thinks until she sees him in the woods one night and discovers a secret he’s been keeping. Now his secret haunts her. She wasn’t sure about marrying a man she knew too well. But should she marry a man she doesn’t understand at all?
Christmas Cradles—When Anna Stolis takes over for her aunt, the local midwife, Christmas night heats up with multiple deliveries, three strangers’ quilts, and unexpected help from the handsome and brooding Asa Lapp.
A Marriage of the Heart—Since her mother’s death, Abigail Kauffman has lived alone with her father. She longs to escape the emptiness of the farmhouse that has never felt like home. Joseph Lambert is a newcomer in their close-knit community. Only after suddenly marrying do they begin to understand the tender truths of life-long love.
If you're in the mood for a light read then this is the book for you. There are three novella's that are fun and each can be read in one sitting.
A Perfect Secret is about an Amish man who leaves the community to become an englisher, I thought this story was a bit odd and somewhat hard to follow. Definitely not my favorite.
A Christmas Cradle is such a sweet love story, Anna takes over for her midwife aunt on Christmas night and the fun begins with multiple deliveries and one Asa Lapp!
A Marriage of the Heart is a story of a woman who longs to escape her father's house. She meets and quickly marries a newcomer, over time they discover what it means to love someone.
Overall a nice read. 4 out of 5 stars. I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
