Amish Celebrations {Review}


This four novella collection by Beth Wiseman covers the lives of Hannah, Elizabeth, Rebecca, Pricilla, and Mary.  Each novella, about 100 pages, can be read on its own with no overlap of characters in the span of a day or two.  

The first story, The Gift of Sisters, follows twins Hannah and Elizabeth, approaching their sixteenth birthday, and in love with the same man.  Who will win his heart?  And will it destroy their friendship?

The second story, A New Beginning, introduces us to Noah and Rebecca.  Nearing the end of his rumschpringe, Noah is excited to marry Rebecca and begin their life together.  That is until a mysterious young woman enters his life.  Will he walk away from the Amish life?  And what exactly is this young woman's connection to the Old Ways?

In A Perfect Plan, Pricilla has always been a perfectionist.  And her wedding day is no exception.  As the event draw near, a strange thing starts to happen.  Every time, Pricilla gets the hiccups, somethings goes amiss.  From housing problems to her fiancΓ© loosing his job, Pricilla begins to wonder if God isn't trying to tell them something.

The final novella, A Christmas Miracle, presents Mary, a young mother of five, overworked and discouraged.  As the holidays draw new, Mary finds herself stretched even thinner until a mysterious stranger and his sidekick appear.  Can the duo help Mary discover the joy of Christmas before it's too late?

This is the first time I've read any of Beth Wiseman's writings.  Each novella was enjoyable, although my personal favorite was A New Beginning.  The storyline of that one was fresh, interesting, and could easily be turned into a full fledged novel of its own.  This is one of those collections that I would reach for if I needed something light to read, but had limited time.  While I felt, a Perfect Plan, was lacking, the other three novellas made up for it, and I found Amish Celebrations to be an enjoyable summer read.
