Book Review: The Amish Kitchen

I always love reading Amish stories.  Sometimes the plot lines are a little dry but not in this book.  An Amish Kitchen by Beth Wiseman, Kelly Long, and Amy Clipston are three stories on three different women in an Amish community in Paradise, PA. 

Fern is the local herbalist in her Amish community.  Her world and heart are turned upside down when her neighbor, declared bachelor, Abram comes to her house for help for his siblings.  In only a few weeks her life changes like she never expected.

Hannah is running her parents bed and breakfast when a stranger asks for a room.  Stephen is running away from his community to Paradise for a new start on life.  Fate sends him to a small bed and breakfast in Paradise, PA.  As these two lives collide they find comfort and friendship together and maybe something more.

Eve is forced to move her family into her parents’ house after theirs in damaged during a storm.  Eve is forced to be in close quarters with her mother, whom she’s never gotten along with.  Her mother is judgmental on herself and how they raise her children.  She struggles with how to connect to her mother and survive the stay.

These three stories are great reminders that God is always in control and has a divine plan.  All we need to do is trust and obey.  There will be many hardships but many moments of Joy and it’s all for the glory of God.

Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free from to read and review.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
