An Amish Kitchen by Beth Wiseman, Kelly Long & Amy Clipston

Book Description:  The Amish Kitchen is the Heart of the Home – and the Ideal Setting for Stories of Love and Hope.
Fall in Paradise, Pennsylvania, always brings a brisk change in the weather. This season also ushers in unexpected visitors, new love, and renewed hope for three women.
Fern has a green thumb for growing healing herbs, but longs for love to bloom in her life. Then the next-door neighbor’s oldest son, Abram, comes running into Fern’s kitchen seeking help for his little sister. The crisis soon leads to a promise of romance—until mistrust threatens to end the growing attraction.
Nearby, Hannah runs her parents’ bed and breakfast, Paradise Inn—but her life feels nothing like Paradise. She longs for a man of integrity to enter her life, but never expected him to knock on the front door looking for a room. Will she be able trust Stephen with her future once she discovers his mysterious past?
When a storm blows a tree onto Eve’s farmhouse, she has little choice but to temporarily move her family into her parents’ home. Outside of cooking together in the kitchen, Eve and her mother can’t agree on anything. But this may be just the recipe for hope in healing old wounds.

My Thoughts:  Wow!  Three amazing Amish authors in one read!  

A Taste of Grace:  Fern is a lonely herbalist living with an aunt and uncle.  She longs for a love of her own.  A sweet story!

A Spoonful of Love:  Hannah runs a bed and breakfast and keeps care of her ailing father.  Her brother is too busy with his own family to help her with the care of the bed and breakfast so enter Stephen.  Stephen is dealing with issues from a painful past.  This was my favorite short story of the three!

A Recipe for Hope:  Eve and her mother just can't seem to agree or get along.  What a challenge for the two to try and get along while Eve's house is being built.  A story of grace and forgiveness!

I enjoyed this  book!  And it's in three short stories which makes it easy to read.  
If you're a fan of Amish fiction and love short stories this is the book for you!
Makes a wonderful "gut" gift too!
