An Amish Family: Four Stories by Kathleen Fuller

Book Description:  Four wonderful Amish stories . . . 

My Thoughts:  Building Trust~ Grace and Joel are madly in love.  So when Joel proposes to Grace, she excitedly tells her parents that she will be marrying Joel.  She gets an unexpected response from her father.  Her father is against her marrying Joel.
Grace is heartbroken but is determined to get to the bottom of her father's animosity towards Joel.  
An interesting story that shows that Amish father's are so much like English fathers.

A Heart Full of Love~ This story was also in An Amish Cradle. Ellie is blind, she lost her sight and now she is pregnant.  Not only is it difficult being pregnant but her mother is meddling in all of Ellie and her husband's business.  
When Ellie gives birth to twins her mother insists on coming to stay.
This short story is humorous because it shows how Amish mothers are just as concerned for their offspring as English mothers.

Surprised by Love~ This is quite a funny short story.  Poor Emily is hounded by her mother who is constantly trying to match her up with a man.
In a desperate attempt to have some sanity and try to find her own love, Emily tells her mom that she is seeing Reuban Coblentz.  The funny part is that Reuban is already seeing someone but seeing how desperate Emily is, he decides to play the part of her boyfriend.  
Oh, my!  
Such a fun story.

A Gift for Anne Marie~ This short story was also in An Amish Second Christmas.  Anne Marie and Nathaniel have been best friends since they were children.  And now it seems that their relationship is growing towards love but lo and behold, Anne Marie's mother up and marries someone from another state.  
It seems that Anne Marie and Nathaniel's love story may end before it has a beginning.
