A Marriage of the Heart

By Kelly Long
Published by Thomas Nelson

It a great story. There is some one steals from others in the Amish community. Though no one knows who or why at first, the reasoning is heart filling.

Luke and Rose are to be married, now that Rose accepted his proposal. They were best friends since they were kids. Rose finds out Luke is hiding something and you could never guess what until it is literally spelled out. They had a good ending. I loved the descriptions.

Awesome story about Anna, who is a mid-wife. She goes to help her Aunt out with her mid-wife business while she goes on a vacation. She meet Asa who is her driver, that will help her to the birthing(s) if there is any that night. There are 3 possibilities for births, and at least one will come, or even more...

I couldn't stop reading once i started, i just had to finish it.

At the beginning a girl, Abigail Kauffman, is annoyed by a guy (by his casual dismissal of her beauty), Joseph Lambert, and to pay him back she says that "he . . . well . . . just made me feel a little uncomfortable with the way he was kissing me . . . and touching . . . and I . . ." Her father then says he will talk to him and they will be married, but that wasn't what she wanted, but her father said to dress in blue (which is the color for marrying). Now she will have to face his scorn.

This story, when read in full, warms the heart. It made me smile in a lot of different parts of the story. Great story that is well written.

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.
