Review of Kelly Long's A Marriage of the Heart

    Picture and Descrption from BookSneeze

Book Description

Three Stories That Share the Adventures of First Love and Second Chances.

A Perfect Secret—Rose Bender’s betrothed, Luke Lantz, is safe and dependable, maybe a little too much so. Or so she thinks until she sees him in the woods one night and discovers a secret he’s been keeping. Now his secret haunts her. She wasn’t sure about marrying a man she knew too well. 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. Joseph Lambert is a newcomer in their close-knit community. Only after suddenly marrying do they begin to understand the tender truths of life-long love.

My Review:

These were three charming Amish romances.  I think I liked A Perfect Secret the best.

The Perfect Secret--I liked this story because I liked the little bit of mystery as to who the Rob In the Hood was.  I thought Luke and Rose made a great couple.  I like how after Luke told Rose his secrect she made him see that their community would help him.  Great story.

Christmas Cradles--This is the story of Anna and Asa.  Anna is a midwife out  helping her aunt on a snowy 2nd Christmas early morning.  Asa  is sent to take her to the homes where she needs to go.  Both had given up on love, but De Herr had a different plan.  This too was a great story.

A Marriage of the Heart--Abigail lies about Joseph and her father forces him to marry her.  They overcome a lot, but figure out that they truely do love each other.  A story that shows how GOD always comes through and helps you when you need Him most.  Great  story.

All three stories were well written.  Great job Kelly Long.

I recommend this book, it was a very fast read.  I recieved by review copy from BookSneeze for my honest review.
