What a quaint novella set!

I really enjoyed this audiobook version.
Thinking about the summer, this was perfect. I think I would prefer a full novel, instead of novellas. Thus a lesser star, but such a great set of books together and certainly loved all the little things in each book. They wrapped up sweetly!

A sweet compilation for a summery read while working in the garden!

I absolutely loved this book, but what's not to love? The book is a compilation of 4 novellas, written by four authors, whose works include Amish fiction, where each novella centers around the theme of gardening. I find it difficult to write about each one without giving too much away, so let me just say this: Beth Wiseman, Kathy Fuller, Tricia Goyer, and Vannetta Chapman have each written a lovely novella that includes romance, humor, and faith wrapped into a very touching and sweet story.

An Amish Garden is a collection of four novellas written by authors whose books I enjoy reading. The common theme in all the stories is, of course, the gardens. Each story was well written and a page turner in its own right.

Rooted in Love by Beth Wiseman is a story of love and misunderstanding. Saul Petersheim and Rosemary Lantz had courted and were in love. Then, out of the blue, she broke up with him when she was sixteen. He had no clue what he had done to cause her to end the relationship. Th

This is a nice, heartwarming novella collection. Each story is centered around an Amish garden.

In Beth Wiseman’s Rooted For Love, Rosemary has been in love with Saul for a long time. They dated as teens and she abruptly ended their relationship, not giving Saul a reason for her actions. In spite of the breakup, her feelings for Saul have continued to grow over the years. An accident brings Saul back into her life, and he’s now helping her to care for her neglected garden. Can the truth be uncove

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

An Amish Garden is special to me because it is a collection of stories written by four of my favorite Amish authors! It is like getting four books in one!! And Each story is wonderful, I can’t pick out a favorite because I love them all! Each story involves a young struggling to find her way in the life she is living in, through following her God. And each one seems to be dealing with loneliness of one kind or another. As with all Amish books, this was a delightful rea

For an Amish fiction lover like me, this book has it all! It is a collection of four novellas by some of my favorite authors. All of the stories stand independently from each other and since they are novellas, they are faster reads than a standard length novel. However, all four stories are very full and well-developed. I connected with the characters in each of the stories and felt invested in how things would turn out for them.

In each novella, a garden is central to the storyline. The themes o

Overall, I enjoyed this book. Where Love Blooms , the last story was all right. I liked the characters and the setting. I didn't enjoy the story. I thought there would be more gardening involved. This story got 3 stars. I did like the other three stories. I liked Rooted in Love , Flowers for Rachel, and Seeds of Love . 4 stars for each of these stories. The gardens were prominently involved in each of those stories. I really enjoyed that. Flowers for Rachel was my favorite story. I thought that ...more

"AN AMISH GARDEN" is an absolute must read if you like Amish novels.....and if you have never read an Amish story before, then this is the one for YOU!! All four novels are fantastic! Great writings by four wonderful Christian romance writers, interesting concepts, exciting stories, excellent themes and intriguing characters, and the kind of book you just can't lay down!

Each story was absolutely beautiful, it was amazing to see each character grow into who they were meant to be and to watch them find their path along life's winding road. Everyone can relate to something in each story whether it's loss, grief, abuse, joy, love... Each story is full of life, and that's something we all are going through no matter what path we are on.

Rooted in Love by Beth Wiseman

Rosemary Lantz is doing her best to run her family’s household. She excels at all her tasks except one: gardening. Saul Petersheim has pursued Rosemary for years, but Rosemary keeps turning him down. What Saul doesn’t know is that she has good reason—something no one can know—especially not him.

Good story. Rosemary and Saul had dated when they were teens, until Rosemary abruptly broke things off. Now she takes care of her widowed father and her three brothers, and

An Amish Garden
This wonderful book, which entails four Novellas, written by four wonderful authors, shows how the gardens in our lives help us to move ahead and as stated in the final novella by Vannetta Chapman, Gardens will bless your soul.
“They are a place to rest, to draw near, and to heal.” I especially loved that line and marked it as I was reading the book, because that is how I truly feel about gardens, as well.

MY REVIEW of Planting a Future by Beth Wiseman--"He's doing it again," Rosemary whispered to Esther. "Smiling and staring at me."
Rosemary and Saul are being offered a second chance at love and so is Rosemary's father, Wayne. When an accidental run-in between Saul and Wayne results in both men being injured, Wayne is unable to complete his farm work and Saul offers to do it for him as well as planting a vegetable garden for Rosemary. Rosemary hasn't had time for planting a garden since her mamm

I was excited to see this book - several of my favorite authors, and a subject that is dear to my heart - and it did not disappoint!
In "Rooted in Love," Beth Wiseman shows the age-old cost of eavesdropping. Will Rosemary miss out on the love of her life because she thinks she knows what's best for her future? The chemistry between her and Saul is true to life. I couldn't put this book down as I ached for them to experience God's best.
In "Flowers for Rachel," Kathleen Fuller writes a love story o

Rooted in Love by Beth Wiseman
Beth Wiseman has written a poignant Amish story of love and loss based on a conversation the main character overheard. Two people's lives are fraught with dismay that honesty, openness and trust would have assuaged. The author paints a realistic portrait of Amish life, creating characters with emotion and sensitivity. I enjoyed this short story of relationships and the developments that resulted despite a misunderstanding.

An Amish Garden is a collection of four novellas by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Tricia Goyer, and Vannetta Chapman. I enjoyed all of the stories, but I think my favorite one was Flowers for Rachael. It was a fun, sweet read, but the other three novellas were a close second! It's unusual to enjoy all the stories so much, but I did. Each story pulled me in from the beginning and reluctantly let me go at the end.

Four of my favorite authors have gotten together to write a book of four individual stories. Each story has a different setting, in Amish Communities. One theme is prevalent in each of the stories, and that is gardening.
I read my book on my kindle and each story was just about 25%, so you could read a little while and actually have time to finish and know the ending quickly. Of course, having read most all the books by these authors, I am familiar with the communities they reside in. Loved bein
