Good collection of Amish stories

Ms Bell did an excellent job of explaining the Amish way of life.
I have enjoyed reading stories about the Amish community and find the stories very enlightening. The one thing I have enjoyed the most is the clean language and the love stories having moral lives. Thank you for sharing your style of writing, please continue your excellent ability.

Positive Amish Stories

Each story has a positive ending. Characters are well written and plots simple enough, while touching your heart. Needs more proofreading but only minor issues.

A different kind of romance. I enjoyed learning about the culture, but I wanted more romance. I felt like we were focused on the heroine, and not enough on the development between her and her future husband. It felt like an after thought.

Misunderstood

It was okay but I didn't understand it to much. I enjoy these stories but this one was disappointing to me.
