Kathleen Fuller writes a variety of Amish stories and encompasses diversity in the Amish culture. Some of the districts are strict Old Order and some are more lenient.
In this compilation of stories, An Amish Family, Kathleen gives us four narratives, each different and each equally compelling.
Building Trust is how we often hold resentment and forgiveness, which is often undeserved, and it can destroy our other relationships. Grace’s Daed forbids her to be courted by Joel because of something he did as a youth.
In A Heart Full of Love Chris and Ellie are expecting their first child, but Ellie was blinded in an accident and her Mamm is not convinced she is able to care for the child. Her Mamm’s interference cause’s resentment and misunderstanding, and Chris decides he has to step in.
Emily and Reuben are Surprised by Love, when they enter into a plan to stop their parents from matchmaking and pushing them to find love.
When Anne Marie’s Mamm decides to remarry and move to Ohio, in A Gift for Anne Marie, she must evaluate her friendship with Nathaniel. Nathaniel has to decide if he wants her to move or if there is more to their friendship.
