After reading The Secrets of Willow Springs, I was excited to get a copy of this book too. This is a collection of several short stories that delve into the lives of different women. The first one begins with Emma, the protagonist of the Secrets of Willow Springs, but she is fourteen at this time. I like this because it gives some of the backstory between her and Samuel, her best friend Katie’s brother.
The other stories touch on other women that I’m guessing Tracy will expound on in future books.
I enjoyed each of these stories. Although they are brief glimpses into the lives of these women, it was enough to pull on my heartstrings and leave me wanting to know more about these ladies.
I’m sure readers of Amish fiction will enjoy these stories as much as I did. I look forward to Tracy’s next book!
Heart-Touching Amish Fiction
Tucked away in Northwestern Pennsylvania, resides a small group of Amish that calls Lawrence County their home. Along the winding country roads, etched with well-worn buggy tracks, are families that hold the values of God, Family, and Community deep in tradition. Among them, are ten women whose lives intertwine in this quiet Pennsylvania town. I invite you to come with me as I take you for a walk in a “day in the life” of these Amish women.
Each of them is led by the Lord to take care of her family, and each embraces her role as the one who holds her family together. Some will discover new love, one will battle health issues, some will need to forgive, and others will find who they are in Christ. But what binds them all together is their desire to serve God, love their families, and support their community by loving their neighbors, just as God instructs them to do.
