The Amish Menorah by Patrick .E. Craig
This was a different kind of Amish story from what I am used to. But I liked it. Because in more than one way it pictured the Amish people in relationship to others. This one was sited during the Nazi regime when they returned to Rhineland home of Amish farmers after they lost to the French. It was so sad to read about how the Jews were mistreated and killed. This was really sad one. I loved reading how Gerd and Emily came to the knowledge of Jesus as their Savior. It was a thrilling story filled with so many ups and downs but totally worth it.
A Cloudy Day by Willard Carpenter.
Jacob and Hannah’s love is one of deferring all odds to be together. Short but wonderful story.
The Silo by Thomas Nye
The antics of the Chupp family will leave one in stitches. The highs and lows of this story was sad but at the end everything played out well. I really liked the Chupp family, lovely bunch!
Lone Star by Murray Pura
An Amish a lawman! That sure was the first for me. This story took me by surprise with the different events that are so unlike any Amish book I have read but refreshing.
Amish For The Summer by Amos Wise
This was my favorite of the stories. I loved the change that hardwork and reading of God’s word wrought in Diane. I loved how the story was not cliché but beautiful and surprising.
Overall, they are all good stories.
I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
About The Authors.
To know Wil, one would probably not think of him as an author. He is a husband, a father, a Christian, a veteran, a business owner, and a servant. He has led a life of bold and diverse experiences that immediately capture one’s attention. Wil has an unexpected artistic and creative side—something that might be considered uncommon, given his life’s works. Wil’s greatest inner strength is his expression and creativity. His life’s works give a credit to his writing that few other fiction authors possess. This generates a vivid degree of realism above and beyond other works of fiction.
