A Merry Heart (Brides of Lancaster County, Bk 1)
A Merry Heart - Brides of Lancaster County, Bk 1 Author:Wanda E. Brunstetter Miriam Stoltzfus once dreamed of a future with a certain man, until he jilted her. Could a forbidden romance with an Englisher thaw the "old maid" schoolteacher's stony heart? Or will she follow tradition and settle for a marriage of convenience? Either way, can she let go of the bitterness that shackles her love?
Another book with Amish characters from Ms Brunstetter. At first I had a hard time liking Miriam- she seemed very cold and bitter- but I changed my mind as the story advanced. I did enjoy the book and plan to read the rest of the series.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was just my type. This book is a lot different then most books now days, it was a good book but it was also very clean which was something I really liked about it. This book didn't have killing or any other negetive actions or words. I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.
A slow moving text of an Amish woman who struggles with keeping Christ in her heart and keeping cheerful in the midst of circumstances. The book has a good message, but is a slow and lazy read, and does not do much for entertaining the mind. Book also uses a lot of Pennsylvania Dutch Amish which was found to be difficult to understand.
