An Amish Garden by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Tricia Goyer and Vanetta Chapman

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

An Amish Garden by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Tricia Goyer and Vanetta Chapman
ISBN: 9781401689797
Trade Paperback 

Synopsis: “A Place of Healing” Vannetta Chapman
Emma discovers a run-away teen in her barn, and the bishop asks her to provide a haven for a woman and her two children. Then her mother-in-law reveals a secret about her garden. Will Emma choose loneliness or learn to accept God’s gifts?
“Flowers for Rachael” Kathleen Fuller
Rachael’s garden is beautiful, but she is lonely. Gideon is in love with Rachael, but when Rachael finds her garden in shambles after a crisis, she rejects his help. Will she realize she doesn’t have to do everything on her own?
“Seeds of Love” Tricia Goyer
When a corporation shows interest in buying Sadie’s heirloom seeds, she panics. They are all she has left of her Dat and Mem. Eli believes he can help Sadie, but a misunderstanding leaves her heartbroken. Will she trust him again, and will the seeds of a new relationship take root?
“Planting a Future” Beth Wiseman
Rosemary is doing her best to run her family’s household. She excels at all her tasks except one: gardening. Saul has been interested in her for years, but Rosemary has turned him down repeatedly. Saul begins helping with her family’s garden, but someone is sabotaging his efforts—and keeping a secret that could change their lives.

My review: I enjoyed this book with all four stories from four great authors. I think it is fun to read each of these stories with a "gardening" theme. Each of these stories contained their own message as you work your way through the book. To me this book read pretty quickly since it was four stories all rolled into one book. You can read one story or all four as they are good stand alone stories well. Another thing I liked about these stories is that they were about young people working through a problem. A good book to read on a rainy day.
