About this Book


A Legacy of Love
by Amy Clipston
Local volunteer fire fighter Leon King agrees to repair his ex-girlfriend Susie Bontrager’s grandparents’ antique rocking chairs for her future home with her fiance and is forced to acknowledge that his feelings for her have not quite gone away. As Susie spends time with Leon, she begins to recognize she is marrying the wrong man for all the wrong reasons.

The Cedar Chest
by Beth Wiseman
Decades after inheriting her great grandmother’s cedar chest, Emma Fisher decides to pry it open only to discover a beautiful love story in the form of letters between her great grandparents. But as Emma immerses herself in their story, family secrets are revealed, and she must decide whether to share them to preserve family history or honor her great grandparents’ decision to leave them hidden. 

The Treasured Book
by Kathleen Fuller
For the past two years, Shane Broyles has felt God leading him to join the Amish. He’s staying with his friends Noah and Ivy Schlabach in Birch Creek, OH, where he is reunited with Lucy Fisher, an old friend of Noah’s family. Shane and Lucy have never revealed their feelings for each other, but when they stumble upon an antique Bible at a flea market, they feel drawn to each other and to the mystery of the contents found within.

The Midwife’s Dream
by Kelly Irvin
Iris Beachy serves as a midwife in her district where she longs for a family of her own. When her friend’s brother Mahon Kurtz seeks her help in delivering the baby of two young teenagers who have sought refuge in their town, they begin to see each other in a different light. Unprepared for parenthood, the young couple leave their baby girl behind in an antique crib quilt resembling the one destined for Iris when she becomes a mother. Mahon and Iris come together to take care of the baby as they try to find her parents, and they begin to see new possibilities for their future.

Get ready for a novella collection of four Amish Fiction stories in An Amish Heirloom.

First up is A Legacy of Love by Amy Clipston. This story features local volunteer firefighter, Leon King from Amy's Amish Homestead Series, which I absolutely love. In this story, Leon agrees to fix Susie's grandparents' antique rocking chairs for her future home with her fiance. The interesting spin on this story is that Susie is Leon's ex-girlfriend.

Next is The Cedar Chest by Beth Wiseman. This story is about a cedar chest that hasn't been opened in decades. Inside the chest are letters between Emma Fisher's great-grandparents. The letters reveal family secrets and Emma has to decide whether to share them or to preserve her family's history.

In The Treasured Book by Kathleen Fuller we meet Shane Broyles who has felt God leading him to join the Amish. Shane has been staying with Noah and Ivy Schlabach who are in her Amish Letters series. I loved traveling back to Birch Creek, especially with Aunt Cevilla trying to play matchmaker again.

The Midwife’s Dream by Kelly Irvin features Iris Beachy who serves as a midwife in her district. Iris hasn't had any children of her own. After delivering the baby of two young teenagers Iris finds herself unexpectedly caring for their baby.

Between connecting with new characters and revisiting ones I have come to love, this was a nice novella collection from some great Amish Fiction authors.
