A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long

This is a collection of three Amish stand alone books by the author.

In “A Perfect Secret” Luke and Rose set to marry but do they know each other? Luke has a secret; can he keep Rose from finding out the truth? Can Rose love him during this difficult time?

In “Christmas Cradles” midwife Anna has three potential babies to deliver on Christmas. Anna is helping her Aunt while she is away on vacation. Asa is to be her driver if someone goes into labor. Asa and Anna are single and past the typical marriage age for Amish young people. Asa and Anna seem to be drawn to each other. Will Anna’s self-reliance get in the way? Will Asa’s past keep him from wanting a future with Anna?

In “A Marriage of the Heart” Abigail hoodwinks Joseph into marriage. Her deceit gets her into a hasty marriage. Can Abigail and Joseph find love for each other? Abigail is looking for a way out of Amish life and thinks Joseph is too. At one time Joseph had a problem with addiction to pills. Will this ruin their marriage? Can they come to love one another?

I like that the author has included some Amish recipes in the back of the book. Each book has a reading group guide. I found the novellas easy to read and entertaining.

I am pleased to give this collection a four star rating.
