A Marriage of the Heart



Three Amish Novellas
Kelly Long
2009, 2010, 2011
Thomas Nelson
Fiction/Christian/Romance

Three previously published novels republished in this compilation, and retitled.  I was hoping for new stories, so I was disappointed, in the fact that these were re-published stories.  I love Kelly's writing, so nothing was wrong with the stories, I just was disappointed in the fact that it was a re-publish.
My original reviews are available here on my blog, and each book was given at least 4 stars.  Which is the rating I give this compilation.  This book was provided by review purposes, no payment was received for this review.

From the resource page:
Three Stories That Share the Adventures of First Love and Second Chances.
A Perfect Secret—Rose Bender’s betrothed, Luke Lantz, is safe and dependable, maybe a little too much so. Or so she thinks until she sees him in the woods one night and discovers a secret he’s been keeping. Now his secret haunts her. She wasn’t sure about marrying a man she knew too well. But should she marry a man she doesn’t understand at all?
Christmas Cradles—When Anna Stolis takes over for her aunt, the local midwife, Christmas night heats up with multiple deliveries, three strangers’ quilts, and unexpected help from the handsome and brooding Asa Lapp.
A Marriage of the Heart—Since her mother’s death, Abigail Kauffman has lived alone with her father. She longs to escape the emptiness of the farmhouse that has never felt like home. Joseph Lambert is a newcomer in their close-knit community. Only after suddenly marrying do they begin to understand the tender truths of life-long love.
