I enjoyed this collection of short stories centered on a growing family ! It is great to see that whether Amish or English we all strive for the same goal--that of the Lord being the center and glorified in our families and homes ! God bless all who brought this book to life! 🍼
I like the gentleness of Amish books when I need to step back from a busy life. But I found these somewhat silly. There was compassion for the situations, but the stories did not ring as true as many others I have read. Many might like these, and they are worth a try. I found the push toward modern bottle feeding, and some other things did not ring true. I think the authors put too much of themselves and not quite enough of the culture in these stories.
The narrator was not bad, but I've liked others better. She has a warm voice so I think it's more apersonal choice.
