    "A Beautiful Patchwork of Characterization & Story"

    Review of Kelly’s Long Sarah’s Garden

    This was a beautiful story, well-written, and a solid romance. Sarah King loves her garden.
    When she finds herself falling in love with a physician who is not Amish she questions what she should do. This was my second listen for Kelly Long’s books and again I was impressed by the freshness in her writing and the passion in the romance. These characters are portrayed as real people with genuine emotions rather than the cookie cutter images seen in some of the Amish books.

    Listeners should keep in mind that this is an inspirational romance, the book originally published by Thomas Nelson. Lovely spiritual arc for both the hero and the heroine.

    Well done, Kelly!

    I love Christian fiction and cozy mysteries. I'm blind now, so I listen to all my books.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm loving the entire series. I enjoyed the courtship of Sarah and Grant. I also liked how the Amish community began to accept Grant, the Englisha vet. The visions of the gardens Sarah designed were delightful. The narrator also did an excellent job.

    "Great story"
    If you could sum up Sarah’s Garden in three words, what would they be?

    Great Amish fiction!

    I love Amish fiction and this one was really good. My world is so busy and crazy sometimes, that I have to get away. Since there is no time to literally get away, I do it through stories and books.

    My tastes in books tends to be rather eclectic and it just depends on my mood. If I have seen too much of the “world” with its selfishness and meanness I need a good Christian novel to remind me of who I am and what I believe in. The narrator was wonderful. Her voice was calming and the words written by the author were wise and truthful.

    Would I want to be Amish; I can honestly say no. But to know that there are Amish communities close by and that there are people that can ignore the temptations of this world and live a simple life, following the instructions of Christ is enough for me. Do I believe that all Amish live a life like the ones portrayed in Amish fiction; of course not. After all, no matter how anyone lives, we are all people cut from the same cloth and that cloth is not perfect or even good by any stretch of the imagination. But a book like this one takes me away from some of the ugliness of the world and helps to mend some of my wounds by restoring my faith in God and in his children.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The bishop. I really like the way he was portrayed and I love the fact that the author whether intentional or not gave him a little me a of "yoda" personality.


    What does Christine Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice. I loved it. She was able to give each of the characters a voice that as the reader I could believe same from that character.


    Who was the most memorable character of Sarah’s Garden and why?

    Sarah's father. He was wise and loving and the kind of father that every child would want.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Christian and Amish fiction, then listen to this audio book!

    "Loved this book!"

    There hasn't been many good new Amish books lately. Either the story is good and performance is bad or the other way around. This is an all around good book. I have listened to it twice. Awesome book!
