Tiny fingers, tiny toes...and lives that will never be the same. Journey with four families whose lives are about to change forever.

"A Son for Always" by Amy Clipston: Carolyn and her husband, Joshua, are thrilled to be pregnant with their first child. A teenager when she had her son, Benjamin, Carolyn still feels obligated to work to secure Ben's future even though Josh adopted him. She struggles to realize that Josh will love and protect both of their children equally.

"A Heart Full of Love" by Kathleen Fuller: Ellie's mother loves to meddle in her personal life--especially now that Ellie's pregnant. Since Ellie is blind, her mother worries she won't be able to handle the baby. When Ellie gives birth to twins, her mother insists on moving in. Just as everyone reaches the breaking point, a miracle draws them closer to each other and to God.

"An Unexpected Blessing" by Vannetta Chapman: At 42 Etta thought her time of having children was over, but she's pregnant again.

Skip Amy clipston- other stories are great

I suppose it could be partially due to narration but I don't think so. I think it is her writing style. Amy clipston writes like she thinks her readers are stupid. I really enjoyed the other stories

Sweet Amish Stories

I did not find these stories boring or dry as some other reviewers have commented. In fact, each story had me tearing up at each‘ s sweet, but predictable ending. However, I did find some of the information a little far fetched compared to other Amish stories I have read. I am by no means an Amish expert, but an Amish abortion? Are you kidding???

Hard to read

Somewhat dry and boring. The first book was the better of the four. The second was painfully slow and boring. Not the best Amish fiction I have read.

Boring!😕

I was disappointed that there was not much to the stories. They do not keep your attention.

Okay, but a bit melodramatic

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.
