Book Reivew: What the Heart Sees

What the Heart Sees: A Collection of Amish Romances
What the Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller is a collection of 3 Amish romances. Which include, A Miracle for Miriam, A Place of His Own, and What the Heart Sees.

A Miracle for Miriam
Miriam is at an marriageable age, yet she doesn't seem to interact all that well with the other young adults her age, that is until she meets up with Seth.  Seth is one who has left Miriam with bad memories after tormenting her in school many years ago, will it take a miracle for Miriam to forgive him?

You'll have fun reading this stories and it just may bring back memories of your younger days...did you have a tormentor?

A Place of His Own
Josiah is the main character in this story, he has been gone from the Amish community for quite some time, and when his childhood friend and neighbor, Amanda, learns he has returned she is overjoyed.  Overjoyed until she spends some time with Josiah.  He has changed and he's not the friend she remembers, but as curious as Amanda is, will she be happy when Josiah's truth is revealed, and what will it take to soften his heart?

This is a story that will make you hope, hope for love and happiness, you will fall in love with Amanda, she has such a cheery soul.

What the Heart Sees
This is  a story that will make you realize that sometimes your heart and your head do not always see eye to eye.  Ellie has been blinded in an awful accident, who is going to love her now that she can't see?  I imagine that is a question a young woman would ask herself, but just because she is blind does not mean she is unlovable.  Christopher also lost something in the same accident that Ellie lost her sight and has been forced to move away, when he returns to Paradise things don't always go smoothly as Christopher and Ellie face their past and their healing.

A heartbreaking story, but one that will make you fall in love with the characters, it is a story of forgiveness and love.

With just over 400 pages in this book, each story is a very quick read, I actually was surprised when I finished A Miracle for Miriam, I couldn't believe how quickly the story went.  While the three of these stories are fairly predictable Amish romances, they are still enjoyable for a lazy day read.  It doesn't seem to matter how many different Amish books I read, I always learn something new, and Kathleen Fuller didn't disappoint me as I once again traveled through the lives of different Amish couples.
