Amish Front Porch Stories, by Wanda, Jean and Richelle Brunstetter, is a wonderful collection of 18 very short stories that focus on faith and seeking wisdom. The short stories have main characters that are struggling with something in their life. The stories cover themes such as peace, love, joy, faith, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness, and temperance. A couple that I especially enjoyed are the faith a young girl has that her dog will return, a very talented quilter that learns to put aside her pride and neighbors showing love to those who do harm to them.
I enjoyed reading these stories, they are a nice length to just sit and read for a few minutes. The stories tell of the simple lives of the Amish and of the struggles that even they go through.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
