What The Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller

A collection of Amish romances.  These stories were previously published in An Amish Christmas, An Amish Gathering, and An Amish Love.

A Miracle For Miriam. Miriam was in eight grade but the huge crush she had on Seth Fisher went back two years. Since the sixth grade, she wished for his attention. Then a terrible act of cruelty committed on the playground left her utterly embarrassed. Five years have passed since then and Miriam has long since forgiven Seth but she is not ready to love him again, or is she?

A Place of His Own. Amanda and Josiah had been best friends during their childhood. Everything was perfect until the Bontrager's just up and left without telling a single soul, without Josiah giving Amanda a single goodbye. Amanda is twenty-four now and all grown up. Josiah suddenly pops back into her life. But he is not the same Josiah she once new. He is withdrawn and sullen. Amanda wants to mend his heart but more importantly can she win it?

What The Heart Sees. Ellie Chupp wasn't born disabled but a horrible accident left her that way. Chris Miller lost his fiancee in the same accident five years ago. Ellie has a secret and Chris is troubled and broken but the attraction between them is unmistakable. Both have vowed to never love again but will each break that vow and give love a fighting chance?

All three stories were beautiful. They resonate so deeply and touch your heart. What the Heart Sees is the second Kathleen Fuller book I have read. And I enjoyed both very much. The glossary is certainly a nice touch. It makes me feel like I'm learning a little German. I recommend this book to everyone! Yes, its romance but nowhere near the cheesy kind. I would say this book would definitely fit in during the holidays. They make you feel nice and cozy and lovable.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  1. All three stories sound really beautiful. I can find a little bit similarity though: people deciding never to love again after some heart-breaking event in their life. I would love this book if I get to read this.

  2. If all the blogs that I follow this is the first time that I have even seen an Amish Fiction review! (and by the way Amish Fiction is my favourite "feel good" genre!). I'm glad to see that you enjoyed this book - I saw it on Booksneeze and was wondering how it would be.

  3. This sounds like a great book. I find the Amish culture so fascinating and have read a couple of books that take place in an Amish setting. Thanks for sharing- I will check out these stories.

    Happy New Year!
