“. . . [An Amish Garden] is a perfect selection of stories that will lift your heart, inspire your faith, and encourage your green thumb.” —CBA Retailers + Resources
“These four novellas have one thing in common: The storyline is centered on gardens the Amish rely on to feed their families and oftentimes to earn extra money. The stories don’t need to be read in order to enjoy each one to its fullest. Each author brings her uniqueness to her novella, and they blend well into a great read.” ---Romantic Times Magazine
