Christian Chapters – Sabina: A Story of the Amish by Helen R. Martin
4.5 of 5 Hearts. Engrossing Amish Fiction From Another Era.
Several of Helen Martin’s works were turned into movies or plays, which speaks well of her talent and popularity. Therefore, it’s not surprising that Sabina: A Story of the Amish is an entertaining novel, written by a hand skilled at turning out likeable, realistic characters. For the reader of today, it is an historical novel, illuminating the Amish world as it existed at the time of its writing at the turn of the 20th century. In comparing it to modern fiction about the Amish, it’s interesting to find how little things have changed in their world, and to wonder how thin the line is between tradition and stagnation. Fans of Amish fiction ought
to include at least one of Martin’s books in their reading;
Sabina makes an excellent choice.
Christian Chapters – An Amish Christmas Gift: Three Novellas by Various Authors
5 of 5 Hearts. As Comforting as a Hot Cup of Cocoa on a Winter’s Eve.
An Amish Christmas Gift is a good introduction to Amish Fiction and a wonderful way to get your Christmas spirit on! Amy Clipston, Ruth Reid, and Kelly Irvin use their pens to point out that love sometimes works in mysterious ways, so we should trust that God, in His timing, has someone special for us. For even when we are convinced we’ll never find it, love finds us.
That’s everything that happened on ReadLove this week. See you next week!
Until then, I’d love it if you shared a bit about your week in the comments!
