The Kissing Bridge (Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors) by Tricia Goyer

The Kissing Bridge

Reviewed by Jane Squires

A story of faith. Rebekah lost a sister and felt called to leave the Amish community to pursue nursing. She felt a call to help others so they would not have to die like her sister while she stood by helpless. She stops in Montana to see a friend who had left the Amish community. There Amish and English lived together in a community.

She meets Caleb, a risk taker. He wants an Amish wife but one with spunk. Both Rebecca and Caleb find faith in God. This book was what I needed right now as I struggle with God’s plans at this point in my life.

An Amish Garden by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Tricia Goyer, and Vannetta Chapman

An Amish Garden

Reviewed by Jane Squires

Written by four authors – four stories. I love and have read all four authors and reviewed books for all of them.

All stories involve gardens. Each has a different message. In Rooted in Love, I felt love was endured until it was time for God’s plan. In Flowers for Rachel, Rachel had a hard time accepting help. Gideon had a hard time expressing himself as a lot of men do around women. In Seeds of Love, it is about giving to others even if different from you and the giving will return to you. In When Healing Blooms, there is lots of healing to be done. Grief, women and kids needing a safe place, runaway boy, and a ministry started.
