A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long book review!

I love to read romance novels, and I never really read Amish romances, but I I have read a few, and I liked them, so I figured I would read this one too. This book contains 3 Amish Novellas that were previously published in other books. In "A Perfect Secret" we learn that people are not always what they seem, even when they are our betrothed. the second story "Christmas Cradles" reminds us why Christ is included in the word Christmas, and the miracles that happen on Christmas because of our faith. Lastly "A Marriage of the Heart" reminds us that everything happens for a reason, and that God has a plan for us, even though we think we are acting on our own.
Even though the three stories do not share characters they are brought together by Amish ways and religious beliefs. There are definitely underlying themes that are shared in all three stories.
I was happy that there was a Pennsylvania Dutch Glossary included in the beginning of the book, Some words are obvious, some meanings were not.  I also enjoyed the reading group guides, it got me thinking more about the book, and I find that it helps me remember the stories better. Most of all I enjoyed the recipes! The cookies were very yummy.
All in all the stories were well written, fun to read and kept me interested!
I was given a copy of this book for the purpose of this review, but all opinions are my own :)
