I have been interested in Amish Novels since reading my first Amish book by Beverly Lewis. Since that time, I have read many books concerning Amish main characters , and none of them have been a disappointment. Sarah’s Garden (A Patch of Heaven Novel), by Kelley Long is another book which delivers the same quality storyline as that of other authors who choose to focus on storylines concerning Amish characters.
Throughout the book, Sarah, a very shy girl, who is tasked with running her family’s produce stand, faces many difficulties. Throughout all of her struggles, she never loses her faith. I was completely interested in the romantic theme of the book, and I found myself drawn into Sarah and Grant’s relationship. Grant, the new neighbor who is a veterinarian, falls in love with Sarah and this serves as a very confusing situation for Sarah. Sarah could be shunned and forced to never see her family again if she pursues the relationship.
This was an extremely quick read...perfect for a summer afternoon by the pool! Although it was a little predictable, that is exactly what I expect when reading a romance novel such as this. I really enjoyed the English and Amish romance aspect, and I will definitely be reading the next books in this series.
