When you want to read a piece of “Amish fiction”, you can’t go wrong by picking up a novel by Kelly Irvin. Swiftly gaining the pinnacle of this popular genre, Irvin consistently delivers an excellent, page-turning, can’t put it down read.
Upon a Spring Breeze is no exception. How conflicted one would be if our husband was killed while we were pregnant? Young, confused, and devastated, Bess must suffer the loss of her “mann” and the pains of pregnancy alone.
Enter the source of the romance: her husband’s best friend. In fact, on of her own childhood playmates – a man who’d long loved her, but had nobly stepped aside while her husband Caleb courted and won her.
The simple life of the Amish provides a stark contrast to the complicated emotions that Irvin brings to the page.
