An Amish Heirloom, a four novella collection, featuring Kelly Irvin

Another Amish Novella collection. This one features short novels loosely linked by the theme of heirlooms–such as a special quilt, a cedar chest, a book, etc.  Kelly Irvin’s contribution was as excellent as ever, and she’s the reason I reviewed this book. As you know, I am not a particular fan or consumer of Amish […]

Beneath the Summer Sun, by Kelly Irvin

For example, in this book, readers learn more about the differences between Amish and Mennonite, and how the Amish […]

An Amish Christmas Love (a four-author collection)

She brings it, warts and all. Also, she […]

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 […]

The Saddle Maker’s Son, by Kelly Irvin

Susan here, with another review of the latest book from Kelly Irvin. She’s, in my opinion, the best writer of Amish fiction that I have come across. From her unusual plots, to her sensitive and realistic portrayals of the Amish life, Kelly Irvin hits many high notes with her plots, characters, and setting. This time […]
