What The Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller

Together for the first time, three Amish romances from Kathleen Fuller.
"A Miracle for Miriam" from An Amish Christmas
Miriam fell for Seth, but he broke her heart. Years later, after he's nearly killed in an accident, Miriam sees him at a Christmas party and notices something is different about him-not just how he looks, but how he acts. When Seth pursues her, she must decide whether to guard her heart or accept his love.
"A Place of His Own" from An Amish Gathering
When Josiah left Paradise the first time, he didn't even say good-bye. Now he's back, ten years later, and he's changed. Why is he so distant and bitter? Where is the boy who used to be Amanda's best friend? Amanda is learning that there are things even a capable Amish girl can't fix. But can she stand there and watch him walk away...again?
"What the Heart Sees" from An Amish Love
A tragic accident rocks a peaceful Amish community, leaving Ellie Chupp blinded and Christopher Bender's future shattered. But they find love and forgiveness in a place they least expect.

The Review:
My Ranking: 7 out of 10
Ages: 13 & up

The three-in-one Amish romance novel titled What The Heart Sees after one of the three stories within it was a pleasant read which I enjoyed. I found each of the three stories sweet and enjoyed each of them, though A Place Of His Own was my favorite and I wish it was a full length book - it would have made it a stronger, less rushed story! But, I still was able to enjoy it.

As I already said, A Place Of His Own was my favorite of the three. I enjoyed reading about Amanda and Josiah and entering both of their lives. Like I said, I would have liked this story more if it was a full length. I felt a lot of character could have been added and that it was too rushed. But, I was still able to enjoy it.

Another one I found pleasure in reading was What The Heart Sees. For some strange reason, I always love reading stories where the hero or heroine is blind - I'm not really sure why. Being it that ___ is blind, I enjoyed this story twice as much. Once again, it was one that I thought should be it's own book - but it was still a good, sweet read!

Last but not least is A Miracle For Miriam. This was the one story that I found to be the perfect length. I found Seth's a Miriam's relationship sweet, and while I didn't enjoy this short story as much as the other two I still found it a good story and worth the time.

In the whole book there's not much to mention content wise, aside from a few brief kisses and the occasional reference to a man longing or desiring a certain woman he fancies.

All around, this book was worth the time reading and I recommend it to anyone who loves sweet Amish romance stories.
Look forward to this books release on March 8th of 2011!
