I have previously read three of the four authors but Kathleen Fuller was a new author to me. I can only say good things about each of these stories and the writing skill of each of the authors.
Beth Wiseman handled the story of the abused wife with gentleness and realism. The gentle Brock is the picture of kindness and strength of character. And then in Kathleen Fuller's story we have the opportunity to read how two flawed individuals try to cope with their differences or handicaps and how they eventually find a way to love. These are two difficult social issues beautifully written about by these two skilled authors.
I love how Vannetta Chapman writes grace and faith into her stories and touches a bit on romance and a bit on mystery. In Mischief in the Autumn Air these two late middle agers, who are single (widow and widower), find themselves pursuing puzzling folks who attend the auction and mysterious clues.
And Amy Clipston's Love and Buggy Rides is a sweet story of finding love even though there is an age difference and other obstacles in their relationsip. Again, a sweet Amish romance.
About the book: Faith, hope, and love remain forever in season in this collection of four richly absorbing novellas set amidst the wonder of an Amish autumn.
Under the Harvest Moon, by Beth WisemanWhen Naomi Dienner is suddenly widowed, she never expects to find love again . . . until she meets Brock Mulligan, an English family friend hired at harvest time.

Will God open Naomi’s heart—and give Brock his own second chance at love?
