Building a Future | Amos Wyse & Laura J. Marshall

 

 

Today I am reviewing Building a Future, the fifth and final story in The Fishers:  An Amish Life series by Amos Wyse and Laura J. Marshall.

Here is a brief synopsis:

After wedding season excitement, the couples settle down to the challenges of newly married life.

While the households are being set up, Ruby has concerns, and Naomi feels some growing pains of her own.

——
The Fishers: An Amish Life includes five stories:
Book 1  Planting Seeds
Book 2  Pulling Weeds
Book 3  A Harvest of Brides
Book 4  Forging Friendships
Book 5  Building a Future

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Caleb and Ruby are happily married, as well as his sisters, Emma, who is wed to Peter Miller, and Lizzie, who is wed to John Beiler.

Married life can be wonderful; however, couples are not without their difficulties. While Caleb and Ruby discover a problem of their own, Naomi lies to protect the reputation of a young man, but it turns around on her and could prove difficult to overcome.

Don’t miss this great story about family, friends, and life in Burnsville, PA.

If you enjoy reading Amish fiction, you’ll love the stories about The Fishers. . .

Happy Reading!

Forging Friendships | Amos Wyse & Laura J. Marshall

 

 

Today I am reviewing Forging Friendships, the fourth story in The Fishers:  An Amish Life series by Amos Wyse and Laura J. Marshall.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Sometimes the best way to see where we’re headed is to consider where we have been.

This is the story of Otto Lapp and how God uses imperfect men in His perfect plan.

Book 5  Building a Future

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Oh cool!

This is the story of Amos Lapp, who lived near the Fishers before Samuel King bought the place.

I was always a bit curious about how it happened — and now I know.

This was a great story and it was nice reading about Otto Lapp, as well as catching up on the Fisher’s past and learning a bit more about the King family, too!

Happy Reading!

A Harvest of Brides | Amos Wyse & Laura J. Marshall

 

 

Today I am reviewing A Harvest of Brides, the third story in The Fishers:  An Amish Life series by Amos Wyse and Laura J. Marshall.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Caleb and Ruby’s big day is approaching quickly.

However, this courting season, his sisters’ find that their path towards marriage is not so smooth.

MY THOUGHTS:

Somebody is getting married!!!

In book one, Planting Seeds, Caleb Fisher meets, and eventually woos, Ruby Stolzfus. In book two, Pulling Weeds, Caleb’s twin sisters find their own gentleman callers.

Now the Fishers are planning not one, but three weddings! Isn’t that exciting!

This calls for lots and lots of celery, which is used for cooking as well as for decoration. And more food to be prepared than many of us see in an entire month. Because Amish weddings are big.

BIG.

HUGE.

Don’t miss this great story about family, friends, and weddings in Burnsville, PA.

Happy Reading!

Pulling Weeds | Amos Wyse & Laura J. Marshall

 

 

Today I am reviewing Pulling Weeds, the second story in The Fishers:  An Amish Life series by Amos Wyse and Laura J. Marshall.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Caleb Fisher’s “interchangeable” twin sisters, Emma and Lizzie, are up to their old tricks. When their prank backfires in the worst possible way, can Caleb sort out his sisters and their suitors?

——

Book 2  Pulling Weeds
Book 3  A Harvest of Brides
Book 4  Forging Friendships
Book 5  Building a Future

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I loved reading about Lizzie and Emma Fisher and their “twin” antics. . . identical twins enjoy fooling family members, friends, and others in the community. And when they meet a couple of boys at the youth meeting and find that they’re not as suitable as they hoped, they inadvertently switch places — and find that they’re delighted at the change.

These are such fun stories, you will be entertained from the first one to the very last.  I know I was.

Let me encourage you to try these stories.  You won’t be disappointed. . .

Happy Reading!

COMING SOON… JC Morrows

I have some exciting news to share!

 

First, I have the distinct pleasure of sharing some exciting information about the first book in JC’s upcoming urban fantasy series…

Book 1 of the Andarii Chronicles

TAKEN

   

From the back cover:

 

This is not a story you want to miss; this book, or any book of this series. It’s a story that spans galaxies, involves multiple peoples, and it will reveal a destiny that no one saw coming.

No prophecy brought her here. No ancient oracle foretold her coming. No ancient tablet spoke about the role she is destined to fill. But life and fate brought her where she needs to be to save more than one planet.

 

While we wait for more information, please add this book to your GOODREADS shelf!

 

 

 

And JC has graciously agreed to share with you some hints about other projects, upcoming series, and works-in-process. . .

 

Also slated to release in 2018 is a story about an alien and the one she is connected to. You may have seen updates during November. JC did not win NaNoWriMo this year, but she did get a good start on LINKED – book 1 of the NEW Across the Void series.

She is also busily working on a time travel story, a dragon series and she is co-authoring a story with her daughter Macy.

Exciting things coming.

 

Thank You!
Blessings!
