Another great Amish story!

"What the Heart Sees" by Kathleen Fuller is actually three stories in one. Each story is also published in 3 different books, along with other Amish-fiction authors. If you have already read "An Amish Christmas", "An Amish Gathering", or "An Amish Love" then you will recognize the stories in this one. I had not, and I thoroughly enjoyed all three stories.

All three stories focus on forgiveness... forgiving one another, forgiving oneself, and accepting forgiveness from God.

In "A Miracle for Miriam", Miriam has to forgive Seth for causing her pain years before. And Seth learns to accept forgiveness from God and Miriam for the way he had acted growing up.

"A Place of His Own" tells the story of Josiah, a man who had problems in his childhood that even his closest friend knew nothing about. He comes home to Paradise to sell his family home and disappear again. But God has other plans.

Christopher learns a hard lesson in forgiveness and letting go of the past in "What the Heart Sees". Five years prior, he had lost his fiance in a car accident. Since then, he has remained bitter since the person responsible for the accident did not seem to suffer at all. He soon finds out more about the day of the accident that as never told before. Will he forgive and leave the past in the past?

I greatly recommend this book and look forward to reading more of Kathleen's books
