A bit about me . . . .
I was raised in a small town in Ohio. If you had blinked twice, you would've missed it. It's grown by leaps and bounds. I've always found the Amish life interesting. I've enjoyed the many times I've visited their communities and learned about their lifestyle. Creating historical Amish characters and throwing them into difficult situations and joyous times has been challenging and fun. The greatest reward I've experienced in becoming an author is meeting wonderful people from all over the world who've been encouraging and supportive.

Book Review by Bree Herron
I was eager to read these three novellas. I have enjoyed two out of the three authors before, and was excited to read the new author’s story. For the purpose of this review, I am focusing on Molly Jebber’s story Joshua’s Bride.
Molly Jebber created a unique family dynamic set in the 1880’s. I was eager to see if where the story would go,and it wasn’t a disappoint. Joshua’s family was hurt deeply by Madeline’s sister. Madeline is the girl, Joshua wants to marry. Sorry, spoiler! She is so sweet and darling, that I was all for Madeline throughout the story. I loved her patient and kind demeanor that she kept through it all. This was the point of the story, love is patient and love is kind.Love is healing in this novella story set in the 1880 Amish country! Click To Tweet
The point of the story was mentioned and the humming theme throughout the story. It ends the way a reader would like, and sometimes it takes a bit for families to heal. The heart maybe healed in different ways for everyone, and that was another point in this story. Love can heal, it just heals in different form.
I wished this wasn’t a short novella, and would love to see more historical Amish stories from Molly. It was interesting to read historical points that she made. I would love to read the story of Nathaniel and his healing heart.

I don’t normally read Amish fiction, either contemporary or historical! This does sound like an interesting collection, though.
