Each of the four novellas from these veterans of Amish fiction is set in an Amish community at autumn harvest time. Wiseman's entry features a young mother with two small children who hides a secret to protect her dead husband's good name. In Clipston's story, a witness to an accident is forbidden by her family to come forward with the truth. An introvert finds her shyness nearly unbearable after developing a stutter in Fuller's tale. And in Chapman's story, a widow, forced to live with a crotchety aunt, buries herself in mystery stories until she finds herself on an unexpected real-life quest. The transition and renewal inspired by the autumn harvest underpin each of the tales; the characters, towns, and situations are all distinct and relatable. Each of the stories contains a dire or trying circumstance that allows new paths of friendship and love to grow.
