The Amish Cooking Class – The Seekers: Book 1 of Amish Cooking Class
Heidi Troyer is a young Amish wife who lives with her husband, Lyle. They have a good relationship and a happy home, although they disagree about how to handle their infertility. Heidi wants to adopt, but Lyle is dead set against it. Unwilling to go against her husband’s wishes, Heidi turns her attention to teaching Amish cooking classes out of their home. She doesn’t know what to expect from her class or students, but everyone is about to about to find out.
This is a sweet and simple story about an unlikely group of mostly non-Amish people who take Heidi’s cooking class. Each student has a different life situation and problem that ends up being resolved by the end of the series of classes. From deeply troubled drifter Ron to Kendra, an unmarried young woman who winds up pregnant, to a widow with two children and widower without, everyone enjoys learning to make great recipes and how to handle their different problems.
Some of the characterization is oversimplified and every character repeatedly “sure wishes” they could do something or other, but overall they’re likeable, and it’s a fun story for those who enjoy Amish fiction. An added bonus is six Amish recipes at the back of the book.
