A Sweet Amish Romance, But Depressing at Times

Quick Take
Yoder Family Amish Restaurant is a sweet Amish romance, if not depressing and rushed at times.  Becca Fisher writes with knowledge of the Amish community, and Dorothy Deavers brings a calming tone to the audiobook.

Tell Me More
Upon first listening to the audiobook of Yoder Family Amish Restaurant on Audible, I fell in love with Dorothy Deaver's voice.  Her presence perfectly complimented Becca Fisher's quaint story, and the audiobook created a calming experience for me.  I enjoyed Deaver's voices that she gave to each of Fisher's characters, and it felt as though the story was being painted in front of me as I listened.  

Sadie Zook, the protagonist of Yoder Family Amish Restaurant, is a humble, sweet woman whom I immediately felt drawn to.  The story focuses on her love life, and how she is reeling from heartbreak with a man she was dating who fell in love with someone else and chose to leave her.  My heart broke for Sadie as I listened and empathized with her story.

Sadie is a waitress at an Amish restaurant, and the story is heavily focused on her coworkers and the patrons who frequent the restaurant.  As Sadie's friends begin to fall in love, get married, and have children, she feels as though she is falling behind because she has not found a man with whom she would like to start a family.  However, Sadie finds purpose in her job at the Yoder Family Restaurant, and communion with her coworkers.  

Unfortunately, as I continued to listen to the story, I found Sadie to be a depressing character.  She is often forlorn, and every time something good seems to happen for her, it ends up going wrong.  For example, when Sadie finally finds a man to go on a date with, his ex-girlfriend reaches out to him on the day of his date with Sadie and proposes trying to have a relationship again.  Sadie also goes out for a promotion at the restaurant and ends up losing the position to one of her coworkers with whom she doesn't get along with.  When Sadie does begin dating one of her other coworkers towards the end of the novel, their romance took up only about the last fourth of the novel and it seemed rushed.  While I enjoyed the calming tone of Yoder Family Restaurant, I felt as though the depressing aspects of the novel were too drawn out whereas the inspiring sections were not given enough time.  

Nevertheless, the audiobook of Yoder Family Amish Restaurant provides a calming listening experience with a clear look at the Amish community.  Even though the novel did have more of a sorrowful tone, I did enjoy learning more about the young Amish community and experiencing the simple life.  Becca Fisher writes with knowledge and empathy of the Amish community, and I look forward to listening to more of her audiobooks.

So So Story, Horrible Narration

As a rule, I enjoy Amish Romance, this was an exception. The narrator sounded like she smoked three packs of cigarettes a day. Her voice distracted me so much, that I never could get into the book.

Yoder Family Amish Restaurant

Sadie had her heart broken. She tries to make the best of it and continues to work as a server at the restaurant. When the possibility of love comes along, it puts Sadie in a tough spot. Will she get her happily ever after?

Dorothy Deavers’ performance coupled with Becca Fisher’s writing led to a very enjoyable listen.

Enjoyable read

Yoder Family Amish Restaurant (Amish Romance), my second read from Christian author Becca Fisher. If there's a problem with this book it’s that it's so short, you want stories/books longer so you can enjoy them for a longer time. This said I have to say that the author packed a lot into the pages of this short romance. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reading & reviewing it. Dorothy Deavers’s narration adds to the book's enjoyment. I'll be reading more from this author. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

interesting story with wonderful narration

Dorothy Devaers does a wonderful job narrating. She is easy to listen to, and I look forward to listening to more books she has narrated. I enjoyed the story as well. The characters were consistent throughout. The one thing I didn't care for was when the main characters were deceitful about their relationship. I think that would not be typical Amish behavior. However, that will not keep me from reading other books by Becca Fisher.

Yoder Family Amish Restaurant

I found this to be more believable than 'If I Stayed'. The writing was better,but still needs editing by someone who knows Amish ways of speaking .The possibiities of owning a furniture shop and a bake stand fill the minds of 2 Amish young people working at a family run restaurant. They are not allowed to date co workers,so they have some decisions to make. Dorothy Deavers did a fine job narrating and sounding like the 'plain folk'.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

This is the story of love that does not work out and the consequences of life when it happens.

The narrator was good.
