3.0 out of 5 stars Not amish 24 Jan 2012
By Dipsy
Format:Kindle Edition
I was expecting a romance set in the Amish community, but there was absolutely no Amish content to the story whatsoever. It is a simple romance story, but has no twists or turns to make the plot more interesting. High Christian content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgot to mention in my other reviews of this author's books but.... 17 May 2011

I really enjoyed the fact that there is a strong religious theme behind each of these books. I have always loved romance novels and such but have never had a Christian romance novel hit me as strongly as these do! Usually the Christian romance books are watered down but in this as well as the other books there is just a very strong religious and moral background. We need to get our kids reading these!

2.0 out of 5 stars Milk Maid in Heaven or Maybe not? 12 Jun 2011
By Leafs and Bounds - Published on
When I decide to enter a contest on goodreads the book has to meet my criteria: a good synopsis, and a genre I read. So when I won this book on goodreads I was pretty excited, a romance novel that sounded great, but I was soon disappointed.

This is a difficult book for me to review, I don't want to say I didn't like it, but I'm really not sure how I feel about it. First I would not consider 'Milk Maid in Heaven' a romance novella. Instead I would classify it as a Christian Romance novella. Originally I thought the main character was just a spiritual person finding God while he was in prison, but as the book progressed it became clear that Christianity was a prominent part of this story with scenes of prayer and divine intervention. In the past I have attempted to read Christian fiction to no avail, the only exception for 'Milk Maid in Heaven' is that I finished it, something I wouldn't have done had I not have won it.

The author's writing style, the dairy farm theme, or the prisoners work release program gave me the perception that this story took place many years ago (I envisioned the 1940's) but with the mention of milking machines and the internet I was taken back. I think a sub-titled timeline at the beginning could have really cleared up my confusion, as at times the story didn't read like it took place in modern day society.

While Bayarr did touch on Mitch's troubled childhood I would have liked to read a little bit more about it, and the same goes for Emily and her relationship with her Mom. I did however like the surprise component at the end. Overall, if you're looking for a wholesome read, or books with a strong Christian presence, read 'Milk Maid in Heaven,' but if you don't like books centered around this theme then this one's not for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs a lighter touch 27 May 2012
By KKJ - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title of this Kindle freebie caught my eye, and the blurb was intriguing, so I was willing to give it a chance. I wound up fast-forwarding through most of it because the writing style was soooo earnest and heavy-handed.

The plot and characters were likeable, and the premise is great, but there was no subtlety in the dialogue or descriptions. I'd much rather be SHOWN the growing relationship between the hero and heroine, not hit over the head with it.

The hero's Tragic Past backstory was info-dumped in a single scene in the first chapter, which really strained the credulity for me. I was also put off by the letters/e-mails between the heroine and her BFF - they were overly long, and while I don't mind a little preachiness in an inspirational, these exchanges seemed more like sermons.

I think there's a lot of potential here, and with the help of a good editor, the author could probably learn to get her message across with a lighter touch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable But Sweet 4 Oct 2011

Milk Maid in Heaven by Samantha Jillian Bayarr

Milk Maid in Heaven is a novella by Samantha Jillian Bayarr which is about Emily, a farmer's daughter whose father has become very ill. Emily is trying to finish up college but her father's illness is keeping him from being able to run his dairy farm effectively.

While helping her father out, Emily meets Mitch, a prisoner on work release who has been working on her father's farm for several years. Her father has chosen to trust him with a lot of privileges on the farm. Pretty quickly after meeting there is something undeniable between Emily and Mitch, but how could that possibly work?

As it turns out, Emily's father wants to leave Mitch in charge when he dies, which causes her to rethink his motives. Is Mitch just trying to take advantage of her older, frail father?

But Mitch is torn: this is not his father, the farm should not become his, and not to mention he is just not good enough for Emily, no matter what his feelings may be. Though he has turned his life around and found Christ since his criminal days and become a new man...

Will their mutual faith in God be enough to bring Emily and Mitch together? Or is the fact of the matter that God has a different plans for each of them, and they don't belong together?

Read Milk Maid in Heaven to find out!

While it is a short and sweet novella, it is utterly predictable. I found it hard to get a deeper feeling for who Emily and Mitch were.

Beyond that, it may be that I just have a hard time with "love at first sight" but I found their relationship SO quick that it was too quick.

But, it is the story of a couple with faith in God who listen to Him when they don't know what road to take and trust his guidance.

3 out of 5 stars.
