My Review: A story full of hurt, struggle, and love. A good example of how finding the right person can change your outlook on life. Never give up on believing in love.

Although this is book 3 in the series it is able to be read as a stand-alone. All three books are good, clean Christian reads that can be read from teenager to great-grandmas. Religion is a strong theme but scripture and sermons are not heavy in the reading.

NetGalley: The perfect family awaits…if only he’ll risk his heart.

Pregnant and recently widowed, Grace Fisher is determined to provide for her family on her own. Thankfully, her jam business is popular in her Amish community. But it’s difficult keeping up with her work, her farm chores, and her two mischievous children. Especially now that they’ve taken to idolizing their neighbor Elijah. While the handsome farmer is kind and generous, he seems intent on holding Grace and her little ones at a distance…

Elijah Beiler has always admired his neighbor Grace. So standing by while she struggles to support her family isn’t an option. Offering to take over her farm duties, Elijah is determined to help while remaining detached. He knows all too well that love only leads to heartbreak. Yet the more time he spends with Grace and her children, the harder he finds it to leave each day. But can Elijah overcome past hurts and open his heart to this ready-made family?

Kyle left his hometown behind after a heartbreaking young romance and a devasting accident with no plans to ever return. When the local doctor asks him to take over his medical practice, Kyle feels the need to help. What Kyle did not expect was to fall in love with Leah. Leah is the Amish midwife who believes that holistic healing herbs and faith in God are the best healing medicines. Can Kyle and Leah overcome their differences to let love have a chance?

This book kept me up way past my bedtime more times than I can count. I also found myself ignoring everything that needed to be accomplished after work just so I could dive back into Kyle and Leah’s story. You cannot help but believe in love and the power of love when you read this story. I became a little weepy as I read because it was so tender.

I am also more interested in the holistic healing properties of organic herbal teas for chronic illness. I have found a new interest. Leah’s story was very convincing in how well they can work.

This is the second book in the Love and Promises series but each book can be read as a stand-alone. It is a beautiful Christian romance with no obscene sexual overtones or scenes, no foul language and not overly religious (meaning scripture verses on every page). I would feel comfortable giving this to a teen girl or my ninety-year-old grandmother to read.

Nine months ago Josiah was widowed with a young son, Nathan, who lost his hearing at age two. Josiah and Nathan have not been able to communicate effectively and Nathan’s behavior has gotten out of control. Josiah enrolls him into the newly opened Amish school for kids with special needs. There he meets teacher Ada who has her own troubles at home. When her mom died she became the sole care giver to seven younger brother and sisters. Can Ada help Nathan and the other special needs students and still be able to take care of her family?

I was thrilled to read this book since it was on a topic close to my heart, special needs students. I hoped to learn something from the book I could take to my own classroom and I did! The biggest help was learning more about patience which is something that does not always come easy to me. Patience is common sense but we all need a reminder on common sense at times. I was also reminded that what you see is not always what you think. You need to get the full story before making assumptions. I try to remember that when I see children acting up in stores and restaurants. That child may be special needs and we not even know it.

The love story between Josiah and Ada is very sweet. I found it very believable.

This is a clean read that I would let a teenager or my ninety year old Mamaw read. Pick up your copy today and have a relaxing weekend with Josiah and Ada.
