About Book

Rose Schrock is a Plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband’s debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose’s big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she’s even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.

My Thoughts

Rose Schrock carries the burdens left by her deceased husband.  She willingly takes on the responsible of his parents farm which includes the care of his mother.  Her mother-in-law had a stroke leaving her weak in body and mind.  Rose also her hands full with her four children especially the two youngest boys.  She feels it to be her responsibility to support the family and right the wrongs of her husband.  In order to accomplish this she has decided to turn the farm into a Bed and Breakfast. Surprisingly her neighbor, Galen King sees it to be a good idea and helps her to prepare the farm for her guest.

Her Bed and Breakfast becomes the means of not only financial needs but far more.  God had a plan for Rose Schrock and her family.  Rose put her faith in God to pull them through the trials and tribulations that came her way. 

This story kept me thinking about Job and how he always stayed faithful to God through his trials and tribulations.  The author writes a story that will tug at your heart.  She wrote of how events can cause stress on so many people.  It's like being in the path of a tornado.  Many can find blessings  in time such as these just as Rose Schrock found laughter with her children, tenderness and patience for her mother-in-law.  She even dared to hope for love with Galen King, her neighbor. 

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out 5.
