About the book: 

Book One in the Amish Wonders series.

How far can God's mercy reach?

Josiah Plank is certain he'll never love again, but he needs someone to care for his eight-year-old daughter, Hannah. The two take on their arrangement tentatively at first but soon realize they are each in for more than they imagined.

Lindie experiences a breakthrough with Hannah when she recognizes Hannah's special gifts, but a risky pregnancy and serious health issues threaten to demolish the foundation Josiah and Lindie are building.

My Thoughts

Eli Wyse has made arrangements with his widower friend Joshiah  to marry Eli's sister Lindie.  Lindie is pregnant and is not given a choice in the matter . When Josiah meets Lindie he offers her a way out even though he is in dire need of a helpmate.  His daughter Hannah is deaf and needs constant supervision because she tends to wander off into the woods.  He also makes it clear to Lindie he will not share his love with her.  So they decide to live together yet apart.

Lindie becomes very attached to Hannah. The child appears to be gifted by God. With all that needs to be done as a new wife and mother she begins having complications with her pregnancy.

As time goes by they can't stop their growing feelings from tuning into love and respect for each other.

Such heartache is evident within the these newly weds.  God works miracles in this family as they work through their trials and tribulations.  The author has written a heart wrenching tale building up the spirits of these characters having them learn to have faith and trust in each other through the intercession of God.  Yes it began as a heart wrenching tale and then turned into a heartwarming tale. It is not a fairy tale but a fictional account of a family given a chance for a new beginning.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group/Thomas Nelson for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review. This review is my honest opinion.
