About the Book: Book One in the Amish Wonders series.
How far can God's mercy reach?
Lindie Wyse is pregnant out of wedlock and thinks an arranged marriage is the only way to preserve her future. 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. Will their growing love survive despite their struggles, or will their hearts become as cold as the northern winter?
My Review: This book was surprisingly good. Not that I thought it wouldn't be good but it was a different kind of Amish book (I'm reading many these days). I felt more as if I were in a different time and place than in the Amish community.
Oh poor Lindie. I wanted to cry with her many times. Give her a hug and tell her how strong she was. Her relationship with the family was so delicate at times. What a rough road.
Hannah's special gift, I thought, was kind of not necessary for this story even though it was worked in towards the end.
This was a very good book. A page turner that I did not want to put down. I haven't read any books by Ruth Reid before but if they're like this she'll be on my favorites list.
Expect some heartbreaking moments but, and this is why we like fiction, it all works out in the end.
