Amish Homecoming the proposal - Samantha Bayarr

Amish Homecoming, The Proposal, is a heartwarming book written by Samantha Bayarr.  This book deals with love, faith, and grief. The author has written a story that keeps you reading to see what happens next. The main focus of this story is the proposal which may have you wondering what is going on. This is a very enjoyal read for those who love and understand the Amish genre.

 

 

The characters appear real and they are likeable. I do admit there were a few characters which I wondered what they could be thinking. Lila is a wonderful young Amish woman who is dealing with the loss of her sister. Before she has a chance to deal with her grief a proposal is made and Lila is sent in a downward spiral. When Lila meets Ben Mast she knows what she has to do. I found Lila a loving, strongwilled young lady who knows what she wants out of life.

 

 

I was not given a complimentary copy of this book to read and review.  I was not approached by anyone to post a favorable review.  I have rated this book with five stars because it has meant my expectations of a wonderful story that I can highly recommend to anyone. 

 

Congratulations to Samantha Bayarr for writing this fantastic story. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

Hope for the Hopeless
The Hope Jar - Wanda E. Brunstetter

The English and Amish world coalesce in Wanda Brunstetter’s “The Hope Jar”, book one of The Prayer Jars trilogy. A case of mistaken identity thrusts an English girl with a broken past into the peaceful life of the Amish and opens the door to a deception that only grows with each passing day. A thread of romance adds to the intrigue and speculation about what will happen and how things will ultimately turn out. The unique array of characters enriches the story, with both English and Amish alike who are unhappy with their current situations and the direction their lives are taking. These multiple viewpoints allow the reader to easily understand aspects of Amish life with which they may not be familiar, including words in Pennsylvania Dutch, as well as the particular challenges the Amish face in today’s society.

While this novel is set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the Amish communities of Berlin and Sugarcreek, Ohio are about an hour and a half from where I live, and I have always enjoyed visiting there. I’ve always been a country girl, and the simple life appeals to me. I love how “The Hope Jar” presents Amish life through the eyes of a young English woman because that makes it all the more relatable and comprehendible. Including the perspective of other characters, some of them Amish, really gives interesting insight and makes for a well-rounded, wholesome reading and learning experience for both adults and young adults.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

Review: The Hope Jar
The Hope Jar - Wanda E. Brunstetter

Wanda does it once again with her latest book. Ever wonder what would happen if you mistaking though someone was your relative or grandchild by think that the person got the same hair color as your daughter?

That person goes along with it by pretending to be someone they are not. Well, that is kinda what goes on in this book. Can you fault the person that was asked, if you are acting as that person even though you are not them?

Well, the Lapps do this when they get a letter from their granddaughter Sara and hurry to pick her up at the bus station that day which is July 5th. Not knowing what she looks like or if she is even coming that day.

Michelle is asked if she is Sara Murray? She goes along with them. She never really says their granddaughter or not. We know she wants to stay away from Jerry and his abuse.

As she stays with them, she learns about the Amish culture and a little bit about the Lapps. She meets the family. She is asked questions by the Lapps. She too has questions. 

We Eli as well. He seems fond of Michelle. Does he not know if he wants to stay Amish or go English? What will he decide? He comes to help Michelle (Sara), and Lapps. He comes over to the Lapps to see Michelle (Sara). 

How does it end? Do we meet the real Sara? You will have to pick up a copy to read to find out.

Finding Amish, Grace Given

I enjoyed this clean, short, Amish Romance. The heroine in this book was unconventional in many ways and her hero, her husband is getting used to her ways. I voluntarily chose to review this book and gave it a 4.5* rating. And I look forward to many more of this author's stories. This is also the 3rd story in the Pure Read Clean Reads Bundle Set Vol 2.

Review: A Widow's Hope
A Widow's Hope - Vannetta Chapman

Ever feel like god let you down? Well Hannah seem to think this a little bit when a tragedy take away her husband and her son ability to walk. Hannah not only has to deal with her loss but also her son’s disability.

 

It really like the way Vanetta Chapman did this. Not a lot of books talk and deal with disability including the Amish. I really do like that. We see how it is with Hannah and we go along for a ride with Hannah as she learn to deal with the emotionally and physical disability.

 

We see that Amish got to deal with the same problems as those that were Englishers. You should be able to fall back and see the that family and friends will be there to help. We also meet Jacob. Will there be love once again for Hannah and Jacob?

 

Jakob has to deal with tragedy of his own and his own scars. Will he realise that god loves him as he is. The scars and what he was doing is not his fault. He not only have to deal with his loss and mistakes but leaning on family may help. He seems to hide himself from others. Will Hannah and her son help him find love along with Hannah.
