Genre: Christian Historical Amish Romance
Welcome back to the Amish community at Weaver’s Creek, where the bonds of family and faith bind up the brokenhearted.
When Elizabeth Kaufman received the news of her husband’s death at the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863, she felt only relief. She determined that she would never be at the mercy of any man again, even if it meant not having a family of her own. Then along came Aaron Zook . . .
Despite the severity of his injuries, Aaron has resolved to move west and leave the pain of the past behind him. He never imagined that the Amish way of life his grandfather had rejected long ago would be so enticing. That, and a certain widow he can’t get out of his mind.
Yet, even in a simple community, life has a way of getting complicated. Aaron soon finds that while he may have left the battlefield behind, there is another fight he must win–the one for the heart of the woman he loves.
Beautifully written Amish story with unexpected twists and turns I’ve never read before.
My heart broke for Elizabeth and what she had gone through in her last marriage. Her and Aaron shared a history of brokenness and that was one of the things that brought them together.
Both of them needed healing and to find the love of God again and the author wove a beautiful tale around it with mystery, suspense and the beautiful Amish flavour of family and faith.
God heals the brokenhearted and this book is a beautiful reminder of that.
I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
