I have a new Amish book to share with all of you called A Dream of Home written by Amy Clipston.
When she moves to Amish country to find peace and healing, Madeleine finds a special community—and a special man—who pull her out of her solitude into a new life.
Moving to Pennsylvania wasn’t in Madeleine’s original plans. She should still be in California and should have married her pilot fiancé a year ago—but death has a way of changing everything. Now the former Air Force flight nurse is living alone in Paradise, Pennsylvania, and working as a maid at the Lancaster Grand Hotel. She isn’t exactly a widow . . . but she sure feels like one.
Saul Beiler isn’t exactly a widower . . . but his wife is long gone. His eleven-year-old daughter, Emma, doesn’t know that her mother fled the Amish community—and married another man—but she does know that her dat is lonely, and that a pretty young maedel just moved in next door. Madeline’s numb heart begins to thaw as she spends more time with the innocent and ever optimistic Emma. The stronger her friendship grows with the young girl, the more intrigued Madeline grows about the humble, strong, man raising her on his own.
But even as a strange attraction pulls Saul and Madeleine across a stark cultural divide, they—and everybody else—have to wonder: What could they possibly have in common besides heartache? Will love allow Madeleine to finally find the home she’s been dreaming of all along?My Review:
This is another heartwarming story set in the Lancaster Grand Hotel where Madeline works after losing her fiancé. She used to live in California and wasn't Amish so this is an adjustment for her.
Of course, Saul is not in the mood for courting either as his wife had left him, so Madeline doesn't have to worry about him in the beginning. But, his daughter, Emma is the one hoping and praying that something will happen between them.
Because of their different cultures, Madeline isn't sure and several other people are wondering the same thing. After much prodding from Emma and a helping hand from fate, Saul and Madeline spend time together and that is the beginning of something that Emma has always dreamed of.
Hopefully, Saul nor Madeline will do something to ruin what Emma wants more than anything!
