A Woodland Miracle Book Review

I have a really good book to share with you today called A Woodland Miracle written by Ruth Reid that I think you will enjoy reading!

Grace feels like she can't measure up to those around her, and Ben could use a good dose of humility.

In their small northern Michigan district, where women outnumber men three to one, Grace doesn't believe she will ever attract a husband, especially with her limp. Tired of struggling both emotionally and physically, Grace is ready to see the specialist in Ohio, even if it means going against everything she's heard about God's grace being sufficient.

Ben Eicher is a young man from Pinecraft, Florida, whose carefree ways have caused him to lose his father's respect-again. According to Ben, though, life shouldn't be so serious that it suffocates all the fun. When he is sent to Michigan's Upper Peninsula to get his life back on track, he never thought it would mean working alongside a woman-especially a hardworking one like Grace. The last thing Grace wants is another friendship with a man who pities her.

Meanwhile, the Amish community becomes entangled with two potentially dangerous men on the run. When Ben discovers Grace has been kidnapped, he sets out to find the woman who has captured his heart and risks his own life when he attempts to lure the captors away.

Grace must learn that God's love is sufficient, and Ben is left to ponder whether he belongs back in Florida, or in the northern woods-with Grace. 
My thoughts:
This story is a real tear jerker, so you better have your hanky near you while reading this tragic story. Grace actually believes that a doctor in Ohio can fix her but when she finally gets up the courage to go see him, he doesn't have very good news to share with her.
It's a wonderful setting in an Amish community where Grace lives and Ben comes from Florida to prove to his father he can settle down and get a job done.
He has never met anyone like Grace and he begins to see her as a beautiful woman and not the girl with the bad leg and has to limp. If only Grace could accept that fact, she might be a lot happier.
Will their love for each other override their fears?
Happy Reading!
