Love by the Numbers by Laura V Hilton

This leads you back to the understanding that the Amish aren't perfect and have much the same type of problems as we do. From temptations like adultery, premarital sex, to sexual harassment, and things from nature like destructive storms. All these things happened to either Lydia or Caleb, or both. Lydia had to flee her hometown and her family because the Bishop believed his brother over her and shunned her. She moved away to run a gift store owned by her aunt, who was going on a mission…

The Saturday Night Supper Club – Carla Laureano (5 Stars)

A Home for Hannah by Amy Lillard

This was a different type of Amish story from most I've read. Amish do have problems just as non-Amish, it's just usually handled within their community and their church. All Hannah wanted to do was just get a little taste of the "English" world before joining the church. But when she was ready to return things happened that kept her from returning. She waited 15 years before she came back to her Amish home. Her husband passed away and left her with no money. She spent time waffling back and…

Review of THE MASTERPIECE

Title: The Masterpiece (Signed Book), Author: Francine Rivers

“All his assumptions about Grace Moore had been wrong. He hadn’t expected to share common roots: devastating loss, fear, pain, no love,” Roman acknowledges in Francine Rivers’s novel, The Masterpiece.

The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse

I enjoy reading real history within a fictionalized story and this was a good one. The author's notes tell of the great research she did and even used the names of many actual passengers on board for the trip to the New World in her novel. Many had great hope for a new life. Many were fearful and doubtful. Many died aboard ship and many died that first winter. The passengers had little personal space. It was cramped and disease and seasickness was rampant. The smells were stifling and storms…

Liza's Second Chance by Molly Jebber

An Amish Charm Bakery Novel, first in a new series! This whole series is going to be great if they are all like this first one. The characters were real. The emotions were realistic and sometimes Kleenex grabbing. And the setting was described beautifully. I kept wanting to eat cookies or pastries. Thankfully the recipe for Liza's famous molasses cookies is found in the back of the book. They sound a lot like gingerbread cookies, which I love.

Liza had been in a very bad abusive marriage…
