This has been one of my favorite books of 2016. I could not put this book down. It was so wonderful when Grace and Mark both meet. They were kindred spirits from the beginning. Mark did not mind the birthmark on her face. Most people could not get passed it. Grace had a friend leave the Amish after joining the church and so had Mark. Both had a hard time shunning their friend or family member. Can Grace’s father understand how Grace and Mark feel about this and let them get married? This is a great book that makes you laugh, cry and think. I received this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion. A handsome newcomer with secrets shows a yearning Amish woman a chance at happiness—but their love will need all their courage to keep . . .
Grace Blauch is skilled at midwifery—and crafting quilts that help others pass on messages of enduring family love. But a disfiguring birthmark keeps the young Amish woman from a husband and home of her own—until Mark King arrives from another community. His helpfulness and independent nature earn Grace’s respect. And he finds her outspoken ways and determination to do right irresistibly appealing. Soon Grace is planning a wedding quilt of her very own . . . until her father discovers that Mark’s shunned brother is hiding somewhere in town . . .
Grace can well understand why Mark took such a risk once she hears his wrenching reasons. But she fears even prayer will not convince her father to restore his blessing on their union. She wills herself to face the end of her dreams, but sudden danger and an impossible act of generosity will show her that abiding hope can inspire the most precious of miracles . . .
“Endearing characters and a delightful story make this a keeper for fans of Amish romance.” –Emma Miller
Molly Jebber is an educational, motivational, and Women’s Christian Connection speaker. She was raised in a small town in the Midwest, and insists if you had blinked twice, you would’ve missed it. She loves God, her family and friends, sunshine, swimming and traveling to the Amish communities. Creating historical Amish characters and throwing them into difficult situations and joyous times has been challenging and fun for her. The greatest reward she’s experienced in becoming an author is meeting wonderful people from all over the world who’ve been encouraging and supportive.
