Sarah’s Orphans by Vannetta Chapman 

I could not put this book down. It has been one of my favorite books this year. Make sure to have Kleenex handy because you will need them. This makes you laugh, cry and really think. This was one of the first books in the Amish genre where it talks about having bad parents and fostering children that are not Amish. I hope there are more books in this series because it is one of my favorite series by Vannetta Chapman. I received this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion.These orphans may be on their own…but God hasn’t abandoned them. Sarah Yoder belongs to a Plain community in Oklahoma, but her days are far from simple. Her father suffers from bipolar disorder–until a tragic accident ends his life and the abuse he inflicted. Instead of stepping up to provide a better future, Sarah’s mother packs her bags and leaves her six children behind. Alone with her younger siblings, Sarah is exhausted but finally at peace. Then she nearly runs over a small Hispanic boy with her buggy…and somehow finds herself sheltering two more orphans. Paul Byler moved to Cody’s Creek to help his brother in a time of need. But now that Joseph has recovered from his heart attack, Paul’s ready for a quiet place of his own. The only problem? His new property lands him next door to the orphaned Yoder family–and a calling from God he can’t seem to ignore. A story of extraordinary grace and love in the face of desperate need, Sarah’s Orphans is the third standalone novel in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection by Vannetta Chapman.
