ABOUT THE BOOK
Abigail Schrock knows God can make all things new, but does that include her broken heart?
It seems as if everyone is falling in love in Birch Creek, including Abigail Schrock. But when heartbreak descends on her already fragile world, she can’t help but feel that if she’d only been a little prettier, she could be on her way down the wedding aisle. To make matters worse, Abigail’s two sisters have found love, while all Abigail can seem to find is the chocolate she has stashed away in the pantry.
Asa Bontrager has never had trouble with the ladies in his Amish community—his good looks have always gotten him far. Which is why he’s baffled by the call he’s received from God to pursue Abigail, a woman who seems determined to turn him away.
Can Abigail find the peace and joy she so desperately desires? Will she allow herself to stop running and melt into the embrace of unforeseen comfort? If she does, she may just discover a love powerful enough to lift the heavy burden of grief weighing her down and restore her hope in a promising future.
I'm sad to say goodbye to this wonderful little town and it's people who have given me a lot of pleasure and contentment in reading this book.
This is about family, friends, forgiveness, and most of all hope
I like the fact that family is there for one another which as it should be but, sadly in real life it is not. I would love to have a big family all my own.
Friends sometimes are good to have if you get the right ones! I admire this group of people even though I know Amish aren't perfect as the author shows us through some of the families.
Hope because as long as there is hope it is easy to go on living. If there us no hope,ejat is the point of living.
Forgiveness especially this so we can live at peace with one another. We especially have to forgive ourselves in order to forgive others as Jesus would have us do.
Hmmm, did I leave anything out? oh yes, pride. Amish forbids pride because it goeth before a fall.
I truly enjoyed this. I finished it in 1 night
Kathleen sure know how to make a story enjoyable. I could definitely feel their pain and rejoiced when certain ppl were able to fulfill their dreams. This is a definite 5 star review. I recommend this book for sure!
I received a copy of this book from Booklook bloggers in exchange for an honest review
