Annie's Recipe by Lisa Jones Baker



Three young Amish women, each gifted with a hand-carved hope chest, find that one by one, with patience and faith, their most blessed dreams for the future can come true... 

Annie Mast and Levi Miller were best friends until his father was shunned by the church. Now, ten years later, Levi has returned to Arthur, Illinois, for a brief visit, and he and Annie discover their bond is as strong as ever. Spending as much time together as possible, Annie finds herself dreaming of a future with Levi. And Levi is soon dreaming of building a home on a beautiful local hillside--to live in with Annie. Yet their longings are unlikely to become reality... 
Levi is part of the English world, and while Annie cannot see herself there, she knows she must reveal her heart's truth to him. And Levi, strongly reminded of his Amish roots, knows he must heal the bitterness of the past. And together, with love on their side, they just may find their way to an answered prayer...


I have a new author and I for sure love her writing style. 

I like this book because it brings fantasy to a crashing halt forcing reality to come back into focus.
I enjoy reading Amish novels especially if they have certain life messages like this one does.
In this book Annie talks to Levi about how you cant just take the good and not the bad. Life isnt fair but then it wasn't meant to be.
Annie also points out how we are meant to be at a certain place in a certain time.
I like Annie. She's very wise andis a person who wants everyone to be happy including Levi. I like her too because she kind and compassionate about ppl and animals. She's also a smart cookie!!
Levi is a pretty mixed up guy. He knows what he wants but is unsure in how to go after it. 
Levi is a great person to have around!!! It's a I've got ur back if u have mine kind of thing. 
I think along with God's help and Annie's, Levi does eventually figure things out.
I strongly recommend this book. 
I received a complimentary copy from the author and in no way required to review this
