The Mending by Susan Simpson



Malinda Stauffer is happy that her gut frienden Phoebe Yoder may soon be married. Of course, Malinda can't help wondering about her own future. She hopes someday to find the same contentment as a wife and mother that she has helping her own mamm care for Malinda's father and five brothers. But a challenging health issue has her convinced no man wants the burden of a fraa who needs rest when there are farms to tend and businesses to run. Adding to her stress is the unwanted attention of an aggressive big city doctor smitten by her--an unsettling distraction she has kept to herself.

Timothy Brenneman works alongside Malinda's brother, Sam, handcrafting the finest Amish furniture in St. Mary's County. He can't recall when Sam's little schweschder blossomed into a beautiful young woman--but he would do anything to hold Malinda close and soothe the sad yearning in her eyes. Sensing her unease at the mention of her doctor only confirms his desire to protect her. Healing, however, is in Gott's hands, and a hard lesson in the true meaning of love may soon bless them both in ways they never imagined .


I got the pleasure of reading this newest book by Susan Lantz Simpson. 
I loved it! I finished this book in one day bc it was so very good.
This story will want you to knock some heads together, laugh and cry with the new characters. And yes I even pretended that I was at the table eating dinner with them and boy! Saloma's food is gooooood!!
Im so very glad that Timothy stood his ground where a certain girl was concerned. Now, that's what I call a real man!!! He's everything and more!!
However; Im so proud of Malinda that I wanted to reach in the book and give her a big hug for being the strong woman I know she is.
Oh and before I forget we can't leave the fun loving Atlee out. I had to snicker with him. I do wish that he was the big brother that I never got to have. 
This is one Amish story y'all just have to read!!
I received this book for free. All opinions are my own.
