The Amish Widow's Rescue by Rachel J. Good



Pregnant and recently widowed, Grace Fisher is determined to provide for her family on her own. Thankfully, her jam business is popular in her Amish community. But it's difficult keeping up with her work, her farm chores, and her two mischievous children. Especially now that they've taken to idolizing their neighbor Elijah. While the handsome farmer is kind and generous, he seems intent on holding Grace and her little ones at a distance...

Elijah Beiler has always admired his neighbor Grace. So standing by while she struggles to support her family isn't an option. Offering to take over her farm duties, Elijah is determined to help while remaining detached. He knows all too well that love only leads to heartbreak. Yet the more time he spends with Grace and her children, the harder he finds it to leave each day. But can Elijah overcome past hurts and open his heart to this ready-made family?


I have been an avid reader of Rachel J. Good for a long time and she didn't disappoint me this time either!! I always look forward to her messages and stories.
Rachel J. Good does an awesome job in portraying these characters with their feelings, thoughts just like they were real life Amish families.
I enjoyed reading about how Grace works through her feelings about certain things in this story.
I think if that were to happen to me I'd be lost. I'd be lost in a different way. But, in a good way someone else will always be with me where ever I go. Jesus is my friend forever and ever.
Elijah is a gem. I just love him.
I love him Because of the type of man he is. Gentle, kind etc. 
We all have "skeletons." Each if us has a past but God can forgive. 
I think my favorite character is Miriam. I love her name and I love how she is a strong supporter in this story. Miriam has an awesome mind and she knows how to use it well and plus help Grace. 
I received this book from Netgalley and no compensations were received. All opinions are my own!!
