The Preacher's Daughter by Patricia John



For a Pennsylvania Amish family whose faith has been tested, the blessings of marriage, home, and togetherness seem impossible. Patricia Johns brings her trademark warmth to this story of love’s powerful redemption.
With her preacher father in prison for fraud, Elizabeth Yoder’s life in the community of Bountiful has been painfully uprooted. Mindful of wearing out her welcome with her family, she jumps at the chance to stay with elderly Bridget Lantz while the woman’s daughter is away. Elizabeth has secret plans to leave for another Amish community where she might get a fresh start, but here with Bridget, she feels comfortable—until Bridget’s strapping grandson, Solomon, returns from eight years with the English, and inspires feelings that shake Elizabeth’s resolution . . . 
Solomon has had his own trouble with the law, after falling in with some bad influences. He’s paid the price, despite his innocence, but the Amish are even more wary of him than they are of spirited Elizabeth. With good reason, he supposes—he’s not sure he’s ready to commit to this way of life again, especially since the Englishers are the ones offering him solutions. The only thing that seems certain is his attraction to Elizabeth. As they strive to find their places in the community, and with each other, can they open their hearts to the blessing of love? 


Another wonderful Amish book and I thoroughly enjoyed.
I like this author's style of writing because she's not afraid to talk about tough subjects. Shock, grief and loss in a much different way.
I like how she adds that God will and does orchestrate things as to how they should go in real life and sometimes they don't even when life gets tough like it is for us now.
Romance was perfectly rounded out to where it wasn't too mushy.
I love Amish stories because I love learning about the way they live, religion, and well, just their lifestyle in general. Seems to me they will be able to get through hards times if needed to.
I really enjoyed this novel and feel that this is her best yet!
5 stars hands down for an awesome story.
One I will be thinking about for a while now.
My thanks for a copy of this book.
I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
