Book Description

Life has taken much from Linda Zook. Now she dares to hope for a chance at love and a new beginning.

Linda Zook, 32, works part-time at the Lancaster Grand Hotel. As the sole survivor of a buggy accident that left her orphaned at age four, she was raised by her unwilling Uncle Reuben. Linda longs to be worthy of someone, but the life-long effects of her injuries and her upbringing under the care of her embittered uncle have destroyed her self-worth. .

Aaron Ebersol, 32, left the Amish community 17 years ago when he could no longer bear the restrictions or the constant tension with his father. He’d written too many unanswered letters to his mother and found himself incapable of putting down any roots in his new home in Missouri. Success in work could not replace the family that denied Aaron, even after all of these years. .

Aaron hastily returns to the Amish community of Paradise, PA, after receiving word of his mother’s stroke. Hesitant to get too close to the family he was once a part of, he decides to stay at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast. He soon encounters Linda, working there part-time, and they begin to develop a friendship. .

Aaron’s return allows him to reconnect with his family as he jumps into home improvement projects, hoping to make his parents’ house more accessible to his handicapped mother. But before long, he is enraged to learn that his brother, Solomon, had hidden all of Aaron’s letters to their mother. .

Linda and Aaron must each learn to forgive the family members who have deceived and forsaken them. And Aaron must also show Linda that she is worthy of his love.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Life hasn’t been easy for 32 year old Linda Zook, being orphaned at age 4 and raised by an uncle that didn’t want her. But Linda is determined to make something of her life, working part time at the Lancaster Grand Hotel, she desires to we worthy of a life that she can be happy and loved. Thirty-two year old Aaron Ebersol comes back into the picture after leaving the Amish community for almost two decades because of the harsh demands of his father. These two meet up, but what will life be for them because of their background? Can they find love and forgiveness for the family that wronged them?

Amy Clipston is one of my favorite Amish writers. I love her writing style, the long series about this Amish Community and the families, and I fell in love with her characters in the first book of this series! Linda and Aaron’s story is a sad, but yet a happy one. I thoroughly enjoyed following the lives of these two characters through the thick and thin of their relationship. As I read their story, I could clearly see the love, grace, forgiveness and redemption of our God in the lives of these characters. In everything they went through, God was in the driver’s seat of their lives and leading them every step of the way. If you enjoy Amish fiction, this series is a must for you. Check out A Simple Prayer by Amy Clipston, and the other books in this awesome series.
