With Winters First Frost by Kelly Irvin

DWith Winters First Frost

by Kelly Irvin


Book Description

With the coldest season comes the warmest of second chances.

At age seventy-three, Laura Kauffman knows she is closer to the end of life than the beginning. If God willed it, she would join her beloved late husband soon. Even so, Laura wonders what purpose God might have for her in this winter of her life—and why this season seems so lonely.

Widower Zechariah Stutzman is facing his own barren season, despite the great-grandchildren swirling around him. With his Parkinson’s worsening, he had no choice but to move in with his grandson’s family, though now he feels adrift and useless.

When Laura offers to help with Zechariah’s five great-grandchildren after their mother has a difficult childbirth, Zechariah is unsure how he will adjust to the warm but tart demeanor of this woman he has known since grade school. But soon Laura and Zechariah learn they are asking God the same questions about loss and hope. And they begin to wonder if He is providing answers after all.

With Winter’s First Frost reminds us that God’s purposes always bear fruit—and sometimes love is sweeter with age.


First of all I love this book cover! It is what Dee me to this book! And I love Kelly Irvin’s books as well! And this was such a special read! Laura and Zechariah are both getting on in years, both feeling as though their work on this earth is finished, but God may have other plans! Laura’s helping in Zechariah’s granddaughter after having her Nablus results in the two elderly people getting together, and they realize they are needed.

This is a beautiful heartwarming story set in the beautiful Amish community in Jamesport, Missouri. Ms. Irvin does a fantastic job of creating characters that we will all love as they weave their way into our hearts throughout this story. They plot flows well, and kept my interest throughout the story. I like that Redemption, love, and faith were woven into the characters lives! This is a story you don’t wasn’t to miss, especially if you are an Amish fan!
