A Mother's Gift by [Hubbard, Charlotte]


A Mother's Gift by Charlotte Hubbard


BLURB:

For Leah Otto, marrying Jude Shetler is a long-held dream come true. As a young girl, she was captivated by his good looks and talent as an auctioneer. When Jude, now a widower with three children, begins to court her, Leah doesn’t hesitate. Other men may not appreciate her tomboy ways, but Jude values Leah’s practical nature and her skill with the animals she tends, and both enter the marriage with joy and optimism.

Three months later, Leah feels as if her world is coming down around her. Her twin teenage step-daughters, Alice and Adeline, are pushing boundaries and taking far too many risks, while five-year-old Stevie deeply misses his mother. Leah, more at ease in a barn tending her goats and chickens than in a kitchen, struggles with her housekeeping duties.



Then a baby is abandoned on their doorstep, and Leah must search her soul. Caring for little Betsy fills her with renewed purpose and the strength to begin pulling her family together. With Jude’s steadfast support, Leah finds that what she once thought of as a happy ending may be something even better—the beginning of a life rich in love, faith, and unexpected blessings.


An excerpt from A Mother's Gift:

“Leah, your life will change in ways you can’t anticipate when you marry,” Lenore began softly. She rested her head against the headboard, grasping her daughter’s hand. “When you move into a man’s home—”

“Oh, Mama, you’ve already told me what to expect in the bedroom,” Leah interrupted with a nervous giggle. “It’s not as though I haven’t seen the deer and the horses mating.”

Lenore closed her eyes, praying for words that would gently pierce the balloon of maidenly naiveté in which Leah seemed to live. “There’s more to marriage than mating,” she whispered earnestly. “You’ll be moving into a home where Jude and his kids have established their routine. We’ve both heard the rumors about how Alice and Adeline might be behaving inappropriately during their rumspringa—”

“They’re sixteen, and they’re very pretty,” Leah quickly pointed out. “Twins are inclined to get into double trouble as part of their nature at that age. I certainly found mischief during my running-around years.”

Lenore sighed again. She wished Raymond were here to help her with this difficult discussion.

My thoughts:  

A Mother's Love was just such a joy to read.  Packed with romance, action, and traditional Amish family life, there was never a dull moment. So much was happening that I wanted to know every detail and I never wanted to skip a page!   

This story is about the Amish but this is a story that should resonate with everyone.  Amish or not we all have our challenges with raising a family and we all try to find a solution that works for them.  I give Leah a lot of credit for staying strong even when the going got tough. She always tried her best to be the most loving and caring Mother to all of the children.   

What a great story for Mother's day or any day for that matter.  This one is a keeper to put on my book shelf to read again!   

A great, great read!

Book Review: Pelican Point by Irene Hannon

Pelican Point: A Hope Harbor Novel by [Hannon, Irene]

Pelican Point: A Hope Harbor Novel


From Amazon:
A crumbling lighthouse is not part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career.

Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home--and she's determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.

Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?

Bestselling author Irene Hannon invites readers back to their favorite town for a story that will light a beacon of hope within their hearts.


My thoughts:

Pelican Point drew me in with the wonderful descriptions of the coast and the light house.  The lovely description of the small town makes me want to find this place and live there.  

Sometimes the small characters in the background grab my attention and Charley did that for me in this book.  I loved his wisdom and the way he genuinely cared for the town and it's people.   His eccentric ways made me smile.  

Not that I wasn't interested in both of the couples lives but at times the book really slowed down for me with too many details.  I was ready to skip pages but then a good suspense came and kept me turning the pages to the end of the book.  

A good read!  

This book was given to me by the publisher.  I was not required to give a positive review.
