Book Review: Lorie's Heart by Amy Lillard

 Lorie's Heart (Wells Landing Series Book 3) by [Lillard, Amy]Lorie's Heart


Lorie's Heart (A Wells Landing Romance Book 3)  By Amy Lillard

From Amazon:

Welcome back to Wells Landing, Oklahoma, the tranquil Amish community where still waters run deep and a brave young woman sets out to discover her faith, her family, and herself…
 
Lorie Kauffman is grief-stricken when her father passes away unexpectedly. But her heartache quickly turns to bewilderment when she discovers he’d been leading two lives—one of simplicity and hard work in Wells Landing, and one fraught with painful ordeals in Tulsa. As she starts digging into her family’s past, Lorie finds herself torn between the Amish world and the Englisch world—and she’s no longer certain where she belongs…
 
Lorie knows that if she leaves Wells Landing, she may never be able to return. But what if her destiny lies in the outside world—the world her father knew so well? Change is never easy, but with a bit of courage and the help of a handsome and kind-hearted Englischer, she just may find the peace, acceptance, and love she’s been longing for…


My thoughts:

As I sit down to read this book I was pleasantly surprised to find myself reading a Amish mystery romance.   It was such a delightful read!   


Amy Lillard, kept me on my toes with this one as I tried to make up Lorie's Heart for her.  The feelings of grieve, compassion, betrayal, and love were described so perfectly, I felt them too.   Along with the indecision's and the mystery, I was up half the night reading.


I admired Lorie for her strength and determination to find out the truth.  Then she took that truth and decided (with God's help) what was best for her.   


This book reminded me that we all take a different amount of time to grieve.   That grieve also can linger, when the person who passes was not who you thought they were.


This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.
