Book Review: A Simple Vow by Charlotte Hubbard

 A simple Vow

A Simple Vow (Simple Gifts)  



From Amazon:

"Hubbard writes Amish stories with style and grace." --RT Book Reviews

Housed in a rustic red barn, the Simple Gifts crafts shop celebrates the talents of the Amish of Willow Ridge--and the faith that inspires them. For the acceptance of simplicity opens the path to love. 

As far as Edith Riehl is concerned, the baby twins thrust suddenly into her arms are a heaven-sent gift. Unable to conceive, she longs to be a mother with a home of her own. She's going to abide by her promise to handsome Asa Detweiler to take care of them while he looks for their real father. And even if her domineering dat Cornelius refuses to countenance Asa's suit, she can only pray the bachelor's honesty and persistence will uncover the truth--even as he's kindled an impossible hope for a love of her own . . . 

Asa can't understand why anyone would think he would be so dishonorable as to father babies and then abandon them. He's determined to clear his name--but Edith's caring ways also inspire him to help heal her wounded spirit and earn her trust. In the face of heartbreaking deception, he and Edith must find the strength to understand, forgive . . . and claim their own hearts' joy. 



My Thoughts:

A Simple Vow proved to be a enjoyable read for me.  It kept me turning the pages with a different story line then I've ever read. There was romance, mystery, scandal, and love all packed in to one wonderful book.   It was unpredictable what would happen next..something I love. 

Edith with her willingness to step in with help and her trusting nature was my favorite character in the book.  She became strong in her belief that she needed to give help where it was needed.  A reminder that love will conquer all.

The forgiving and accepting nature of the community of Willow Ridge stood out for me in A Simple Vow. Their willingness to become friends with others even though they may not conform to their ways is commendable.  

Although I feel this book can stand alone it left me wanting to know more what happens to the other characters.   I'm secretly hoping for a romance rematch.

A wonderful read!
