Book Review: Marrying Jonah by Amy Lillard

Marrying Jonah (A Wells Landing Romance) by [Lillard, Amy]

Marrying Jonah (A Wells Landing Romance)

From Amazon:

Life isn’t always as simple as it seems for the Amish community of Wells Landing, Oklahoma. Neither is love. . .Everyone in town knows that Sarah Yoder is enamored with Jonah Miller, even though he’s been with his girlfriend, Lorie, for years. But all that changes when Lorie runs off with another man. Inconsolable, his faith in love shattered, Jonah resists everyone’s attempts to ease his pain—until the unexpected happens one night.

Jonah is filled with confusion. Sarah is not the woman he yearns for, yet he asks for her hand in marriage, if only out of honor. Still, he worries, can they live in harmony if their vows are built on a lie? As Sarah seeks spiritual advice, Jonah tries to look toward the future—and finally begins to see her for who she really is: A beautiful, strong-willed woman whose heart is pure and belief is true. But will it be too late for him to prove that he wants to be her husband?

My thoughts:  

Very emotional is the way I describe this book.  Turmoil, heartache, forgiveness, and loss were all present in this page turner.  Marrying Jonah made you feel like you were deep in the heart of Amish country with the great descriptions of the countryside,  Amish Sunday dinners, and wedding celebrations.  

I felt both heartache and disappointment in Jonah and Sarah's circumstances.  Although Jonah proved to be a good provider and Sarah a good wife, they both had issues.  It just kind of brings to life that we are all people and we all have problems.  

Now I had problems with the mother-in-law and I think you will too.

Marrying Jonah, kept me up late one night reading page after page trying to find a good stopping point so I could sleep (there wasn't one)!

A wonderful wonderful read!
