Renewed faith and happiness await three generations of women in this heartwarming series from Amy Lillard, set in the Oklahoma Amish community of Wells Landing . . . With her daughter newly married, widow Charlotte Burkhart should have been content to find a companion for her later years in Amish widower Glenn Esh. Yet, Charlotte longs for more than life has offered her thus far. When she discovers a baby on her doorstep, the child seems like the miracle Charlotte’s been praying for. Unfortunately, Glenn doesn’t feel the same way. What’s a single woman aching to experience motherhood once more to do? From the moment Paul Brenneman sees Charlotte Burkhart with a new baby, he senses his lovely neighbor and the sweet child are meant to be. Which is why he offers to marry Charlotte and make her adoption dreams come true. No stranger to heartache himself, the stalwart widower knows second chances don’t happen every day—especially not with a woman like Charlotte, the first woman in a long time who has him taking a leap of faith that happily-ever-after is still possible . .
I loved the romance, the mystery, the close caring families, and the love of God displayed throughout A New Love for Charlotte. Amy Lillard manages to also weave in loneliness, midlife issues, and mental disabilities into the story.
All the characters bring such life to this book and I can understand how each character feels in this point in their lives. Charlotte, my favorite character, finds out real quickly that not everyone is quite on the same page she is in her life right now. She is a strong but lonely woman who stands up for what she hopes and dreams will happen in her future while trying her best to lean on God's word.
Although I've enjoyed every one of the Wells Landing Romance books, A New Love for Charlotte, to me is the best one yet of this series.
A great relaxing read! I read it all in one night never wanting to put it down.
I was given this book by the publisher.
