Jo was soon pulled out of the ceremonial spell the bishop wove with his words, however, meeting Michael’s gaze again. It had been such a blessing when she’d spotted him earlier this morning, striding toward her. As he’d done in her fondest dreams over the winter, he’d held out his hands and she’d grabbed them as though she’d never let them go.

“I have a surprise for you, Josie-girl,” he’d whispered. “Right after the wedding, you’ll see it.”

Josie-girl. The sound of Michael’s unique endearment had made her eager heart turn somersaults. How was she supposed to pay attention to the wedding ceremony while she wondered about the surprise he’d promised?

But one thing Jo knew, as surely as she could bake cinnamon rolls: Michael had returned to Morning Star loving her even more than when Mamm had sent him and his dat away at Christmas. Michael and Nelson weren’t renting the Fussners’ dawdi haus anymore, but the Wengerds were back in her life, and they intended to move forward with the plans they’d made during her visit to their home in Queen City last December.

Life simply didn’t get any more exciting than that.

My Review:

Love Blooms in Morning Star (book 4) is filled with love, compassion, romance, and a mystery.  I've loved reading about each woman who help start the Market place and has found true love.  

This book is Jo's story.

Jo's life with a Mother who is going through a difficult time  emotionally, would be hard on anyone to take.  Sometimes, it was so hard to understand and at times it was downright embarrassing.  I love that the Amish community were concerned about Jo's Mamm and gathered around her to help and give advice.  It was a trying time for her daughter Jo, who just wanted to be with her sweetheart, Michael. I do applaud Jo though for her love and caring for her Mamm.

I found myself totally absorbed in this book and kept turning the pages to find out how it how it will all play out.  I think the theme of this book is to never give up.

What a great heartfelt read!
