Lenore Lapp is an Amish schoolteacher in her late twenties still living at home with her parents and grandparents. She thought love had passed her by until she meets Jesse Smucker, a widower with a baby daughter. She quickly falls in love with them both and accepts Jesse’s proposal of marriage, but Jesse breaks off their engagement when he realizes he can’t marry only for convenience.
Resigned to living single, Lenore throws herself into caring for her elders. While working in her grandmother’s garden, she digs up an old jar. Will Lenore find healing for her broken heart and solve long-buried family secrets by reading the note contained inside?
Sometimes, even after reading the first two books, I found myself getting a little confused on the characters in The Healing Jar. Once though I got them all straight again, I was caught up in the story.
Healing needs to take place in many forms throughout this book. Secrets are revealed and hearts are healed, as well as they can be. The hardest part is sometimes not being able to go back in the past to resolve issues and let people know it's ok. Yet, there is a healing there too.
I really loved Lenore's character in this book. She was smart and knew that she wanted a loving relationship. She was caring towards her family and she was hardworking. She would be someone I would love to know.
I really like this book the best out of all three books. It just clicked with me. Great read!
There is a great recipe in the back of the book. That's always a plus!
I was given this book by Net-galley and this is my honest review.
