A marriage is tested in this Old Order Amish novel of longing for renewed love and a path for forgiveness from the best-selling author of Gathering the Threads.
Old Order Amish wife and mother Jemima has put her marriage and family ahead of herself for years. She's set herself aside. Raising four children, she's followed all the rules and has been patient in looking forward to her time to chase a dream of her own.
But when she finds out that her life savings for pursuing that dream is gone--and her husband, Roy, has been hiding a child with another woman--her entire world is shattered. Will she be able to listen to God and love Roy's child? With so much at stake, how can she and Roy fix their relationship before their lives come crashing down?
The Englisch Daughter will shock you, make you sad, and then mad all in a couple of pages. You will say, I knew something was up, but you won't be able to guess how it happened or why.
Jemima was my favorite character- Loving, trusting (maybe a bit too much) and always there when she was needed the most. I was so worried how she would stand up to what was in her future. Focusing on dreams, forgiveness, love, and trust this was great Amish read that will keep you turning the pages! This book was sent to me by Netgalley. I was not required to leave a positive review.
