    I've read several of Emma Miller's Amish Series Hannah's Daughte

    I've read several of Emma Miller's Amish Series Hannah's Daughters. I have to say that though I love most of them, Johanna was the hardest of the women to like.




    You got to know her more in Leah's Choice, and you know that her first marriage is not a good one. Her husband was an alcoholic and very abusive. However, like that book, this one is a slow start, even though an emergency sends Johanna back to her ex-beau.




    There's so much drama involved in her past courtship with Roland, yet he is instantly likable. There were more than a few times when I wanted to shake her and say, "How can you not love this guy? He's sweet. He loves you. He needs you. Wake up and smell the shoo fly pie!"




    I have to say, that when she did first propose to Roland I had a giggle. It is hard to imagine an Amish woman being that gutsy around a man.




    Even when she does decide to court Roland,  after the proposal debacle, she doesn't seem to want to trust him, because of something he did in the past. (A something that kept her from marrying him the first time around.) Remember, much drama to her past courtship with him.




    It is a sweet story of second chances, and Johanna's children are such fun, as is Roland's son. I wish there would have been more between Johanna, J.J. and the bees.




    I recommend this to anyone that loves Amish or Christian romance. Review copy provided by Net Galley in exchange for an honest review

    Emma Miller's series of Hannah's Daughters is a wonderful Christ

    Emma Miller's series of Hannah's Daughters is a wonderful Christian, Amish, loving series. A marriage of convenience starts with a widow and widower, each having children. Yet, it is actually a long ago relationship that a silly misunderstanding causes each to go down different crossroads, they meet up again, for a new restart. How it ends, will be up to the reader to find out.

    Johanna has been a widow long enough that she knows its time to

    Johanna has been a widow long enough that she knows its time to remarry but after being in a abusive first marriage she is not sure she wants to remarry at all. The one man she can see herself with is the man who broke her heart as a teen. Instead of marrying for love she proposes to Roland as a marriage of convenience but Roland will have none of that. He still loves Johanna after all these years and his former marriage was not a marriage of love first and he will not do that again. Can he convince Johanna that love is worth it after all?




         I enjoyed this book and really like this series. 




    What I liked: I liked both Johanna and Roland. The way the story unfolded you get little bits of information about what happened to them when they where dating as teens and it keeps you guessing. I also liked Johanna’s family. Most of them have now had their own books and so it makes it fun to see how some of the others are doing and how they interact. 




    What I did not like: Johanna was so upset with Roland with what happened when they where teens that I was expecting something horrible and when it finally came to light what he had done I was like that’s it?? I also thought there could have been a little more development about the fact that Johanna’s first husband was a abuser and her feeling about that and moving on. There was some talking about it but it seemed like a bigger deal to me then it was given in the book.




         Over all I enjoyed this book. I really like the family and hope this is not the last book. Unfortunately I did not get to read the book before this one so I was a little lose about Grace but the author did a good job of recapping the story. This book can be read as a stand alone but your going to want to go back and get to know the other sister after you read this book! A good read if you enjoy Amish fiction.
