Ruth can’t get past the feelings of inadequacy and overwhelm that she’s felt since she became a widow. With six children and no way to provide for them is there anything else she could feel? She just can’t provide for them the way that she did before…
Then, the things she so desperately needs just start appearing in boxes on her front porch. Who could be providing for them? Who could understand exactly what she needs or when she feels lowest?
And who is that handsome man that just moved in down the lane?
This book is a very difficult one to review. Even though at the end of I can say it was a good book, there were several times when I just wanted to put it down and walk away. The first half really drug for me. The writing wasn’t poor it was just that it was sad and action oriented. Very different than what I read.
The romance was sweet but a bit quick and different.
Take note, though, I did end up buying this book for Grandma it’s something that she’ll love.

The premise of this story is very good, but was a bit rushed to make it happen at Christmas.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
A poor young widow with six little children, the youngest born after her husband died tragically. A 35 year old Amish bachelor, who just bought a big mansion in town. He is dating a Amish Teacher, and then??
The whole idea of this story is heartwarming, and loved the friendship that Ruth had with Mamie...who certainly was not the stereotype Amish. She will make you laugh, but is really a good friend, just a bit lazy.
This is one quick read, and can be read in an afternoon. Get ready for Christmas with a little love and romance....Amish style.
I received this book through Net Galley, and was not required to give a positive review.
