    Highly recommended

    A great story of hope and love found in the Amish county. Such a simple and wonderful story and life. The scripture references are wonderful. Love these books.

    I have read every book of Amish fiction I could find. I am a huge fan of the genre. This is by far the best Amish fiction I have read.

    I have read every book of Amish fiction I could find. I am a huge fan of the genre. This is by far the best Amish fiction I have read.
    Hannah is a young widow. Seth is a young widower. Both are more than a little stubborn. Though Hannah moves in with her sister and her husband, the Deacon, will she soften around the edges enough to allow love to happen? Not if the Deacon has anything to do with it. He never has liked the audacious woman. He definitely does not want his brother, Seth, to fall in love with her. Just when the seeds of love are planted, she decides to move back home with her brother. Will she follow her head or her heart? Will Seth finally admit his feelings for her? Can the Deacon accept her for who she is-a tomboy and business woman with a big heart who can't cook well?
    There is depth to the plot and characters. Though, you feel you know where the plot is going, there is always a dash of doubt. Will the story line take a turn? I empathized with the characters-except for Simon. I wanted to read this straight through. Unfortunately, life got in the way. I read that this is going to be turned into a series! Do not pass up this masterfully written book!

    Excellent

    This was the first one of her books I had read and she gave me a whole new look at a widow in the Amish community, one who chose to do things on her own. Must read.

    This is a very good Amish love story. I had trouble putting the book down. There are 2 other books in this series. All 3 books are good books.

    Wonderful story!

    Mary Ellis writes characters with depth, making them seem so real. Since purchasing this book, I have read every book in this series and all of the books in her second series. Bonus Amish recipes at the back of the books, along with discussion questions, great for a book club.

    Charming cozy story from an author with over 15 others

    No grafic violence and sex potty mouth to offend the reader please remember that this sweet tale is a romance and like all happy ever after romance is not realistic. For a true and exciting read The Budget a weekly national newspaper where scribes from local Amish and Mennonite meetings and "churches" report what is happening at church school with frolics relief missions receipes to feed fsmilies of twelve. And an apoeal for "cards" to pay for hospital bills for a community with out public aid or S.S. or hospitalization insurance. A reak world. M.A.

    A Widows Hope, by Mary Ellis

    A WIDOWS HOPE, BY MARY ELLIS
    What do you get when you take an independent Amish widow named Hannah, and a stubborn Amish widower named Seth? You get a book that is interesting and entertaining. Hannah loves being Amish but sometimes does things that can get her into trouble. At the risk of being shunned, she sells her farm to her brother and moves to another state. There she tries hard to help her sister who is ill and is having trouble taking care of her own family.
    If you enjoy reading books about the Amish this one you will love. The author is talented and I love how she leads us to realize it does not matter if you are Amish, or English, we all have problems. We just handle them differently.

    Excellent book and easy read.

    A great read!

    A WIDOW'S HOPE by Mary Ellis is a Christan Romance Fiction. This is a wonderful book. The story is wonderful, it's a heartwarming story with Amish faith, family and friends. A WIDOW'S HOPE shows how the Amish and English community comes together during a crisis. The characters have difficulties relating there true feelings for each other, but their trust in God leads them together. I highly recommend this book.
