    Katie's Way

    Katie Miller finds herself moving to Pleasant Valley after her long planned on marriage falls thru. While her parents weren't really happy with her move her father pays the rent for one year allowing her to try and make a go of a quilt shop that she hopes will allow her to become financially secure. Her mother and sister come for the grand opening and Katie learns that her mother wants to leave her sixteen year old sister Rhoda with her to get her away from her wild rumspringa ways back home. Caleb Brand has a furniture shop next door to Katie's newly opened quilt shop and while he isn't overly happy with her being there he tries to make her welcome. But when his young niece Becky comes to work in his store he isn't sure that he wants Becky to become friends with Rhoda because he overheard the conversation about her wild ways. He also has issues from his past that causes him to try and guard his heart from Katie, but it seems God just might have other ideas. I loved this story. Most Amish women Katie's age are already married and raising children, but Katie is different. When the one she loved married someone else all she could do was leave home to try and start over. Starting over for her meant becoming independent because she figures she will never love anyone else. Caleb Brand is a man who distances himself from most people to keep anyone from getting inside his heart. Rumors from his past haunt him and as much as he tries to guard his heart sometimes the heart has other ideas, especially after that first unplanned kiss between him and Katie. The tension and banter that went on between the two make the story interesting. While I could go on about the relationship between the two the author gave us a few secondary stories that made the plot move along at a brisk pace. From the diverse group of quilters that met in the shop to the plans Katie has to grow her business each facet was interesting. I enjoyed seeing the sisterly bond grow between Katie and Rhoda as well. While this is the fifth book in Marta Perry's Pleasant Valley series it can easily be read as a stand alone work, for me I have only read a couple of books in the series and had no problems jumping right into this story. The author provides sufficient background information about the characters and town so that I didn't feel lost at all. Overall if you enjoy reading Amish stories with interesting characters, a fast moving plot, and a nice inspirational message then your certainly going to enjoy "Katie's Way."

    Magnificent Marta Perry provides another engaging Pleasant Valley tale

    the store next door to the daadi of Katie Miller. To get away from a failed romance when her Eli married Jessica, Katie relocated to open up a quilt shop. Caleb's concern turns to dismay as the shop next door becomes an in place for gossipy Amish and Englisch. Worse in his mind is his attraction to the kind quilter

    Strike three occurs when Katie's parents leave her troubled teenage sister Rhoda, whose rumored rumspringa activity is scandalous, with her. However, she begins to win over Caleb as a friend and perhaps more especially when he protects her from vandals who she assumes rejects her efforts to bring more business to Main Street.

    The fifth Pleasant Valley inspirational Amish romance (see Sarah's Gift and Anna's Return) is a superb contemporary that focuses on starting over for the protagonists, her sister and the storekeepers on Main St. Katie holds the charming storyline together; as she diligently tries to make her store a success while other storekeepers resent her; falls in love with Caleb who believes his ability to love ended with Mattie, and cares for her sister whose rep back home has been shredded. Magnificent Marta Perry provides another engaging Pleasant Valley tale.
