“Wow, does Mary Ellis deliver again! I completely fell in love with Amy, Nora’s sister in Living in Harmony and never thought I could enjoy getting to know Nora the same way in Love Comes to ParadiseI was wrong. Ms. Ellis has a way of turning words on a page into real life, living breathing people who I want to not only know, but become lifelong friends with. She truly has a gift of weaving spiritual truths into a great story that already has many surprises, twists and turns, and secrets. “
“Mary Ellis does a fantastic job of making the reader care about the people of Paradise.”

“Love Comes to Paradise is a wonderfully complex, yet refreshingly simple story of work, love, friendship, and faith among realistic Amish characters who struggle with genuine issues. In short, it's a perfect Mary Ellis novel: well-plotted, beautifully written, and positive without being saccharine. If you already love Amish fiction, this new novel will delight you. If you're a newcomer to the genre, the New Beginnings series is a great place to start.”

“As usual when I read a novel by Mary Ellis, I laughed and cried the whole way through. Ellis is a skilled storyteller and I like how she has researched different Amish in different areas. Best of all are the charactersrealistic and funny. Well done!"
