Overview

It’s been seven years since her husband died, but Helen Crouch is doing just fine. She’s selling her jams and canned goods at the bakery and making a tidy living. But her whole world goes topsy-turvy when a new family moves to town. Gabriel Gless has brought his children to Bliss Creek to escape the worldly influences in Indiana. Helen and Gabriel have so much in common—the loss of their beloved spouses, the experience of raising their families alone, their rock-solid faith—so why can’t they seem to speak without arguing?

And that’s not all that’s going on in Bliss Creek this summer. In the middle of a punishing drought, the community is faced with the decision to uproot their families and establish a new settlement. As families struggle to say goodbye, each one must find the faith to follow the Lord’s direction.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Since her husband's death seven years ago, Helen Crouch has been selling jams and canned goods to help support herself and her family. Enter Gabriel Gless, a widower and single father who has just moved to town. Romantic sparks should be flying, but the two just can't get along. More series Amish romance (after To Love and To Cherish and A Heart Made New).
From the Publisher
"Irvin does a wonderful job of weaving together the stories of various families in Bliss Creek. The reader can easily get caught up in the fast-paced plot and can immediately care about and identify with the residents of Bliss Creek. Irvin's writing is descriptive, informative, and reaches into the heart and soul of the reader. It is not necessary to be a fan of Amish fiction to enjoy Love's Journey Home"anyone who likes reading romances with a message will not be disappointed."
Susan E. Simpson, author of Ginger and the Bully

"Wow, if only all Amish fiction was as good as Love's Journey Home! The depth of the characters, all the interesting sub-plots were all good!"
Susan Karsten

"Kelly Irvin's Amish adventure-romance mix of storytelling makes a reading feller snap his suspenders."
—Alan Daugherty, News-Banner columnist

"Kelly Irvin writes so well about the Amish community, the reader will cheer for some characters and dislike others. Irvin's characters display the strength of the Amish and her settings are vivid."
—Jo Huddleston, johuddleston.com

"I loved the characters; they were down to earth, everyday people who each had their own struggles."
Cindy Loven, cindylovenreviews.blogspot.com

"Another heart-tugging story by Kelly Irvin."
