Annie Shirack is trying to fight her feelings for David Plank, a young Amish man who's struggling with an aggressive case of Hodgkin's lymphoma. David loves Annie too much to let her into his life, only, he fears, to leave her.

When a homeless young woman named Charisma and her two-year-old daughter, Gracie, show up in Bliss Creek, Annie welcomes them into the Shirack household and tries to help them establish a new life. But all the good deeds in the world can't change the ache in Annie's heart...or help her forget the man she loves.

A HEART MADE NEW by Kelly Irvin is an interesting inspirational Amish fiction set in a Kansas Amish Community.Book 2 in "The Bliss Creek Amish" series, but can be read as a stand alone. See,"To Love and Cherish". While, struggles with Hodgkin’s lymphoma,David Plank loves Annie Shirack,but refuses to commit to his feelings due to an uncertain future. Filled with emotional turmoil,Amish community,faith,love,fear,suspense,dreams,romance,and a few twists and turns you want see coming. WOW! What a emotional and amazing story with an intriguing plot and characters who will steal your heart. It will not take you long to come to love this family with all their tragedy and triumph and the community. I enjoy Amish reads and this was no exception. This is my first my this author, but will not my last. She draws the reader into her characters lives and holds them there. A must read for anyone who enjoys community,faith, the Amish community,suspense,romance and an emotional story of faith,healing and heartwarming.

This Amish story has twists and turns to keep you turning pages and also tangles to make you believe the characters are real. Several of the Amish in this story work in town where they are exposed to the local Englisch residents who don't understand Amish standards. This story gives the reader family, relationships, heartache, and forgiveness. A couple of the characters in the story you love at times and then at other times, you'd like to shake some sense into them. It's a good read with strong, memorable characters.

A Heart Made New Kelly Irwin ©2012 Harvest House Publishers ISBN 978-0-7369-4383-3 (pbk) (The Bliss Creek Amish, bk. 2) Annie Shirack, Miriam Yoder and Planks Pastry and Pie shop owner, Sadie Plank are witnesses when a frightened young man robs the shop. The police say they must testify against the thief, who was apprehended in minutes. As Amish, the women easily forgive and refuse to testify in an ‘Englischer’ court. The town mayor, Gwendolyn Haag, also in the shop when the robber shot out the door and windows of the place, insists the women must testify against the young man. The book opens with this exciting scene and like all good writing, tension then fills nearly every page of the story. Annie loves Sadie’s son, David, who is receiving chemotherapy for cancer. David meets Willow, a single mother. Her daughter, Kinsey is also fighting cancer. Miriam loves Annie’s brother, Josiah, the ‘bad boy’ of the Amish group. Josiah fights his attraction for Sarah, who wants to join the ‘Plain people’. Is Sarah for real? Sergeant Dylan Parker is attracted to Annie, but knows the Amish don’t marry outside the clan. Annie meets the robber’s pregnant girlfriend, Charisma Chiasson and three –year old daughter, Grace. She takes them home. Money is tight in the household but Annie knows she must help the mixed up young woman. More complications to a gripping tale! The story explains the Amish as normal people who gossip, love each other, try to obey the rules and live simple lives. A well-written story.
