About the Author

Emma Miller lives quietly in her old farmhouse in rural Delaware amid fertile fields and lush woodlands. Fortunate enough to be born into a family of strong faith, she grew up on a dairy farm, surrounded by loving parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Emma was educated in local schools, and once taught in an Amish schoolhouse much like the one at Seven Poplars. When she's not caring for her large family, reading and writing are her favorite pastimes.

I was mesmerized by Emma Miller's 4th book in the Amish Matchmaker series. Imagining the anguish a widow who is grieving the loss of her husband and young daughter was really difficult. I have not lost a husband or daughter, but I certainly would never want to have to go through such pain. I have lost a husband through divorce however, and that includes a grief process as well. There were many emotional hurdles to overcome when I married my incredibly wonderful second husband. I willingly joined in fellowship with another denomination with my husband even after having served as a pastor's wife previously, and the differences between the Mennonites and Amish are much greater than what I experienced in my decision-making process. I love reading Amish fiction. The characters in this story were all lovable although there was one character that was trying on Leah's nerves. I have definitely had relationships with women who interfered in other people's business as this one also another issue explored in the book. I would like to recommend this novel to those lovers of Amish and Christian fiction. My rating for this novel is 5 stars. I received a copy of this book from netgalley and the publisher. A positive review was not required. All opinions expressed are my own.

This is a book of courage, compassion, frivolity and burdens yet you have restoration of the heart with all of that. You have Leah, a widow who lost her husband and child - what a loss - a heart wrenching loss - and she has to move on from that - how do you move on from that? She takes one step at a time and it leaves scars and fears behind - then you have Thomas who was turned down on a proposal - but how can you take him seriously when he is a player - you know what I mean? Then there is a matchmaker - can they really get along? can they find something in each other to find that spark? If they find that spark can they do something about it with the scars from their past? How does GOD work in their lives each step of the way and do they listen? man is this book something else - how it just moves you - in the highest levels of your heart. I received a copy of the book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was another delightful addition to the Amish Matchmaker series. It is filled with all of our usual secondary character's and is written with Ms Milller's usual light touch, a good bit of comedy and enough tragedy to really pluck at your heart-strings. I have to admit that while reading this book I was torn in two different directions. This book is about a former Amish girl, Leah, that turned Mennonite for her late husband. They went on a mission to the jungle and there she lost her baby and her husband to a fever. She travels home and decides that she would like to re-marry; she wants an older widower with children so she can have a ready made family (and one or two of her own) and not take a chance on losing her heart again. But destiny steps in when she goes to the local Amish matchmaker who disregards what Leah wants and gives her what she so desperately needs. And that is love with a wonderful man and a second chance at happiness. I love the well drawn character's, the well thought out plot-lines, the emotional roller coaster that reading this book provided and the warmth I find every time I find myself in Seven Poplars. I can never wait for the next book to come out! *ARC supplied by publisher.
