Among the New-new Order Amish of Oakland, Maryland, children bring precious hope, joy and sometimes an unexpected second chance at love . . .

For Amish widower Phillip Baker, providing for his family in the wake of his wife's death means back-breaking work and renewed dedication to his faith. Still, his strength can t help him relate to his little son s struggles. It seems a godsend when new doctor Emily White is able to treat Gabe s shyness and fear even as she helps heal him. But no matter how strongly Phillip is drawn to the caring Englisher from the city, their differences may be too great to overcome . . .

Reeling from her own tragic loss, Emily keeps loneliness at bay through her clinic work. Somehow, though, Gabe and his gentle, sad-eyed father are making her want to risk opening her heart again. But can she find acceptance in their Plain world and a way to turn their separate lives into a family forever? . . .

I very much enjoyed this story by Loree Lough. This is the first Amish book I’ve read that featured the lifestyle of the “New Order Amish”. It was interesting to learn how they combine acceptance of using some modern conveniences with their “old order” religious beliefs, and how they interact with those other Amish orders who still hold to the old ways. But the heart of this story is about Gabe, a young Amish boy who is seriously ill and the relationship that develops between his Amish dad and the English doctor who is treating him. The author did a great job of conveying a range of emotions in this story—love, sadness, hope, sorrow, acceptance—and making me feel as if I really knew the characters in this story. I’ll look forward to reading the next book in this series. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I loved this book. This is certainly a different Amish read and I can relate to Gabe the little boy that is featured in this story. Like him I too had to have heart surgery but I think I was a couple of years younger than him. You see, I had two holes in my heart that needed patched. They patched it but the patches weren't big enough so now I have a slight heart murmur but by the Grace of God I am still going. The mother in this story kind of reminds me of my own mother in law. She can't do something nice without throwing it back into our faces about it. Only difference is she doesnt have a Bishop to talk to like Sarah did. I didn't like Sarah for that reason. Loree is an excellent author. I love the way she can write and at the same time pull you into her stories like this one. I love this one because as I said at the beginning. Gabe. Gabe is a pretty special little boy and he made me relive that part of my life that I apparently had shut out. I love his sweet disposition. Made me want to put my arms around him like Emily did and tell him that everything would be ok. God takes excellent care of us doesn't He? He has me and I thank him everyday. Do you thank God for all He's done for you? My thanks to Netgalley for a complimentary copy. NO compensations were received. All opinions are my own.

All He’ll Ever Need is book one in the A Little Child Shall Lead Them romance series by Loree Lough. Gabe is a very smart and precocious 4-yr-old who’s been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Phillip Baker is a New Order Amish widower and father of four-year-old Gabe. Phillip is a refreshing Amish male character because he challenges the traditional Amish rules. Emily White is a dedicated doctor who’s known heartache in the past. She’s torn by her attraction to Phillip, the father of her young patient. Somehow these three must overcome disapproval from their families and communities to find healing for Gabe and love for them all. Loree Lough chose to write about the Amish from the less traditional viewpoint of the New Order Amish. I found this very interesting. Even though the New Order Amish rules are more relaxed, I think the stance taken by Phillip was too advanced and unrealistic for an Amish man. Phillip’s immediate reaction to Emily was surprising, the Amish are usually more standoffish, especially with Englishers. Overall, I enjoyed All He’ll Ever Need and rate it 3 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book to readers of chaste Christian romance, especially Amish romance. If you’re adverse to religious themes, this is not the book for you. My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

This is a new to me author. I wanted to read this book, because it was Amish fiction and I am always open to new authors. It was definitely different from any other Amish book I have ever read. Phillip is New Order Amish, which means he can drive a car. He is also a widower. His little boy, Gabe, is a genius with a heart condition. Emily is the doctor who is treating Gabe after he is hospitalized. Because of a couple glances at each other and 1 meal at a cafe near the hospital to discuss Gabe's condition, there is gossip about the two of them having an inappropriate relationship. Sarah, Phillip's mother was already having the Bishop talk to him. This relationship moved super quick and events just seemed to fall in place conveniently. But I will more than likely read the next book in the series. I would recommend if you are looking for a clean romance. Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington for the ARC.
