Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Anita is returning home to live with her brother, Amos, and his family in Lancaster County. She has just lost her husband in a tragic buggy accident and she is expecting their first child. Saddened at her loss, she is taken by surprise to discover that everyone in her brother’s community has thought about matching her up with another husband. Amongst the Amish, that is not uncommon. But Anita loved her husband and, although she understands that he is now in a better place, she mourns her loss. In short, she’s not ready to find another husband. And, she’s quite angered by her brother’s insistence and interference. Samantha Price’s novel, Amish Widow’s Hope: Expectant Amish Widows Book 1, is a tender story about love, loss and the strong sense of community that makes the Amish so special. In a community that works together and helps each other out, it is a pleasant relief to find an independent woman, one who’s not afraid to speak her mind and stand up for herself. The character of Anita is that of a strong woman; her grief is real and the reader can certainly feel compassion for her. As the plot develops, the reader will feel Anita’s outrage at having her life arranged for her. The story is filled with an interesting collage of characters that help develop the plot. It is difficult to determine who is the antagonist when everyone seems so good and caring. Amos does come across as a bit of a brute earlier in the novel, only to cave in under pressure from his wife and his sister. A gentle and clean read.

Delightful page-turner with lots of family love, and all the challenges that go along with family life, and promises of a new beginning, especially for the grieving widow Anita Garber. When the story begins we journey with her from the home she made with her deceased husband to her brother’s home in the Lancaster PA area. Her brother Amos seems rather harsh, and abrupt with his family, and seems his desire is to see his recently widowed sister married. I had mixed vibes with Amos, but he does seem to have his sister’s welfare as his primary concern. This is one fast read, and when it was over I had a sense of loss, I wanted to stay with these new found friends! I received this book through Net Galley and the Author Samantha Price, and was not required to give a positive review.
