4.5 out of 5 stars! Joshua and Rebekah are both young Amish widowers who have kids (with one more on the way) and have known each other for a long time (Joshua was the best friend of Rebekah’s husband), but after Joshua’s wife passed away four years prior the families had grown apart from one another. Not long after another tragedy brings them back together, Joshua (with the encouragement from his mother) proposes to Rebekah. They bring their lives together not out of love but to help one another. Yet they both are holding secrets from each other, will they be able to overcome them to become a happy family that they both desire/deserve? Or will their secrets end up hurting them both in the long run? I was looking for an engaging Amish romance and I found one in this enticing novel! As I read it in one day! All of the characters (Rebekah, Joshua, and their children) were all charming and their story was so intriguing that I could NOT get enough of it! It could be why I was a bit disappointed that the ending finished as it did as I felt it could have been longer and/or Ms. Brown could have showed a greater relationship wrap-up between Joshua and Rebekah if there was a bit more to the scene when they were delivering of their boppli. Nevertheless, I found Joshua and Rebekah’s relationship to be a sweet hesitant romance that was enjoyable to witness as their love grew for one another. While taking on major story topics, you see how this considerate couple brings their families together and slowly find that who they really need out of life is one another. They captivated me with their love story. I’m so happy they got together! I recommend this novel to those hoping to find a riveting sweet Amish romance! Review By: From Me to You ...

Jo Ann Brown tells a truly wonderful story of trust broken, faith and second chances at love. Blended families are a bleasing from God. A heart can always grow to fit many!

I love these Amish romances from Harlequin. There is just something heartwarming and reaffirming about the goodness in the world - the simple life and dedication to family, community and God. Rebekah’s first marriage proves though that even in an Amish life there are still problems. She’s hesitant to trust a man again but realizes that marriage to Joshua is the best thing for her kids. And spending time with a man that has such a good heart goes a long way to reminding her that there are worthy men in the world. Joshua doesn’t understand why Rebekah is so skittish but he realizes that having a strong, caring woman in the house full time is doing wonderful things for his family. But he finds it very hard to reconcile moving on from his first wife who he loved very much. Their private battles could be true for anyone – Amish or not. And the glimpse into their community and beliefs just adds extra heart to an already touching story of two people deciding if they can let go of the past and move forward together.

It didn’t take long for me to begin walking in Rebekah Burkholder’s shoes and become absorbed in her life and her darling three year old Sammy. When Joshua Stoltzfus’s family badgers him to remarry he thinks of Rebekah a recent widow and decides he might as well help the both of them. Rebekah was married to one of Joshua’s best friends and he know he can never fill his shoes or replace her love for him, he is also three years widowed and still madly in love with his deceased wife. Rebekah is keeping secrets from her new husband, and he has noticed how she flinches from his touch, will he regret his decision? His family of two sons and a daughter welcome Rebekah and Sammy and love they way the house has cleaned up and the mouth-watering meals that they are now enjoying. Will all of this come to an end because of Rebekah’s past? Will his children decide they don’t want her in their live as a mother? Come and enjoy this really sweet, page-turning read. I’m so glad I turned the first cover. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
