Overview

Butterfly Garden by Annette Blair

Amishwoman Sara Lapp, all but shunned for studying with the English doctor to become a midwife, is shocked that, after months of waiting, her first call to tend a birth comes from self-appointed outcast Mad Adam Zuckerman. For his wife's sake, Sara boldly tells Adam that he is killing Abby with so many babies so close, but Abby is already dead.

Adam did not call Sara to tend the birth, but to give her his children. Though Sara knows Abby's girls belong with their father, how can she leave them with a man who seems not to care for them? As much as she loves and wants the girls, she decides that she will only take them long enough to teach Adam to love them.

As a child Adam heard the words, "I do this because I love you," with his father's every abuse. Adam is afraid to love his children, afraid that in doing so, he will hurt them. Without Abby to protect them, Adam must find someone else, and he can think of only one woman strong and brave enough, Spinster Sara Lapp.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. An Amish midwife who annoys the elders by working with the non Amish doctor turns a sleepy Ohio Amish Community on its ears with her stubbornness. Not to mention one man the rest of the world calls Mad Adam Zuckerman, and with good reason. Outstanding.

I enjoyed this book and it was a good read. The only problem is it wasn't pure Amish it had some parts that made my cheeks blush with the sexual content. So if you are looking for the pure Amish romances that aren't so forward with sex then you may not want to read this one. If you are ok with having your cheeks blush then this is your book.

If you are looking for an Amish story this is not it. I can't imagine why the author choose an Amish setting for this story.

I enjoyed the book as a whole but was surprised at the sexual parts of the book. The sensual parts were not anything that a normal married couple does not do. I don't think I would let my 13 year old granddaughter read "Butterfly Garden". Just was not what I was expecting from an Amish book.
