Amish romances are plentiful these days so it takes a special one to catch my eye. Patricia Davids's new book, The Farmer Next Door, is a gem that sparkled from the moment I picked it up. The author's humor, compassion, deep insights, and relevant plot make the Amish widow and widower theme fresh and exciting. The hero and heroine are imperfect human beings navigating between two worlds with unspoken longing for companionship and respect for their community. Unexpected plot twists jumped off the pages I was turning as quickly as I could read them. I found myself laughing at the antics of widow Faith Martin's alpacas and drawn into the struggles of widower neighbor Adrian Lapp. The emotional twists and turns of their romance left me sighing, smiling, and tearful. Their fears and spiritual struggles are described in a way guaranteed to ring true to readers who can learn much from their story of old lives set aside and new beginnings found. From the alpacas raised by the Amish heroine to the interactions with the Zooks, The Farmer Next Door is a delightful keeper.

This was a wonderful story to read. The characters were realistic and their story was quite touching. I found myself getting teary in several scenes. I enjoyed the story and am eager to read more from the series.

I love how Ms. Davids told the complete story and did not cheat the reader with an ending that left you wondering how the characters got there. Love, faith and perseverence is something I could read about again. And again.

5 Star All The Way! I love a good story about love, forgiveness, learning to trust again, and reconnecting with God. This book is about all of them. This book is a fast read and one that I picked up as often as I could. I loved all the characters in this book including an animal named Myrtle! The main characters Adrian Lapp and Widow Faith Martin will steal your hearts. When you place two hurting people together something is bound to happen. Both have vowed never to marry again. This was just a delightful read for me. I found myself laughing out loud when it came to Myrtle. I know you will too! The ending of this story had me crying. It just touched my heart so much as I'm sure it will yours. I have read five of this author's books so far. I am about to start on number six.
