Where has the time gone?  Only yesterday, I was a young woman with a husband and seven beautiful children, and today, I'm widowed and nearly fifty.   In another month, there would only be her youngest daughter, Susanna, and her foster son, Irwin, left to share the big farmhouse.  Being 52 years old myself, this book seems even more personal and meaningful to me.  I remarried at age 44 to a man 9 years older than myself; we didn't have a huge faith issue as Hannah and Albert do.   Hannah is Amish and Albert is Mennonite and works as the local   veterinarian.  He drives a truck and has electricity in his home, all "no-no's" for the Amish according to the Ordnung.  If Hannah leaves her faith, she will be shunned as she has formerly joined the Amish church.   They certainly seem to have some insurmountable problems, but they are in love, pure and simple.  What can they do????  The book also addresses the adult special needs daughter of Hannah:  Susanna.  Susanna is also in love with another special needs Amish young man.   They want to marry and Hannah feels it is an impossibility.   Is it?   With God, all things are possible.   Maybe love can bloom for several people in the story, if they will only open their hearts and minds to the possibilities and hopes for the future instead of looking at the problems and negatives.  Finding another partner later in life has been important to my husband and I.  We both were lonely and God prepared a loving relationship for us together.   I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers.    I received a free pdf version of netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

I truly enjoyed all the books in this series. They are well-written, interesting and leave you feeling good and peaceful. You are transported into a community that is loving and caring, while still having its share of everyday challenges and heartbreaks. The difference is that the solutions are arrived at in inspiring ways that leave you with a spiritual uplift. I highly recommend every book in the series and hope there will be more.

Hannah’s Courtship Emma Miller Book Summary: Amish widow Hannah Yoder never intended to marry again. Yet when her friendship with veterinarian Albert Hartman begins to bloom into something more, Hannah wonders if perhaps she's finally ready for a new love. Albert waited his whole life to find the right woman, only to realize Hannah was there all along. But there's more than their friendship to consider. Albert is a Mennonite, born-and-bred, and Hannah cannot—will not—leave her Amish faith, not even for him. Does Albert have the courage to give up his modern life for Hannah…and will Hannah have the courage to let him? ¿Hannah's Daughters: Seeking love, family and faith in Amish country Review: When I first got the book I was excited. Than I started to read it and had mixed feelings. Than about page 7 I got more interested than I ever thought I would. Ms. Miller did a fantastic job of mixing the themes of maturity and liveliness. At no time did I dwell on Hannah being a mother of grown children or a grandmother. The romance was complicated in the eyes of the Amish religion. I really liked the tie in with Albert’s nephew and Hannah’s daughter Grace. It makes me long to read all the previous books. Someday I hope to do that .  I would like to thank Net Galley and Harlequin for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

4 STARS Hannah's Courtship is book #9 in the series. I have only read a few books of this series but I have liked all of them that I have read. The Characters and their stories draws me in right away. They are good clean charming stories. Hannah has eight daughters. The youngest Susanna has down syndrome. All her daughters are almost married except Susanna. Hannah has been a widow for many years. She teaches school at the Amish school. Hannah is Amish. Albert Hartman is a veterinarian. He is a single 55 year old man. Albert is a Mennonite. He was a friend to Hannah's husband. He rescues Susanna and King David late one night. Albert's father just died two months ago. He now has a lot of time on his hand. He decides he needs a new hobby with Hannah's help. Susanna works with a Amish library. She likes King David and wants to be courted and married like her older sisters. She is 21 but has a much younger mind. Hasn't been disobedient till now. David King is a newer resident in their Amish church. He has down syndrome too. Susanna calls him King David. He lives with his parents too. He too wants to court Susanna. Hannah has tried to tell Susanna that she can't get married like her sisters. Albert wants to court Hannah when he realizes how much her friendship has meant to him. But they are of a different religion. Hannah won't leave her church. If she does her daughters would have to shun her. Setting is a Amish community farm country. It is a good clean read. Lots of drama, fast read. Did not want to put it down. I would like to catch up and read the books in this series I have missed. I would look for more books by Emma Miller in the future. I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review by Netgalley.

This appears to be the last book in the series. We have followed and fell in love with her daughters and sons in-laws and now Hannah herself get the chance to find love. What I liked: Now that all her daughters but Susanna are married Hannah only has Susanna to worry about. But the vet Albert starts to become her friend the problem is he is not Amish. I enjoyed how both worked through the issues facing them as their relationship grew. I also enjoyed how Susanna got a happy ending as well. What I did not like: I always have trouble believing that someone could enter the Amish way of life so easily.      Overall this was a good book and I felt it was a good ending to a good series.

After many books about Hannah's Daughters, Amish widow Hannah finally get her own story (though she shares with Susanna, her daughter who has Downs). The story tells a bit about her past before she married Jonas and catches readers of the Hannah's Daughters series up with several if not all of her daughters since their books. This story finds Hannah dealing with her 21 year old daughter, Susanna, want to "walk out with" (or date in English terms)her friend David King who also has Downs. In addition, she is feeling lonely with most of her children married or getting married. Local vet Albert who is a Mennonite is also lonely following the death of his father. Hannah and Albert have been friends for years and explore whether they have stronger feelings and the difference in their religion. Although part of a series, it can be read alone. In spite of reading all the previous books, I do find myself wanting to go back and read several again.

Looking back over her life, Hannah Yoder could see how blessed she's been. She had married Jonas, the love of her life, born a house full of daughters, five of whom are presently married with Rebecca preparing to be married in the Fall. That left her with Susanna, her special Down's Syndrome child, and Irwin, her foster son. She lived in a two-hundred-year-old farmhouse on a prosperous farm in an Old Order Amish community in Delaware. Now she was a widow at fifty. To supplement the farm's income and to remain somewhat self-sufficient, she has taught in the local Amish school for the past five years. She is surrounded by good friends, family and a close-knit community. But even with all that, sometimes she felt something was missing. Albert Hartman was Seven Poplar's veterinarian. He had worked hard to study for and establish his practice in this community. Time has slipped by before he'd hardly noticed, and now he was in his mid-fifties, unmarried and alone, only months after his father had passed. He loved his work, sharing the responsibilities with his nephew John, but the spark had gone out from his life. What was all that effort for anyway? What did he have to live for? John and his wife Grace had suggested he take up a hobby. He gave it some thought and felt he would enjoy raising alpacas for fun.   The author, Emma Miller, has given her readers an intriguing glimpse into an Amish community and how they handle unique circumstances. Some of her other books are about Hannah's daughters: Courting Ruth, Miriam's Heart, Anna's Gift, Leah's Choice, Redeeming Grace, Johanna's Bridegroom, and Rebecca's Christmas Gift. With deep insight into human nature, first hand acquaintance with country life in Delaware, and understanding the special dynamics that accompany large families, this story stirred my heart. I could feel with Hannah the ache of a mother's heart over a special child with the desire to hold on too tightly, and to be overly protective.  What I found most compelling about this story was the sweet romance that developed between Hannah and Albert. Hannah is wise and kind, and Albert is strong, responsible and head over heels in love with her. It was heartwarming to read just to what lengths he would go to marry her. If you enjoy reading Amish books and good romance stories, then you will love this book.  Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary review copy of this book from NetGalley on behalf of Harlequin Love Inspired.
