Second Chance Amish Bride by Marta Perry

An Amish Nanny

Caring for her late cousin's young kinder is Jessie Miller's duty—even if it means seeing their father again. Years ago, she thought Caleb King might be her husband—until he met her cousin and Jessie's dream was cut short. Laid up with a broken leg and a demanding dairy farm, Caleb needs her. But Caleb wants no woman around…and no reminder of the wife who abandoned her family before her death. Especially since he fears Jessie will throw a wrench in his plan to remain a single dad. She's gentle and kind, and if Caleb isn't careful, she may be just what his little Amish family needs.

An engaging story. This is going to be a great series, as Marta does a wonderful job of pulling you into the story. She lets you see how strong, determined and full of faith Jessie is. The thing is she needs to forgive herself for her cousin's mistakes, that she couldn't keep her from making, as she is trying to help Caleb not make some mistakes with his children. Yep, a must read!

A thought provoking story about forgiveness and its effects on a person, and those around them. I have been fascinated by the Amish Love Inspired stories, the culture, the beliefs, the language, I find it intriguing. Second Chance Amish Bride gives a glimpse of the way of living and forgiving. The Amish believe that you are forgiven with the same measure you forgive to others. Something to ponder. Caleb King is headstrong and prideful. To admit that he needs help is not easy to him, to talk about his late wife and the mistakes she made, and how she broke his heart are too painful still years after. His children are hiding their sorrow and doubts to protect their loving father, there's a lot of healing still needed to happen and wounds that need to be cleaned to be able to mend them. Jessie Miller has the biggest heart and giving, kind soul. She feels responsible for the action and choices her younger cousin, Caleb's wife, made while alive. Caleb once broke her heart, is there now a chance for a new beginning, forgiveness, and grace for all? The story is well written with a fluent flow and events changing with a tempo that it holds the interest. All the characters, from the children to the adults, secondary and the primary, were well thought out and had their own temperament and characteristics. It was easy to like them and relate to them. The children were acting a little advanced for their age, I assumed they were years older than the revealed ages, but maybe they grow faster in that element. I am not sure what I think about the writing in the partially Amish language or writing in any dialect for that matter. If the characters were not speaking English with each other at all, to partially use some terms in the story from the original language isn't then necessary, in my opinion. I think that would be the thing that I could get tired of with these Amish stories if anything. Learning to forgive, learning to move on, to trust your heart, and daring to open it again to love and embrace the good memories, are some of the lessons Caleb and Jessie have to learn to be able to build a future together. ~ Four Spoons

The theme of this story is forgiveness and guilt, and they have compounded so that all have been touched by the hurt. The author has done a great job of showing just how the lack of forgiveness and keeping a grudge is affecting all of those around you, especially the young and impressionable. This book does take place in Amish Country, but it could be anywhere, an immature Mom up and leaves her family. Now the people that raised her and the family she left are and have been hurting and each blaming themselves. The ironic part of this Amish family is that it seems that history keeps repeating itself in their home, but why? Again the same as in all communities, there are those few with loose lips, and it is unexpected here, but does happen. There are some really sad moments here, and it will tear at your heart, then again there are some sweet and cute moments. This is a read that goes fast, but one that you want to get to the end with for the answers, but them once arrived, there is a sense of loss. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
