Overview

Seek Me with All Your Heart (Land of Canaan Series #1) by Beth Wiseman

What would cause the Amish to move to Colorado, leaving family and friends behind?

Some Amish are making the trek to Colorado for cheaper land. Others are fleeing strict bishops with long memories.

For Emily Detweiler and her family, the move is more personal. Tragedy struck Emily in Ohio, shaking loose everything she believed was firm, including her faith. Her family took the bold step of leaving Ohio to resettle in a small Amish community in Canaan, Colorado, where they hope the distance will help erase painful memories.

David Stoltzfus's family moved to Colorado for reasons he doesn't understand. But Canaan is turning out to be something other than the promised land they all anticipated. Fearing that a health condition will cut his life short, David plans to return home to Paradise, Pennsylvania, as soon as he can. But then he meets Emily, who stirs feelings in his heart despite his apprehension about the future.

Emily's growing love for David surprises her, but she fears that he will find out the truth about her past and reject her. But what if the truth is that they are made for each other? And that God longs to give them the desires of their hearts if only they will seek Him first?

Beth Wiseman has done it again. This book, the first in the Land of Canaan Series is a wonderful read. I found I didn't want to put it down. Beth has taken characters from the Daughters of Paradise series and moved then to Colorado to a fresh beginning. I love the fact that each books stands on its own, but also compliments each other. It is refreshing to read about a character and be able to follow that character throught out the series and into another series. Lillian and Samuel have moved to the property that Jonas bought online before he passed away. They are starting fresh in a strange new land. I love the new characters and only wish that Jonas was still around to carry on a conversation with Martha. That would be a book in itself. The characters are real and you find yourself engrossed in their lives and hoping that everything works out for each of them. Sometimes what starts out as sorrowful ends with a lesson of God's Love. When one door closes, there is always another that opens for us, if only we are willing to look for it. It is wonderfully written and I only wish that Beth wrote faster, I can hardly wait for the next in the series. What other trials await Lillian and Samuel?

Seek Me With All Your Heart is the first book in what promises to be an exciting new Amish series title A Land of Canaan. What made this story unique for me was the fact that it is set in Colorado. Several amish families are headed west hoping for a new start. Some are moving because they are looking for cheap land, while others are leaving hurtful pasts behind hoping for a fresh start. The main story revolves around Emily Detweiler and David Stoltzfus. The two have issues from their past, each thinking that they are unworthy, but as their characters blossom and develop throughout the story, they realize God has a plan for them. This book was a quick easy read filled with plenty of secondary characters to keep you entertained. Fans of Amish fiction will definitely be drawn to this story, but I think that anyone looking for a good clean read with an uplifting message would enjoy it as well. I was provided a copy of this book by Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.

Beth has a way with words of making you think that the characters in the book are your friends. I have been addicted to Amish books for a along time now and can't get enough of them. I loved the daughters of the promise now this new series looks promising also.

While Ms. Wiseman books are nice easy read, they are very predictable in their plots. It is the same plot every time.... some one i ill, or in distress, they have lost their way with God, an as always they are suddenly well no longer in distress an have found God yet again. One new person in Ms Wiseman book is Martha the older woman that is cranky an rude, but also having a soft heart. She made the book endurable..... otherwise the book is flat. There is no suspense to her stories. She has become very predictable in her writing.
