The Wonder of Your Love by Beth Wiseman is a fictional story about an Amish widow in modern day. The main character,Katie Anne, was betrayed by her husband who had an adulterous affair with a non-Amish woman, and then left her to live with this woman. Little did he know that Katie Anne was pregnant with their only child, but he did not live long enough to find out because he was killed in an accident. Another Amish man (also a widower) is introduced in the story, and thus begins an interesting adventure of friendship, discovery, and opening up of old wounds when new information develops regarding Katie Anne's husband's mistress and details of his end of life is revealed. This story was sweet and romantic -if a little predicable, but not too much. The characters are well developed and the story flows very well and keeps the reader hooked. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an interesting sweet fictional read about modern day Amish and the struggles that they face (just like everyone else). God and faith are intertwined throughout the story, and it is an overall uplifting encouraging book. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.

Unknown to me, The Wonder of Your Love is the second book in a series, luckily I’m still able to follow the story even without reading the first one. Ok, so to make this easier, I’ll explain the plot first: Katie has given birth to a baby boy Jonas. She managed to be both a father and mother to him. Her husband died shortly after he leaves her to be with another woman. So she struggles not just with the heartbreak and loss but with also how she’d provide her baby’s needs and the dilemma of loving and trusting again. Martha, is her English neighbor who would later be her friend. They got along since both of them are widowed, neither have married and Martha’s just like a mother to Katie. She loved someone but never voice out her feelings to him until he left to help for his ailing son. When he didn’t come back, she thought he never felt anything for her. Eli is a man who’s youngest daughter just got married. He traveled and fend for himself since. He never planned to fall in love and get married since his wife died 17 years ago. This is a whole lot different from the books I’ve always read. I’m more unto Young Adult, but in this one, I’m faced with middle-aged characters, which isn’t a bad thing at all. I love although not all of the characters. Their backstories are interesting and are truly a basis to their future decisions in life. They are also genuine with real emotions, hurts and worries. The author’s writing style kept me turning the pages. She has the tendency to make such inner conflicts in her characters and yet still manage to glue it all together. It also seemed like there’s a never-ending twists and turns, and I never couldn’t figure out what the author wants to happen next. A book of friendship, forgiveness, faith, romance, love and trust, The Wonder of Your Love is a book that would make you realize things and gives hope to many of us. This is the first Amish book I’ve read and definitely not the last one. Highly recommended!!! Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com.

Katie Ann finds much joy and peace with her baby boy and is determined with God's help to build a life for her and her fatherless child. What a great story, second chances and faith in this wonderful story. This is not just a book the, but can be read as a stand alone, although after reading this one, I can't wait to go back and read it again. This is a charming story of faith, friendship, and love. It's my favorite book of Beth Wiseman and I love this novel. I highly recommend reading... They can not come out fast enough. It is just one of those stories that you wish never ended. After actually reading the entire book, it is clear that Beth Wiseman promotes a loving discipline that allows children to feel loved and accepted with a perfect combination of freedom and safety. What I like most about this book is its focus on nurturing imperfect yet cooperative and loving children. This is must read book in any way, and Beth Wiseman makes that very clear in his book. To suggest that these claims are made is simply pure fallacy. I will definitely recommend and plan to pass my copy on to other moms who are raising these young woman of the future. Life happens. The unexpected can occur in any of our lives at any time. Most of us are very cognizant of that fact, so much so that we may easily fall in our enemies trap. loved the short chapters with meaningful stories. I enjoyed the scripture verses and author's comments at the end of each chapter. This book was easily read but putting into application all of these thoughts will take time, my time. t's easy to relate to the authors as they openly share. I got a free copy of this on booksneeze, just for a review.

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book by Beth Wiseman. I'm not a fan of modern romances, though I must admit to enjoying Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, and I simply couldn't imagine what an Amish romance was going to be like. Instead, my trepidation turned into delight as I found myself being drawn into a beautifully told story with wonderful touches of humour and fun. Almost a comedy of manners, in fact, where the protagonists are Katie Ann, an Amish widow with a young baby and Eli, an Amish widower who has just seen his last child grow up and marry. Both expecting to remain single for the rest of their lives, they are faced with a bevy of well-meaning Amish and non-Amish friends who are intent on matchmaking. Add to the story a mystery over why Katie Ann's wayward and unfaithful late husband had bought a new house - was it for his long-suffering wife or for his mistress? - and Katie's delightful Englisch friend Martha, who has a tangled love-life of her own, and you have all the things needed for a thoroughly enjoyable book. I loved every page of it, and was desperately willing the story to end happily, so well and so engagingly were the characters drawn. Well done, Beth Wiseman - this book is a keeper !

Two people at very different stages in their lives will be brought together, then figure out if it is God's doing or simply coincidence. Katie Ann is an Amish widow struggling to raise her child. She struggles with being a single parent and she struggles with her relationship with God. Why is she alone? Why had her husband left her for someone else? Why would her son Jonas never know his father's love? While she tries to hide her sorrow and pain, Martha sees. Martha is an English neighbor who tries to help Katie Ann come to grips with the many, many changes she faces. The bond they form helps both women. Eli has raised his children and lost his wife, now he is ready for some time off and a new beginning. When he goes to Canaan, he is hoping for a vacation, some time for himself. Instead he meets Katie Ann. They quickly develop a friendship, but that is ok because neither thinks a romantic relationship would work. Really? They are at completely different places in life, but will there be more than they expect? Come visit Canaan, Colorado and find out. This book is interesting and well written. The characters and setting seem very real, and that attests to the care Beth Wiseman always takes in researching her Amish stories. This book will appeal to both individual and group readers. Individuals will enjoy figuring out what will happen next, and groups can delve into issues like trust, fidelity, love, faith, disappointment, and loss. Thank you very much to Litfuse for my review copy and the opportunity to be part of this blog tour.

Katie Ann is in an interesting place in her life. She was recently widowed and has a young child. Eli is in the exact opposite place. Having lost his wife years before in childbirth, he has successfully raised 6 children and is now ready to enjoy a retirement of sorts. When Katie Ann and Eli meet at a wedding sparks fly-but not the good kind. They slowly develop into friends. Even if their lives are not converging, they begin to feel an attraction to each other. The two of them must figure out what they truly want in life and decide whether that life is together. I've never read any Amish fiction before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was a rather interesting book. There a lot more twists and turns in the plot than I expected. Katie Ann and Eli both had very different but equally interesting back stories. I found Katie Ann's struggle with forgiveness to be particularly interesting. She seemed very real and human. As a mother, I also understood her anxiety involving her son. I can't even say how many times a night I would check on my young son. I still sometimes wake up and watch him breathe. These things really let me relate to Katie Ann on a level I didn't expect. Eli was a very steady man. I liked that he addressed the somewhat selfish seeming nature of his desire to enjoy his new child-less life. He was also very kind and patient. I also greatly enjoyed Martha. In some ways I felt she was a voice for the reader encouraging Katie Ann and Eli along the path to romance. While the book is sweet, it is never too much. There are plenty of conflicts and intrigue within the plot to keep things building to the end. This book managed to hold my interest throughout, and I will be sure to give Amish fiction a chance in the future. Book provided for review.

The lives of two very amazing women are about to be changed in very different ways. This is the time for second chances and for hope for new beginnings for both of them, if only their hearts remain open to the possibilities of God's answers to prayer. Katie Ann Stolzfus and her baby boy Jonas have spent the last several months trying to recover from two separate losses. The first was when Katie's husband, Ivan left her for an English woman and moved in with her. Just a few months later, Ivan would be killed in a tragic accident. She never told Ivan she was pregnant because she didn't want him coming home for that reason alone, since he left her in the first place. Katie isn't ready to open her heart again anytime soon at the prospect of love, because she can't stand feeling that heartache all over again, and lose her trust once more. Martha, her English neighbor has been assisting Katie with being neighborly since her husband left her. Not willing to give up any of her English ways, Katie and Martha have formed a mother/daughter like bond between them, looking after one another since they both are widows and neither have married. Martha did love a man, but never bothered to share her feelings with him before he left to go help his ailing son. She had hoped maybe he felt the same way as she did, but since he never moved back, she believed the feelings were only one sided on her part. Eli Detweiler has spent the last 17 years raising six of his own children as the last of his daughters is now finally married and out on her own. He now vows that since his wife death those 17 years ago, he's going to take some time and just travel and take care of his needs now. He hasn't wanted to replace his wife since he believed that he could never love again, but will God have other plans in store for Eli? In the newest novel, The Wonder of Your Love by Beth Wiseman, we enter the second novel in this series and see how two women struggle to find love again after losing it the first time. If only either one of them could be bold enough to convey their feelings to the men that come into the life, but they believe that there aren't any second chances for them, this late in life. However God has great intentions for them on His horizon and in His timing. I received this novel compliments of Litfuse Publicity for my honest review and feel in love with the robust character of Martha and the quiet resolve of Katie Ann. I see how both of them want what God has so richly promised, a man to love them whole heartily and be true, but sometimes they are the ones standing in the way. This is a story of second chances for those who feel they don't deserve them and for love to find a way home. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read the next one coming out in The Land of Canaan series.
