Will Leah Fisher find love because of a buggy accident? Could love soften her heart so that she is able to see her answered prayers in Naomi Yoder or will she drive a wedge between her father and the only woman he has shown interest in since Elisabeth Fisher’s death?
Leah Fisher lost her mother ten years ago. She is rapidly approaching womanhood and the lack is becoming more difficult every day. Will she be able to recognize love when it’s right in front of her? Could love be the key to Leah opening her heart, making room for the woman her father intends to marry… or will she stubbornly cling to the memory of her own mother? Will Leah be able to let go of her own ideas and realize that God truly does know best for her or will she allow love to slip through her fingers, destroying Samuel Fisher and Naomi Yoder’s happiness at the same time? – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
A Mother for Leah is a story about finding love and joy again after an unexpected tragedy rocks an Amish family’s life. Sweet, compelling, and filled with a charming cast of characters who will resonate with readers of all ages. ~ Suzanne Woods Fisher, bestselling author of The Quieting
Rachel L Miller writes sweet Amish romance with a focus on faith, family and friendship.
She feels very strongly that God has led her to live a simpler lifestyle; thus her deep kinship with the plain people. She enjoys spending time with her family and doing fun, simple things like swimming, making sun tea, sitting outside watching the sunrise or listening to rain fall on the tin roof.
Rachel enjoys writing Amish fiction and hopes that the purity of her stories will allow God’s message to shine through more clearly. She also writes Contemporary Inspirational Romance – and with all of her stories she focuses on presenting romance the way God intended it to be.
A Mother for Leah is everything you like about Amish fiction. Faith, community, and sweet romance. There were a couple of romances going on and they were oh, so sweet. The community atmosphere made me want to take a vacation to Amish country. However, the slow pace of Amish life is not without its problems. Leah lost her mother at a young age and is slowly entering adulthood without the aid of a mother.
My heart ached for Leah. I can’t imagine what it would be like to navigate womanhood without the guidance of a mom. Although Leah has sisters and relatives who wish to help, it’s just not the same. Yet she still finds a sweetheart in Jacob.
The thing I liked the most about this book is it will be a part of a series. The way it ended you know that all is not resolved and more of the Fisher family is yet to come.
