Author Molly Jabber has written a sweet Christian fiction with the newest installment in her The Keepsake Pocket Quilt Series. I was able to read it in one afternoon and enjoyed it.
This is the story of Amish girl Becca Yost. She was humiliated after her fiancé stood her up at the altar. Not wanting to stay in her home town, she goes to visit her sister, Ruth. Ruth moved away when she got married and became Mennonite.
It is also the story of Englisch Dr. Matt Carrington. He is a kind, caring, gentle man. When he and Becca keep meeting sparks fly. Becca is a sweet and caring person, too. They encounter some issues making a relationship difficult and possibly impossible. There are some twists and turns placed throughout to surprise readers.
The characters in the book are not as deep as in most of the author’s other works. For some reason I felt a little disconnected to them. The dialog seemed stiff and uneven at times. Overall story was very good.
I would recommend this book to Amish lovers. It is a nice, sweet book. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but these are my own, honest words.
About the Book
A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance to discover love’s true way home…
Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith’s strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She’s never been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt’s wealthy mother is determined her son will marry a society woman.
With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances.
