A Time to Heal is the second book in the Quilts of Lancaster series, and it is just as wonderful as the first book in the series. The story yanked me in from the first page and didn't let go until the final word. We get to follow more of Jenny & Matthew's life together, in addition to the primary focus on Matthew's sister Hannah, and Chris, the newcomer Englisher, who helps Matthew during a busy harvest-time. Chris is an ex-soldier, searching for peace, after doing the right thing costs him more then he counted on losing. Like it's predecessor, A Time to Heal hits on hard themes, such as doing the right thing even when it hurts, forgiveness, and trying to understand God's Will. This is Amish fiction with an edge.

A Time to Heal is a value-added book, with authentic Amish recipes, a glossary, discussion questions, an interview with the author, and snippets from A Time to Love (Quilts of Lancaster County book 1) and A Time for Peace (Quilts of Lancaster County book 3). Amish fiction lovers will love this story!

It took me just parts of a couple of days to read A Time to Heal by Barbara Cameron, book two in her Quilts of Lancaster County series, and that was time very enjoyably spent. Barbara has a way of sharing lots of interesting information about the Amish way as she brings her characters to life and weaves them together into a great story.

It was fun to revisit Jenny, Matthew, Phoebe, Hannah, and the kinner in Paradise. Chris, an Englisch acquaintance of Jenny's, comes looking for peace while dealing with physical and emotional injuries of war. He finds the peace he's longing for, and much more, as he is attracted to the outspoken and determined Hannah. But he and the Bontrager family face questions, unrest, and tragedies when his past follows him and brings harm to those he has grown to love.

I would recommend that you curl up under a cozy quilt and enjoy this story of love, hope and forgiveness from a great author. I'm looking forward to coming back for a visit with old friends when A Time for Peace comes out in the fall.

I waited for this second book and read it in one day. Now I want the third book right now. So many twists and written from the heart. The characters seem so real in way the author writes. It is not a preaching book but one with Christian meanings throughout.

I am not big on romances that feature Amish, written by people who are not Amish. I am not big on romances period. But every once in a while the brain needs something sweet, fluffy, light. So this book was my rice crispy treat for the brain. I did like the characters, and it is refreshing when a romance is truly that and not another sex novel. This was book two of a series, but easily read as a stand alone.
Chris has returned home from the war, with a lot of bitterness and PTSD. He is looking for someone he met in the hospital, hoping that he will find peace also. Predictably he finds love. The saving part is that Hannah is no sweet demure young thing, but an old maid with a sharp tongue who doesn't like this stranger hanging around. Hannah is the character that makes the book, otherwise all the characters would just be sweet as honey.
I probably won't go back and read the first one, but if you like romance, with a lack of smut, then this author would appeal.

A Time to Heal, by Barbara Cameron

Chris, one of the main characters of this book, had been injured overseas in Afghanistan during the war while in the Marines. He met a woman, Jenny, who was working in the medical unit in Afghanistan during the war as well, who was also injured and was staying in the Veterans Hospital. She is from Paradise, (Lancaster County), Pennsylvania. She is Amish. She told him all about where she was from, that she was Amish, about her family and more. While they had both been recovering from their injuries, he decided he wanted to go and visit the area where she lived as he thought it would be so peaceful it would be the perfect place to finish recovering from his injuries, both physical as well as mental. He had been having flashbacks from the war, PTSD, (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and needed a nice, quiet, peaceful place to fully recover. Throughout the book, he gets flashbacks from the war. Jenny even explains to him he is suffering from PTSD, and exactly what the disorder is.
When he does arrive in Paradise, (Lancaster County), he does end up at Jenny's parent's home. Is this a coincidence or is it God at work? He ends up staying at her family's home and helping as a farmhand as well. He likes this. He likes the work very much as well.
It is here that he meets Jenny's sister, Hannah. He found himself starting to have feelings for her that did not go away. He knew he was an 'Outsider', (meaning he is not Amish, nor was he raised Amish,) so would he be accepted by the Amish Community? This even prompted a visit to Hannah's family from the local Bishop of that community. Did Hannah love him back? Could she love him back since he is an Outsider? He found he was quite able to readjust and follow the Amish ways of life very easily.

What would it be like to walk in your barn and find a handsome Englischer in your barn loft? That's what happened to Hannah Bontrager, an Amish young lady living in Paradise Pennsylvania. However, when Hannah's brother Matthew walked in, he was not too happy about the situation.

Chris Matlock, an ex-soldier showed up at the Bontrager farm looking for his friend Jennie. He and Jennie met in a stateside hospital while recovering from injuries while overseas. Chris was hoping Jennie could help him overcome the emotional difficulties he was going through because of his war days. What he didn't think he would do was lose his heart to a feisty young Amish woman named Hannah.

Hannah was not your normal Amish young woman because most were quiet and let their husbands have most of the say. Hannah was spirited, headstrong and didn't mind voicing her opinion, especially to this Englisch stranger. But there was one problem, Hannah found herself attracted to their new visitor. How could this be when she is Amish and he is an Englischer? And as if that isn't enough, he is an ex-soldier, he fought in the war, and the Amish do not believe in violence. Will Hannah act on her secret feelings for this handsome guy? And will Chris stay around long enough to get to know this difficult but beautiful young woman who is not afraid to tell him about his faults.

As this heartwarming Amish story unfolds, you will be reunited with Matthew and Jenny Bontrager and their three kinder, Jenny's grandmother Phoebe, Hannah and the small Amish community you fell in love with in the first book of Barbara Cameron's Quilts of Lancaster County Series. I like the characters created by the author. Each character and their personalities fit the story making it more enjoyable and more lifelike.
