Book Description

Chris Matlock, a wounded and weary ex-soldier, just wants peace in his life, and he believes he’s found it when he visits Matthew and Jenny Bontrager. He envies their happiness and simple life but doesn’t believe that that life is meant for him.

When he meets Matthew’s sister, Hannah, a small spark of hope flares within him. Despite the clash of cultures between the former military man and the pacifist Amish woman, Chris and Hannah fall in love. Chris settles into life in the community, helping Matthew with the farm.

Then the threats begin. At first, Chris plans to leave in order to protect Hannah. Then he discovers who his enemy is and realizes that he must stay and face his adversary, even if it means revealing a secret he hoped would remain buried forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Amish Fiction March 3, 2011
Format:Paperback
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, quick read! March 12, 2011
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read February 25, 2011
By Dorothy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like eating a rice crispie treat October 18, 2011
By Domino
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable, but editors are MIA November 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this story, but good gosh, where are the editors?? One of the main characters "schooled her expression" no less than FOUR times in the book - and the book is not that long. It reminds me of someone I know who uses a newly-learned word or expression every chance he gets. It makes for ridiculous reading. The author needs to find a thesaurus, and the editors need to notice and correct word overuse.

That aside, the story itself was a good read, entertaining, and the characters interesting. I would be interested in reading another in the series, so long as the characters can refrain from "schooling their expressions" every other page!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good beach read for spring break March 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this vacation paced book. I haven't read Amish stories before. This was a pleasant treat with a positive ending. No profanity, no unnecessary gore, no wild sex but plenty of delightful romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read! January 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy a good read with some insights into the Amish way of life, this is a good book for you! An ex-soldier looking to heal his damaged soul and a young Amish woman find themselves caught up in an attraction that is not approved of when his past comes back to haunt him.

In order to set things straight, they risk all.

Again, Barbara Cameron gives us a glimpse into the lives of the Amish, who, are so very much like other humans, both good and not-so-good, with very human flaws.
