Format: Paperback
Jenny is an Englisher who goes to her grandmother's house in Lancaster, PA to recuperate after several surgeries from a car bombing. She is having problems dealing with her scars and people taking care of her. She is reunited with a summer love, Matthew, who is lives next door and is a widower with three kids. As her memory returns, she pieces together the summer as a teenager when she spent it there with him.

She falls in love with Matthew and his family. His youngest daughter, Annie, is absolutely adorable. Jenny falls in love with her, and the others, instantly as she can relate to them losing their mother. They develop a wonderful relationship that touches her heart in a very special way.

I fell in love with this story because it is not like any other Amish story that I have read. I love the unusual "twist" that Barbara Cameron incorporated into this book. Barbara's writing style is wonderful and all the characters become alive within the book.

I am very anxious to read the second book in this series, A Time to Heal, which is scheduled to be released in March 2011. There was a bonus chapter from the second book at the end of this one but I must admit, I did not read it. I enjoyed the book so much that I know that it would leave me wanting more right away!

Format: Paperback
Jennie King has been injured while on an assignment in a foreign country. A car bomb exploded, and she suffered from devastating injuries that may even leave her without her job as a war correspondent for a news station. Sent to her Amish grandmother's house to recover, Jennie struggles with even the most basic of tasks, such as walking, talking, or eating.

Matthew Bontrager used to be Jennie's friend when they were younger, even though she was Englisch and he Amish. But over the years, he married and has three children. When his wife dies, Matthew is crushed, but doesn't hole up in his grief. He has to keep going.

When Jennie renews her acquaintance with Matthew, she wonders if God has a different plan for her life. But ... with him Amish and she Englisch, what will it take to bridge the gap?

A TIME TO LOVE is the first full length Amish book I've read by Ms. Cameron, though I have read two of her novellas in Amish books published by Thomas Nelson.

Jennie is struggling to find her place as she heals from her injuries, and even scared about going out into public with the scars on her face. She also suffers from nightmares caused by her experience. Matthew is a sweet, kind hero who goes above and beyond in trying to help Jennie out.

The story is written well, but the characters fall a bit flat to me. I think she does better on her shorter stories than with this one, but it is still a good read. If you love Amish fiction then A TIME TO LOVE would be a good one to consider. Discussion questions, a preview of Ms. Cameron's second Amish book, and a glossary are included at the end of the book. Also included is a yummy Amish recipes are included at the end of the book.

Although the book tries to make the "even the Amish aren't perfect" concessions, it mostly portrays them in a VERY idealized light. The idea of an Amish man's sister encouraging him to court an English woman visiting next door seems fairly incredible to me. Jenny's speech difficulties and her difficulties getting around were not shown very clearly. I hate to write a bad review, and the book was entertaining enough, but in the spectrum of Amish fiction (and I have read a lot of it), it doesn't rank too highly.

I really was looking forward to reading this and learning more about the Amish way of life. It did fulfill that expectation, but there was a very weak storyline. There was very little character development and/or conflict. By the time I was halfway through I was just skimming the pages to finish it. I understand how she could give up her career for love, but there was no discussion of it at all. Helping the children was so important to her, yet there is no time given to what she would be giving up. That would have given their love even more strength.
I also would have liked a more objective look at both lifestyles, it seemed to look down upon the English. The "holier than thou" tone bothered me a bit.
On a petty note, this author needs a thesaurus. If I saw the word "overseas" one more time I was going to scream! Can you describe it any other way? Overall, I am very glad this book was free. If there are any other Amish romance stories with a bit more substance please recommend:).

Format: Kindle Edition
Everybody was a little too perfect in this story. It was hard to believe that any of these characters were real. The Amish life was definitely idealized. I thought that Jenny's decision at the end of the book was very unlikely for someone in her career and with her passion. However, the "sacrifices" that she made were easy for her because of love. Please. I wish that the author would have included more of Jenny's inner struggles. The book wasn't terribly great writing and used obvious plot devices to move the story along. Despite all of that, it did keep my interest enough to finish it and thus why I gave it two stars. Although I will not be continuing on with the series.

SPOILER ALERT: I thought it was really weird that Jenny joined the Amish. Although she seemed to like their way of living, she didn't seem to be a true convert to it. Even after she decided to join the Amish faith, she wasn't identifying herself as Amish and she didn't seem to have any thoughts about the difficulties of what she would give up.
