I've been a fan of Jan Drexler for awhile now, and wasn't surprised when I started to love this book. She has a way of writing a story that makes you feel included in the plot. Judith was my friend, and I could hear myself giving her advice about an array of topics, from her role as a nanny, to her love interest! I felt this was a fun storyline, and one that I will revisit from time to time. And though it has a historical setting, I have to admit that I felt the storyline could apply today. Maybe in a future novel we will see just that!
Bottom line is this is a fantastic read that Amish fiction fans will adore. With a beautiful setting and lovely characters, you'll feel right at home. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Judith and Guy’s characters are chiseled perfectly. An outsider looking in on the Amish world, Guy’s character was one that really tugged at my heart. I loved Judith’s character, as well, and really felt her dreams become my own. That’s an awesome feeling when that happens! The way that Judith and Guy interacted, and the way that Guy tried to fit into the Amish community, really kept the story interesting!
This is a 4 star book and I highly recommend it. The characters and the faithful inspiration and the hope for belonging really jump within the pages. Ms. Drexler is superbly talented and the research she does shows on the pages of this new release. I can’t wait to read another amazing novella by this author! Well done, Ms. Drexler! Well done.

It sounds like it would be a sugary-sweet story, but you’ll be surprised by the depth of emotion in this little book. As with many Amish novels, much of the plot revolves around young people courting with hopes to find a future spouse. That sometimes makes an Amish story seem like fluff to me. This book, though, allows the reader a deeper view into the hurts and scars the characters carry. Judith and Guy have known their own kinds of heartache. Judith struggled to please her overbearing guardians, while Guy survived against abandonment and physical abuse. It’s a unique view, one that shows how even the Amish have their share of pain in life.
This story is heavy on dialogue, which isn’t usually something I enjoy. However, the purposeful conversations show the way the characters change, and that was a necessary component in making The Amish Nanny’s Sweetheart a meaningful story. I think you’ll enjoy the side characters, too. The plot relies heavily on relationships. This might just compel you to take stock of your own friendships, reaching out with a little more love and kindness.
I loved Judith. She was so mature, loving, and helpful. She had a deep faith and strong morals and values, and she did not let people or situations cause her to lose sight of them. I really felt for Guy and what he was going through. He desperately longed for his dad to come back to him as he had promised. Even though his dad failed him time and again, Guy still had faith in him and the life he thought they could have together one day. This caused him to struggle with fully devoting himself to his new family and community. He felt caught between two worlds. I loved reading how Guy matured and grew throughout the book. He struggled and fought but eventually learned, accepted, and embraced his real family, God and the church.
This is the first book I have read by Jan Drexler, but I will definitely be looking into her backlist! I also really appreciated the reader note from Jan at the back of the book that tells why this story is so meaningful to her.

I was drawn in right from the opening scene where Judith is going to her first Singing. I really liked Judith by the end of the first chapter.Read more
