This Love Inspired historical story is filled with characters that faced challenges, finding their place in life, second chances and forgiveness from God and others. Judith Lapp was a nanny for her sister Annie’s family with the birth of their twins. Guy Hoover was working for their neighbors as a hired hand, even though David and Verna Mast considered him their son. Judith is a very caring young lady and Guy is struggling with where he fit in but was drawn to Judith with her compassion and teaching him Deitsch since he didn’t grow up Amish. Will Guy join the church or go with his dad who had left him at an orphanage after the death of his mother? I was totally involved with this historical Amish story that brought tears when I read how it was loosely based upon Drexler’s grandfather’s life in the early 1900’s. There are plenty of unexpected events happening surrounding the hero and heroine, along with secondary characters. Amish fan readers will enjoy this series and I recommend starting with the first book, The Amish Courtship, in the Amish Country Brides series by this author. I have enjoyed each one and would like to see more in the future.
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.
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 given a complimentary copy of this book by the author. All opinions are my own.
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.
