Life continues for this Amish family and we see Susanna’s father moving on, now my impression of the new wife to be, is not good, but hopefully Susanna won’t have to deal with her for very long? If only her secret admirer would reveal himself, and they could forge a life together.
What a ride to happiness you are about to take as you turn the pages of this sweet read, yes once you start you won’t be able to stop. We all make decisions, and some of them hurt others, and that is what happened here when Benaiah looses his parents, and in turn rejects his own happiness for the love of his grandparents and siblings.
One of the best Christmas stories I have read, so much love and compassion, with a touch of “Cinderella” wove in. A read to treasure and have linger with you.
I received this book through the Author, and was not required to give you a positive review.
The Christmas Admirer is one of the best Christmas stories I’ve read in Amish romance genre. Laura V. Hilton books always consume me, as I never want to stop reading until I’m finished. (Life gets in the way sometimes though). I appreciated the interweaving of scripture the characters used in their struggles along with the prayers that Hilton exquisitely includes in her books. I cannot wait to read the next adventure Laura V. Hilton will be writing for readers to enjoy.
I received an ARC e-book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review but have expressed by honest opinion.
Susanna King has had one blow after another. The love of her life broke things off ten long months ago. As Thanksgiving approaches, her heart can't help remembering how happy she had been. Assured her love for Benaiah was true, she dreamt that this year, they would be spending their first Thanksgiving as a married couple.
Then, tragically, his parents were killed in an accident and he was left to provide for his younger sisters and grandparents. After that, he simply broke things off telling her it wasn't her, it was him. Hm....what a vague reason that broke her heart and kept her wondering just what she did to dampen his love. The curious thing about her life since then were the monthly gifts from her secret admirer. Flowers, sweet treats, and always a wonderful note written in block letters such as "I have loved thee with an everlasting love." (Jeremiah 31:3) Who was this secret admirer?
Benaiah Troyer loved Susanna with all his heart. He couldn't ask her to marry him and share his responsibility for three sisters and aging grandparents. He had been apprenticed and working along side Susanna's father Peter at his successful glass blowing business. His future didn't seem quite as bright as he thought it should look. Seeing her every day when he came to work and sharing meals with her and Peter made it harder to hide his feelings.
Life, however, often throws curve balls that get our attention that we may not see otherwise. Peter King had been widowed since Susanna was five. He had giving no hint to his daughter or apprentice that this would change. He hedged around the topic and finally told them both that he was marrying soon, selling the business and house and moving to Iowa and that Irene, his beloved would arrive that day with her sons and daughters for Thanksgiving weekend. Most of her father's friends and even the preacher had learned of his coming nuptials weeks before!
After Thanksgiving, Peter escorted his bride to be back to Iowa for a visit, leaving behind a bewildered Susanna. To her, his behavior was so out of character. She couldn't leave behind her beloved home; nor could she move with in with her father and Irene after the wedding. They didn't need an old maid moving in on their new family. Benaiah would lose his job and his girl. It seemed as if nothing good would happen again. Faith, love and more faith sprinkled with a little gingerbread is what is needed to see this through!
