Even though Anna knew her parents loved her, she was conflicted most of her twenty years. Why didn’t her biological mother love her? Why did she give her up for adoption? She had a strong love of drawing and wanted to enter a contest and win the grand prize, a full scholarship to a great art school. She even prayed for it. She knew she shouldn’t but, would God really give her a talent and not want her to use it? She wanted to go find her “real” mother and find out what it would have been like to have been raised English but she didn’t want to hurt her parents.
Jessie Beiler, the bishop’s son, came to work at the farm. Jessie became Anna’s confidant. She would tell him her secrets and ask his advice. Jessie fell in love with Anna but wouldn’t stand in the way of her dream. He was even going with her to support her in the contest.
The morning they were to leave town, Jessie didn’t show up. Anna assumed he couldn’t get away and went without him. While away, she realized she was in love with Jessie too and wouldn’t leave the community even if she did win the contest. She had no way of knowing that Jessie had been involved in an accident on the way to her house that morning. Did she realize her feelings too late? Did Jessie die in the accident? Did Anna win the contest? What about her biological mother? Did Anna find her?
You’ll have to read this very well written book to find the answers…. you’ll be glad you did! Thank you, Lisa Jones Baker, for allowing me to read Anna and Jessie’s story
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
*I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book. I am not required to leave a review. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
Anna King has a secret talent that the Amish really frown upon. She's an artist and wants to go to art school and get a degree to be able teach art to others.
Her friend, Jesse Beiler, is the only one who knows her secret. He's been her friend since they were in school together, and nothing would please him more than being her friend forever. And he would like nothing better than to buy some land and farm it.
Love at Pebble Creek is the kind of book that will keep the reader up late simply because it can't easily be put down. The descriptions are exceptionally vivid and imaginative. I love the description of Pebble Creek, and can imagine myself relaxing there frequently.
This is a five-star book, with two thumbs up, and a portrait-style sketch of yourself.
My thanks goes to Zebra Books and NetGalley.com for providing the galley I read for this review.
The author has done well in writing a very descriptive setting of Pebble Creek. I felt totally invested in the story. Anna, the adopted daughter of Paul and Naomi King, was a great artist who had hopes of furthering her artistic talent.
This is the first time I have read an Amish story about an adopted person who felt caught between two worlds, that of the English and Amish. She wondered about her birth mom and what she must have been like, thankful she caught to have her and put her up for adoption instead of what could have been a fateful ending.
I recommend this novella to fans of Amish fiction. Even though it is book five it serves well as a standalone.

Are you all ready to go back?
I can't wait for you to find out if Anna and Jessie find love.
I loved thinking about Sam and remembering him. Wishing he was here to share his wisdom.
If you have never been to Pebble Creek, that's okay you can read this book as a stand alone. It is a quick read and you are going to want to read them all.
I gave this book 4 stars. I recommend it.
