I really enjoyed this book. I eagerly await the next one. I would recommend this book for anyone who likes an amish romance were things are not so simple. There are struggles.
Always in My Heart by Mary Ellis
Hope Bowman daughters are her and her husband Stephen blessings from God. Hope is holding out on Stephen who wants a son so very badly, she gave up a son when she was a teenager. She feels that secret is preventing her from giving Stephen the son he wants. Will coming clean about her son give her the miracle she's looking for?
Always His Providence by Ruth Reid
Rosa Hostetler is a young widow and has found out her husband didn't pay the taxes on their farm. Facing the fact that her farm will go up for auction in a month if she doesn't make the payment she prays to God for help. She doesn't want any help from anyone especially her late husband's best friend. As the time to make the payment comes closer and her source of income is falling off will she accept the help from others or even God to save her farm and her future.
Always Beautiful by Beth Wiseman
Becky Byler is overweight with very low self esteem. She prays to God to get thin. But as her miracle is coming true the changes Becky is going through are more than getting thinner. The man of her dreams is starting to court her but, is this the real man of her dreams and will she finally realize that her true beauty was in her all along.
Read the book you won't regret it.
The storyline was interesting - if not also rather unrealistic. Spoiler alert - it includes a mother being crushed by a tree that sends her deaf daughter into a coma and makes her almost autistic when she awakes; a husband who has cancer; miscarriages; rape; a pregnancy from that rape, a girl who lays hands on a dead deer and heals it, and on and on. There's so much death that is used to create drama, when a good writer can create drama from much less overly dramatic situations. What's more - none of these crazy dramatic situations is even fully developed. Josiah never really processes losing his wife, he just one day decides that he actually did fall in love again despite his vow not to. Lyndie never processes being raped (which is super traumatic). Hannah goes back and forth entered normal deaf girl and almost insane. And again, the list of underdeveloped storylines goes on and on.
I also felt like all of the medical talk was very inaccurate. I had a friend who went through treatment for lymphoma, and let's just say her treatment process was different in pretty much every way. In this book, the doctor treating the cancer in his office with a daily dose of chemo (and monitoring the chemo's effectiveness with daily blood draws...) is the same doctor who is acting as OB/gyn for the main character, oh, and all in exchange for some nice Amish furniture. Believable? Not so much.
I think the author could redevelop and rewrite this storyline to make it work, but as the book is, don't bother.
