Inspirational Amish Romance

About the Book:
A Canadian Amish farmer
A Lancaster Amish businesswoman
A Prince Edward Island foster child
Providence brings together a mismatched family, giving all three a second chance for love. Only love may never have had such a tough job.
Lydia Miller is an anomaly among her Amish people-a single woman in her 30s, running her own store, determined to forge a life on her own. But when Joel Yoder comes into town to sell his property, Lydia suddenly finds all of her hopes and dreams crumbling around her and a new opportunity placed in her lap.
Joel has his own problems. Recently jilted by his fiancée, Joel has seen his own dreams of moving to a newly established Amish community begin to falter. The new community welcomes married couples only. With his dreams quickly slipping from his fingers, Joel suddenly sees the only option he thinks he has--a marriage of convenience for both of them.
As the new couple begins life in a new settlement, they are even more surprised when a foster child in need of a home finds her way to them. Yet what will happen when the English world and the Amish world collide?

My Thoughts

This is the first book that I have read by this author. I look forward to reading more from her. This book is the first in the Amish of Price Edward Island series. The author has written some amazing, unique characters, with a beautifully written story line. I love marriage of convenience stories. 
This one, however shows that you should always be honest with your spouse. Lydia and Joel enter into their marriage holding back secrets. Which can get you tangled up. They do learn to trust each other. 
They also become foster parents to a English child with Autism. Lydia and Joel fall in love with this sweet child -and want to adopt her - however will their pasts hurt them?

I loved this story. It is a story of ultimate trust of God and forgiveness. It is well written and leaves you wanting to read more of the characters.
