Hannah's Courtship

GIVEAWAY

MILLER, EMMMA
HANNAH'S COURTSHIP

Second Chance At Love

Amish widow Hannah Yoder never intended to marry again. Yet when her friendship with veterinarian Albert Hartman begins to bloom into something more, Hannah wonders if perhaps she's finally ready for a new love. Albert waited his whole life to find the right woman, only to realize Hannah was there all along. But there's more than their friendship to consider. Albert is a Mennonite, born-and-bred, and Hannah cannot—will not—leave her Amish faith, not even for him. Does Albert have the courage to give up his modern life for Hannah…and will Hannah have the courage to let him?

Hannah's Daughters: Seeking love, family  and faith in Amish country

My Review:

A celebration of family and faith.

This is such a satisfying read on so many levels. The gentle romance is captivating -- a friendship that unexpectedly grows into something more. But it is Hannah's full, rich family life that really charmed me. A wonderful mix of happy and sad, joy and yearning. And there are many touching moments as Hannah grapples with the realization that her Downs Syndrome daughter is growing up. At twenty-one Susanna is an exasperating mix of child/woman. I ached and worried right along with Hannah over Susanna's antics.

I've only read two other books in the Hannah's Daughters series but plan to catch up on the others this summer. There are eight in total! You don't need to have read any of the others to enjoy Hannah's Courtship though Miller does a wonderful job of giving loyal readers a glimpse into the married lives of all the Yoder Girls. A lovely tribute to a great series.

  6. Hello Kav. I would really love to win this book. That is a hard spot this couple is in. Would be really hard to wed someone with such a different lifestyle in the rules they have to follow. And sad to love someone and have to give up your love. Please put my name in. Thanks for the review. Maxie
