An Amish Harvest

GIVEAWAY

DAVIDS, PATRICIA
AN AMISH HARVEST

When Amish carpenter Samuel Bowman is injured in an accident, he fears he'll never see again. He's always provided for his family—and now that it's harvest season, the Bowmans are needed in the fields, not at his bedside. So when a young Amish widow becomes his nurse, Samuel expects Rebecca Miller to make his life easier. But his caregiver is bossy, outspoken and challenges him to move on with his life. Though Samuel's sight is in question, he can plainly see the woman he's come to care for won't let herself love again. Now it's Samuel's turn to heal her heart.

My Review:

You know that urban myth about men making the worst patients? Well Samuel confirms that it's no myth! He's a take charge, has everything covered, it's my way or the highway kind of guy. Which can be endearing in a annoyingly macho way. But now an accident has left him helpless and he has to learn to let others carry the load. That chafes and makes Samuel cranky. And grumpy. And depressed. All his mother's coddling is only making things worse. Enter nurse Rebecca -- a force to be reckoned with and she won't be swayed by Samuel's pity party. Can you say major clash of wills?  The resulting feisty dialogue still has me grinning. Love how Rebecca can hold her own. By the time they're ready to declare a truce they're in over their heads -- both falling head over heels but reluctant to trust in a future together. Angsty and funny and ultimately toe-curling.
