A HOME FOR HANNAH
In Pontotoc, Mississippi, the Amish was means a chance to rebuild, renew and rekindle a love from long ago...
Fifteen years. That's how long it's been since Hannah McLean set foot in the Amish community where she was raised. Through it all her heart has never forgotten Pontotoc - or Aaron Zook, her first love. Now widowed, and left with little more than her hurting teenager and her prayers, she returns home, even knowing she and her son may be turned away.
When Aaron learns Hannah has returned, he nearly falls to his knees. He's a strong man, but lately the care o f his three motherless children and family land have been more than he can handle. Now providence has delivered the first woman he loved, and with her, the rush of feelings they once shared. But will his simple, removed way of life leave Hannah longing for something more, or can they begin anew, finding a new way forward together?
Ah, the perils of second chance romance! Be prepared to have your tummy tied up in knots as you navigate your way through the complicated twists and turns of Hannah's messy life. She's dealt with a lot since she left her Amish community in Pontotoc, Mississippi (love the unusual setting!) Now she's headed home after a fifteen year absence -- virtually penniless and with a sullen teen in tow. Talk about abounding angst!
The conservative Old Order Amish community Hannah wanted to escape as a teen has now become her haven - a place where she can regroup and figure out what's next in her life. And maybe breech the ever widening gap between her son and herself. What she hadn't counted on was her first love, Aaron Zook, being a widower or her family throwing the two together in hopes of urging Hannah back to the fold.
There's such sweet agony as feelings reawaken even though it seems hopeless. There's no way to bridge their Amish and Englisch worlds and meet all their family obligations. I was on tenterhooks trying to figure out how Lillard was going to make this romance work. It isn't a perfect ending...but it's a good one.
A Home for Hannah is the first book in the Amish of Pontotoc, Mississippi series. I already love this community and am excited to see what happens next and luckily I won't have long to wait - A Love for Leah releases this July!
