THE AMISH WIDOW'S NEW LOVE
He's her first love...will he be her last?
Naomi Miller can't believe Elam Yoder's back in their community after all the pain he caused! Still, the young Amish widow must reunite with her disgraced first love to raise money for her infant son's surgery. Elam's remorse seems sincere, as does his commitment to helping Naomi and her baby. Elam's looking for forgiveness -- and a new life with Naomi and her bobbeli by his side.
I've been enamored with Liz Tolsma's World War II novels so I was anxious to see how she handled something so completely different. After all, writing an Amish romance requires a certain skill set and I'm happy to say she delivers the same quality of storytelling in this new-to-her genre. I appreciate the homework she did on the Amish in Wisconsin and how she has woven their lifestyle and faith into a captivating second chance romance.
Kind-hearted, well-meaning Elam is so impetuous that sometimes it seems like everything he does is wrong while level-headed Naomi only wants to create a secure future for her infant son. Elam was trouble once upon a time and she has no intention of getting tangled up with him again. There's too much hurt in the past and while she tells herself she's forgiven Elam, she swears she'll never forget.
Tolsma explores the true meaning of forgiveness in this touching romance. And I love how that theme plays out in a number of characters' lives -- not just the hero and heroine. An honest -- and raw -- look at the healing power grace can bring to the most tormented soul. Definitely looking forward to more of stories of this Wisconsin Amish community.
