The Amish Nanny's Sweetheart

GIVEAWAY
DREXLER, JAN
THE AMISH NANNY'S SWEETHEART

Love in Plain Sight

As nanny for her nephew, Judith Lapp's finally part of a vibrant, joyful Amish community instead of being on the outskirts looking in. But teaching her neighbors' Englischer farmworker to read Pennsylvania Dutch wasn't part of her plan. And the more time she spends with Guy Hoover, the more he sparks longings for a home and family of Judith's own.

Guy figured he would never be truly accepted by his Amish employer's community -- even though the Mast family treats him like a son. But Judith's steadfast caring shows him that true belonging could be within his reach...if he and Judith can reconcile their very different hopes -- and hearts.

Amish Country Brides: small-town love, plain and simple.

My Review:

I fall more in love with Jan Drexler's writing with each book I read. She has a gift for creating memorable characters (and,if you are familiar with some of her other LIH work, you'll recognize a few of them playing a secondary role in this one.) And the way she steeps her stories with historical tidbits makes me feel like I've time-traveled into the Depression Era. Plus, her stories are deliciously complicated for a tag line claiming "plain and simple." Plain as in Amish, yes, but there's nothing simple about this historical romance. It's rife with angst and inspiration and the yearning we all have to belong.

  2. I'm just going to go ahead with my reader confession now, I've never read a Jan Drexler book, although I've been meaning to! This looks like a good place to start.
    Thanks to The Ever Generous Kav!

  13. There's always those authors that I want to try, but haven't seen much feedback. While, on the contrary, I have heard so many great things about Jan Drexler's Amish historicals and have been really wanting to try them. I did end up getting her last LI book recently, but still need to read it. tlhcoupon(at)Hotmail(dot)com

    1. I really love the blend of history and Amish. And this book is super special because the author loosely based Guy's story on her own grandfather. You can feel that special connection there in her words. Good luck, Terrill.
