My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! As a "cripple" life for Elizabeth (Lizzie) has always been tough but at least after she married Abraham she felt useful. Now two months after her husband's deadly accident, his younger brother Zachariah (Zack) comes into her life and changes it all around. Yet, even if her heart wants to move on is that the right choice for herself and her stepchildren?

This touching novel deals with the troubles that faces being a stepparent after their loved one has passed on while being in an Amish setting. I appreciated how Ms. Kertz handled this novel and how she portrayed the characters. Very well written and dynamic! Then to be pleasantly surprised with not one romance but two, it just kept putting a smile on my face.

Zack and Lizzie are an enchanting couple. From their subtle banter to how they "feel one another out" in learning to trust them to their growing relationship, I cannot praise their connection enough! Or should I say I wish I could have read more about them.

The other couple is Zack's older sister Esther and her childhood love David. Their secondary story was inevitable once the reader starts reading from Esther's POV and you see how much she missed him. It was as though they were meant to be no matter what. In addition, I enjoyed reading from Esther's POV mostly because it humanized her and you get to understand Zack and his family more.

Overall, I really liked the flow of this novel and got really entertained along the way. I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys Amish Christian romances!!

Book Teaser(s) :
Anne grinned and leaned over to hug her. "I love you, Mam."
Lizzie closed her eyes as she held on to her daughter. "I love you. You all are everything a mudder could ask for and more." She released her child to pat her cheek. "Now run off to bed. We've a busy day tomorrow."
Annie nodded vigorously and spun to race out of the room, pausing on the threshold to glance back at Lizzie. "Danki."
Lizzie raised her eyebrows in question.
"For being my mam," Anne explained before she hurried on and shut the door behind her. ~ within Chapter 2
