A PLAIN WOMAN...
AND A WILD MAN?
Amish widow Hannah Yoder prays her daughters will each find a husband someday. Still, sensible Ruth believes it's God's will that she stay home and help are for her younger sisters. But when a handsome young man comes to Kent County, Ruth starts to rethink her plans. Not yet part of the church, Eli Lapp is allowed to run wild. Yet something in Ruth's sweet smile and gentle manner makes him yearn to settle down - with her at his side.
Can Eli convince her that their lives should be entwined together on God's path?
When Ruth Yoder's father passed away, she felt that it was God's plan for her to stay at home and help her mother take care of her younger sister's. This was the plan, until Eli Lapp pulled from the fire at the school house. Never had Ruth looked into eyes like his. Determined, to stay on course, Ruth continued to rebuff his attentions.
With rumors flying about him, from his hometown and his attention to Miriam, Ruth's sister, how could she even entertain thoughts of Eli?
I loved this book and before I got through reading it, I had ordered the next two books in the series. I am hoping that the uu, Emma Miller, will continue to write about this family. I would give this book a 5 star rating.
