A Land of Canaan Series The Wonder of Your Love by Beth Wiseman published by Thomas Nelson
Book Description: Katie Ann lost the love of her life. Then God offers her a new beginning in Colorado.
Katie Ann Stolzfus lives in the small Amish community of Canaan, Colorado. At forty she is widowed and raising her first child. But baby Jonas will never know his father, and Katie Ann wonders if her Heavenly Father hasn't forgotten about her as well. Is it really God's plan for her to be a single parent?
Eli Detweiler has come to Canaan for a wedding and a long vacation. Having raised six children following the death of his young wife, Eli is finally an empty-nester. He's enjoying the slower pace of having no one to care for but himself.
When Katie Ann and Eli meet, there is an instant connection. Yet as strong as the attraction is, they both acknowledge that a romance would never work. He is done parenting, while she has just begun.
But as their friendship slowly blossoms into feelings that are as frightening as they are intoxicating, Katie Ann and Eli question if the plans they made for themselves are in line with God's plans.
Can Katie Ann entrust her heart to another man, and rediscover the wonder of God's love?
My Thoughts: This is a really great book if you love reading about the Amish. The characters were written very well and I loved the story line. Katie Ann was trying to learn to trust God with her life again after all that had happened to her. She also had to learn to trust people again too and to trust herself to be capable to raise her son. There was a lot of attempted matchmaking going on too with some humor involved. I loved each of the characters and was sorry to see the book end. I feel like I've left my new friends and I'm not ready to. I definitely recommend this book if you're looking for a good read.
