Review: A Miracle of Hope by Ruth Reid

A Miracle of Hope (The Amish Wonders, #1)

A Miracle of Hope (The Amish Wonders #1)

How far can God's mercy reach?

Lindie Wyse is pregnant out of wedlock and thinks an arranged marriage is the only way to preserve her future. Josiah Plank is certain he'll never love again, but he needs someone to care for his eight-year-old daughter, Hannah. The two take on their arrangement tentatively at first but soon realize they are each in for more than they imagined.

Lindie experiences a breakthrough with Hannah when she recognizes Hannah's special gifts, but a risky pregnancy and serious health issues threaten to demolish the foundation Josiah and Lindie are building. Will their growing love survive despite their struggles, or will their hearts become as cold as the northern winter?

I have never read an Amish book before, but this book looked very interesting. I was amazing at how well written it was. I learned things about the Amish I didnt really know about them, and I loved that learning experience. 

This book was very emotional, and I kept turning the pages as fast as I can because I wanted to know what happened next. I was quickly sucked into the romance and the drama and the life. I found myself crying a few times. 

With a few twists and turns, there is no lack of interest in this wonderful book. Both Lindie and Josiah are strong characters, and I loved watching them grow throughout the book. I want to read more of the series, and I might even pick up more Amish books because honestly, it was nothing like my expectations. 

Hanna was interesting. I liked her a lot. I'm still pondering over a few of the things she does in the book, and my mind just whirls with the possibilities of what they could mean.
I received a paperback copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for the tour. I thank the publisher and the author and the tour manager for allowing me to have the opportunity to read this fine book  and being apart of this tour. I hope to check out more works by Ruth Reid and I encourage anyone whose interests lie in this genre to read this book! 

5 of 5 stars.
