Another Great Book from Molly Jebber!! Be sure to enter the giveaway!

"Two Suitors for Anna"
     By Molly Jebber

Synopsis:

In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for and a new, very different future…Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm, the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to share…

Praise for Molly Jebber’s Change of Heart

“Endearing characters and a delightful story make this a keeper for fans of Amish romance.” --Emma Miller 

“This is a wonderfully written historical romance with Amish and Englisch characters who are loveable and considerate of others. The storyline is believable and heartwarming. Jebber is a talented author.” –RT Book Reviews

My Thoughts:

After being introduced to Anna in the second book of Molly Jebber's "Keepsake Pocket Quilt" series, "Grace's Forgiveness", I knew that I would LOVE a tale that centred on this interesting, lovable young woman. This book was no disappointment. Once started, I had great difficulty putting it down. I just had to read one more page....and one more and ......

The setting is perfect for this Amish tale. The adventure takes place in one of my favorite places to visit, Berlin, Ohio. It is a charming town, full of Amish character. Molly's talent in describing the scenes and characters in a vivid, picturesque manner is evident throughout this book. I found myself imagining that I was there alongside Anna, Noah and  Daniel. 

The characters were described in  realistic detail so that the reader can easily identify with them . I found myself wanting to give Anna a big hug at some times, a good shake at others!! The feeling of frustration with some silly decisions that Anna made left me shaking my head!  She became my friend as did all the characters who had a role in this story. The only way to conquer some of their challenges was to trust God and pray to make the right choices. This was the underlying theme that ran through this book. God has the answers in good times and bad, but we have to trust Him and take time to listen to Him. 

The plot keeps the reader engaged from the first page of the book to the last. The tale moves  quickly with just enough unexpected twists and turns to keep us guessing. Just when you think you have figured out what Anna will do, there is another roadblock! I must  admit this book kept me up VERY late one night. I just had to find out how the story ended.

This heartwarming novel is definitely a five star read!!! I am eagerly awaiting the next book by this talented author. 

This book was received as a gift. The opinions expressed are honest and my own.

What prompted Two Suitors for Anna?
Have you had to choose between two men you love? Or maybe a friend?  I gave Anna this dilemma and added to her turmoil by throwing in a bundle of twists and turns to the story.
Noah proposes to Anna, and he takes her rejection as hesitation and leaves town. Daniel moves to Berlin and offers her friendship which is blossoming into something more, when Noah returns and asks her forgiveness and another chance. I hope you enjoy it!
