Anna's Gift by Emma Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Samuel Mast expresses an interest in Anna Yoder, she is sure she heard him wrong and he meant her mother. Anna is a big boned girl, and can't imagine a man as handsome as Samuel being interested in her.
Anna does not have very good self esteem, but is so kind hearted. To make things worse some of her Aunts and Cousins, tell her that Samuel only wants her to cook, clean and watch his children. They tell her she a big fat girl and he surely would never love her!
Samuel lost his wife 4 years ago, and everyone in the Amish Community expects him to marry Hannah Yoder, but he falls in love with Anna. Anna does not believe he could love her. Some of the incidents in this book are hysterically funny...be prepared for some really great laughs!
Throughout the whole story you find a strong faith in God, even Grossmutter with her dementia keeps her faith.
A really good and fast read...enjoy!
I received this book from the publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
