A Love for Leah (The Amish Matchmaker #4) by Emma Miller
The Widow's Second Chance
Widow Leah Yoder married for love once. Now that she's come home to Seven Poplars, she wants a marriage of convenience that will provide a longed-for family without dishonoring the memory of her late husband. A steady, serious older man would be ideal—someone completely unlike handsome, fun-loving Thomas Stutzman. She and the aspiring organic farmer agree to court to prove that this time, the matchmaker has made a mistake! But as their friendship deepens, will Leah settle for what she thought she needed, or put fear aside for a second chance at happiness?
About The Author
Emma Miller is a wife, mother and a grandmother who lives a quiet life in Delaware. She's the author of the Hannah's Daughter's series and is at work on her next Amish romance novel.
We are back in Seven Poplars Amish community, and our Leah has returned home after loosing her husband and infant daughter. How hard it must have been for her to continue on, and we know that her faith is what leads her.
I had the feeling that she was beating herself up, and although she would embrace having more children and a husband, she doesn’t want to fall in love again. Why, because she doesn’t want the pain of loss, or because she feels she is dishonoring her late husband.
Thomas on the other hand has been living Amish, but at almost thirty has failed to make a commitment to the faith. He seems happy go lucky, and as the book opens he is being turned down from his offer of marriage, handsome Thomas, he has failed and his family think it is time to settle down and take a wife.
Thus we find these two at the Amish matchmaker, Sara, and this could be one of her first failures, and a very unlikely match. Watch as these two interact, and meet the rest of their families, I loved being reunited with Susanna and King David; these two make their family so special.
This is a fast read, mainly because you want to find out all the answers, and the only problem I had was turning the last page and still wanting more.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Love Inspired, and was not required to give a positive review.
