Two Suitors for Anna (Keepsake Pocket Quilt #3) by Molly Jebber






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.

About The Author






I said to my loving husband, Ed, “I’ve always wanted to write a book. A story that readers would get lost in for a while.” He said, “Do it!” My daughter, Misty, brother, Mitch, and Mom, Sue said, “Take Ed’s advice, do it!” So I did. The road wasn’t easy, but the education, Amish research, and ride along the way to getting published taught me to take my favorite verse to heart.

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 KJV

Why Amish Inspirational Romance?
I love their dedication to serve God. I visited Amish Country in Ohio many times. They work hard and have such a close knit friendship with each other. It’s heartwarming and uplifting. At the same time, they face hardships and difficult problems just like we do.

God answered my prayers and gave me the best mentor, author, and friend, Patricia Campbell, to hone my skills. I’m blessed to have Dawn Dowdle as my agent, and John S. from Kensington as my editor.

I’m thank for you, the reader, for being interested in my book!

I’d love to hear from you. www.mollyjebber.com.



My Review




This story is about the Plank family, a mother and three daughters living in the early 1900’s in an Amish Community in Berlin Ohio. In particular the story focus on Anna the oldest, and her romance with Noah, a man that is set to change her, and wants her to move to Lancaster PA, but things cannot remain smooth, and before he leaves a new settler moves to their community, Daniel Bontranger.
Ok you are going to find yourself rooting for one over the other, and found that with the things that are happening you are definitely swayed to choose one. There are some serious and sad events that take place, and they make your choice even more evident. While we do have some moments that will make you smile, especially the ones with pets.
You will be on a yo-yo ride, when first one and then the other of this special couple cannot make a major commitment, you will be page turning and looking for answers here.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zebra, and was not required to give a positive review.
