With Winter's First Frost (Every Amish Season #4) by Kelly Irvin






From bestselling author Kelly Irvin comes the fourth and final book in the compelling Every Amish Season series.

Will the long, cold winter prove to be Laura and Zechariah's season of renewed purpose and love sweetened with age?

Laura Kauffman has been a widow for eight years--since her husband of forty-five years passed away in his sleep on Christmas Eve. She tries to keep herself busy with her nine children, fifty-two grandchildren, and twenty-eight great-grandchildren. But she can't stop wondering: What does God expect her to do with her days now? Has her usefulness been expended? Why leave her to carry on alone? Those are questions she can't answer until a friend suffers complications during childbirth and needs someone to help care for her newborn twins and three older children. The twins' great-grandfather, Zechariah Stutzman, a widower himself, seems to need some upkeep as well. Suddenly, Laura has her hands full, and the long winter days don't seem so long.

Zechariah suffers from Parkinson's disease. When his wife died of breast cancer two years earlier, his children insisted he live with one of his grandsons and their growing family because of his disease's progression. He's not allowed to drive, chop wood, or build fires. He feels he has outlived his usefulness. Then Laura comes along and seems determined to change that.

Both Laura and Zechariah must seek God's will to find the purpose for this season in their lives. They have to be willing to trust and to accept that second chances for romantic love are possible--even probable--when they give control of their lives to God.

My Review




What a fun book, would love to be in a room with the banter that the author has given us, between these seasoned individuals, had me laughing out loud!
A book that is going to make you think, and a faith that cares about their members and hate for them to go down the wrong path.
All the while you wonder if two seniors could possibly have a relationship, if the love of a great grandmother will convince her wayward greats to repent and stay in their faith.
We have new babies being born, a change of homes for a great grandfather, changes in their church, and more! A read that is going to have you page turning!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
