An Amish Noel (The Amish Bachelors #2) by Patricia Davids

An Amish Homecoming

Luke Bowman's homecoming is turning Emma Swartzentruber's carefully ordered world upside down. Gone is her rebellious girlhood crush, and in his place is a handsome man who seems committed to serving the community. Luke's even agreed to work for Emma's ill father, whose last wish is to see his daughter wedded to a stable, loving man. But Luke - a man who flirted with the outside world with disastrous consequences - is hardly marriage material for a good Amish woman. Yet this Christmas, when her family is flung into crisis, Emma finds that he may just be the one to capture her heart for good.

My Review

An Amish Noel is the next book in the Amish Bachelor series, and this book focus’s on Luke. If you remember Luke from the first book, he carries a lot of guilt and pain; he was responsible for Samuel’s accident. He is also on probation from his time with the English, and is responsible in a way for Timothy going to jail.
Will he be able to turn his life around, and join and live his faith? He is off to a good start when he decides to help his former girlfriend, ah is she, Emma Swartzentruber’s father. Will he be able to face her each day, will she accept that he is working for her Dad, and he sure needs help. Will he influence her teenage brother with the life he lived with the English.
What a wonderful reunion we have with the characters we met in the first book, and we catch up with their lives, and are included in this story. There are a few chuckles and joy found here and there are some very serious moments, and times of fear.
I can’t wait for the next book in this series, and from the author’s hints it is going to be brother Timothy’s life.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Love Inspired, and was not required to give a positive review.
