The Amish Widower by Virginia Smith

Is It Time for This Widower to Give Love One More Chance?

After the devastating loss of his second wife, Seth Hostetler believes a lasting love is beyond all hope. A year has passed, and his mamm and sister are determined to see him happily married once again. But how can he open his heart to another woman when their relationship could end in tragedy?

On an outing with his family, Seth comes across an Amish potter hard at work and jumps at the chance to take a seat at the wheel. He takes quickly to this creative outlet, pouring his long-buried emotions into each piece he shapes. Unfortunately, the fancy nature of his art draws the disapproval of his district's leadership.

His work puts him in the path of Leah, an Englisch woman employed by the Amish to sell their wares to tourists. Despite her aloofness, something about her speaks to Seth's wounded soul. But what is he to do when the things he wants most threaten to pull him away from the life he's committed to live?

A compelling novel of second chances and the power of God to redeem hearts and dreams, set in the inviting Amish community of Lancaster County.

My Review

When this book opens we learn that Seth had lost his first wife and now is happily married and expecting a baby, but this world is not about to last, and a tragic accident happens and he looses his second wife.
We travel in Seth’s shoes as he goes about his everyday life, and trying to avoid what his family and the community wants, him to remarry, he just can’t do it as he blames himself in a way for the demise of his loved ones. How is he ever going to be able to settle down and have a family, and he decides he isn’t.
A chance meeting with a potter and a new course in his life is set, and a young man shows up in his family’s yard one day looking for a job. Robbie soon becomes Seth’s driver, now from this point on I realized or speculated on who he was, and you will have to read to find out if I’m right.
We also have another struggling soul, the potter’s granddaughter Leah, a former Amish woman, and now struggling, and these two have a lot in common, they need to forgive. Easy to say, but hard to do, and will they ever be able to be at peace without it?
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review.
