A Courtship on Huckleberry Hill (The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill #8) by Jennifer Beckstrand
There's nothing Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s irrepressible eighty-somethings Anna and Felty Helmuth like better than a challenge. And the chance to matchmake their feisty granddaughter is their most delightful task yet…
Elsie Helmuth’s plain-spoken ways got her in trouble once before, so she needs to make a good impression at her new teaching job in Huckleberry Hill. But she's not about to let disabled student Wally Sensenig work below his potential. And she definitely won’t put up with his hot-headed older brother sabotaging her efforts, no matter how handsome he is. . .
Sam is nearly at the end of his rope caring for his ailing, widowed mother, working their farm, and raising his siblings. He'll admit Elsie’s ideas are bringing Wally out of his angry shell—but why does she have to be as stubborn as she is pretty? Yet as it turns out, Elsie has taught Sam something about himself as well. And he’ll do whatever it takes to make up for his mistakes—and win her heart forever.
About The Author
really loved being back with the best Amish grandparents Annie and Felty, and they sure didn’t disappoint, I just hate waiting for stories about more of their grandchildren
The author presents a strong caring young woman for the new teacher in this Wisconsin Amish settlement, and of course she is the Helmuth’s granddaughter and we see for ourselves what a great teacher she is. The man that Annie has picked out for our Elsie at times leaves a lot to be desired, but he has a lot on his plate.
The story does involve a brother of Sam’s who has a number of handicaps, notably missing a leg. While Sam is felling guilt, and pampers and babies him, Elsie seems to have compassion and intuition to know exactly what to say and do.
Come and see what a bit of jealously will do to hurt so many, and undo a lot of accomplishments. A different type of Amish story, and one that will linger with you.
