A Home for Hannah (Amish of Pontotoc #1) by Amy Lillard






Fifteen years. That's how long it's been since Hannah McLean set foot in the Amish community where she was raised. Through it all her heart has never forgotten Pontotoc--or Aaron Zook, her first love. Now widowed, and left with little more than her hurting teenager and her prayers, she returns home, even knowing she and her son may be turned away.

When Aaron learns Hannah has returned, he nearly falls to his knees. He's a strong man, but lately the care of his three motherless children and family land have been more than he can handle. Now providence has delivered the first woman he loved, and with her, the rush of feelings they once shared. But will his simple, removed way of life leave Hannah longing for something more, or can they begin anew, finding a new way forward together?

About The Author






I'm a wife, mother, and bona fide Southern belle. Published author, expert corn bread maker, and Squirrel Princess.

I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend not long after. I've retained a little of my Mississippi accent though most people think I'm from Texas. (?) Rob and I have been married for over twenty years and have a son--a mom proclaimed prodigy, of course!

I love homemade tacos, nail polish, and romance novels--not necessarily in that order. I'm a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of saving the Oxford comma, and I'm shamefully obsessed with all things Harry Potter.

I believe that God is love. I guess that's why I adore romances.

I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay, I'm a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family. Yes, that's me June Cleaver with a laptop.

My Review




Can you imagine not seeing your family for fifteen years? This is what happened to our heroine Hannah, and then to her son, but circumstances upon circumstances thwart any return previously.
The author has emphasized the theme of forgiveness, a part of your faith in God, easy to say, but very hard to truly do. Now our girl appears to have a foot in both worlds, and each are pulling on her, how can she decide, and yet her loves need her.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and we see all of the characters being pulled in different directions, and yet they never waver in their faith in God.
Watch as big secrets unfold, and then see how each of these characters are able to deal with the bombshells, some you will never see coming.
Big tangled web here, and it seems impossible to untangle, is there any possibility?

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