A Love for Leah (Amish of Pontotoc #2) by Amy Lillard
For the Amish of Pontotoc, Mississippi, faith can open minds—and hearts—to create surprising bonds for a lifetime . . .
Independent-minded Leah Gingerich has always been outspoken. And even though she is now a progressive Mennonite, she's rediscovering the joys of family traditions back in her Amish hometown. Yet she can't help but clash with her handsome new Amish neighbor, Jamie Stoltzfus. He's too hard-headed and old-line to see that his traumatized young nephew, Peter, needs faith and help—or that a woman who stands up to him may be what he needs to heal . . .
After a devastating tragedy, Jamie moved to Pontotoc with his nephew for a fresh start. Holding fast to his beliefs is the only way he feels he can aid Peter—and himself. But somehow, Leah's freethinking ways and feisty challenges are sparking a happiness he's never felt before. Soon, Jamie can't imagine his life without her. But are their differences ultimately too great to overcome—or can love bridge their way to a future together?
About The Author
I loved the second book in this series, and yes you can read alone, but I enjoyed being back with this family that I have really come to know through the words of the author, Amy Lillard.
The first book was Hannah’s and we continue with parts of her life here, but this story is mainly about her twin Leah. We walk in Leah’s shoes through the eyes of the author, and at time you’re going find your world upside down.
Loved the sparing that goes one between Leah and new comer Amish man Jamie, and you wonder how these two could even be in the same room with each other, but then you meet Peter, a young boy who has suffered so much tragedy in his short life.
This book will keep you page-turning, one very Mennonite and clinging to her new church, and the other set in his Amish ways, how can the two ever get together or should they even try.
A don’t miss book by this talented author.
I received this book through the Publisher Zebra, and was not required to give a positive review.
