An Amish Mother's Secret Past (Green Mountain Blessings #3) by Jo Ann Brown

Every woman deserves a fresh start…

Can an Amish widow’s past

cost her a future filled with love?
Widow Rachel Yoder has a secret: she’s a military veteran trying to give her children a new life among the Amish. Though she’s drawn to bachelor Isaac Kauffman, she knows she can’t tell him the truth—or give him her heart. With her forbidden past, Rachel can never be the perfect Plain wife he’s looking for.

My Review

This is the third book that I have read in this series, so it was nice to meet up with some of the past characters, who do play a role in this book.
This time it is Isaac who has his heart turned with the arrival of an Amish widow with two sweet little girls, and they meet in rather upsetting way, at least for his shoes!
We journey as this community is attempting to get back on its feet after a devastating flood, and they are almost finished with the rebuilding, hoping to be done by Christmas.
Widow Rachel Yoder is hiding a big secret, especially for an Amish woman, and as it unfolds we don’t know if she can stay in the safety of his world she want to be apart of.
This story has a little of many things, jealousy, Faith, forgiveness, and hope for the future!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
