Morning Star by Charlotte Hubbard






When five maidels join forces to turn an abandoned barn into an Amish marketplace, the unmarried women have community in mind. But their fledgling enterprise promises to reap surprising rewards for each in turn, including the gift of unexpected love . . .

For Regina Miller, the new Morning Star Marketplace is a chance to share her secret work with the world--without revealing herself. Old Order Amish forbid the creation of art without purpose, but without a husband, Regina has been free to explore the joy of painting in her attic. Yet when Gabe Flaud's curiosity leads him to speculate that Regina herself is the painter, the full weight of their community's judgement falls on her shoulders.

When Gabe stands up to defend Regina, questioning the Order's restrictions, he reveals his own guilty secret and is shunned along with her. Forced to turn to each other for companionship, the young couple must learn to balance their own needs with their deep faith . . . and a love that will show them all things are possible.

About The Author






Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard (a.k.a. Naomi King) writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle in her new Seasons of the Heart series. Like her heroine, Miriam Lantz, Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people—to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle, and the foundation of her earlier Angels of Mercy series. She’s a deacon, a dedicated church musician and choir member, and when she’s not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.

My Review





I am thrilled to have read the first book in a new series by Charlotte Hubbard, come journey in Morning Star.
There are five maidels here and this one is about Regina Miller, and what great friends they are, considering what happens to this dear young lady, they are there for her.
Of course there is a young man that has piqued the interest of our girl, but will he ever notice her?
There is also a lot of excitement over the idea of opening a marketplace on a dilapidated property, but to convince all the naysayers and help their districts school.
Journey along here with Regina and her dear friends, there are chuckles and tears, and a story that will fly off the pages.
There is also a teaser at the end of the next maidels story!

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