Softly Blows the Bugle (The Amish of Weaver's Creek, #3) by Jan Drexler


When Elizabeth Kaufman received the news of her husband's death at the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863, she felt only relief. She determined that she would never be at the mercy of any man again, even if it meant she would never have a family of her own. Then Aaron Zook comes home with her brother when the war ends two years later.

Despite the severity of his injuries, Aaron resolves to move West and leave the pain of the past behind him. He never imagined that the Amish way of life his grandfather had rejected long ago would be so enticing. That, and a certain widow he can't get out of his mind.

Yet, even in a simple community, life has a way of getting complicated. Aaron soon finds that while he may have left the battlefield behind, there is another fight he must win--the one for the heart of the woman he loves.
Welcome back to the Amish community at Weaver's Creek, where the bonds of family and faith bind up the brokenhearted.



About The Author

Jan Drexler brings a unique understanding of Amish traditions and beliefs to her writing. Her ancestors were among the first Amish, Mennonite, and Brethren immigrants to Pennsylvania in the 1700s, and their experiences are the inspiration for her stories. Jan lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota with her husband of thirty-eight years, where she enjoys hiking in the Hills and spending time with their expanding family.   



My Review

This is the third book in this series, and yes, it can be read alone. If you have followed this series you already know about Ruben, and now I was cringing that Elizabeth was going to make the same mistake again!
The Civil War is now over, and we have a new arrival in this community in Ohio, Aaron Zook, an Amish name, but?
This story is so good, and will quickly have you page turning, and looking for answers. Who can Elizabeth trust? Surely one of her own, not a newcomer?
Secrets are revealed, and you will cringe, but the loving aspect of this community will warm your heart!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell,  and was not required to give a positive review.
