Someone to Trust (North Country Amish #5) by Patricia Davids


On an Amish matchmaking trip,

can she avoid falling in love?

Esther Burkholder has no interest in her stepmother’s matchmaking when her family visits an Amish community in Maine. Deaf from a young age, she’s positive a hearing man couldn’t understand the joys and trials of living in a silent world. But Gabe Fischer is certainly handsome, hardworking and brave. More importantly, he sees the real Esther. Might this Amish bachelor be her unexpected perfect match?



About The Author

I was born and raised in Northcentral Kansas. I'm a farmer's daughter, but I now make my home in the city of Wichita. I'm an RN. Neonatal nursing has been the main focus of my career. What can I say? I love babies. I was invited to the highschool graduation of a baby I took care of. Talk about making me feel old!

In June of 2011 I became a widow after my husband of 36 years and 11 months died from multiple brain tumors. It was a very sad time, but thanks to the three f's, my faith, my family and my friends, life is moving forward. I have four brothers, one daughter and two grandchildren who all work at making me feel loved.

I'm the author of more than 30 books and I'm currently writing a series called The Brides of Amish Country for Love Inspired.



My Review

This is the fifth book in this series, and yes I have enjoyed them all, but this definitely can be read alone.

What a treat we are given a relatively new step-mother that is plotting with her cousin and becoming hopefully a matchmaker. Her cousin has marriageable age sons and she has these new daughters that need husbands, they have a solution.

We are there as these young couples meet and go about their everyday life, along with some picnics, and bird watching.

One of the girls is deaf, and it is hereditary, and she is sure not interested in finding a husband, but she is a talented artist and seamstress, and one of the boys sure needs help.

I so enjoyed this story, and loved how it highlighted a disability, but showed an everyday person, and we see how she struggles, but gives her all.

Will there be any matches? You will find out by the end of this read!

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