Samuel's Return (The Amish of Southern Maryland Book 6) by Susan Lantz Simpson

 

The first scent of blooming flowers, fresh green fields, and invigorating days of sunshine. A Southern Maryland Amish spring bursts with hope, bright promise—and a practical young widow’s chance to try love anew . . .
 
With two lively daughters, an active newborn, and a huge farm to tend, Lena Troyer has no time for impossible what-ifs. She just can’t let herself be distracted by Samuel Mast’s unexpected return. Even though her childhood sweetheart became the man she longed to marry, Samuel never saw or wrote Lena again after his family abruptly moved away. Now a widow, Lena is determined to keep Samuel's helpful ways and irresistible good humor at arm’s length—no matter how often he’s there when she needs him most . . .
 
A restless father with a shameful secret was the reason Samuel’s many letters never got to Lena. And it’s why Samuel can’t bring himself to tell Lena the truth—though he’s doing everything he can to regain her trust and prove he’s worthy of the resourceful woman she’s become. But as a rival for his affections complicates matters, Samuel and Lena must somehow put the past to rest—and believe that faith, honesty, and rekindled love will be more than enough to finally build a family together.

My Review


 
Lena Troyer has been through so much, she has two young daughters and an infant son, the baby was born after her husband died. Now she is dreading seeing Samuel Mast, the man who broke her teenage heart.

Samuel has finally returned to Maryland, it took him ten years, but things were not in his control. He has purchased some property, and is in the process of opening his blacksmith shop, and you see him hoping to win Lena's heart again.

The old story that can't go home again, well we hope that Samuel is able to.

The author kept my attention, there are tears, and some chuckles, and I wanted to see those desserts that kept appearing!

This book is part of a series, but it can be read alone!

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