The Preacher's Daughter (The Infamous Amish Book 2) by Patricia Johns

 

For a Pennsylvania Amish family whose faith has been tested, the blessings of marriage, home, and togetherness seem impossible. Patricia Johns brings her trademark warmth to this story of love’s powerful redemption.
 
With her preacher father in prison for fraud, Elizabeth Yoder’s life in the community of Bountiful has been painfully uprooted. Mindful of wearing out her welcome with her family, she jumps at the chance to stay with elderly Bridget Lantz while the woman’s daughter is away. Elizabeth has secret plans to leave for another Amish community where she might get a fresh start, but here with Bridget, she feels comfortable—until Bridget’s strapping grandson, Solomon, returns from eight years with the English, and inspires feelings that shake Elizabeth’s resolution . . . 
 
Solomon has had his own trouble with the law, after falling in with some bad influences. He’s paid the price, despite his innocence, but the Amish are even more wary of him than they are of spirited Elizabeth. With good reason, he supposes—he’s not sure he’s ready to commit to this way of life again, especially since the Englishers are the ones offering him solutions. The only thing that seems certain is his attraction to Elizabeth. As they strive to find their places in the community, and with each other, can they open their hearts to the blessing of love?

My Review


 

This is the second book in the Infamous Amish series, and yes, you can read this one alone, but the first book does play into this book
Surprising, we have yet another fellow in this small Amish Community who has been in jail, and one young woman’s who life was irreconcilable changed by her father’s actions now is falling for a convicted felon. We think how could this be happening in a community of faith, but circumstances and being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
We watch as people are wary of being around him, and he begins to feel he must leave this community in order to survive, but what he didn’t plan on was having an attraction to Lizzy.
We now need people to live their faith, and offer forgiveness, can anything come from this attraction?
Answers come and surprises happen, some I never saw coming, and in the end we get some idea of how things are going to work out, and now it looks like we will be reunited with these folks and find out what will happen to those we have come to care about!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
