Love's Dwelling (Amish Blessings #1) by Kelly Irvin

 

God always had a plan. But how could falling in love with an Englischer be God’s plan for one young Amish woman? 

Young Cassie Weaver only wants what is expected of an Amish woman: a good Amish husband and a large family. But she’s happy as Job and Dinah Keim’s housekeeper, helping Dinah, who is losing her sight due to diabetes. For two decades the Keims have prayed for the salvation of their two children who left the community in a cloud of shame and mystery. 

Mason knew there was more to his mother’s past than she let on, but nothing could have prepared him for learning about his Amish roots upon his mother’s sudden death. Even more surprising, his mother named her Amish parents, Job and Dinah, as guardians to her five children. Now Mason has to trust that this couple, and their pretty housekeeper, can take care of his younger siblings, even when all he wants is to take care of them himself. 

As the children adjust to this new lifestyle, Mason finds himself pulled back to the Keims’ home. Yes, he wants to see his siblings, but it’s the conversations with Cassie that keep him coming back for more. Is there more to this Amish faith and how does it play into his own past? Cassie guards against her growing feelings for Mason, because there can be no happy ending for a Plain girl in love with an Englisch man . . . right?

My Review


This is a read that will tug at your heartstrings, full of chuckles and tears, and most of all love.

Cassie Weaver is enjoying her job as care taker and housekeeper for Keims, Dinah has severe diabetes, and needs help. Her life and those around her change forever when five or rather six siblings of the Keim's daughter arrive at their doorstep.

The Keim's, Dinah and Job's, hearts are full with the arrival of the unknown Grandchildren, what a blessing.

This is a story that shows that family comes in many forms and then their is love!

I loved the ending of this read, it pulled everything together, along with some cake, and of course, all the units of the family!

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