A Promise of Forgiveness: An Uplifting Amish Romance by Jo Ann Brown

 

 

Every little secret is a chain to the past…

For Amish widow Naomi Ropp, moving back to her parents’ Bliss Valley home—with her boisterous twin toddler boys—is a chance to start over and bury the painful secrets of her marriage forever. But her life is turned upside down once again when she learns she’s not the only one hiding things. The parents she believed were always open and honest have been keeping a secret her whole life. And now her only confidant is her father’s new employee—a handsome Amish man who was once her childhood tormentor.

Samuel King knows more than anyone should about mistakes—and the way he treated Naomi is at the top of his list. But the shock of seeing her pretty face again is quickly overshadowed when they find a slumbering boppli abandoned on his porch. Caring for the sweet newborn together is finally bringing some peace to their troubled pasts. But when a spark leads to growing feelings as they start to look toward the future, Samuel must find a way to convince Naomi to trust the man he's become…and the promise of new love.

My Review


 
The beginning of this book quickly drew me in, surprise after surprise drops then we get to the second chapter and each continuing and the surprises kept dropping, what a page turner.
Forgiveness, is again part of this second book in the Bliss Valley series, and yes, they can be read alone.
I never saw how it would all play out, love how this author’s mind works, it is a gift!
Now I’m looking forward to the next book in this series!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
