Strength in the Storm (Johns Mill Amish Romance #2) by Laurel Blount

 

In this touching Amish romance, a brokenhearted woman and a steadfast man discover that the safest place to weather tragedy is in each other’s arms.

After the murder of both her parents, Emma Hochstedler returns to the small community of Johns Mill, hoping to resume her quiet existence. Reclaiming her place proves harder than expected—especially now that a movie is being made about her family’s loss. But then, an old friend offers her a lifeline that gives her new purpose.
 
Amish builder Samuel Christner is the biggest—and the strongest—man in town. In fact, the gentle giant has only one weakness—Emma. Even though she broke his heart, he won’t let his childhood sweetheart face her troubles alone. He hires Emma as a nurse for his elderly aunt…and finds himself falling for her all over again.
 
But while romance blooms, storm clouds gather. And when darkness falls, it will take all Sam’s strength—and all their love—to see them through.

My Review

 
What a great read, just as good as the first in this series! Now the author has done a great job of getting you up to date so you know basically what happened in the first book, but you will want to pick it up too, you won’t regret it!
In this second book, Trevor is still missing, Caleb has left, and the rest of the Hochstedler family is still picking up the pieces! We are with Emma as she lives her faith as an Amish woman, and we see her put to the test with Sam’s Aunt Ruth!
We are given a story rich with family, forgiveness, and throw in a bit of sweet romance and you have a real page turner. I loved that we are gifted with an epilogue!

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