The Wonder of Your Love

Just finished reading best selling author, Beth Wiseman's newest book The Wonder of Your Love. I enjoy reading books about the Amish community. Something about their simple, uncomplicated lifestyle is so appealing.

The Wonder of Your Love is a sweet love story about forgiveness and moving on. It is not your usual Amish fiction story. The secondary characters aren't what one expects to find when delving into a book about present day people living as though they were the 1800's. This twist added to the stories intrigue.

I enjoyed the book and am glad I had the opportunity to read it. I would recommend it to anyone that is a fan of Amish fiction.

Publishers description:

Katie Ann lost the love of her life. Then God offers her a new beginning in Colorado.

Katie Ann Stolzfus lives in the small Amish community of Canaan, Colorado. At forty she is widowed and raising her first child. But baby Jonas will never know his father, and Katie Ann wonders if her Heavenly Father hasn't forgotten about her as well. Is it really God's plan for her to be a single parent?

Eli Detweiler has come to Canaan for a wedding and a long vacation. Having raised six children following the death of his young wife, Eli is finally an empty-nester. He's enjoying the slower pace of having no one to care for but himself.

When Katie Ann and Eli meet, there is an instant connection. Yet as strong as the attraction is, they both acknowledge that a romance would never work. He is done parenting, while she has just begun.

But as their friendship slowly blossoms into feelings that are as frightening as they are intoxicating, Katie Ann and Eli question if the plans they made for themselves are in line with God's plans.

Can Katie Ann entrust her heart to another man, and rediscover the wonder of God's love?


  1. Hi Jamie, following you over here from Seekerville. Great minds you know!

    This book sounds like it has a great plot. I've never read Amish fiction, though I do have one on my shelf that I hope to read soon.


    P.S. And happy napping!
