Review: The Amish Widower by Virginia Smith

About this Book

Is It Time for This Widower to Give Love One More Chance?

After the devastating loss of his second wife, Seth Hostetler believes a lasting love is beyond all hope. A year has passed, and his mamm and sister are determined to see him happily married once again. But how can he open his heart to another woman when their relationship could end in tragedy?

On an outing with his family, Seth comes across an Amish potter hard at work and jumps at the chance to take a seat at the wheel. He takes quickly to this creative outlet, pouring his long-buried emotions into each piece he shapes. Unfortunately, the fancy nature of his art draws the disapproval of his district’s leadership.

His work puts him in the path of Leah, an Englisch woman employed by the Amish to sell their wares to tourists. Despite her aloofness, something about her speaks to Seth’s wounded soul. But what is he to do when the things he wants most threaten to pull him away from the life he’s committed to live?

A compelling novel of second chances and the power of God to redeem hearts and dreams, set in the inviting Amish community of Lancaster County.


My Review

Just plain good! (Sorry pun wasn’t originally planned, but it works!)

This is the fourth in the Men of Lancaster series, but written by a different author than the previous three. I only read book three, The Amish Clockmaker,  which was wonderful. This story was very different than the previous one. But very good none the less. From the opening pages it was easy to love Seth and to feel his pain at the loses he had experienced.

Beyond the excellent story, the author reinforces the truth about the danger of unforgiveness and bitterness. Such a sweet, enjoyable story!

Those of you who enjoy Amish should enjoy this one.

I give it 4 stars!

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
