She isn’t looking for love. He’s mending a broken heart. It will take divine intervention for these two to get together.
Local Amish schoolteacher Lilly Lapp is tired of weddings, afraid of horses, and immersed in caring for her depressed mother. But when Jacob Wyse, a handsome horse breeder from her small community rescues her from a dangerous accident, Lilly discovers a renewed interest in life and the possibility of love.
Yet Jacob has lost the one true love of his life to another man and doesn’t care to expose himself to the vulnerabilities of loving again.
God works to bring this unlikely pair into a sweet romance to produce a pattern of faith, which leads to the creation and comfort of Lilly’s Wedding Quilt.
This is my second time reading an Amish romance. I have to say that I was thoroughly caught up in the story from the first page.
The writing style stayed true to the culture being portrayed in this story. The characters were wonderfully described. I could picture myself standing amongst them.
Jacob’s had one true love and her name was Sarah. However, she married another man. This caused Jacob’s heart to break. He didn’t want another woman. He only wanted Sarah.
Lilly had no desire to love or marry. She spent all of her time working or taking care of her mother. She had no time for herself.
The interplay between the two of them as they try to fight the love that has sparked between them is intense.
This is the second book in a series. I know that I will be searching out the stores to get the first one.
