The PhotographThe Photograph by Beverly  Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Photograph by Beverly Lewis

Another wonderful story from this author..Lily and her sisters have lost their parents and live in the old family home that a brother will soon move into.  The women are expected to get married and have their own homes.  But then expectations are not always what one expects.
Lily leaves a note and leaves the community in the middle of the night.  Many try to find her and as they find out what has happened leading up to her leaving they are confused and worried.
Eva Esch is the closest to Lily and it seems to have effected her the most.

Jed Stutzman is an amish buggy maker in Ohio who shows up in Eden Valley with a photograph that he believes to be Eva..He soon meets her and a relationship follows in the short time he is there to visit a relative that has a business of buggy making.
You will want to read this tender story and find out if Jed and Eva get past the first stages of friendship.  Will Lily be found?  does she want to live as an English or does she want to come home and just not quite sure how to do it?

I was give this book by Bethany House to read and review with an honest opinion.  thank you.

Unexpected FamilyUnexpected Family by Jill Kemerer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jill Kemerer has written a wonderful LI story "Unexpected Family"

5 years Stephanie has kept a secret, a large one at that from the man she met -married and divorced years ago.  It has bothered her even though she has led a good life and raised a young daughter on her own.  She feels she should let her ex know that he is a father and let the little girl know her father.
Now just how do you think this is going to play out???
Well Jill does a great job of having Tom Sheffield and his ex meet again and learn that he is a father.
Come read this story and learn how two can find forgiveness and learn that Love just might be sweeter the second time around.
