Joshua's Mission (Plain and Simple Miracles #2)Joshua's Mission by Vannetta Chapman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vannetta Chapman writes series Plain and Simple Miracles,Book #2 is Joshua's Mission

This is the story of two brothers...a Hurricane on the gulf coast -devastation and rebuild-amish volunteers.

Joshua is a little older then his brother Alton and the younger one is going trough what is call Rumspringa in their community. sowing his wild oats.

The Bishop learns of the rebuild and volunteers needed on the coast -he suggest that Joshua and his brother go help along with Becca and Sarah from the community.

Charlie and his dog Quitz from the gulf have lived through the hurricane and also help with the workers. Charlie has a friend that he met in the area and has sort of adopted them as his family and one of the homes rebuilt is to go to them, a grandmother raising her daughter's two children.

Becca had wanted to get to know Joshua better and this gives them perfect opportunity to do so. Many in the community have worried about Alton and they are hoping this will help him to grow up. which seems doubtful for quite some time.
I so enjoyed reading this story and seeing the changes from amish living help all involved.
Upon returning many changes have helped all involved and life as they had lived is now different. Joshua wants to court Becca and they are so happy,Alton has matured and Sarah too has become closer friends with all.

Amish Sweethearts (Neighbors of Lancaster County, #2)Amish Sweethearts by Leslie Gould
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Series Neighbors of Lancaster County. book #2 by Leslie Gould

I read the first book in this series but had I not , the story would still have been a good one to read.
As children Zane Beck and Lila Lehman were neighbors and best as they grew up there was a strong friendship that was slowly turning into something that frightened them..The reason? He was not amish and she was, this makes a lot of difference to a amish father.
Lila was torn knowing her father and the community wanted her to start courting a good amish boy one who was son of the Bishop that she had grown up with also. She did admire him and knew she never wanted to leave her faith. Her heart was so confused.
You will enjoy reading this story and seeing how it all comes out.

I received this book from Bethany house publishers to read and review,thanks so much.
