A Lovely Community


I was so excited to read another book from Diane Christner. It seems it has been to long since I had last read from this author.

Christner take you to a small town in Oregon called Sweet Life. In this Mennonite town you will meet Carly Blosser who is different and unique as they get. With a true heart for the elderly you will find Carly working at an assisted living home. It is there that she becomes touched by the residents.   Carly develops a very close relation with each resident and is reminded of how much she misses her own parents. Carly goes out of her way to help one of the residents to find her long lost sweetheart with wood shop owner Adam Lapp could this bring Adam and Carly together? Find out in Christner's Covered Bridge Charm.

Christner never disappoints in her writings and I am always looking forward to her books. I encourage you to purchase this or one of Christner other books you won't be disappointed.

I received a copy of this book for my review.

Your in for a Treat




Excerpt


He shook off the uneasy feeling he had, and walked up the path to the park, determined to enjoy his weekly ritual for the last time. It was a Monday afternoon, his one day every week when his sister, Belinda, was too preoccupied with her laundry chore to notice if he slipped away for a couple of hours just to breathe. Truth be told he'd walked an imaginary line on which he'd teere, ever since Simon and Miranda had gone away for their rumschpringe-without him.

Wow! is the first word that came out of my mouth when I finished reading Katie Kings' His Amish Baby. 

When Noah Byler made a choice not to leave his Amish community, he had never forgiven himself, for letting his best friend Simon and seeing his love Miranda go off into the English world. On his weekly ritual he always had hoped he would run into his best friend or even Miranda, but he never thought in his mind he would see what he saw that one Monday. He knew that something must be done and he had this one chance to make a difference.


I throughly enjoyed this story and was sorry when it ended. Author Katie King, truly has a way with her words, that she hooked me right from the beginning. When I finished reading I thought to myself, what is the true lesson we can learn from these characters? Well, that would be that love never fails and that we need to learn how to forgive those who have hurt us deeply. I can not wait to read the next book in this series.

I was given a copy of this book via e-reader for my honest review which I have given above.
