Amish Homecoming by Jo Ann Brown ~ Review

Amish HomecomingLucie's Review:

Leah comes home at last, bringing her young niece, Mandy, with her. Leah has been the only mother that Mandy has known, ever since Leah's twin brother's disabling accident shortly after Mandy's birth, and his wife left them.

Leah never meant to leave the Amish, but when her brother left he ricked her into coming with him, and she stayed because Johnny and Mandy needed her.  She wrote her family every week, but the letters always came back unopened.

Ezra and Leah where childhood friends, and she could always depend on him when she and her brother had a falling out. But by the time that he realized that he wanted more than friendship with her, she was gone. Now that she's back, will he get a second shot at winning her heart?

Leah struggles to be at home back among the Amish, she has always kept the plain ways, but now that she is back her father refuses to talk to her, and Mandy longs for Philadelphia where her best friend lives.

I love how Leah's parents both welcome Mandy and shower her with love. And Shep is a great addition to the family, a service dog to Johnny, but also very protective of Mandy.

Ezra's brothers are very nice, and encouraging, fixing up is courting buggy and telling him to use it!

A fantastic book with great relationship building dialog, that shows the multiple emotions at play. Wonderful book about second chances and fresh starts, forgiveness, and repairing relationships. Definitely recommend :)
