Esther is far from thrilled about her stepmother's grand matchmaking trip, deaf from the age of ten, she believes that a hearing man would be at all interested in her.
A heartwarming story, I loved Esther from the beginning, and I liked the insights that this book brought into the complications of a non-hearing person living among the Amish. I admired how she didn't let the obstacles hold her back.
Gabe is a fantastic hero, he is kind and thoughtful, he takes the time to make sure that Esther feels included. He isn't a fan of his cousins grand matchmaking schemes, but he is clever, he captured my heart with his thoughtfulness.
Overall, this is a well written read with a full cast of characters, humorous moments, and faith. I loved how the author brought the difference dynamics of the family to life, with strong dialogue, and great interaction, but my favorite part was this book's inspiring heroine. Heartwarming story, with great characters, this is Amish fiction at its best!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
