A Mother For Leah by Rachel L Miller is a coming of age for Leah, an Amish girl who has lost her Mother when she was young. It is also a story of her Dad finally being able to ask God to help him find a new wife and being able to love again.
I like this book because it is a heart warming story of family, love, community, and faith. Moving on after a loss is never easy but with faith and love you can and this book shows how trusting God makes it possible.
The book moves a little slow and is a bit tedious with the Amish language thrown in, but it is a good heartwarming story. It is has a little romance thrown in with a lot of fun, simple community life, faith and family. I think one of my favorite parts was when Jacob comes calling on Leah to ask if he could court her. You could almost feel the excitement and nervousness that they both feel because it is all new to them. I didn't care much for Naomi's daughter Rebecca. She seemed a bit self centered and not happy for the new family she was welcomed into when her mother was marrying Leah's father Samuel. I wonder if she is going to cause trouble for them or be won over by the love of her new family.
If you like a good book set in an Amish family and community, with love, romance, faith and family then this book is for you.
I received this book from the author for my honest opinion and review.
