The Wonder of Your Love, by Beth Wiseman, is a sweet story of a 40-year-old Amish widow named Katie Ann who is struggling to raise her baby son alone. She meets an Amish widower, Eli, who has raised his 6 children and is looking forward to spending time travelling and enjoying a life with fewer responsibilities. Eli is attracted to Katie Ann, but not interested in starting another family. Katie Ann was betrayed by her first husband, and is afraid to trust another man. Though they have a lot in common, neither of them is interested in anything but friendship—but God has other plans.
Eli’s family lives far away, and neither he nor Katie Ann wants to move away from those they love. Despite their growing attraction for each other, there are obstacles to overcome before they can find happiness together.
This is a well-written, enjoyable book. I liked the characters and the plot kept me interested. The secondary characters are involved in subplots that add to this story and also make it clear there will be future books in this series. This story was easy to follow even though I haven’t read the first book in the Land of Canaan series. I recommend it to anyone who likes stories about the Amish, or romances.
The Wonder of Your Love was given to me by the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for review.
