About the book:
What if you have waited to find love only to be rejected when it finally comes?
Lenore Lapp is an Amish schoolteacher in her late twenties still living at home with her parents and grandparents. She thought love had passed her by until she meets Jesse Smucker, a widower with a baby daughter. She quickly falls in love with them both and accepts Jesse’s proposal of marriage, but Jesse breaks off their engagement when he realizes he can’t marry only for convenience.
Resigned to living single, Lenore throws herself into caring for her elders. While working in her grandmother’s garden, she digs up an old jar. Will Lenore find healing for her broken heart and solve long-buried family secrets by reading the note contained inside?
Publication Date: August 1, 2019
Publisher: Shiloh Run Press
Genre: Amish fiction
Series: The Prayer Jars #3
My thoughts: Book 3 of The Prayer Jars wraps up the series in a way that will leave readers satisfied. While the primary focus of this story is Lenore Lapp we also get to catch up with Sara and Michelle from the previous books. In addition to catching up with characters, there are new ones to meet and grow to love.
Fans of Wanda Brunstetter are sure to love this book and the conclusion to the series. It is a well-written, down-to-earth read that is hard to put down and will have readers wanting to visit Amish country as soon as possible. I recommend this book to fans of the author and the genre. It can be read as a standalone so if you haven’t read the other two books in the series that is ok though I highly recommend reading those as well.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review. All opinions are mine.
