A HEART MADE NEW
Paperback: 336 pages
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers (October 1, 2012)
A Heart Made New is book two in The Bliss Creek Amish. In this story, Annie is trying to suppress her feelings for David. David is in the middle of a battle with cancer, and feels he has no right to Annie’s heart when he doesn’t know how much time he has left to live. A helpful distraction for Annie comes when a homeless, pregnant young woman comes to their town and needs a place to stay. Annie makes it her mission to help them and show them God’s love. In the meantime, Annie’s brother, Josiah, who nearly died from too much partying during his rumspinga, is still struggling between the Amish and the English world.
I read book one in this series, but it’s been a while. It didn’t take long to get back in the story again, though. I enjoyed how open (most!) of the Amish were in letting “Englisher’s” into their homes in order to help them. I don’t really have any outstanding comments to make about the book, but I did enjoy it and was happy with the way the story ended.
