Product Description

Janna Kauffman's job is a personal shopper for the homebound in the Amish community, which she thoroughly enjoys. However, her focus is quickly shifted when her niece, Meghan, comes to live with her family in an attempt to straighten out her rebellious ways. Unfortunately, Meghan spends more time bailing Meghan out of scrapes and explaining her behavior to Hiram Troyer than she does attending to her job. "Troy" was raised Amish but left the faith after a fatal accident that killed his brother and also a brother of Janna's. Frequent interactions draw Janna and Troy together, rekindling an attraction they first experienced in their youth. What will become of their relationship? And will headstrong Meghan ever tame her ways?

    Katie Detweiler is cursed. Cursed to wind up alone and a maidel while everyone else around her falls in love and gets married. At first, she didn't believe it, but the more her friend Patsy reminded her, the more she began to believe that the lot in life that was falling over her was due to being cursed. Losing her brother Noah in a freak accident has left her growing up alone and has caused her mother to remain in depressed state, leaving her and her father behind to stay with family away from the place that brings only loneliness and sadness.

    Katie has always wanted to take part in the courtship of the Amish like all her friends, but soon realizes that dream will never come true. Patsy has asked her to stand up as part of her wedding part when she learns that Micah's cousin is in town. To Patsy that means all bets are off and she will stop at nothing to ensure that her and Abram Hilty are married this year. Too bad Abram isn't aware of that plan. Leaving his family to avoid his own past, Abram can't help but notice Katie. She's not like all the other girls he has met, that throw themselves at him, but instead seems to not be attracted to his good looks at all. Now if he can only convince her that he is interested.

    When Katie notices Abram's persistent ways to be around her, she believes that he isn't really interested in her, but probably wants to date Patsy. However, Abram manages to persuade Katie that it is her that he wants to date and no one else. But because Katie has grown up believing she is cursed, she believes it's just a prank being played on her by the Amish boys. It will take a lot of convincing on Abram's part and if Patsy has it her way, it will never happen. Things are going to definitely get interesting to say the very least.

    I received Awakened Love by Laura V. Hilton compliments of Whitaker House Publishers and Pump Up Your Book Tours for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own. This is the third book in The Amish of Webster County and it's a mix of Amish Romance, coupled with a twist of suspense as both Abram's and Katie's past come back to disrupt their lives in ways neither one could ever manage. I literally inhaled this one in a couple of hours. This is a first novel with Laura V. Hilton but it definitely won't be my last. I will be going back to read the first two in this series! Her writing style is very easy going and keeps you hooked from the very beginning all the way to the end. I didn't want it to end. With that being said, it's easy to give Awakened Love a true 5 out of 5 stars.

    A Bashful Baker

    Twenty-one-year-old Katie Detweiler loves to bake. When she's hired at a local bed-and-breakfast to do just that, she's excited, especially because the owner promises the shy young woman that she won't have to leave the kitchen. But when her boss's husband requires round-the-clock care, Katie is forced to overcome her shyness and wait on customers, as well. Before long, a "customer" reveals himself to be a private investigator who informs Katie that she was adopted, and that her biological sister needs a bone marrow transplant.

    A Man on the Run

    Twenty-two-year-old Abram Hilty has fled the drama of Shipshewana, Indiana, for Seymour, Missouri, where he's staying with his cousin Micah Graber. His plan is to hide, from a girl he no longer cares about—and also from a cold-blooded killer. Uncomfortable sharing his past and afraid of the consequences, he buries his troubles deep inside. When he meets Katie Detweiler, he is immediately attracted, but his pursuit of her is complicated by the problems of his past.

    An Adventure Unfolds

    As Katie wrestles with questions of identity, she also struggles to navigate her blossoming romance with Abram, in the face of opposition from a jealous friend. As their relationship becomes more serious, Abram can no longer conceal the truth about his past. But parts of that past rear their heads, barring the way for a marriage between them—at least for now. Through dangers and near-death experiences, Katie and Abram must find their way back to each other. But only the power of forgiveness can bring them together for good.

    My Review:

    Finally! A drama with some different elements! Hilton's stories just get better and better. There is a certain credibility that is starting to shape her novels, and I felt this story was very creative and original. You can feel Katie's shyness through the pages, and you sympathize with her plight when she finds out the truth of her past. Every question or doubt she has ever had bubbles to the surface, and she doesn't know what to think or how to feel about the sudden turn of events.

    Then there is Abram on the run, with enough trouble following him to completely eradicate the idea of getting involved with Katie. Despite their unthinkable circumstances, the Abram/Katie relationship kept me involved in the story until the very end. Keeping my attention is somewhat difficult the more I read and review books, but this novel was a refreshing change of pace and a pleasure to read.

    Once again, I was drawn into this latest Amish of Webster County book. I found myself in the same situation as before...hardly able to set the book down because I was so intent on finding out what was going to happen next!

    This story follows Katie Detweiler. She is a shy girl, without very much confidence. She doesn't truly realize how accomplished or pretty she is. This is party because of the influence of a jealous girl in the community who continually belittles Katie. When the new man in town, Abram Hilty, begins to fall for Katie, she is unsure about whether she can really trust him or the feelings that he stirs within her.

    Abram has problems of his own. There are things in his past that he is running from. I was just so very curious throughout the book about what he was running from. It was clear that he was a good man, with good intentions. But there was this heaviness hanging over him whenever he thought about his home community that he had fled from.

    I won't say more about the plot, as I don't want to spoil anyone's read by divulging the twists and turns of the story. I really enjoyed returning to the community and also getting to see how the two couples from the first two books are doing.

    Katie Detweiler is very bashful and is verbally bullied by Patsy Swartz. She manages the the bakery/deli at a local bed and breakfast and is beginning to think she'll never marry and have a family. When Abram Hilty comes to stay with his relatives in Seymour, Missouri he sees Katie and is immediately attracted to her, but so is his cousin Micah.

    Abram tries everything to convince Katie that she will someday be his frau. She doesn't believe him since he has a girlfriend back home in Shipshewana, Indiana and Patsy keeps telling her that she's courting him and they are going to get married. Katie feels like he is wanting to court her because of a dare and everyone in the community is laughing at her.

    Abram is keeping something secret and when Katie discovers a secret about herself her world is turned upside down. Abram is very supportive until he is ordered back to Shipshewana by the Bishops there.

    I didn't think this book could be any better than "Surrendered Love" but I was wrong. Abram so reminded my of my husband when we first met, he was determined that we would be married after only knowing each other for a couple of weeks but I kept telling him no. Well we were married five months after meeting and have now been married 42 1/2 years, so he did win. We didn't have the complications that Katie and Abram had though, so that is where the story differs to begin with.

    Laura may have outdone herself with this series, I loved, loved, loved it! This is one of those series that I feel you must start with the first book as the main characters, the girls, are best friends so each book is a continuance of the previous one, sort of.
