Meanwhile, as James Graber and Abby Lambright prepare for their long-awaited nuptials, folks gather from far and wide. Amanda's nephew Jerome has long been smitten with James's sister Emma and wants to seize this chance to woo her. But Emma's been burned once and is twice shy of trusting the fun-loving, never-serious Jerome. As Emma and Jerome struggle to understand each other, and find the courage to make a leap of faith, the Brubakers face a bigger challenge than they first anticipated and begin to discover just what it means to fight...the Amish way.

“Frustration and sorrow make King’s characters three-dimensional and believable. Readers of Janette Oke and Beverly Lewis will enjoy.”—Library Journal
“The very talented Naomi King instantly pulls you into the lives and loves in this small Amish community…King has an amazing talent for developing realistic characters that have to grapple with life issues and through faith find workable solutions for themselves and others.”—Fresh Fiction
“A superbly written, engaging Amish novel that will tug at your heartstrings…King does a fine job of continuing to create that small town feel.”—Reviews from the Heart
“What distinguishes this from many other Amish romances is how it shows that forbearance and forgiveness take a good deal of work, and the Amish, like everybody else, gossip, bicker, and sometimes have less than ideal family lives….King has created enough open-ended characters to entice the reader back to Cedar Creek for more.”—Publishers Weekly
“King’s lyrical style shines in a tender tale of how love and forgiveness heal broken hearts and restore a family and a community...Readers will look forward to more Cedar Creek stories.”—Marta Perry, author of the Pleasant Valley series
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Back In Cedar CreekDecember 3, 2014MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved my visit back in Cedar Creek, and my time spent with old friends. We are up-dated on everyone here, and some of the focus on this book is Emma Graber, as we also prepare for the wedding of her brother James and Abby Lambright. We get to spend time with Amanda and Wyman Brubaker and her nephew Jerome and their blended family.
What a sweet time here becoming fully absorbed in the Amish culture, and even take a sleigh ride, such fun. Not everything is rosy, but love how these folks face adversity, and let their faith and prayer lead them in their decisions.
Emma does have a rough time during this story, and the Community tries to rally around her, she does seem interested in Jerome, but he has already had two broken engagements. What could be the problem, and does she wants to be number three?
We end up snowbound at the Brubakers with Emma and her Dad, and then some surprise visitors appear, wonder how they got there? Some excitement is about to happen in Emmas life, and she appears to have developed some backbone.
Dont miss this sweet read, and if you havent read the other books dont let that keep you from enjoying this one, it can stand alone, but dont deny yourself the great pleasure of reading the first book in this series, Amanda Weds A Good Man.
I received this book through Goddess Fish Promotions, and was not required to give a positive review.
