Product Description

As Hannah struggles to adapt to Amish customs, she encounters William Brand, who works in the furniture shop next door. William also feels isolated from the community because of his stutter. Having studied speech therapy in college, Hannah offers to help William improve his speech, and slowly their timid friendship blossoms into deep affection. Still, Hannah is aware that the barriers between them are great. Her late husband, who came from a long line of military men, would object to Amish pacifist beliefs, and she isn't sure if she can raise her son in the community knowing that her late husband would disapprove.

Publisher's Description

Returning to Pleasant Valley is giving Hannah Conroy a much-needed chance at a new life. But now she must discover her true place in the world …
 
Unexpected tragedy has left Hannah without her soldier husband and a home for her baby son, Jamie. Seeking refuge, she comes to live with her aunt in Pleasant Valley, a place she hasn’t seen since childhood, when her parents left the Mennonite faith. Working in her aunt’s bakery is a way for Hannah to get back on her feet, but she isn’t sure if she can live by tradition—or if she and Jamie should stay for good. She finds an unexpected, sympathetic listener in furniture maker William Brand. His stutter makes him feel like a permanent outsider in his Amish community, and he understands her loneliness.
 
Hannah is irresistibly drawn to the shy, caring William, and her education in speech therapy makes it natural for her to want to help him speak more easily. But how can she encourage his attention when she might someday leave Pleasant Valley, and when her father-in-law, a military officer, is scheming to take Jamie away from her? As William seeks the courage to stand up for the woman who believes in him, Hannah must decide where her true home lies—in the free, ever-changing world she knows, or in the simpler, loving community she’s found…

    BLURB: Returning to Pleasant Valley is giving Hannah Connor a much needed chance to start her life again. But now she must determine her real place in this world.....Hannah is a very determined young lady. She has a lot of spunk to pick up and move back to her Amish beginnings with a young son. She works hard taking care of Jaimie and working at the bakery. She is very lonely but being a widow can be that way. A lot of us can relate to this. She found some of the qualities she was searching for as time went on. She made a very hard decision on where her home really was.

    HANNAH'S JOY is a page turner and one of those don't put down books. It is a tale of fiction but you can place yourself in their shoes. Some of the characters are from previous books so it's almost like you already know them. The book starts with a tragedy. Hannah Connor became an unexpected widow when her soldier husband was killed in the service. This tragedy may cause some readers to reflect on their own lives, with the wars and tragedies we encounter in today's world. It was hard for her to get used to living off the base and taking care of her little one, Jamie. Her husband had never even seen him before he died. Seeking comfort she went to live in Pleasant Valley, a place she hadn't been to since she was a child. She didn't know if she could get used to living plain again after living on an Army base. Hannah had never joined the Amish community. Her parents and her had left years before. Her mother had suffered from depression and had committed suicide. This had a deep, profound effect on Hannah. Hannah lived above her Aunt Paula Schatz's bakery sharing a two bedroom apartment with her aunt and her son, Jaimie. During the day, she worked in the bakery to help her aunt. She was hoping to get back on track and to start living again. She just isn't sure if she can live Amish. She met William Brand, who was a furniture maker and very shy because he had a stuttering problem. Hannah had gone to school to be a Speech Therapist but had to drop out. She offers to help William but he refuses. Hannah is drawn to.......

    I have purchased this series and can't wait for the next. The author brings the families in the story to life and when the book is finished you want the next one to be ready. I some time think I should buy the series and wait to read them after receiving them all but I can't wait the books are so good
