Publisher's Description

For fans of Beverly Lewis and Cindy Woodsmall, Rosalind Lauer’s moving Lancaster Crossroads novel A Simple Hope reveals the ways that faith, love, and charity bring people together in a devoted Amish community.
 
HOPE SHINES THROUGH
LIGHTING A PATH IN THE DARKNESS
 
Ever since the accident that confined him to a wheelchair, James Lapp has fought relentlessly to regain his strength. He knows he must be whole and healthy to run his family’s orchard and provide for Rachel King, the young woman he plans to marry. But when he defies his father’s wishes and seeks treatment outside their close-knit Amish community, James discovers just how long and treacherous the road to recovery will be. Unwilling to saddle a wife with his troubles, James decides he must part with the woman he loves.
 
Rachel won’t give up her dream of being a devoted wife to James, and it breaks her heart to watch him shut her out. Then their lives change forever when a runaway Englisher girl hides in the Lapp orchard. Rachel and James feel they must risk the disapproval of their friends and neighbors to help her. Will the young stranger bring them closer—or will the consequences of a shared secret tear them apart once and for all?
 
Revealing the wonder of plain, everyday blessings, A Simple Hope burns bright with the power of love to heal even the deepest wounds.

    This review was written for A Simple Hope, Lancaster Crossroads Series #2.
    I didn't think I was ever going to find a copy of this one.

    The local library hasn't bought a copy yet and I was itching to read it.

    Fortunately, Random House is supportive of Book Bloggers/Reviewers_

    Rosalind Lauer has a very special talent. It takes a very strong talent to be able to find more and more stories to tell about one particular community - especially without the feeling that the same material is being recycled.

    Rosalind Lauer has managed to write 5 books, 1 eBook and another book to come about the community in Halfway. And not one of those stories have been even remotely the same.

    However, there have been some marvelous crossovers. Rosalind has invited us into a true community.

    And we get to know a little bit more of it with every book. I know I'm looking forward to A Simple Charity - book 3 in this current series, and I hope there will be many more to come after it!

    Rosalind dealt with one theme in her first series - Faith. And it seems the theme for this series is Healing. In A Simple Faith, we see that healing is not just about the body. That theme continues in this book - A Simple Hope, beautifully. James was only a part of the story in A Simple Faith but A Simple Hope is clearly his story - His and Rachel's.

    We continue to see our favorite characters from other books and we meet new ones as well but this story is definitely about James and his family and Rachel and the talent God blessed her with.

    It's truly amazing that Rosalind can keep writing about such serious issues without falling into a soap opera-feel. But there is never any feeling of being embroiled in the kind of drama you would find in one of those. What we see here is real-life drama, plain and simple - with a wonderful twist of being found in the plain and simple Amish community.

    It's difficult to believe that Rosalind Lauer is not Amish herself.

    She certainly writes with an accuracy that makes you feel as if she is, or as if she grew up Amish. It's an incredible thing. You would never know these weren't written by someone who is very much embedded in that faith.

    And yet, they're also written with such flair. It doesn't take more than a few paragraphs to be completely draw in to the story.

    I look forward to reading many more of Rosalind Lauer's books. I'm already itching to get my hands on A Simple Charity - which is scheduled to be released in October of this year.

    Disclaimer: I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
