Product Description

Esther Beachy enjoys working for an elderly woman who is wheelchair bound. Her client, Anna Petersheim, is pleasant and tells captivating stories. Plus, her home is quiet and far more peaceful than Esther's, with so many siblings. She only dreads the day when Anna's grandson, Victor, will return from the river to take over the farm,. She and Victor were classmates years ago, and he's been an obnoxious flirt who paid attention to every girl but her.

A seasoned riverboat captain, Victor Petersheim has seen his share of trials. He left the Amish after the death of his parents and siblings in a house fire for which he still feels responsible. Now, after year of working on the Mississippi River, he returns home to claim the farm that he inherited from his grandparents--and, hopefully to repair some of the damaged relationships and broken hearts that he left in his wake.

Publisher's Description

A Compassionate Young WomanEsther Beachy enjoys working for an elderly woman who is wheelchair bound. Her client, Anna Petersheim, is pleasant and tells captivating stories.

Even so, their relationship remains as tumultuous as a shaken snow globe, like the one Esther finds at a garage sale and gives to Viktor's grandmother as a token of affection. Viktor isn't the only man with an eye on Esther, and soon it looks as if she's ready to make a future with someone else. Will the two go their separate ways again? Or will the hand of God work something beautiful out of their angst and agitation?

    I found my first book by Laura V. Hilton a beautifully romantic, angst-filled read. However, there were many short 2-3 word sentences that kept the story from flowing smoothly and gave it a choppy feeling. But in spite of that the storyline was intriguing and the conclusion satisfying. A wunderbaar love story that was very hard to put down!

    Snow Globe, book 1 of The Amish of Jamestown***** by Laura V. Hilton

    Esther Beachy enjoys working for Anna and Reuben Petersheim. But she is not looking forward to the return of their grandson, Viktor, in a few weeks. She wonders if he has changed since he's been gone.

    Viktor has been working on a riverboat on the Mississippi river for years, trying to forget the past. On his return to his grandparents farm he is surprised to find Esther...a grown-up Esther...staying there to care for his grandmother. Viktor and Esther are drawn to each other, but Esther already has a boyfriendHenry Beiler. Who will she choose, Viktor or Henry? What path does God have for them to take?

    There is a lot more to the story, but I do not want to give anything away. I really enjoyed this book. I like the way Laura Hilton weaves a story with characters that capture your heart. I found myself rooting for Esther and Viktor to overcome the challenges they faced. Really did not like Henry much. If Esther chooses Henry she would have a very different life than if she chooses Viktor. Past tragedies impact Viktor's life and future decisions. Can he forgive himself for something he feels responsible for?

    This is a very different Amish work of fiction and I love it! Laura V. Hilton has written a beautiful story of love, forgiveness. abuse, death, and mercy. Esther and Viktor are two of the most likable characters. I fell in love with them immediately and was rooting for them to fall in love and marry, but life has not that simple for the two young people. They have a long road to travel and Henry is already engaged to Esther and is not willing to give her up. Henry was a character that I quickly developed a distaste for. I expected a Christmas story based on the title, but it wasn't and I was pleasantly surprised by the way the story got its title as well. I rate this 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    Esther is pledged to a family-arranged, loveless future, and her destiny appears troubling. Caregiver to an elderly Amish couple, Esther discovers what truly makes a relationship happy and strong. Reuben and Anna Petersheim share a love-filled marriage that Esther dreams about and desires for her own life. The return of Viktor, the Petersheim's errant grandson could be her undoing.

    Laura V. Hilton creates real-life drama and passion in her characters that strongly connect the reader to her stories. Her research and knowledge of the Amish lifestyle is a strong point in developing creative yet believable situations that coincide with Amish customs and beliefs. In "The Snow Globe" Esther's relationship with her intended is not a love story, only an obligation. When Viktor is introduced into the story a strong attraction forms between the two, and love becomes the theme. As the main characters face opposition and insurmountable obstacles that stand in the way of a shared life, their love for one another only escalates. Prayer and strong faith are powerful attributes that run throughout this story. The first book in The Amish of Jamesport series starts this series off with an explosive relationship that will take your breath away. I became so attached to the characters in this book that I ached for them when troubles came their way. Pick up a copy of this book and enjoy a roller coaster ride of "verboten" love!
