Product Description

Apprenticed blacksmith Jake Miller is skeptical of Priscilla Kinsinger's innate ability to soothe troubled horses, especially when he has own ideas on how to calm them. Six years earlier, Priscilla's mother died in an awful accident at home, and Priscilla's grief over losing her mother was so intense that she was sent to live with relatives in Ohio. She has just returned to Lancaster County.

Not that her homecoming matters to Jake, who is interested in courting lighthearted Amanda Shetler. But Jake's boss is Priscilla's uncle, and when the man asks Jake to help his niece reconnect with community life, he has no choice but to do just that. Surprisingly, he finds himself slowly drawn to the beautiful but emotionally wounded Priscilla.

Publisher's Description

New from bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner, The Amish Blacksmith (Book 2 in The Men of Lancaster County series) explores the men of an Amish community in Lancaster County, how their Amish beliefs play out in their unique roles, and the women who change their lives.

Apprenticed blacksmith Jake Miller is skeptical of Priscilla Kinsinger's innate ability to soothe troubled horses, especially when he has own ideas on how to calm them. Six years earlier, Priscilla's mother died in an awful accident at home, and Priscilla's grief over losing her mother was so intense that she was sent to live with relatives in Indiana. She has just returned to Lancaster County.
Not that her homecoming matters to Jake, who is interested in courting lighthearted Amanda Shetler. But Jake's boss is Priscilla's uncle, and when the man asks Jake to help his niece reconnect with community life, he has no choice but to do just that. Surprisingly, he finds himself slowly drawn to the beautiful but emotionally wounded Priscilla.

Jake then determines to prove to her that it's not her fault her mother died, but what he discovers will challenge everything they both believe about the depth of love and the breadth of forgiveness.

    Review: Enjoyed the majority of the book. I liked Jake and Priscilla, was never sold on Amanda. I did like all the secondary characters like Amos, Owen and the Kinsinger family along with the Miller family. Great sequel and yet a good stand alone book. The thing that I found slow was toward the end. A lot happened yet it seemed to move slower than the beginning and middle. Great ending with believable events throughout. Enjoyed the real faith that was included and scripture use. That was real nice to see slipped in the story with sincere warmth for the scripture picked and used.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Harvest House Publishers for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    Amish Romance

    This story is told in the voice of the blacksmith. I may be the only reader who prefers the third person voice, but if not, please do not let that be the deciding factor in choosing to read this book or not. It is well written, very inspiring and I am glad I gave it a chance. This is the second book in the Men of Lancaster County, and having read this one, I want to go back and read the first one. As far as I can tell, this can stand alone. Jake Miller, the blacksmith is more than one who bends iron for his boss, he is also more than one who can train horses. Priscilla has had a difficult life, and she comes back to Lancaster for what? She does not expect to stay, she has some bad memories of the place. I found this book intriguing as I found out reasons behind some peoples actions. It made me wonder if those I love and see everyday have secret problems that effect them? A well written story that I loved.

    I received this Ebook free from Harvest House Publishers through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions are my own.

    The Amish Blacksmith is a different piece of Amish fiction to me because it tells the story through a male's eyes. I thought it was a pretty good story. There are times where my heart just ached for the characters but a wonderful way of learning of God's grace.

    4 stars.

    The Amish Blacksmith is a refreshing read without a lot of violence, and with an element of mystery to keep the reader turning pages. Jake, who has a gift of working with problem horses, is asked to befriend Priscilla, who left the area following her mother's death which she blamed herself for. What was her part in it, and how could he help her to forgive herself and begin to heal? Meanwhile, Jake discovers that he has to dig deep into his own past to understand the problems of his own heart. This was a satisfying read. I would recommend it because it was entertaining, and yet had a helpful Christian message of healing.

    The Amish Blacksmith is a fascinating book. It's the first book I've read that the main character is the Amish man not the woman and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Mystery and romance are brought out in different ways and I thought the authors were excellent in tying together their storyline. I love there were so many characters and each one had their own unique personality. This book captured my interest from the beginning. The Amish Blacksmith is the second book of The Men of Lancaster County series and I highly recommend reading it.

    I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through Net Galley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.
