Publisher's Description

A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance to discover love's true way home…

Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith's strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She's never been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt's wealthy mother is determined her son will marry a society woman.

With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances. . .

    A change of heart toward amish fiction.

    Lets just state it up front - I am not normally a Amish fiction fan - I tend to read historical, suspense and contemporary literature as the Amish way of life isnt really a area I know much about. But something about this book drew me in - I guess also it was about two sisters who had left the Amish way of life but still held true to the faith that way of life had instilled.

    Mecca Yost, after being jilted and left at the altar by her fianc by arranged marriage, fees to her sister in Ohio. She doesnt really know what she wants to do with her life now but a change of scene is warranted. Trained as a midwife she finds work as a nurse at the local doctors office and a romance soon blossoms.

    Sadly for Becca, her intendeds mother has other ideas and sets about a campaign to ensure they can never be together. This is one of the things that kept the story interesting - how was Becca ever going to gain a foothold in this family.

    I loved the surprising way this was eventually achieved - it was quite the dramatic turn of events when wasnt expected from the beginnings of the story. A stellar debut novel with a lot of heart and soul. Highly recommended for lovers of any kind of fiction.

    Historical Amish at its Best.

    As this author was new to me, I was not sure how much I was going to enjoy this book. As well, as much as I love the Amish genre, this story was classed as historical Amish. Historical romances are definitely NOT my favorite, however I must say that I am delighted to say that I was not disappointed in this tale, not one bit! By Chapter Two, my attention was captured and I was totally engrossed in the plot to the very last page.

    The characters were well described in a realistic manner, making them easy with whom to identify . Becca became a good friend who endeared herself to me. I wanted to jump into the storyline at times and give her a big hug and tell her that everything would work out. Her fears, challenges, worries, as well as her joys. became mine. Matt was the perfect gentleman and I easily pictured him as the story unfolded. I must admit that I became very angry at Matt's mother for her cruelty to others and her superior attitude to all. When you become disgusted enough to want to shake a person, you realize that this must be an exceptional book!! I really forgot they were fictional characters! These quirks and characteristics made the story come alive.

    The plot was well developed and differed from the norm in Amish fiction. No girl meets guy,fall in love, get married, lives happily every after! The constant twists and turns kept me glued to the page as I attempted to guess the next event. Surprises and shocking events existed around every corner. The author dealt with some sensitive subject matter in an understanding and realistic manner. Leaving the Amish is not a topic that many authors attempt to tackle within a romance, but Molly did so with dignity and grace.

    Molly Jebber did a great job of relating the story and making it come alive. The time period was described in excellent detail so that the reader had an excellent understanding of what was acceptable and why society had the attitudes that were exemplified in the many social events.

    Five stars for this wonderful story!! Eagerly awaiting another book by this author!

    I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    This book was different from much of the Amish fiction Ive read, because of the time period in which it was set, and also because the main character, Becca Yost, leaves her Amish lifestyle initially in the story. But she was a character to be admired, because her faith in God, her desire to help people, and her diligence, all Amish values, remained at the forefront of her life. It was also different because she and handsome doctor Matt Carrington declared their love for each other early in the story. Matt is a hard-working man of integrity who demonstrates his love for Becca over and over again.

    Matts mother proves to be the main source of conflict throughout the story, as she incessantly vocalizes her disapproval of Matts choice to court Becca. She is overly concerned with Matts position in high society, and her perception of Beccas inability to fit in to that group.

    There were many other endearing characters in Matt and Beccas lives, and I thought it would be lovely to visit the town and meet them in person.

    I enjoyed the story, but I wished that descriptions of some events had been fleshed out in more detail, and that the dialogue was less stilted. More careful editing would have improved it as well. However, I found this to be a cozy, enjoyable story that fans of Amish fiction will certainly enjoy, and I plan to read more books by this author.

    I received a copy of this book from the author and Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.

    This is a different kind of Amish book than I am use to. It is set in the late 1890s and has a flair of the old west to it. I fell in love with the story and couldn't put it down. Becca Yost has decided to come stay with her sister Ruth and try to overcome the embarrassment of being jilted by her fianc . Becca is a very kind and gentle Amish woman who is trained as a midwife.

    After arriving in town, she becomes injured and meets the very handsome Dr. Matt Carrington. He takes care of her injury and there seems to be a bit of a spark between them. Becca finds herself working at Matt's clinic as his nurse and they begin a courtship. Not everyone is happy with this infatuation. Can a plain Amish woman fit in a world of prestige and wealth? I enjoyed the conflict between Becca and Matt's mother very much. It shows how a person can judge another without knowing them. Do we sometimes do the same thing?

    The story is filled with judgment, hurt, betrayal and God's never ending love. The author has written a story that will have you feeling empathy and compassion for some. Does Matt's mother show mercy towards Becca? Will Matt's parents ever accept Becca? Can a person really change their heart? I highly recommend this book to readers who love a well written story that shows how judging someone can cause hurt and conflict. As I finished the book, I sat for a moment to remind myself , "Judge not, lest you be judged." I also loved the quilt pocket that different characters made that had a note or letter in it. What a treasure it would be to receive such a heartwarming and personal gift from someone. The author has done an exceptional job of writing a story that shows that love does conquer all and with faith restoration is possible.

    I received a copy of this book from the Celebrate Lit Blog Tour for an honest review.

    I loved this book. I read it while my husband was in surgery. Usually I can't read much during his surgeries but I had trouble putting this one down. I loved Becca and Dr. Matt Carrington from the moment they met. I laughed and cried during this story. I am glad that I had little troubles with my mother-in-law. She has always been very nice to me. I liked reading about the Amish during the late 1890's. Will they be able to get passed his mother-in-law and her prejudice. I received this book through Celebration Lit Blog tour for a fair and honest opinion. Come to my blog at http://bigreadersite.wordpress.com for a chance to win a free copy of this book.
