Publisher's Description

"Written with tenderness and simplicity." —Joan Wester Anderson, New York Times bestselling author

First in a new series

Three young Amish women, gifted with hand-carved hope chests to hold their treasures and their dreams for the future, find the inspiration they need to help them reconcile love and faith in the most unexpected ways…

The last thing Rebecca Sommer dreamed her plan to wed would bring is a heart-wrenching choice. She thought she and her betrothed, William, would spend the rest of their lives in Illinois’ heartland, raising a family in their close-knit Amish hometown. But when he must travel far out of state to save his ailing father's business, Rebecca braves her relatives' disapproval—and her own fears—to go work by his side. And though she finds herself ever more in love with the dedicated, resourceful man he proves to be, William’s growing interest in English ways may be the one challenge even her steadfast faith can't meet…

William knows he couldn't ask for a more loyal wife-to-be. And the bravery that helps Rebecca tackle every obstacle makes her even more admirable. He simply won't ask her to sacrifice her deepest beliefs, no matter how right they are for each other. But the patience and care that crafted Rebecca's hope chest is somehow showing them there's more than one way prayers can be answered—and hearts brought together forever...

"The prayers and faith are respectfully illustrated, and Baker emphasizes the conviction required to hold to Amish traditions while surrounded by 21st century conveniences, providing an unusual and welcome level of insight into the characters’ inner lives." –Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

    First book in the Hope Chest of Dreams series, Author Lisa Jones Baker does a great job of showing that adults can stay true to their beliefs, even when helping people who believe differently than they do. We see the human side of William and Rebecca as they struggle with decisions that will affect the rest of their lives.

    A clean romance with a bit of a mystery thrown into the story, the outcome was not at all what I expected. You'll keep turning the pages to find out who done it!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.

    Rebeccas Bouquet (Hope Chest Dreams -Book 1 )

    By: Lisa Jones Baker

    Rebeccas Bouquet is book one in Hope Chest Dreams series by Lisa jones Baker. This was my first to read of Ms Baker, and hopefully it will not be my last. I Plan on reading the others in this series. I really did enjoy Rebeccas Bouquet. The author captured me right at the start and I was hooked. This was one of those page turners and I could not read fast enough to see what was going to happen next, I did not want to put it down. The story and the characters both were well written and well developed. I loved Rebecca and though that she was very wise for her years. Rebecca knows that she and Williams are meant to be together. Their faith is truly tested in this story. Williams father had a heart attack and he wants to go and help him and his wife out. Rebecca goes with him. They leave their Amish homes to go into the English home. William loved the fancy car and TV. There is some other mystery in this story that will keep you guessing . Ms Baker weaves a story filled with hurt, love, forgiveness, and second chances. I love that Rebeccas faith was strong . Sometimes what we want is not what God has planned for us. I love the spiritual threads that are throughout the story.

    I was given a complimentary copy off this book , but was not told that I had to give a positive review.

    Thanks to my library, I discovered this wonderful debut novel -- and a new-to-me inspirational imprint -- Zebra Inspirational Romance -- from Kensington Books. Double win heading for a triple because the next book in the series comes out in the spring. And I love the premise of this series -- the handcrafted hope chests that will hold special treasures unique to each heroine.

    Rebecca is anchored in her faith as an Amish woman which gives her wisdom beyond her years. If I had to describe Rebecca in one word it would be 'steadfast'. She's immovable in her faith and in her love for William...but can she have both? That's what this story explores as Rebecca is thrust out of her comfort zone, far from home in an English world.

    Love the continuous faith threads woven throughout this novel. So many gems to cherish. Like this one that comes from Old Sam: "Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to move your feet." (p 12)

    Sweet, tender and rife with strife -- a great blend for an Amish romance.

    Rebeccas Bouquet by Lisa Jones Baker is the first book in Hope Chest of Dreams. Rebecca Sommer is eighteen years old and engaged. Her fianc, William Conrad needs to leave town. His father has suffered a heart attack and needs William to run the cabinet business while he is out. Rebecca does not wish to be away from her fianc for several months and decides to go with him (despite objections). Rebeccas family object because Williams fathers, Daniel is Englisch. Daniel left the faith when he married his second wife, Beth. Rebecca understands their concerns, but she refuses to leave her fianc for that length of time. The Bishop gives Rebecca an assignment to complete while she is away (three tasks). William and Rebecca are in for some new experiences. Daniel has a modern household. They have contemporary appliances, air conditioning, a car, and, of course, a television. William takes to these modern inventions quickly (especially likes ESPN). Their short visit gets extended when Daniel has a setback. Then Rebeccas starts receiving threatening notes. Someone is not happy that Rebecca is visiting and wants her to leave. But Rebecca refuses to be frightened away. She is determined to help Daniel and Beth (Williams stepmother). Then Daniel offers William a partnership in the cabinet business. William is tempted by this better way of life, but Rebecca would never give up her Old Order Amish roots. Will William and Rebecca return to their community or will they be lured away by the Englisch lifestyle?

    Rebeccas Bouquet was lacking. Rebecca came across as a goody two shoes! She was too perfect and, after a while, really got on my nerves. The same issues are rehashed over and over throughout the book. It made the story tiring and boring. It is basically about the choice that William and Rebecca have to make (well, really just Williams because Rebecca will not change). There was too much of Rebecca and William thinking, contemplating, and deciding instead of the story moving forward (having some substance). The ending is abrupt and predictable. I was very disappointed. The book needed more substance to bring it alive. I give Rebeccas Bouquet 3 out of 5 stars. This will not stop me from trying a Lisa Jones Baker book in the future. This was just a first book. I am hoping there will be significant improvement in the next book in Hope Chest of Dreams series.
