RioRanchoReader5 Stars Out Of 5When we have faith anything is possibleNovember 9, 2020RioRanchoReaderQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was asked by NetGalley to review this book and here are my thoughts. How many of us have deep deep hurts that we refuse to share with anyone and it makes us bitter. Then how many of us also just look at the outer covering of someone and decide what that person is like on appearances only. Patricia Johns has done a wonderful job of having us look within ourselves while dealing with Jeb's problems as he deals with his new wife Leah and still has all the old memories of his late wife.
Everyone thought his late wife was so wonderful but she was not at all. Jeb though never let anyone else know taking on all the responsibility himself. Because of that he pulls away from the Amish Community as they in a way shun him.
Leah lives in the rented house next door with her brother Simon and is only there during the summer when she has time off from being a school teacher in another community. Her brother Simon has been raised by Leah since her parents died and he has a problem that she just doesn't know how to deal with. Jeb offers a solution but Leah is not sure she can fulfill her promises and worried about her brother.
She finally agrees and they work together to make a life they both would like but with all the hurts, lies and memories is this marriage doomed from the start and what about the farm, because they helped Simon they may loose that. Will they be able to come to terms with their past and move on into the future they both dream of. Such a great book and a total recommend to read it.
Ebos Aifuobhokhan5 Stars Out Of 5unlike any other amish bookOctober 30, 2020Ebos AifuobhokhanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My heart broke for Leah. We became kin in heart and struggles. Her pains jumped of the pages of the book.
Jeb's sorrows were very touching and sometimes during the book I felt like I could actually touch them.
The both of them had gone through too much pain and loss and even though the circumstances which they met was not conventional, I loved that they found each other. They both knew what it means to be unloved and rejected so they were the best people to love each other well and right.
This story tugged at all my heart strings. It captivated me with its beautiful message of love, redemption and second chance.
It was unlike any Amish book I have read.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5LoveAugust 3, 2020MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleI have read and enjoyed other books by this author and this book is no exception. The plot is awesome, love how this story unfolds, and it was so real.
Loving and being rejected by someone you love, a catalyst between these two, Leah and Jeb. Then there is Simon, I wanted to shake him, but he does have an addiction, and it may seem simple to me to stay away, for him it wasn't.
An odd marriage, yes, but can these to forge a loving relationship, two broken souls, that have somehow found each other.
When the final pages were turned, I wanted more, I wanted to stay with these two, and I can picture and see what could happen, but you need to turn the covers of this book yourself. Enjoy!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zebra and was not required to give a positive review.
pam5 Stars Out Of 5Jeb's WifeJuly 14, 2020pamQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jeb's Wife is an outstanding book written by Patricia John's. This book is very well written, the characters are very well described and likeable, and the storyline moves at a great pace keeping the readers interest. This story is unique in so many aspects. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. There are so many emotions displayed throughout this story and the author does an excellent job making the reader feel them.
Leah is a young Amish woman who was thrown over by her fiance because of her inability to have children. She has accepted she will probably never marry. When she returns home for the summer a severe situation is presented and the only way out means a marriage of convenience. Jeb is a widower who has become a hermit in his community. Because of his history with his late wife and his severe scarring to his body, most everyone has written him off. When Jeb offers marriage it is the solution to both Leah and Jeb's difficulties. They agree to certain terms to their marriage and that's where everything changes. The secrets that come to light could be this couples downfall and their emotions are at stake. How the community handles this situation is unbelievable.
I was offered a complimentary ebook copy of this book thru Netgalley and the author. I was requested to post an honest review. I have rated this story with five stars for meeting my expectations of a wonderful story that I can highly recommend to others. All opinions are strictly my own.
Congratulations to Patricia Johns on writing such an emotional story filled with love, forgiveness, faith, trust, and of course secrets. I didn't want this story to end.
