    This is part of a series but you can read this as a stand alone. Laura loses her mother and a few months she loses her best friend. Then an accident happens and she volunteers to help her best friend's husband by being a nanny for Savilla's baby. She can't understand how her boyfriend can be jealous of her helping his friend with the baby. Especially since she grew up with Savilla and losing her was like losing a sister.

    Any had tears in my eyes in the first chapter. This book will touch your heart, your emotions and question how to go on with our lives in the loss of a loved one. How to overcome guilt even when God doesn't hold you accountable. Whether this book was an Amish book or not it would still touch your heart and emotions. I've read a lot of Amy's books and she has never disappointed me. I bought this book through a local bookstore. I have all of Amy's books on pre-order. Neither the author nor publisher asked me to review this book and all opinions are my own.

    A touching story of support and finding yourself and possibly a new relationship along the way. Such a relatable story with great values and message behind the story.

    Room on the Porch Swing is book two in the Amish Homestead series by Amy Clipston. Room on the Porch Swing is such a heartwarming book. Amy has written another book that will surly capture the heart of her reader. This is by far one of my favorite books that Amy has written. Characters that you will fall in love with and not let go of you. I love the roles that Laura and Allen played in this story. Truly a most wonderful read. This book would also make a great gift.

    What a sweet and special addition to the Amish Homestead series. Room on the Porch Swing is book two in the series, but can easily be read as a stand alone novel.

    I absolutely loved these two main characters. Allen had such a love for his daughter, Mollie, and his late wife, Savilla. And he was just a great guy, capable of enormous caring. Laura was a precious soul, whose love for her late best friend carried over into compassion and true friendship for Allen and Mollie. I loved watching these two friends fall for each other. It was natural and very well-written.

    I have enjoyed both books in this series so much, and anxiously await book three.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    Room on The Porch Swing is book two in An Amish Homestead Novel series by Amy Clipston. This book takes off where book one ends, but the author give background information during the story so that it is a good stand alone story as well. Laura lost her mother to a freak accident less than a year ago. Now she loses her best friend, Savilla, very unexpectedly. Savilla leaves behind a husband, Allen, and young daughter, Mollie. Her mother steps in to care for Mollie so Allen can continue to run his successful buggy business. When Savilla's mother falls and breaks her hip and bones, she has surgery and is not able to care for Mollie. Laura offers to care for her. While caring for Mollie, Laura and Allen's friendship grows and builds into much more.

    Meanwhile, Laura and Rudy have been seeing each other for several years. Their relationship has not moved forward, yet Rudy does not like Laura helping Allen. He has his mother go to the bishop to try to stop Laura from helping Allen.

    Like the first book in the series, this book grabbed my attention and kept it to the very end. The story is very predictable, but it is enjoyable to read a story that brings back characters from the previous story and follow through with their lives as well. The things I like about this story is the generosity Laura and her family have towards others. As well as their faith and obedience. I feel anyone who enjoys reading Amish stories will enjoy this story.

    I received a copy of this book from Zondervan through BookLook Bloggers. This is my honest review.
