    THE AMISH. WIDOWER by Virginia Smith. Continuation of the series by Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner. Having read the series by Clark, was delighted to see this as the 4th in the Men of Lancaster series

    This story had a depth, unlike other Amish stories I have read. Showing the emotions of Seth, the Widower, who has lost 2 wives, both had been expecting. Wasn't his fault, but feels guilt anyways. Amish men must exercise strict discipline, over their emotions.To learn the skill of working with clay, and of the release of emotions. By crafting them with the designs of quilts, in his mind. Being delegated by the bishop for the group to bring a girl home that was on rumspringa. Learning, a new craft, new joy, and that love is stronger than fear. Would he be open to a 3 rd wife. A power story that deals with family, finding a place for one's own life, and doing what God wants you to do. Given ARC by Net Galley for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

    This review was written for The Amish Widower - eBook.
    The Amish Widower is a touching book - one that changes you if you let it. It is a book of love, intense grief, forgiveness, reconciliation, trust, guilt and most importantly repairing relationship with GOD. Seth lost everything one day as he was driving his expectant wife (in a horse and buggy) - this was his second wife he lost. He is determined not to have another one so as not to get hurt and lose another one that way or any way for that matter. After a year the community thinks its time for him to move on and find a third time, of course he did not. He got involved with a potter who got his creative side going - his granddaughter was around running the shop - will things grow between them? will he trust GOD? she is not Amish - she chose not to be - will she choose to be for him? This story will pull at your heartstrings - and teach you allot about the Amish if you did not know. I received a copy of this from Harvest House. All the opinions are my own.

    When this book opens we learn that Seth had lost his first wife and now is happily married and expecting a baby, but this world is not about to last, and a tragic accident happens and he looses his second wife.

    We travel in Seths shoes as he goes about his everyday life, and trying to avoid what his family and the community wants, him to remarry, he just cant do it as he blames himself in a way for the demise of his loved ones. How is he ever going to be able to settle down and have a family, and he decides he isnt.

    A chance meeting with a potter and a new course in his life is set, and a young man shows up in his familys yard one day looking for a job. Robbie soon becomes Seths driver, now from this point on I realized or speculated on who he was, and you will have to read to find out if Im right.

    We also have another struggling soul, the potters granddaughter Leah, a former Amish woman, and now struggling, and these two have a lot in common, they need to forgive. Easy to say, but hard to do, and will they ever be able to be at peace without it?

    I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review.
