Publisher's Description

Follow the heart-wrenching story of Adam Beachy, whose mother walked out on him and his family—and away from the Amish faith. Now he balks at the idea of ever marrying and having a family of his own. But when tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his three nieces and finds himself needing a wife. Despite their differences over her practice of reflexology, Leah Mast seems the best option to fill that role. Can they make it work in a modern-day marriage of convenience?

    WANDA BRUNSTETTER'S THE GIFT HER SECOND BOOK IN THE PRAIRIE STATE FRIENDS SERIES

    The Gift is Wanda Brunstetter's second book in her Prairie State Friends series. the first book in this series is The Decision.

    Leah Mast has the healing touch and a "gift" for reflexology. Not everyone believes that you can cure an illness through a foot massage.

    Adam Beachy is one of those who thinks reflexology is hocus-pocus, even though his own mother, who left Adam and his sister Mary, when they were young children, practiced reflexology.

    When tragedy strikes Adam's family and he is left to care for his three nieces, Adam realizes that he needs a mother for the girls and Leah is is best choice.

    Can a marriage of convenience with Lean turn into something else between the two. Will Adam's opinion regarding reflexology change, especially when Leah does not want to give up performing reflexology on her customers, after they marry. When Adam's mother shows up in Arthur with her son, will Adam be able to forgive her for walking out on him and his sister, when they were children/

    I highly recommend reading The Gift to find out if Adam has a change of heart about his past and his feelings towards Leah's "gift".

    The Gift also brings us up to date on the lives of several of the characters from The Decision, the first book in this series.

    In the back of the book, there are two recipes for Leah's Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball, and Leah's Humming Bird Cake, which are mentioned in the book.

    This story line was very interesting and somewhat different from other books I've read about the Amish. It held my interest from the start till the finish. In fact, I didn't want it to end. I have enjoyed all books I've read by Wanda B.

    Fantastic! This is the second book in the Prairie State Friends series. This seemed to stand alone but I recommend reading the first in the series because Wanda E. Brunstetter books are always wonderful. I have never read one of hers that I didn't like. This one has Leah Mast who has a gift of healing using reflexology and Adam Beachy who wants nothing to do with reflexology because of something that happened in his childhood. They meet because Adam has a tragedy and his sister and husband die and he is left to raise their children. Leah helps him to care for them. This book has a great bit of romance and just a hint of what will happen next. I really recommend this series. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion.

    This review was written for The Gift, Prairie State Friends Series #2.
    Leah Mast has an ability to help her neighbors and heal their ailments by practicing reflexology and she is thankful that God has given her this talent. Adam Beachy has total disdain for anyone who believes in this practice and he is very vocal about his aversion. Readers meet both of these characters in the first few pages of The Gift, the second book of the Prairie State Friends series, and we are immediately given a glimpse of how complicated a relationship between the two of them would be. Soon, Adam is faced with the prospect of raising his three orphaned nieces and who does he seek for help? Yes, it is Leah but it is only because he is desperate! A proposal of marriage follows but no love is involved; this will be a marriage for his convenience only.

    As I read this, I found myself wondering if Leah is making a mistake because Adam is very judgemental and very unforgiving but Brunstetter has a talent for developing characters that are flawed people but ultimately, redeemable human beings.

    This book also gives us an update on characters we met in The Decision, the first book in the Prairie State Friends series. It is nice to revisit them but their new situations and added conflicts leave us with questions that I hope will be answered in book three.

    Wanda Brunstetter is famous for her Amish themed books and her fans will not be disappointed.

    I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion

    This review was written for The Gift, Prairie State Friends Series #2.
    Wanda Brunstetter continues her Prairie State Friends series with The Gift. She once again takes her readers to Arthur, Illinois, to re-visit friends first introduced in The Decision.

    The story picks up from the first book, with several characters returning in continuing relationships. The story has an engaging mix of hope, joy, promise and hurt, despair, and struggle. There are twists and turns that kept me well involved in the flow of the story. I also learned some interesting things about widely varying topics like reflexology and hummingbirds.

    Fans of good Amish fiction should enjoy this read by one of the premier authors in the genre. There are enough loose ends left in the story to make me anxious to see how they work out in the final installment of the trilogy -- The Revelation, scheduled for release next February.

    Thanks to Wanda and her publisher for providing a copy of The Gift in exchange for my honest review.
