S.Chapel ReviewsSouthern OhioAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A Lovely Amish Senior RomanceJuly 27, 2022S.Chapel ReviewsSouthern OhioAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What I enjoyed the most about this book was that it was about Amish Senior Citizens who find happiness after losing their life long mates , with someone new. I loved that it was about people my age and I can relate to their aches and pains and feeling life has passed me by. I loved the beautiful cover and enjoyed the story tucked between the covers. I found it to be meaningful and realistic. One of the characters in the story suffered with advanced Parkinsons Disease and felt he was useless and that life had passed him by. I loved all the characters in this book and felt that the Author penned a very heartwarming story with a beautiful ending.
Laura Kauffman is a 73 year old Amish woman who has been a widow for nine years. She lives in a dawdy haus on her daughter and son-in-laws
property. Laura would never consider marrying again after all these years. She could never love another man like she had loved Eli Kauffman.
Zechariah Stutzman lost his wife to cancer two years ago. Not long after she died he was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease. The disease soon advanced and his family moved him from his dawdy haus to live with his grandson Ben and his family. Out of concern and love for his grandfather Ben placed restrictions on what Zachariah could do around the farm and what he couldnt do. Zachariah soon felt he was useless and of little worth to his family. His Daughter in law went into premature labor with twins and she almost died. Ben asked Laura Kauffman to help take care of the other children and keep tabs on Zachariah. He asked Laura to leave because Zachariah thought he could care for the children himself. Laura soon put him in his place and continued to run the house and make meals as she had been asked to do. Eventually Zachariah excepted her being there and warmed up to her. After the children had been put to bed Laura and Zachariah enjoyed playing checkers in the evenings. Soon he noticed how pretty Laura was and he remembered her from their school days together. Laura enjoyed talking to Ben and she thought he had a nice smile . Soon they were attracted to each other but what could Zachariah offer a pretty woman like Laura. He felt he would be a burden to her and thats the last thing he wanted to do. Laura wanted to take care of Zachariah but she felt he was stubborn and didnt really want her. What would it take to bring this man and this woman together and give them a second chance of happiness together?
I recommend this book to readers of Amish Fiction and to fans of the author. This is the fourth book of Kelly Irvins An Every Amish Season series. I have not read the other three books of this series. I was able to read this book as a stand alone book.
I won a copy of this book in the Authors newsletter giveaway. A review was not requested. Since I enjoyed this book I have voluntarily reviewed it and all thoughts and opinions shared here are my own.

I enjoyed the characters in the book. The characters were so realistic and relatable. Laura was my favorite character. She is a very kind and friendly person.

LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Series ConclusionJuly 5, 2019LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the fourth and final book in the "An Every Amish Season " Series. It is so refreshing to read about aging characters who are dealing with the winter season of their lives. Finding self worth and feeling useful are important as we age and love is no respecter of age. It just looks different depending on the stage of your life. Laura is a wonderful character with spunk that keeps everyone on their toes. The author did a wonderful job of incorporating Parkinson's disease into one of the main characters and also deals with how a stroke can strike unexpectedly. We can all learn something from this book as well as be entertained by well rounded characters. It is nice to revisit previous characters and what is happening in their live. This is a book that will draw you in and gets better with each chapter. By the time it was finished I was saying no....don't end now, can't we have just one more book.
I received a complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson & Zondervan Fiction Guild. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

This book was enjoyable and the characters were quite relatable. I look forward to more stories from this author.
