Review: Marrying Jonah by Amy Lillard

Marrying JonahWell, I have a new addition to my top favorite Amish books! Marrying Jonah was a truly wonderful story that was full of uncertainty, hope, heartache, confusion, and the possibility of a love growing out of not so perfect circumstances.

If you haven’t read the other books in the series, you will still be able to enjoy Marrying Jonah. If you have read the other books, especially Lorie’s Heart, then you will understand what Jonah has gone through.

I really felt for these two characters. Sarah and Jonah both had plenty of hurt and confusion that they were carrying around. This story walks gently through their relationship, exploring the delicate nature of their new marriage. I was really impressed with the way the author wove such complicated emotions into the novel. This is definitely a story I will be re-reading many times!

(5 stars)

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

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Marrying JonahLife isn t always as simple as it seems for the Amish community of Wells Landing, Oklahoma. Neither is love. . .
“Everyone in town knows that Sarah Yoder is enamored with Jonah Miller, even though he s been with his girlfriend, Lorie, for years. But all that changes when Lorie runs off with another man. Inconsolable, his faith in love shattered, Jonah resists everyone s attempts to ease his pain until the unexpected happens one night.
Jonah is filled with confusion. Sarah is not the woman he yearns for, yet he asks for her hand in marriage, if only out of honor. Still, he worries, can they live in harmony if their vows are built on a lie? As Sarah seeks spiritual advice, Jonah tries to look toward the future and finally begins to see her for who she really is: A beautiful, strong-willed woman whose heart is pure and belief is true. But will it be too late for him to prove that he wants to be her husband?
