Review: A New Love for Charlotte by Amy Lillard

Readers who have been following the Wells Landing series will know that the last two books before this one followed the lives of Charlotte’s daughter, Jenna, and Charlotte’s mother-in-law, Nadine. Well, it is Charlotte’s turn to find her happily-ever-after in this novel. However, it was not an easy road at all.

When the book opened, Charlotte was a bit overwhelmed with life. She struggled with sadness about the thought of living alone and never having a chance to have another baby of her own. All of this landed Charlotte in a relationship with a man named Glenn. A man who was clearly not a good match for Charlotte. Glenn and Charlotte simply had nothing in common and the whole relationship felt forced. What didn’t feel forced was Charlotte’s friendship with her neighbor, Paul. I really enjoyed seeing the two of them together.

Charlotte’s attachment to the abandoned baby was very sweet. Her love for the baby was evident in how she cared for her and in how she tried to make decisions that were for the good of the child. I really enjoyed seeing Paul and Charlotte together with the baby. They were both so caring toward her. This book was a sweet addition to the series.

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


Renewed faith and happiness await three generations of women in this heartwarming series from Amy Lillard, set in the Oklahoma Amish community of Wells Landing . . .

With her daughter newly married, widow Charlotte Burkhart should have been content to find a companion for her later years in Amish widower Glenn Esh. Yet, Charlotte longs for more than life has offered her thus far. When she discovers a baby on her doorstep, the child seems like the miracle Charlotte’s been praying for. Unfortunately, Glenn doesn’t feel the same way. What’s a single woman aching to experience motherhood once more to do?

From the moment Paul Brenneman sees Charlotte Burkhart with a new baby, he senses his lovely neighbor and the sweet child are meant to be. Which is why he offers to marry Charlotte and make her adoption dreams come true. No stranger to heartache himself, the stalwart widower knows second chances don’t happen every day—especially not with a woman like Charlotte, the first woman in a long time who has him taking a leap of faith that happily-ever-after is still possible . . .
