Review: Finding Her Amish Home by Pamela Desmond Wright

Finding Her Amish Home was a heartwarming story that focused on the importance of community, as well as accepting God’s forgiveness. Maddie Baum was a unique character. Due to circumstances outside of her control growing up, she lived for many years as part of an Amish community, yet was eventually raised in the Englisher world, as well. She carried a lot of guilt over secrets that she was keeping and her lack of understanding regarding communities and shunning.

Abram Mueller was a great character. He was scarred from events in his childhood, both inside and out, yet he had done a lot of growing and learning in the recent past, coming home and dedicating his life to his faith. I really liked the way he handled situations that arose in the story. His background and all that he had lived through made him thoughtful and considerate of others.

I enjoyed the relationship that grew between Maddie and Abram. It felt very natural. I look forward to reading future books set in this community.

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


What she wants more than anything
Could also be the most dangerous…

After her twin sister’s death, Maddie Baum flees to Wisconsin Amish country with her nephew in tow in the hopes of protecting him from his criminal father. Befriending Amish shopkeeper Abram Mueller gives her a glimpse of the happiness she’s been yearning for all along. Can she find a fresh start with Abram—or will old sins tear them apart?

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

Pamela Desmond Wright grew up in a small, dusty Texas town. Like the Amish, Pamela is a fan of the simple life. Her childhood includes memories of the olden days; old-fashioned oil lamps, cooking over an authentic wood-burning stove and making popcorn over a crackling fire at her grandparent’s cabin. She also loves needlepoint and has dozens of projects to work on! Someday, she hopes to move into van life, living on the road as a traveling writer.
