Author: Patrice Lewis
Love Inspired takes you on an uplifting journey of faith, forgiveness and hope. Fall in love with stories where faith helps guide you through life’s challenges, and discover the promise of a new beginning.
This is a heartwarming story with a television journalist, Leah Porte, being placed with an Amish family whilst in witness protection after accidentally witnessing two gangland murders. She is used to all the gadgets and trappings of her high profile life so learning how to do things without using electricity and modern conveniences is something of a culture shock for her. However, it is a challenge she willingly faces, endeavouring to help the family who were kind enough to take her in and help protect her. Little did she realise just how much this would change her as she discovers what family life is like in this close knit community.
This story is a lovely read and it was great to learn more about Amish communities alongside Leah. The incorporated explanations are seamlessly integrated into the story but are also so informative and help bring the situations and events to life in the imagination of the reader. The dilemmas faced by Leah and Isaac are showcased and explored through the lovely story. The family life is portrayed, their beliefs showcased but not in an indoctrinating manner, just as part of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this beautiful, inspirational story and recommend it to anyone who enjoys or wishes to try reading an Amish romance.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.
For fans of the movie For Richer or Poorer (Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley), a television journalist finders herself in trouble and finds sanctuary among the Amish in witness protection.
Can a modern city girl ever become one of the Plain People?
She needed a safe place to hide. Instead, she found a place to call home.
Television journalist Leah Porte never imagined her career would end with her witnessing a murder. Now she’s temporarily living among the Amish in witness protection. Instead of feeling alone and adrift, Leah is warmly welcomed by the close-knit community—and Amish bachelor Isaac Sommer. But caught between two very different worlds, choosing love would mean leaving her modern life behind forever.
