All of Pleasant Valley seems to think the newcomer from Lancaster County is the perfect match for teacher Leah. After all, so few new families come to their separate Amish community, and fewer still unmarried men. Daniel Glick is a widower with three young children to look after - clearly he's in need of a wife.

Daniel's past haunts him. Though he cannot miss the beauty in Leah's bright eyes and patient ways, he also sees a reminder of his pain-filled marriage. Leah, too, has a burden to bear. Years ago, she was engaged to Johnny Kile, and she was heartbroken when he decided to leave the Amish community. Since then she has immersed herself in teaching, forgetting any hopes of having her own family. When Johnny returns, seeking reconciliation, Leah must decide between two pathways, either of which will completely change her life. Download and start listening now!

    " While the family went to the water park I stayed in the pool and read this one yesterday. Its good but predictable amish romance. "

    " I loved Leah's Choice by Marta Perry. Marta Perry is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. This is a great story, and I plan to read Rachel's Garden next (Book #2 in this series). "

    " A lovely tale about the Amish people, their way of life, and the inner conflict experienced by those who, on the one hand, love the communal nature of The Plain People lifestyle, who treasure the comraderie and togetherness, but who are drawn to the Outside World--the world of The English--for various reasons. This novel also relates the personal conflicts in the main character's experience over a lost love returned, a new man in the community who seems to want a relationship but is emotionally "shut down" because of past hurts, and her own journey of discovery regarding her own feelings and future. This is especially dear to my heart as my father's heritage is being raised in a similar environment in a Mennonite community. The story is well-told by someone who genuinely appreciates the positives of the Amish way of life, and who also understands the push-pull between the two "worlds." There is no overt sexuality in this book--it just isn't a part of that culture. But the match-making mommas are really humorous and the underlying tension in potential love relationships carries the story well. This is a wonderful read! "
