Title: A HOME FOR
Author: Vannetta Chapman
Publisher: Harvest House
A Home for Lydia, the second book in a new romantic series from popular author Vannetta Chapman, centers again on the Plain community of Pebble Creek and the kind, caring people there. As they face challenges to their community from the English world, they come together to reach out to their non-Amish neighbors while still preserving their cherished Plain ways.
Aaron Troyer simply wants to farm like his father and grandfather before him. But instead he finds himself overseeing the family's small group of guest cabins nestled along the banks of Pebble Creek. That also means he must work with the cabins' housekeeper, Lydia Fisher.
Together they work to make the vacation property profitable, but can they find out the identity of the culprit before more damage is done? And is
dream of a home of her own more than just a wish and a prayer?
A HOME FOR LYDIA is the second book in Ms. Chapman’s Pebble Creek series. Readers will want to read A Promise for Miriam first as Miriam and her husband (and daughters) are prominent point of view characters in A HOME FOR LYDIA.
Aaron Troyer is angry to be the one to have to come to
Wisconsin to make sure
his uncle’s property is fixed up and sold or managed. He wishes someone else
would’ve been chosen, especially when he arrives to meet hot tempered Lydia and the
run-down cabins. The scenery is beautiful, but does nothing to ease Aaron’s unhappiness
temper. When the two meet, sparks fly, and they have to learn to work together
and to get along as Lydia
is the house-keeper there and Aaron, her boss.
The book is very well-written. I could feel Aaron’s discontent from the very first pages. I felt for him having to be somewhere and do things he’d rather not. I liked him, and hoped he’d find some contentment in his current situation.
took a bit more exposure to like, as she had a bad attitude and temper to match
it and didn’t seem to care. It was great to catch up with Gabe and Miriam from
the first book A Promise for Miriam again.
I’m looking forward to reading A Wedding
for Julia. If you like Amish fiction
then be sure to pick up A HOME FORY LYDIA. An excerpt from A Wedding for Julia is included at the end of the book. 352 pages.
