A Miracle of Hope Ruth Reid

Book Info and Review
Author: Ruth Reid
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
December 2013
ISBN: 978-1401688295
Genre: Amish

She’s heard about forgiveness all her life, but how far does God’s mercy truly reach?

Lindie Wyse thinks an arranged marriage is the only way to preserve a future for herself and her unborn child. Josiah Plank is certain he’ll never love again, but he needs someone to care for his deaf eight-year-old daughter, Hannah.

The two take on their arrangement tentatively at first but soon realize they are each in for more than they imagined. After a short time, Lindie experiences a breakthrough with Hannah when she recognizes the child’s special gifts, but a risky pregnancy and serious health issues threaten to demolish the foundation Josiah and Lindie are building—and the love that is growing between them.

Will their marriage survive their struggles, or will their hearts become as cold as the northern winter?

A MIRACLE OF HOPE is the first book in Ms. Reid’s newest series An Amish Wonder. Set in the upper peninsula of Michigan, an area of Michigan I had no idea any Amish lived.

I enjoyed getting to know Josiah—though I did worry about him and his health, and was glad he had a doctor on top of things. I also loved the way he cared for Lindie even though he’d “never give her his heart.”  I was glad Lindie struggled through Hannah’s issues to win her heart, too.

Ms. Reid includes the supernatural in her writing. This book has a lesser amount than Ms. Reid’s first series, but it is still evident with Hannah’s gifts. If you like Amish fiction, then you will want to read A MIRACLE OF HOPE. My daughter loves this book—and all of Ms. Reid’s fiction and read it twice in less than a week. $15.99. 352 pages. 4.5 stars.
