Love Comes to Paradise

Author: Mary Ellis
Publisher: Harvest House
February 2013
ISBN: 978-0-7369-3867-9
Genre: Amish romance

A new home…a new friend…a catastrophe…
Does she have a future to hope for?

Nora King believes she is a woman in love. When Elam Detweiler leaves the ultraconservative Amish district of Harmony, Maine, and moves to Paradise, Missouri, Nora follows soon after. But does she love the man or the independence and freethinking he represents? Although she finds good work in her new town, Nora can't seem to capture Elam's Englisch-leaning heart, no matter how hard she tries.

And then, unexpectedly, Lewis Miller comes from Harmony to offer Nora what every woman needs--a lifetime of unconditional love. As Lewis attempts to claim her heart, Elam's interest piques. Will Nora come to her senses before Elam's thoughtless choices ruin her reputation beyond repair?

LOVE COMES TO PARADISE is the second book in bestselling author Mary Ellis's New Beginnings series. It's about fresh starts...and how faith in God and His perfect plans provide the peace and joy all long for. LOVE COMES TO PARADISE easily stands alone, but readers will want to read Living in Harmony first to learn about the Maine Amish community that Nora fled.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading LOVE COMES TO PARADISE. Ms. Ellis is a stellar Amish author and I totally fell in love with Lewis – though I could see how Nora was fascinated by the more charismatic Elam. I hoped she wouldn’t throw Lewis by the wayside though!

If you love Amish fiction you’ll definitely want to read LOVE COMES TO PARADISE. Loved it.  $13.99. 352 pages.
