Review of A Promise for Miriam by Vannetta Chapman
A Promise for Miriam,
the first book in a brand-new romantic series from popular author
Vannetta Chapman, introduces the Amish community of Pebble Creek and
some of 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
Amish schoolteacher Miriam King loves her students. At 26, most
women her age are married with children of their own, but she hasn't yet
met anyone who can convince her to give up the Plain school that sits
along the banks of Pebble Creek. Then newcomer Gabriel Miller steps into
her life, bringing his daughter, an air of mystery, and challenges
Miriam has never faced before.
Will Gabe be able to let go of the past that haunts him? He thinks
he just wants to be left alone, but the loving and warm community he and
his daughter have moved to has other plans for him. After a near
tragedy is averted, he hesitantly returns offers of help and friendship,
and he discovers he can make a difference to the people of Pebble
Creek--and maybe find love again.

Well Vannetta has done it again A Promise for Miriam is a super
easy Amish read. This book is different from Vannetta's Shipshewana
Amish Mystery series; this is more a romance. I have to say that her
books are getting better and better. I could not put this book down. That is how I know that a book is good, the house work is put on the
back burner until the very last page has been read. You do not want to
miss Vannetta's next book A Home For Lydia.
Harvest House sent me a copy of this book for my honest review.
