Patchwork Dreams By Laura Hilton

Ever since returning from her rumspringa pregnant and unwed, Becky Troyer has been a pariah in her Amish community in Missouri. Even after the young mother confesses her sin and rejoins the church, her peers continue to shun her, and she despairs the unlikelihood of marrying for love. It seems that her only hope is to eventually marry a widower with a family of his own.

Becky's world changes when Jacob Miller arrives at her family's farm with the understanding that he will help with chores during the summer and then return to Pennsylvania. What Jacob does not know is that his father, who disapproves of Jacob's sweetheart, Susie, sent him away as part of a plan to introduce new blood into the Amish community of Seymour. In addition to his work around the farm, Jacob undertakes the task of cheering up the lovely yet listless Becky, inviting her to various youth gatherings and offering her the only unconditional friendship she's known.

As their relationship grows, the two find themselves inexplicably drawn to each other. Will Becky and Jacob overcome their insecurities and self–doubts so that their love can grow, or will Jacob keep his pledge to Susie and turn his back on Becky, as so many others have done?

Wow. Laura Hilton is a  new voice in the Amish literature world to be reckoned with. In book one of the Amish of Seymour I was swept off my feet. I really enjoyed the story and when it ended I could not wait to open book two.
I think this is a must read for Amish book lovers, I highly recommend this book.
5 stars for sure!
 
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher.

  2. Great review Mary!! Laura is not only a great author but also a very caring person. I have only read one book, Healing Love. This book has me hooked on her as an author. I love her style of writing. It draws you in to the story so much so that when the book ends you want to read more. I would love to win this book.
