Rachel's Dream By Lisa Jones Baker

Patience, faith—and the hopes and dreams within their hand-carved hope chests—help to bring three young Amish women, one by one, the blessed futures their hearts desire…
Rachel Kauffman and Jarred Zimmerman seem to have nothing in common. She’s the outgoing youngest of a large, close-knit Amish clan, and longs to raise a brood of her own near those she loves. Estranged from his family by tragedy, Jarred is a young veterinarian who trusts the animals he heals far more than he trusts people. However, when Rachel’s beloved horse falls ill, Jarred’s struggles to save him show Rachel he’s a man who cares deeply. And the respect he feels for her gentle warmhearted ways soon becomes an irresistible bond…

When Rachel tries to help Jarred reunite with his parents, it is an unexpected blessing—with one complication. If he takes this chance to put his past to rest, it could separate him and Rachel for good. Now, with prayer, love—and her hope chest’s small miracles—Jarred and Rachel must find the courage to reconcile their wishes into a joyous life together.

My Review...
Book three in the Hope Chest of Dreams. What all of us Baker fans have been waiting on. Is finally here.
Rachel and Jarred's story is one that you won't soon forget. And who doesn't love a story with miracles. 
Baker has away with bringing the Plain and the englishers together in such away that you don't feel like you are reading a book.
I gave this book 4 stars. I recommend the whole series.
