An Angel by Her Side By Ruth Reid

Katie has lived through tragedy and heartache. But with the angel Elias by her side, the best years of her life are just ahead.
A Heaven on Earth Novel, #3
When Katie Bender’s fiancĂ© died in a tragic accident, so did her hope of finding love. Though heartbroken, Katie is also practical. In the years since the accident she has discovered her gift for teaching. But when a tornado destroys her small Amish settlement, including the schoolhouse, Katie doesn’t know how she will provide for herself.
Seth Stutzman arrived in Hope Falls days before the storm. And when he helps usher Katie and the children to safety, sparks fly. But Seth is only in town to help his brother, Amos, get back on his feet following the death of his wife. He can’t afford to have feelings for Katie.
Rebuilding the community is a huge task, and soon, Katie and Seth are working side by side. As they privately wrestle with their feelings for each other, another silent—and ultimate—battle for their hearts rages unseen.
Sworn to protect what God has ordained, the mighty angel Elias appears to them as a mysterious visitor. And with his guidance, Katie and Seth find the courage to take the first small steps toward the life, and love, they were destined for.

Ruth Reid is a full-time pharmacist who lives in Florida with her husband and three children. When attending Ferris State University School of Pharmacy in Big Rapids, Michigan, she lived on the outskirts of an Amish community and had several occasions to visit the Amish farms. Her interest grew into love as she saw the beauty in living a simple life.

Oh My what can I say about this book that will even come close to letting you know that I LOVED it. I highly recommend this book.
Ruth has wrote a book about an angel that walks here on earth and if ever we needed a book with this positive story line it is now.
I would give anything to see my angel that is by my side everyday.
I fell in love with Elias the angel, and I could not wait to turn the page to see what was going to happen next.
Katie and Seth were the best, I loved them both. This was the best Amish book I have read in a very long time. I loved the whole series. This was a fantastic finish to a wonderful series.
I am telling all of you Amish fans out there this is a MUST READ.  A 5 star book for sure!

I was given a copy of this book by the author Ruth Reid.
