A Simple Vow By Charlotte Hubbard

Housed in a rustic red barn, the Simple Gifts crafts shop celebrates the talents of the Amish of Willow Ridge--and the faith that inspires them. For the acceptance of simplicity opens the path to love.

As far as Edith Riehl is concerned, the baby twins thrust suddenly into her arms are a heaven-sent gift. Unable to conceive, she longs to be a mother with a home of her own. She's going to abide by her promise to handsome Asa Detweiler to take care of them while he looks for their real father. And even if her domineering dat Cornelius refuses to countenance Asa's suit, she can only pray the bachelor's honesty and persistence will uncover the truth--even as he's kindled an impossible hope for a love of her own . . .

Asa can't understand why anyone would think he would be so dishonorable as to father babies and then abandon them. He's determined to clear his name--but Edith's caring ways also inspire him to help heal her wounded spirit and earn her trust. In the face of heartbreaking deception, he and Edith must find the strength to understand, forgive . . . and claim their own hearts' joy.

Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle in her new Promise Lodge series. Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people--to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle, and the foundation of all her Amish romance series. She's a deacon, a dedicated church musician and choir member, and when she's not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.
A Simple Vow was a pleasant read. I loved visiting Willow Ridge once again. Hubbard wrote another great book with characters you can fall in love with. The characters of Willow Ridge seem so real that they all will make you feel right at home there as you read. The story moves at a different pace than other books by Hubbard. The story seems to take it nice and slow with the romance between the two lead characters. The book also has plenty of twists and turns that will keep things interesting. There are other story lines in the book that are not answered and I will have to wait for the next book to find out what happens.
I gave this book 4 stars. I recommend this read.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
