I'm back on tour with Celebrate Lit.  Yay!  These are always so much fun for me because I get a chance to read books by authors that are new to me and then I get to share them with you.  This tour stop is a great new book out by Author Molly Jebber. 

This is book is book 3 in the Keepsake Pocket Quilt series.  From the back: In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for and a new, very different future…

Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm, the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to share…

This was a wonderful book.  Even though I haven't read the other two books (I plan on going back and getting that done!) I was able to easily follow right along.  Anna is a lovely character and her compassion towards others and her love of her family shines through in the story.  She wants to marry Noah but all he seems to want to do is change her.  Discontent with his life here he also wants to travel to other communities.  Anna is a homebody and likes things the way they are.

When Daniel comes Anna now finds two suitors vying for her attention.  Anna has to make a choice. Which gentleman will win her heart and hand?

There were also smaller story lines threaded throughout that added a beautiful depth to the story.  One sister's bad choice and the consequences that happened and a foundling child.  This book drew me into the story and was hard to put down.  My only regret is not finding Molly Jebber's books earlier!

So pick up your copy of Two Suitors for Anna today!  And follow the tour.  Don't forget, as always, there is a giveaway!  So enter that as well!  Happy Reading!

What prompted Two Suitors for Anna?
Have you had to choose between two men you love? Or maybe a friend?  I gave Anna this dilemma and added to her turmoil by throwing in a bundle of twists and turns to the story.
Noah proposes to Anna, and he takes her rejection as hesitation and leaves town. Daniel moves to Berlin and offers her friendship which is blossoming into something more, when Noah returns and asks her forgiveness and another chance. I hope you enjoy it!
