Marrying Jonah (A Wells Landing Romance) by Amy Lillard

Spring is in the air and I'm back in one of my favorite fictional communities, Wells Landing.  By now I feel like I know everyone pretty well and it's a second home.

From the back:  Life isn’t always as simple as it seems for the Amish community of Wells Landing, Oklahoma. Neither is love. . .

Everyone in town knows that Sarah Yoder is enamored with Jonah Miller, even though he’s been with his girlfriend, Lorie, for years. But all that changes when Lorie runs off with another man. Inconsolable, his faith in love shattered, Jonah resists everyone’s attempts to ease his pain—until the unexpected happens one night.

Jonah is filled with confusion. Sarah is not the woman he yearns for, yet he asks for her hand in marriage, if only out of honor. Still, he worries, can they live in harmony if their vows are built on a lie? As Sarah seeks spiritual advice, Jonah tries to look toward the future—and finally begins to see her for who she really is: A beautiful, strong-willed woman whose heart is pure and belief is true. But will it be too late for him to prove that he wants to be her husband?

Every book that comes out in this series is better than the last.  I have truly enjoyed my time in Wells Landing and every character shines.  This story was wonderful from start to finish.  Love isn't easy, even if you are Amish.  

Jonah can't move on from his heartache of loosing Lori.  Sarah has loved Jonah forever and her stubbornness won't let her entertain thoughts of another.  One night things change for both of them.  

This book made me tear up more than once.  These two have so much going against them you wonder if they will be able to figure out the beautiful things that God can bring together out of brokeness.   These two have so much to learn.  Can they learn it in time or will they loose it all? 

I truly enjoyed this series and even though the book can stand alone if you haven't read the others you miss some of the background and storylines.  So pick up your copy of Marrying Jonah and visit the community of Wells Landing where there is a story on every corner and a community of faith and fun.  Happy Reading!
