His Love Endures Forever is book three in the Land of Canaan series by Beth Wiseman. I have read all all of the previous installments but this is the first review I’ve had the honor of putting up for this fantastic series. Not to worry, I’ll reread the rest of the series at some point so that I can put up a review for all of my lovely readers.
In this book we are once again immersed into the quaint and lovely community that Beth has woven into her series. This particular story tells the story of Danielle Kent. In previous books, we briefly met Danielle as a troubled teen–abused by her mother and taken in by a kooky and fun loving character named Martha. Martha isn’t an Amish lady but she is friends with the surrounding Amish in her community.
It is through Martha that Danielle is introduced to the Amish and she meets a young man by the name of Levi. But she also meets Matthew Lapp from a neighboring Amish community and though she is best friends with Levi, she begins a romantic relationship with Matthew.
Now 18, Danielle’s world changes in an instant with a little pink plus sign. Danielle is pregnant. She hopes that Matthew will do the right thing and settle down, marry her and help raise the baby. However, Matthew is determined to leave the Amish community and he wants absolutely nothing to do with Danielle or their child.
When Danielle turns to Levi for comfort and advice he throws out the crazy idea of marriage. Much to the horror of his mother, Danielle accepts! However, there is one thing that stands in their way. Danielle is an unbeliever. Having suffered abuse at the hands of those that were supposed to love her the most–Danielle is put off by the thought of God. Where was God when her mother hit her? Where was God when she became pregnant and the father didn’t want the child?
“Talk to God like a friend. He will be there for you.”
I don’t want to spoil the book for those of you that haven’t yet read so I’m going to stop here and say…READ THIS BOOK! You will not be disappointed at all. Beth Wiseman really outdid herself with this one!
