Published by Thorndike Press on 2015
Genres: Fiction, Christian, Romance, Amish & Mennonite
Follow the heart-wrenching story of Adam Beachy, whose mother walked out on him and his family—and away from the Amish faith. Now he balks at the idea of ever marrying and having a family of his own. But when tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his three nieces and finds himself needing a wife. Despite their differences over her practice of reflexology, Leah Mast seems the best option to fill that role. Can they make it work in a modern-day marriage of convenience?
The Gift is the second book in the Prairie State Friends series by Wanda Brunstetter. I was so pleasantly surprised by this book because I’ll be honest—I didn’t enjoy The Decision as much as I’d hoped. I just didn’t connect with Elaine. If you haven’t read my review of The Decision, you can hop on over and see why I struggled so much with that book.
The Gift was delightful and engaging. I really like Leah and even Adam, though he could be a bit of a grump. If you stick with the story, you’ll find out why he is so opinionated.
I still feel as if the people living in this series have terribly bad luck. Poor Jonah is just being put through the wringer. I hope that he finds his happy ending. I really hope that if Elaine is his happy ending that she matures a bit. She is still coming off as so self-centered!
All-in-all, I really enjoyed The Gift and I cannot wait to pick up the last installment, The Restoration.
