“Marrying Jonah” by Amy Lillard

Amy Lillard has written six books in the series, The Wells Landing Series.  “Marrying Jonah” is the sixth book.  These stories written about the Wells Landing community and its Amish residents portray life within the confines of the Amish religion.  Sarah Yoder has been smitten with Jonah Miller for years, even as a young girl.  But Jonah only has eyes for Lorie, who is torn between the English and Amish worlds and finally makes her decision to leave the community.  Jonah still loves Lori and  is not ready to take on a new love.

Sarah happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time when Jonah takes her to talk by the pond that they used to frequent as children.  Her loving heart and his grieving heart come together and in comforting each other, they go over the line of good sense.  After a few weeks, Sarah finds that she is pregnant and tells Jonah who reluctantly makes things right by marrying her.  They both go through the shunning and the public confession that will let them stay in the church’s good graces.  However, that does not mean that their marriage will be easy and happy.

Join Amy Lillard as she shows how doing the right thing isn’t always easy or rewarding.  I enjoyed the book and the other books in this series.

I received a print advance reader’s copy of this book from NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest review.
