For a disadvantaged young woman and a displaced young man, a lasting love is going to take more than chance–it’s going to take a miracle.
Muscle weakness has left Grace Wagler with a broken body–and her childhood best friend has left her with a broken heart. She can hold her own in the timber camp (and do everything else the other women in Badger Creek can do), but in an Amish district where women outnumber men three to one, marriage is an unlikely prospect for a girl with bad legs.
Ben Eicher just arrived in Michigan from Pinecraft, Florida. When his most recent shenanigans proved too much for his “daed”‘s patience, Ben was sent to the Upper Peninsula to work in the lumber camp–and he’s neither proud of his behavior nor thrilled about his new home.
But when Ben meets Grace, the struggling young woman quickly piques his curiosity. Of course, the last thing Grace wants is another friendship with a man who pities her. Tired of physical pain and romantic dead ends, Grace is ready to leave Badger Creek for the muscle specialist in Ohio, even if it contradicts her father’s wishes . . . and Ben’s.
Meanwhile, two dangerous men have found their way into the district. It isn’t long before their unsavory plans ensnare Grace and Ben in a chase that will not only endanger their lives . . . but test their love.
When I first read,”A Miracle of Hope” I just knew that I had to get my hands on the next book! Ruth Reid just might be my next go to author for Amish fiction because she has a very extraordinary way of writing beautiful and heart touching Amish fiction.
I like how the author portrayed the heroine,Grace, in the novel. It’s very rare sometimes to read about a heroine who may have physical flaws because most heroines in fiction today are drop dead gorgeous not that there’s nothing wrong with that. But it’s very refreshing to read about a heroine who may have physical flaws but have a heart of gold every now and again. It was very encouraging to read about how Grace stepped out on faith to take courage in order to live life to the fullest.
The hero,Ben’s story was very touching to read about as well. I love how the author told his story without being preachy. It was AWESOME!
I thought that this book was a pretty good read but there were times that I thought that the romance between Grace and Ben went a little bit too far. In my opinion, I thought that the novel had too much kissing than what was necessary.
The mystery was good even though it wasn’t on the edge of my seat mystery. I thought it was pretty intense and adventurous to read about to be honest for an Amish novel.
The writing flowed pretty well and it did a good job of keeping my attention. I will say that it wasn’t as good as “A Miracle of Hope” but it I did enjoy reading it nonetheless.Woodland Miracle was a pretty good read with an awesome combination of faith,love,hope and courage. I’m totally excited to read whatever else this author has in store.
Happy Reading Y’all!! 🙂
