Change of Heart by Molly Jebber, is an historical Amish story
Overview: A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance to discover love’s true way home…
Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith’s strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She’s never been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt’s wealthy mother is determined her son will marry a society woman.
With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances .
My Ideation: This is the second Amish book I have ever read. Both were written by Jebber and read this week. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters were very likeable. The main character Becca, has left behind her life as an Amish woman. She does not however, lose her identity as a godly woman.
The entire story centers around the characters having a “change of heart.” Each change leads to a positive experience. The men in the story are perfect gentlemen, which was a delight to encounter. Jebber keeps God in the story through prayer and the characters’ actions and demeanor. It was a very heartfelt story.
This review is based on my opinion alone. I was not awarded any compensation to write this review.
