They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and that’s just what Leah Miller discovers in Mary Ellis’ novel. The third book in the Miller Family series, Leah is the daughter of a church leader, so all eyes are on her in the tight knit Amish community she lives in. Leah goes to work for an Englisch (English) woman in a diner as her business partner. It doesn’t take long for things to spiral out of control. This book kept me interested as I was eager to see how Leah would juggle her home and diner lives, as well as who she would eventually decide to court out of the many men who had their eyes on her.
This book surprised me. In some aspects, everything didn’t work out just like real life. Sometimes in books, EVERYTHING turns out perfect in the end. Those books are boring and predictable. The three books in this series tied in well with one another and I enjoyed watching the characters develop. Even if you don’t read this series in order, Ellis gives a good enough background to understand the gist of what’s going on when the book begins. The only thing I would have liked to see was more about Aunt Hannah (heroine from the first book A Widow’s Hope). But overall, this book was excellent. You’ll probably see a lot of reviews for Amish fiction from me. I love Amish stories.
