Publisher's Summary

Housed in a rustic red barn, the Simple Gifts crafts shop celebrates the talents of the Amish of Willow Ridge and the faith that inspires them. For the acceptance of simplicity opens the path to love.

As far as Edith Riehl is concerned, the baby twins thrust suddenly into her arms are a heaven-sent gift. Unable to conceive, she longs to be a mother with a home of her own.

She's going to abide by her promise to handsome Asa Detweiler to take care of them while he looks for their real father. And even if her domineering dat Cornelius refuses to countenance Asa's suit, she can only pray that the bachelor's honesty and persistence will uncover the truth.

Asa can't understand why anyone would think that he would be so dishonorable as to father babies and then abandon them. He's determined to clear his name, but Edith's caring ways also inspire him to help heal her wounded spirit and earn her trust. In the face of heartbreaking deception, he and Edith must find the strength to understand, forgive, and claim their own hearts' joy.

Charlotte's got another good one!

I was so excited reading this and yet there still a cliffhanger so I can't wait until the next installment in the series. Thank you Charlotte for leaving me hanging...

Keep writing Charlotte Hubbard! I can’t get enough of your books. Love how the theme of forgiveness is woven through all of them. So excited to listen to the next in the series.

Wonderful Series

I enjoyed listening to all 3 books. I felt they had a really good twist to the plot & they held my attention. It was like being on an emotional roller coaster in a good way, but I love roller coasters😁 I love the way the Lord is represented through compassion, love, forgiveness, & grace. The Sunday after I finished the series, I went to church & during worship I found myself praying that I would show the same characteristics as the residents of Willow Ridge. 😊

A Most Original Tale! Couldn’t Put It Down!

Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, the unexpected happened! The author leads you to believe this is an Amish love story..., and it is...but with intrigue, deception, mystery, and hints that lead the reader to nowhere. It’s a page-turner of a most pleasant kind. If you like books in an Amish setting that keep you guessing, you will love A Simple Vow: Simple Gifts.
