Willow: Bride of Pennsylvania is second in the unprecedented 50-book American Mail-Order Brides series.
When a fire destroys the factory where Willow Miller works, her only choice for a secure future comes through becoming a mail-order bride to ex-Amish Amos Stoltzfus and moving to her ancestral home of Pennsylvania. Hope carries her forward into a new life, but guilt over her part in the fire that destroyed the factory threatens to hold her back.
Amos Stoltzfus is overjoyed to bring someone as sweet and special as Willow into his life to recapture a sense of family and love that he has been missing. But Amos has a past of his own and unresolved conflict with his neighbor and former best friend, Mark Lapp, that stands in the way of family, happiness, and the community around him.
Can Willow help resolve the pain and heal the breach that divides Amos from his community and his culture, or will her troubles stand in the way of her and Amos' happiness?
Audible:I found this book to be a sweet 'mail order bride' story.Set in Lancaster Pa,Willow is looking for a new situation when she sees a man there is looking for a wife.She goes and discovers a man that has shunned his family or vice verse.Through time she hopes to change things.Linda Velwest does a nice job of narrating the innocence of this book.I was provided this book free by the narrator, author or publisher.
I really enjoy these wholesome Mail Order Bride books so very much. I'm not sure why, perhaps it is the nostalgia and the excitement of moving to a new place where no one knows you.
Willow has a guilty conscience because the factory in which she worked burn down and she thinks that it was something she had done. She cannot live with herself nor the thought of putting all of her friends and neighbors out of work, so she answers a mail order bride ad.
The ad is from Amos. In their correspondence she learns he was formerly an Amish community member – but no longer. She wonders why, but as a complete and sort of secluded stranger in this new land of her husband, she doesn't quite dare ask.
Well thought out in a bit deeper plot than in other novel that's novellas of this sort.
Linda Velwest is able to pull off all of the characters needed for this story, including young men and women as well as older folks & an occasional child. Very well done.
I mention that I enjoy these books in my first paragraph. I began to listen to them because, as with this book, *it was given to me in exchange for my review.
These "wholesome" stories are a nice break between the contemporary romance that I normally listen to. I have no reason in the world not to recommend this book to anyone.

I enjoyed this sweet story that starts off with Amish roots, moves away from them and then comes back to the Amish in the end. Willow and Amos must confront their pasts in order to make their marriage work. At times sweet, sometimes funny, Merry Farmer does a good job with the story line and characters. Linda Velwest does a very good job portraying the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone loving to read about the Amish life and needs a quick book to read or listen to.
I was given a copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

I was given this book for free in return for my honest opinion and honestly this book is good. I love beginning as they are writing the letters to each other but I know that the narrator also has alot to do with it because her voice to me goes so well with these characters. I recommend you try it if you are looking for a sweet feel good story where two people learn how to forgive.

I love mail order bride books, something about marrying at first sight and ending with a happily every after does it for me. Willow, a woman who answers an ad in the Groom Gazette is off to meet her husband to be, Amos. She is running from a past where she thinks her clumsiness has resulted in a fire. She is attracted to Amos for several reason, but to me her biggest reason is his Amish background. Amos is a bachelor searching for someone to fill his lonely life. Willow's arrival causes all kinds of situations, from burning food to befriending those Amos longs to be friendly with. Will his past keep them from falling in love? You can only find out by listening.reading the book. While short, this book has a lot of character with a lot of characters. It is a well thought out storyline and is warm and fuzzy.
Linda Velwest is the perfect voice for a historical mail order bride book. She does a wonderful job.

Willow and Amos need each other to examine their roots, in order to move on into the future. A sweet story with exciting elements along the way.
The narration was well done. The characters were excellently portrayed.
