Publisher's Summary

Second chances come at the most unexpected times....

Widow Laura Beth Yoder longs for a family of her own. So much so that she’s preparing to leave the sleepy Amish town she calls home to find love. But a terrible storm washes out the creek, forcing her to wade in and save the life of an Englisch man and his adorable infant son. As they recover at the farm, the baby brings sunshine and joy, while the handsome outsider is filled with shadows...and secrets. 

Joshua King owes his life and his son’s to Laura Beth. Still, lingering at her farm is out of the question. He must fulfill a promise he made to his estranged wife on her deathbed: to deliver their son to his Amish in-laws. With his dark past, Joshua has no other choice. But his plans never took this sweet and surprising Amish widow into account. She just might be his second chance at happiness...and love.

Wonderful story

I loved this story. The story held my interest from the first chapter, and the author used no unnecessary filler. A great book.

I would have liked to give this narrator 5 stars for her great job acting with deep emotion in the appropriate areas. She needs some work on her male voices, and it’s peculiar to me that they would use the worst male voice for the main male character. It sounded like someone whose voice was hoarse from a cold, and she spoke it in monitone, which detracted greatly from the interesting character. She also tends to speak with a bit of a staccato cadence. The strength of the story carried my interest though, and I would recommend it because of that.

The Wish

I am starting out on my review to say the only negative I can give is the male narration of Caleb. Everyone else is very well done. When the Audio books are read, I wish more attention is given to the choice by the author in choosing the participant that will be speaking all the parts, male and female.
“The Wish” story is so well written, from the very beginning to the very end, not knowing how it will be finished. Anyone reading this, I do hope this helps in your decision to read this or not. These Amish stories are so informative teaching the background. The only thing it did not tell was the actual year that it was written about.

My Musings

Wow, just wow! What a fantastic book! I loved, loved the characters so much. The hero and heroine are such humble individuals. They stole my heart from the beginning. I’m so thrilled they were able to find their happy ending! This book is the reason why I enjoy Amish fiction. Also, the narrator is outstanding and truly brought the characters to life. Happy reading/listening!

Beautiful Story

I loved this book ! The storyline was new and fresh. I also am from Kansas and my hometown was mentioned and where my daughter lives and where my best friend lives that was so fun hearing that. Yoder is a Amish town and is about 15 minutes from where I live. I recommend this book. The narrator needs a little practice but she did pretty good as well.
