Review: A Dream of Home by Amy Clipston

My Thoughts:
Another great one from the talented author Amy Clipston. I have been reviewing Amy's books since she started out writing and I have not been disappointed with any of them. I love her writing style and this story was another great example of that style. I really related to the characters and remember Saul and Emma, very well from Carolyn's story. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to other readers. 4.5 stars from this reviewer.

About the Book:
When she moves to Amish country to find peace and healing, Madeleine finds a special community—and a special man—who pull her out of her solitude into a new life.

Moving to Pennsylvania wasn’t in Madeleine’s original plans. She should still be in California and should have married her pilot fiancĂ© a year ago—but death has a way of changing everything. Now the former Air Force flight nurse is living alone in Paradise, Pennsylvania, and working as a maid at the Lancaster Grand Hotel. She isn’t exactly a widow . . . but she sure feels like one.
Saul Beiler isn’t exactly a widower . . . but his wife is long gone. His six-year-old daughter, Emma, doesn’t know that her mother fled the Amish community—and married another man—but she does know that her dat is lonely, and that a pretty young maedel just moved in next door. Madeline’s numb heart begins to thaw as she spends more time with the innocent and ever optimistic Emma. The stronger her friendship grows with the young girl, the more intrigued Madeline grows about the humble, strong, man raising her on his own.
But even as a strange attraction pulls Saul and Madeleine across a stark cultural divide, they—and everybody else—have to wonder: What could they possibly have in common besides heartache? Will love allow Madeleine to finally find the home she’s been dreaming of all along?

  1. Loved the thoughts you shared, Cindy. I look forward to reading this book soon, as well as some of Amy's earlier books. Let's just say that I'm a little behind because there aren't enough reading hours - or I'm a slow reader. Probably a combination of both. I'm glad to be on the team with you, Cindy.
