BRUSH OF ANGEL'S WINGS
Reid’s sweet addition to her Heaven on Earth series has characters who are conflicted about whether the Amish way of life is the life God wants them to choose. Th author deftly breathes new life into an overused storyline.
Rachel Hartzler is not very domestic. She is a lousy cook, and she cannot stand washing dishes or floors. She would rather help her dad milk the cows, drive the tractor in the fields and rub down the horses. When her dad hires Jordan Eagles to help him, so that Rachel can start learning how to be a proper Amish wife, she is mad and hurt. Jordan is not Amish, but his mother was. Despite the promise he made to her, he does not know if he has the courage to walk away from his English world and live as an Amish farmer — until he meets Rachel. Neither of them knows there is a heavenly helper directing them to see they were made for each other. (THOMAS NELSON, Apr., 368 pp., $15.99)
