THE WONDER OF YOUR LOVE
A wonderful entry in the Land of Canaan series about an Amish widow and a Englisher brought together by a matchmaker. The characters are well rounded with just enough stubbornness in them. Wiseman knows her Amish facts and brings readers into a world few outsiders get the pleasure of taking part in.
Katie Ann Stoltzfus is raising her child alone after her husband left her for another woman, then died in a car accident. She is not interested in remarrying, but her friend has other plans. Eli Detweiler has arrived in Canaan for his niece’s wedding. When he meets Katie, he is smitten with her, but not willing to make a commitment. When matchmaker Martha gets involved, Katie Ann and Eli start looking at each other in a different light. (THOMAS NELSON, Oct., 320 pp., $15.99)
