Book One in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series
Every year, 30–40 young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive ‘resident’ status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides! Sarah Shelter has lived in West Kootenai for the last ten years and wonders if she will ever fall in love.
Since the tragic death of her best friend, she carries her memories in a jar along with the small items connected to them. For just as long, she’s also been carrying around her emotions instead of allowing them to penetrate deep into her heart. Now she’s met a kind and gentle man who may be able to break down the wall. But can Sarah risk her heart to finally achieve her dreams?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This review should not surprise anyone who knows how much I rave about Amish fiction, and this book is no exception to the rule.  When I say that this book is a fantastic, clean, Christian romance, you can know that I am sincere.  No profanity, no sex, and really no preachiness either.  All you will find is everything that makes the Amish people wonderful and hard-working and a sweet romance to boot.

I love the fact that this book shows how things have been changing in some Amish communities.  Even our heroine, Sarah, sees that.  And Jathan hopes that Sarah will be the one who can help him change.  This book celebrates the things that make the Amish people so endearing--baking, woodworking, etc.  And whenever they don't understand, they turn to God for direction.  Their faith is simple but strong.

The messages of this book are universal.  Follow your dreams no matter what.  When a loved one dies, you cannot stop living.  You have to face your past, or you will not be able to move on with your life.  You will find these messages and more--something for everyone.  Oh, and there are a couple of twists along the way, so don't think you have it all figured out!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
