A Mother for His Children by Jan Drexler

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, A Mother for His Children. This book is an Amish story and I love the Amish so I really enjoyed it. I think we all would like a simpler way of life but I'm not sure I would like all that extra work and I'm not able to embrace all of their religious traditions. I like being able to walk in victory. This story is well written, it has great characters, and interesting humorous situations.

Ruthy Mummert is humiliated by the man she was courting for eight years. His marriage to her best friend was announced at services and then it was found out she was with child. Ruthy couldn't live with the shame and seeing them all the time so she answers an ad for a housekeeper in another community. When she arrives she finds out her mother was right, she should have asked more questions. The man arrives with four young boys, he was much younger than she expected. He had only mentioned a daughter but had said she would care for his children so she would be caring for five children but as they arrived she soon met more children; finally unable to control her tongue she went out to the barn to demand to know how many children he actually had. Ten children how would she handle that?

Levi Zook had expected an old made not a beautiful young woman, How could someone like her control his children and teach his girls how to care for a home. He didn't expect to be attracted to this woman and now his older sister told him how inappropriate having her here was. His sister wanted to take the younger twin girls and told the elders about Levi's situation when he refused, finally unable to lose this caring woman he offers a marriage but she demands a marriage of convenience, not at all what Levi wants.

A great journey of forgiveness, healing, and restoration. I know you will want to read it. You can purchase this book at the address below. God bless you and have a great weekend.
