Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard

My review today is on the Amish Romance, Promise Lodge. I'm not sure if you have ever read any of Charlotte's book but they are awesome. This book is an excellent example of her work. It is well written, heart warming and full of faith. My only complaint would be that her next book will not be at Promise Lodge. I would like to know how Rosetta, Truman, Mattie and Amos get together. So if you can't tell I loved her characters.

Three sisters purchase an old church camp and are intending to restore it to start a new Amish community. Mattie Bender Swartz is a widow from an abusive marriage, her sister  Christine Bender Hershbeger is a recent widow, and their sister Rosetta Bender is a maidel. They are tired of being told they must marry. They brought with them Mattie's two sons, Christine's two daughters, and Preacher Amos Troyer. The Amish community they behind are very upset about their decision.

Noah Swartz wasn't happy about coming to Promise Lodge. He had been working as an apprentice for Preacher Eli Peterscheim and was engaged to his daughter. Now the engagement was broken and he was working all the time trying to repair this place and build what they needed. He now had no hope of making a living for himself and a family.

Deborah Peterscheim is thrown out of her father's house and has no where to go so she comes to Promise Lodge hoping they will take her in. She's hoping to restore her relationship with Noah and find a family that will care about her.

A journey of this family group and their adventures in starting a new community and the adversities that come against them. It's a great read and I know you will enjoy every minute of it.
