His Accidental Amish Family

Rachel J. Good. Zebra, $8.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-1-42015-046-9

Good continues her Unexpected Blessings series (following His Unexpected Amish Twins) with this enjoyable story of an Amish woman who gets a second chance at love and motherhood. Due to an accident seven years earlier, Anna Flaud has lost the use of her legs, as well as her ability to have children. What drives her is her promise to sweetheart Gabe that she would answer his marriage proposal once she could walk to meet him. Levi King, Anna’s new physical therapist, finds both her beauty and her determination attractive. Though Anna develops feelings for Levi as well, her focus remains on Gabe. After a great deal of effort and years of therapy, Anna achieves her goal—only to discover Gabe is engaged to another woman. Levi tries to court Anna, but she turns him down because she doesn’t want to deprive him of having children. While Good’s wholesome narrative is predictable, the characters are strong; Anna and Levi’s commitment to faith is revealed organically as both must learn to give themselves over to God’s plan. Fans of Amy Clipston’s Amish novels will love this. (Dec.)
