Love Comes To Paradise

About The Book:  Love Comes to Paradise is the second book in bestselling author Mary Ellis’s New Beginnings series. It’s about fresh starts…and how faith in God and His perfect plans provide the peace and joy all long for.Nora King believes she is a woman in love. When Elam Detweiler leaves the ultraconservative Amish district of Harmony, Maine, and moves to Paradise, Missouri, Nora follows soon after. But does she love the man or the independence and freethinking he represents? Although she finds good work in her new town, Nora can’t seem to capture Elam’s Englisch-leaning heart, no matter how hard she tries. And then, unexpectedly, Lewis Miller comes from Harmony to offer Nora what every woman needs—a lifetime of unconditional love. As Lewis attempts to claim her heart, Elam’s interest piques. Will Nora come to her senses before Elam’s thoughtless choices ruin her reputation beyond repair?

About The Author: Mary Ellis grew up close to the eastern Ohio Amish Community, Geauga County, where her parents often took her to farmers’ markets and woodworking fairs. She and her husband now live in Medina County, close to the largest population of Amish in the country. They often take weekend trips to purchase produce, meet Amish families, and enjoy a simple way of life.
Favorite Verse: Colossians 3:13 (NLT) : Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
My Thoughts On The Book:  This book was a different portrayal of Amish life for me.  I have read many books yet never seen it told quite this way.  When I met the character of Elam Detweiler after he left the ultraconservative district of Harmony, Maine, and moved to Paradise, Missouri I knew I would not and did not like him. Nora King, a sad little waif followed him soon after and I could not understand the draw at first.  she can  herself to Elam in comes Lewis Miller, wishing to court Nora.  Which way will she lean?.  As the story unfolds it all makes perfect sense.  This is a great book.
