A Mother's Secret


About The Book:  Book two in the Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series.
Carolyn Lapp dreams of marrying for love. But will the errors of her past destroy this dream forever?  Carolyn Lapp longs to have a traditional Amish family. But she lives on her brother’s farm with her parents and her 15-year old son, Benjamin. Carolyn has never revealed the identity of Benjamin’s father and lives daily with the guilt and shame of her youthful indiscretion. Her brother simply will not forgive her.  His answer is to arrange a practical marriage for Carolyn to Saul, a widower with a little girl. But Carolyn isn’t convinced that Saul really loves her and believes he is simply looking for someone to help raise his daughter.  When Benjamin causes trouble at a local horse auction, horse breeder Joshua Glick decides that he must be taught a lesson. Carolyn and Joshua are unmistakably drawn to each other, but Joshua mistakenly assumes that Benjamin is Carolyn’s brother. Carolyn fears that if he discovers the truth, her past will destroy their budding romance.
After years of shame and loneliness, Carolyn suddenly has two men vying for her attention. But which of them will give her the family-and the unconditional love-she’s longed for?  Learn more and purchase a copy at Amy’s site.

My Thoughts On The Book:   This is the second book in a series.  It is a stand alone although it was comforting to have prior knowledge of the characters.  This is not my first Amy Clipston book, it was not the best book I have read of hers, still it won't be my last.  Even though it was not the best it still kept me turning the page!  I found myself drawn in to the characters lives.  My heart broke for Carolyn with her secret and for Saul, the man sort of caught in the middle. Saul is looking for a wife to help rear his daughter and that is all.  Carolyn is searching for love and doesn't want a marriage based on convenience, but he is carrying the burden of a secret.   This is a story about forgiveness and true love!  If you like Amish stories you might want to try this one out.
