A Woodland Miracle: The Amish Wonder Series

About The Book:  For a disadvantaged young woman and a displaced young man, a lasting love is going to take more than chance—it’s going to take a miracle.  Muscle weakness has left Grace Wagler with a broken body—and her childhood best friend has left her with a broken heart. She can hold her own in the timber camp (and do everything else the other women in Badger Creek can do), but in an Amish district where women outnumber men three to one, marriage is an unlikely prospect for a girl with bad legs.  Ben Eicher just arrived in Michigan from Pinecraft, Florida. When his most recent shenanigans proved too much for his daed’s patience, Ben was sent to the Upper Peninsula to work in the lumber camp—and he’s neither proud of his behavior nor thrilled about his new home.  But when Ben meets Grace, the struggling young woman quickly piques his curiosity. Of course, the last thing Grace wants is another friendship with a man who pities her. Tired of physical pain and romantic dead ends, Grace is ready to leave Badger Creek for the muscle specialist in Ohio, even if it contradicts her father’s wishes . . . and Ben’s.
Meanwhile, two dangerous men have found their way into the district. It isn’t long before their unsavory plans ensnare Grace and Ben in a chase that will not only endanger their lives . . . but test their love.
About The Author: Ruth Reid is a CBA and ECPA best-selling author of the Heaven on Earth series. She's a full-time pharmacist who resides in Florida with her husband and three children.
My Thoughts On The Book:  I have read several of Ruth Reid's books and loved them all.  This one is no exception.  Once you pick this book up and begin to read you are so caught up in it that you cannot put it down.  The story line and characters are so well-developed that you will find yourself right in the middle of it.  From Florida to Michigan this is a wonderful tale about maturity, love, God, and listening to God.  There is excitement, romance, anger, and sadness all rolled up into a plot.  This is a must read if you love Amish fiction and I hope there will be more to come.
