A Dream of Miracles (Thomas Nelson, April 2016)
Amish widow Mattie vows never to love again . . . until a suspicious outsider with a shadowy past comes crashing into her fragile world. Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son's mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her. Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won't rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo's worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling. When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible---not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo's dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future . . . or will she simply run away?

Her interest grew into love as she saw the beauty in living a simple life.
My Thoughts About The Book:A Dream of Miracles by Ruth Reid is the third book in The Amish Wonders series. I have not read the others and did not have a hard time coming in during the middle of the series. Ruth Reid's book was well-written and easy to read just like all of her other books. She is one of my favorite authors. I know that the Amish world is very sheltered compared to the English world but I did find it difficult to believe that anyone in this day and age could be so uniformed about the government and life in general. Mattie really has a hard time with the English system of law and Child Protective Services. As always, I look forward to the next book by Ruth Reid. Even with the lack of knowledge of the system that Mattie possesses I still could not stop reading until I got to the end of the book.
