The Forgotten Recipe
By: Amy Clipston
Seth Lapp is kind, hardworking, and handsome—but most importantly, he loves his fiancée, Veronica Fisher. As for Veronica, she knows how lucky she is to be marrying her best friend.
When an accident on the job steals Seth away from her, a heartbroken Veronica is certain she will never love (or be loved) again. Yet when she discovers a batch of forgotten recipes and opens a bake stand to sell her Mammi's raspberry pies, Veronica picks up a regular customer who gives her heart pause . . . despite her best efforts.
Jason Huyard was with Seth when he lost his life—a memory that haunts him still. So when he seeks out the grieving fiancée to convey his condolences, the last thing he expects—or wants—is to fall in love. Nonetheless, Jason soon finds himself visiting Veronica's bake stand every week . . . and it's for more than the raspberry pies.
Now, as Veronica's heart thaws, Jason can't bring himself to tell her he was there when Seth died. Can he ever reveal where he was on the day her life derailed? Or will his secret rob them of the second chance at love they both want?
Any Clipston never fails to lift my spirits with her wonderful books. In my opinion she is by far the best Amish writer because although her books have an Amish storyline, the situations can be applied to anyone’s life. In “the Forgotten Recipe” Veronica was sure she would never love again and when she had feelings for Jason, she felt she had betrayed Seth’s love for her. Jason also has his ghosts that he must confront before he can ask Veronica for her love.
This book is about learning to love again after the loss of someone you love and opening your heart to God’s will. This book is filled with love and inspiration. It is a great book for the romantic at heart.
