A Love Made New
An Amish of Birch Creek Novel
By: Kathleen Fuller
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Abigail Schrock left Birch Creek to go to Middlefield to take care of her younger sister, Joanna, who was hurt in the accident that also took the lives of her parents. Although she had not heard from her boyfriend, Joel Zook while she was gone, she knew in her heart when he asked her to stop by his house, that he was going to ask her to marry him. Instead he told her their relationship was over. He found someone else. In her despair she couldn’t help but wonder if she had been prettier or hadn’t gained those extra pounds while taking care of her sister, if Joel would have still loved her.
Asa Bontrager, an Amish ladies-man, was shocked when he felt God tell him to give up everything in Shipshewana and return to Birch Creek to pursue Abigail. Yet Abigail was having no part of Asa Bontrager.
If you are a fan of Amish novels, this is a must-read. It is filled with peace, love, and a renewing of faith. Abigail finds herself unwilling to stop running from the past and let the future happen because she still wants Joel and not Asa, however God has other plans for both of them. You will find yourself crying with her as she faces the heartbreak and loss of those she has loved and you will experience the joy as she learns to once again let God have first place in her life. I highly recommend this book!
