About the book:
Katie Ann lost the love of her life. Then God offers her a new beginning in Colorado.

Katie Ann Stolzfus lives in the small Amish community of Canaan, Colorado. At forty she is widowed and raising her first child. But baby Jonas will never know his father, and Katie Ann wonders if her Heavenly Father hasn't forgotten about her as well. Is it really God's plan for her to be a single parent?

Eli Detweiler has come to Canaan for a wedding and a long vacation. Having raised six children following the death of his young wife, Eli is finally an empty-nester. He's enjoying the slower pace of having no one to care for but himself.

When Katie Ann and Eli meet, there is an instant connection. Yet as strong as the attraction is, they both acknowledge that a romance would never work. He is done parenting, while she has just begun.

But as their friendship slowly blossoms into feelings that are as frightening as they are intoxicating, Katie Ann and Eli question if the plans they made for themselves are in line with God's plans.

Can Katie Ann entrust her heart to another man, and rediscover the wonder of God's love?


My Thoughts:

The Wonder of Your Love
by Beth Wiseman
Copyright 2011
ISBN: 9781595548863
These past few years have seen an influx of Amish fiction authors and stories. While I enjoy an occasional story centered around the Amish and their communities I don't often add these to my "must read" list--until now. With authors like Suzanne Woods Fisher and now my new fave, Beth Wiseman, Amish fiction has definitely become more interesting. These authors have given Plain fiction a more edgy feel and I LOVE it! Now if I scared you away with the word edgy, don't worry there's no content that will make you blush it's just a lot different than my grandma's favorite Amish books. For instance this book deals with infidelity in marriage--not an everyday topic in Amish fiction I'm sure! The author deals with a difficult situation in a tasteful manner while not skirting around the side affects like bitterness. She even broaches the topic of physical abuse later in the story. Despite what Katie Ann faced in her life outside of the Canaan Amish community this book does not have a "heavy" feel. The message of hope and love in Christ and learning to trust make this book a pleasant read for anyone, fans of Amish stories or not.

  2. The infidelity happened in Katie Ann's past but what resulted from that is still a part of her life. This book is still mainly a romance so you might like it!
