Two Suitors for Anna by Molly Jebber, © 2017

Keepsake Pocket Quilt Series, Book 3

My Review:
amish built house: In 1900, widowed Mrs. Plank and her three daughters, Anna, Leah, and Beth, move to Berlin, Ohio, from their Amish community in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The story focuses at three years later, as their Mamm works at the general store while Anna and Leah manage the dry goods store. It is so interesting visualizing their day ~ with quilts they and other Amish women have made, aprons, tea towels and other merchandise displayed. Highly favored, word of mouth brings traveling Englischers to purchase.

I enjoyed meeting the Plank family and their influence on others by just being themselves. They share together, pray together, and live life together in a magnificent way. Each sharing chores at home and conversations with all being heard. I especially liked how they were supportive of each other and their decisions.

Image result for brown dogNewcomer, Daniel Bontrager, has lost his parents and his brother and his family in tragic ways. He and his dog, Otis, travel from Lancaster to Berlin to farm his brother's land. As Noah Schwartz meets Daniel, he expresses that he is going to Lancaster where his aunt and uncle live. Daniel's carpentry work is an asset to neighboring farms and businesses. Being befriended by the Planks and invited to their home for food and fellowship, he has found a place of belonging.

Special Care! Molly Jebber picture My favorite in this story is Beth Plank, the youngest daughter who stays with their neighbor, Mrs. Hochstetler, while her family works in town. She is full of so much joy and has words of wisdom to share without filters.

Come and join everyday happenings as trust and honesty between characters will be an asset to future generations.

  1. Wonderful review, Kathleen! I enjoy Amish fiction but I haven't read any of Molly's books. I am definitely interested in remedying that soon. Thanks for sharing.
