Book review disclosure.

Journey to Pleasant Prairie #3
Amish Fiction

When the future is threatened by the past, 
can she trust herself to make the right choice?

Despite growing pains in her 1846 Amish community in Indiana, Naomi Schrock has settled into a comfortable life in her parents' home with her adopted son, Davey. Surrounded by family and friends, she tries not to think about the fact that she's not at the top of any man's list of potential wives. Yet when Cap Stoltzfus moves into the area and befriends Davey, Naomi finds herself caught between the plans she has made for her future and the tantalizing thought that Cap might be part of a life she never dared to hope for.

When a couple shows up claiming to be Davey's true family, Naomi and Cap must unite to make the decision that will determine the boy's future--as well as their own.

My Thoughts

I have been eagerly waiting for Naomi's story since the beginning of this series. Naomi is such a gentle and giving person and to see her be passed by time after time was heartbreaking. But of course we know that everything comes in God's timing.

It's looking like Naomi is going to have to be content to just be a momma to her adopted son Davey. A husband doesn't seem to be in her future. But just as she's determined to set that dream aside her family gets a new neighbor in the form of Cap Stoltzfus. He's kind and handsome to boot so of course Naomi is sure he would have no interest in her. Naomi is selling Cap short. He sees beyond her physical imperfections and into her heart.

Naomi's Hope was a wonderful conclusion to the Journey to Pleasant Prairie series. Lots of intriguing situations that remind us that the Amish communities face many of the same issues as the rest of the world. Some people are deceitful and can't be trusted. While others can be truthful and very trustworthy. Discerning the difference between the two is a blessing the Holy Spirit brings. 

This series left me wanting to know what happens next in the lives of these interesting people. I hope that Jan sneaks some of them in the next series she writes!
