Hannah’s community offers her love and support after the untimely death of her husband, but an Englisher offers her the chance of a new life after her unexpected tragedy. Wealthy businessman Trey Peterson is surprised by his attraction to the gentle Amish woman who works as a housekeeper in the Lancaster Grand Hotel. They share a common bond of loss and are able to offer each other comfort and support as they journey through their grief.

Joshua Glick wants nothing more than to offer his friendship and love to Hannah and her family. Not only is he her late husband’s brother and business partner, he has always been in love with Hannah.

A Hopeful Heart is filled with surprising twists as Hannah tries to balance her life in the Amish community and her growing love for an outsider.

My thoughts: This is the first book that I have read by Amy Clipston. I really enjoyed her take on Amish Fiction. The story was different than the other authors who write Amish Fiction. It was an enjoyable book.

I really liked Hannah as a character. She was very real and you couldn’t help but not to like her. Her children all had ifferent personalities that made the story more interesting. All the characters were intriguing and you had the ones that you loved to dislike that just made you cringe. I look forward to the next book in this series. Thank you for a wonderful story.
