The Wonder of Your Love by Beth Wiseman

Katie Ann is an Amish woman who's husband left her for an English woman.  He then dies in a accident.  Katie Ann found out that she was pregnant after her husband left her for the other woman and never told him.  Now she finds herself a new single mother with trust issues.

Eli is an Amish widower who's wife died 17 years ago.  He raised his 6 children by himself and is ready to enjoy life free of the responsibilities of children.  He's ready to travel and enjoy a slower paced life.  He travels to Canaan for a wedding and a long vacation.  There he meets Katie Ann and there is an instant connection, not to mention many friends who try to play matchmaker. 

Katie Ann and Eli admit to their selves and to each other that their relationship will never work since they are both in different places in their lives, but they decide to remain friends.  A wonderful friendship blossoms and so does love.  They both come to the realization that God's plans are not always our own plans.   They are better. 

The Wonder of Your Love is the second book in The Land of Canaan Series by Beth Wiseman.   This is the first book I have read by Beth Wiseman and I really liked it.  Although it was the second book in the series and I didn't read the first book I was not lost and had no trouble following the story line.  The only negative thing I can say about the book is that I found it a little boring at times.  It was very predictable and it was easy to figure out which way the story of each character was going to turn.  Other than that though it was a good read.   The character of Martha had me chuckling at times with her outspoken ways and her exaggerated health problems.  I was also touched by the forgiving nature of Katie Ann and how she helped the mistress of her deceased husband.  I give it 4 out of 5 stars!

This book was provided to me by the publisher, Thomas Nelson through in exchange for my honest review.
