Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son’s mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.
Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won’t rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo’s worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.
When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible—not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo’s dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future . . . or will she simply run away?A Dream of Miracles is book three in The Amish Wonders Series. If you haven't read the first two books in this series, don't worry! It is a great stand alone book as well.
I really enjoyed this novel and connected well with the characters. My heart broke for Mattie. It seemed that no matter how hard she tried everything went wrong for her. Heartache after heartache befalls her, but she never lets go of her faith. Bo was just as likable and his willingness to help Mattie was admirable even when it brought opposition to his own life.
This was unlike a lot of Amish fiction stories and the whole child abuse and the involvement of child protective services was very interesting to me. It took me a little while to figure exactly what was going on with Mattie's son and I liked the bit of mystery surrounding it.
If you enjoy Amish fiction this would be a great book for you! Very enjoyable and written by a seasoned Amish storyteller - Ruth Reid.
