Fiction Full Of Grace
-From the back cover-
A bend in the road can be daunting
...or the beginning of everything
Aaron Troyer simply wants to farm in Indiana like his dat and grossdaddi before him, but instead he finds himself traveling to Wisconsin to oversee an uncle's small group of Plain cabins nestled along the banks of Pebble Creek. That also means he must work with the cabins' lovely but stubborn housekeeper, Lydia Fisher
Lydia is the most outspoken Amish woman Aaron has ever met, and she has strong opinions about how the guest cabins are to be run. She also desperately needs her job, and to keep it she must temper her reaction to her new employer. Though sparks fly at first, when danger unexpectedly overtakes them, nothing is more important to Aaron than making sure Lydia is safe.
Together they work to make the vacation property profitable, but can they find out who is causing trouble before damage is done? And can Lydia guard her heart, knowing that Aaron is biding his time before he can return home to his farm? Or is her dream of a home of her own more than just a wish and a prayer?
Another enjoyable story from one of the top Amish Fiction authors.
One of the nicest things about this book was getting to check in with characters from A Promise For Miriam and getting to see how they are doing. Miriam and Gabe are now married and are building a family. Esther (formerly worked with Miriam at the Plain school) is also married and has a little one. Miriam's parents are still dispensing wisdom and dote on their granddaughter-by-marriage, Gracie.
I won't spoil any surprises but the Kings and Yoder family have more happiness and heartache ahead in this story.
I have to admit that, at first, I didn't particularly like Aaron (the hero). He came across as an immature brat, but.... That didn't last, through the book he grows and matures under the responsibility of the cabins and with the help/advice of Gabe and Miriam's brother, David. Hard work and good friends help Aaron grow up in a most satisfying way.

I received no financial compensation for this review.
This book is slightly darker than it's predecessor but it has to be with the touch of mystery. Who is breaking into houses/businesses to steal, and why? Is it the new neighbors next to the Plain Cabins, could it be Amish kids, or could it be their own family and friends? You are just going to have to read A Home For Lydia to find out!
A Home For Lydia, Amish romance with a touch of mystery and danger!
