I just finished The Amish Widows Rescue and was once again blown away by the the writing of Rachel Good. She continues to make her stories relatable to the reader.

In The Amish Widow Rescue we get to meet and love some wonderful characters like  Grace Fisher, Elijah, and Graces children who you will just absolutely love. It is when Grace becomes a widow and Elijah steps in as a neighbor to help her out with chores. However, Elijah is judgmental at first and questions the way Grace is raising her children, but in reality it was his own fears and past that was haunting him.

If your looking for a good story that will make you want to turn the pages just a bit faster then I highly recommend  this book. You will be taking a journey with each person in the book and find that love and forgiveness can bring much healing to the soul.
