Book Review: The Wonder of Your Love

Book Description
Katie Ann lost the love of her life. Then God offers her a new beginning in Colorado.

Katie Ann Stolzfus lives in the small Amish community of Canaan, Colorado. At forty she is widowed and raising her first child. But baby Jonas will never know his father, and Katie Ann wonders if her Heavenly Father hasn't forgotten about her as well. Is it really God's plan for her to be a single parent?

Eli Detweiler has come to Canaan for a wedding and a long vacation. Having raised six children following the death of his young wife, Eli is finally an empty-nester. He's enjoying the slower pace of having no one to care for but himself.

When Katie Ann and Eli meet, there is an instant connection. Yet as strong as the attraction is, they both acknowledge that a romance would never work. He is done parenting, while she has just begun.

But as their friendship slowly blossoms into feelings that are as frightening as they are intoxicating, Katie Ann and Eli question if the plans they made for themselves are in line with God's plans.

Can Katie Ann entrust her heart to another man, and rediscover the wonder of God's love?

My Opinion
I loved this second book in the Land of Canaan Series by Beth Wiseman. Don't worry if you didn't read the first book (I didn't!) and it didn't take anything away from the book or confuse the reader. As far as I am concerned, it seemed like a standalone book!

I loved how this book was set in an unique setting from most Amish fiction. You don't think of many Amish people living in Colorado so that definitely added an interesting element to the book!

Best of all, I love that this book reminds us all that no matter what we think we have planned for our lives or what WE don't have planned, God may have a different plan and it will more perfect and wonderful than we can ever have imagined and we will definitely be thankful for God's plan in the long run!
