AMISH WIDOW's ESCAPE
AMISH WIDOW's ESCAPE by Samantha Price. Book 11 in "Expectant Amish Widows" series
Bridget losing her husband after 10 years, and taking 6 months off from her job as a graphic designer. Trying to make decisions, which didn't seem to be the right ones. Needing peace and new surrounding she finds a cabin that will offer her that. The motherly landlord, giving her the love and concern she needs. Once again her life has drastically changed, but she would accept it with time. It was all the other things, a house that hasn't sold. Then having dinner with Dan, and helping him, brings another concern. Her landlord, Ruth points out he is Amish, and they marry for life.
Thinking of her short marriage, which was based on friendship. Her parents just living in same house, that was not what she would want.
Samantha's story deals with an issue that has no easy answers. It will take a lot of soul's searching and time for Bridget. Time for old patterns and hurts to heal. Readers will enjoy this moving story, and ponder what she will decide. Given ARC audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
