A Hopeful Heart by Amy Clipston
Book DescriptionIn A Hopeful Heart, the first novel of the new Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series from best-selling author Amy Clipston, Hannah finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Her community offers her love and support after the untimely death of her husband, but an Englisher offers her the chance of a new life after her unexpected tragedy. Wealthy businessman Trey Peterson is surprised by his attraction to the gentle Amish woman who works as a housekeeper in the Lancaster Grand Hotel. They share a common bond of loss and are able to offer each other comfort and support as they journey through their grief.

A Hopeful Heart is filled with surprising twists as Hannah tries to balance her life in the Amish community and her growing love for an outsider.
My Take: I wish to apologize for the lateness of this review. Somehow this book got lost in the shuffle and I just didn't get around to reading it in a timely manner. That being said better late than never.
This book was totally worth the wait and I loved it from the start. I live outside Lancaster City and in Lancaster County so I always like to see how much is truly accurate in the Amish books set around here. I really enjoyed this book and I think that it addressed some things that aren't just Amish related but human related like gossip. I am looking forward to seeing how this series plays out and I am looking forward to revisiting the characters.
I received a review copy of this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest opinion.
