"A Miracle of Hope" by Ruth Reid

An arranged marriage, an unborn child, a deaf child, and two adults who have lost hope for love. are elements in this new novel by Ruth Reid. Can Lindie and Josiah put aside their differences and fear, and work together to raise two precious children while building a home?

Lindie is not married, but she is pregnant, and that means shunning by her Amish community. She had no idea what she would do to support herself and her unborn child until her brother, Eli, had the idea of an arranged marriage. Was it what she wanted? No, but she needed a solution and maybe God was opening a door. Josiah had a young family until his wife died suddenly. That left him and his eight year old deaf daughter to find their way forward together. Josiah agreed to marry Lindie, solving both dilemmas, but doesn't believe he will ever love again. Is love in the future for these two? Can they build a home and a marriage without love? Come visit them and see what miracles hope can bring.

This is a beautifully written story about the power of hope in overcoming difficulties in life. The characters and their stories will draw you in and you will find yourself crying with them, cheering with them, and pulling for them. I recommend this book to anyone who loves stories based on overcoming obstacles. It will leave you wanting more from the characters. I received my review copy from Litfuse Pubicity Group in exchange for an honest review.

How far can God's mercy reach?

Lindie Wyse is pregnant out of wedlock and thinks an arranged marriage is the only way to preserve her future. Josiah Plank is certain he'll never love again, but he needs someone to care for his eight-year-old daughter, Hannah. The two take on their arrangement tentatively at first but soon realize they are each in for more than they imagined.

Lindie experiences a breakthrough with Hannah when she recognizes Hannah's special gifts, but a risky pregnancy and serious health issues threaten to demolish the foundation Josiah and Lindie are building. Will their growing love survive despite their struggles, or will their hearts become as cold as the northern winter?
