Home to Paradise (The Coming Home Series #3) by Barbara Cameron - Amish Fiction from Abingdon Press

ISBN13: 9781426769931
My thoughts: This is a gentle story about a young woman and young man who really care for each other but whose lives aren't meshing as they would wish. For personal familial reasons, John and his two brothers had left their Amish home and community and ventured into the outside community and away from the Amish. Eventually John's two brothers returned to the Amish community and church and married young Amish women. John just couldn't seem to do this and his former sweetheart, Rose Anna, really wished he would return back to the Amish fold and to her.

John does live and work nearby on a horse farm owned by a retired big city attorney but he also works two other small jobs. He is not in the Amish church and this is the major reason he can not court and marry Rose Anna. John does help his two brothers on their farms typical of the way that the Amish have of helping each other.

His relationship with Neil, the owner of the horse farm, soon becomes close and similar to that of father and son. John truly finds joy in working on the horse farm and is considered a "horse whisperer."

The gentle story is somewhat predictable but there is a nice surprise twist or so to it. Barbara Cameron's writing is very enjoyable. I highly recommend this delightfully clean read.

About the book: Rose Anna Zook has watched her two older sisters marry two Stoltzfus men and has always thought she and John, the third Stoltzfus brother, would marry, make a home together, and have children. But John has other ideas. He's enjoying his Rumschpringe in the Englisch world a little too much and isn't interested in returning to the Amish community---especially to marry.

Rose Anna is determined to bring her man back into the Amish fold. John is equally determined to live his life free and unencumbered. Who will win this battle of wills? Will love prevail?
