"The Decision" by Wanda E. Brunstetter

About this book:

  “Sometimes Jonah feels he must be unloveable...
  By a strange turn of events Jonah Miller was left at the alter by the love of his life. He hopes he left heartbreak behind when he moves from Pennsylvania to Illinois, settling into a new Amish community as a buggy maker.
  He starts to court Elaine Schock, who works with her grandmother to host dinners in their home for tourists. But when her grandfather suddenly dies and her grandmother—her only living relative—slips into dementia, Elaine ignores her growing love for Jonah and sets him free to look for love elsewhere.
  Jonah is sure he won’t find a love a third time. Is God calling him to remain single, or does he have a different plan fr the lonely Amish man.”

My personal Rating-
{Girls who are interested in illnesses (MS, dementia, and diabetes) might rate this book higher}
This is not a happy book. It’s very real-life-ish and I read fiction for happy endings—which I understand isn’t always real life. This book just made me sad. With all the illnesses, funerals, and couples not staying together, I personally wasn’t a fan.

See y’all on Monday with a new review! :)
