About this book:

  Linda is no stranger to hardship. Now she dares to hope for a chance at love and a new beginning.
  As the sole survivor of a buggy accident that left her orphaned at age four, Linda Zook was reluctantly raised by her Uncle Reuben. She longs to be worthy of someone, but the lasting trauma of her injuries and embittered upbringing have destroyed her self-worth. When Hannah Peterson asks her to work at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast, she’s finally able to realize some confidence.
  Aaron Ebersol left the Amish community seventeen years ago when he could no longer bear the restrictions or the constant tension with his father. Despite years of unanswered letters to his parents, and the roots he’s put down in Missouri, Aaron rushes back to the Amish community of Paradise, Pennsylvania, after receiving word of his mother’s stroke. Hesitant to get too close to the family he was once a part of, he decides to stay at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast. Talking with Linda allows him to explore his feelings about his family and his position in the Amish community.
  As Linda and Aaron open up to each other, their feelings for one another turn into more than friendship, and Aaron must make a decision about his future as an Amish man.
Can Linda and Aaron forgive the family members who have deceived and forsaken them? And will Aaron be able to convince Linda that she is worthy of his love?”

Series: Book #4 in the “Hearts of Lancaster Hotel” series. {I have read them all, but have not posted “A Hopeful Heart”’s review. You can view Book #2’s, “A Mother’s Secret”, review Here! Book #3’s, “A Dream of Home”, review Here! Plus a novella found in “An Amish Cradle” is connected to this series. You don’t have to read in order, but you’ll enjoy them more. I would recommend reading them in order.}

Spiritual Content- Talks about God & His Will; ‘H’s are not capital when referring to God; Bible reading and a few Scriptures are quoted; Prayers & Blessings over food; Church going; The Prodigal Son is mentioned and Aaron is considered one.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘stupid’; Mentions of when Aaron was a teen and he smoked, drank and lit a barn on fire with his friends.
