Book Review: A Dream of Home
by Amy Clipston
Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2014
"A Dream of Home" is the third novel in the Amish fiction Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel Series, but one need not to have read the first two to enjoy this book about finding where one belongs in the world.
Madeleine Miller was a military nurse who lost her fiance. In search of healing, she returns to her late grandmother's home in the heart of Amish country in Pennsylvania. While her mother left before being baptized, Madeleine still spent many childhood summers here and remembers it as a place of peace, something she desperately needs.
Saul Beiler's wife left him, his daughter, and the community for life with another man. He's determined to keep his distance from the young woman who just moved in next door, but his daughter wants nothing more than to become friends with her. In spite of himself, he finds himself falling for a woman who is clearly off limits.
This is a quick read about healing and second chances which fans of Amish fiction will enjoy.
