My review: The Amish Mother by Rebecca Kertz (Lancaster Courtships#2)

4 stars

 The Amish  Mother was filled with love, drama and Amish life.  I loved the characters.

Elizabeth Fisher is 19 year old mother of seven. A widow of two months.  She has a crippled leg. She is Amish and living on a farm.  The younger children all call her mom but the oldest girl has a hard time accepting her as a mother.

Zachariah Fisher has come to find out about his older brother death and how his children are.  His family didn't even know about his wife Ruth's death  two years ago and remarriage to Lizzy.

The farm is his. By Amish tradition. He decides after seeing Lizzy with the children. To bring his sister Ester  with him to stay in the Grandparents house.
Zach and Lizzy keep having feelings for each other  but think it is wrong.

Ester runs into the boy she loved when she was fourteen and forced to move out of state with her mother.

I enjoyed reading this clean Amish romance.  It is not afraid to pray and do Gods will.

I was given this romance by Net Galley and Harlequin to read and in exchange to give a honest review of The Amish Mother.
