The Amish Midwife by Patricia Davids (Lancaster Courtships)

An Unexpected Family

Amish midwife Anne Stoltzfus is used to late-night visitors—but she's shocked to find reclusive bachelor Joseph Lapp on her doorstep with a baby in his arms. Their neighborly quarrels are pushed aside when Joseph explains that his sister has left her daughter in his care—and Joseph needs Anne to be her nanny. Soon they're bonding over baby Leah, and the love they feel for her is healing them both. When Joseph makes an offer of marriage, Anne's painful past resurfaces and she's unsure of what to do. But taking a chance could mean love—and family—are waiting just across the fence.

My review: The Amish Midwife by Patricia Davids (Lancaster Courtships)

4 stars

This is book three of the Lancaster Courtship.  It can stand alone.  It is a good clean Amish romance.
Cute baby, fun and trouble making goats.

 Anne Stoltzfus is a Amish Midwife.  She also grows vegetables and sells them at her vegetables stand.  She loves babies.  Hates her neighbors goats that keep getting out of their  yard and into her gardens.

Joseph Lapp is a Amish goat farmer.  He is a loner.  Goes to church, helps where he can but does not socialize.

Leah a three month old baby that was dropped off one evening by her mother to her Uncle Joseph.
Leah is a crying baby at first because she is sick.

I like how the Amish came together to help with the need of Joseph of having a baby all of a sudden.

One scene that gave me a chuckle was a little five year old girl looking into the Midwife's bag to see if she had a extra baby girl in their to replace her baby boy if possible.

I smiled a lot while reading this book.  Made me want to try some of the produce that Anne sold.

I will read more of Patricia Davids books in the future.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Amish Midwife.
