Miracles at Promise Lodge

Reviewed by Susan Dyer

Romance | Amish

Charlotte Hubbard takes her time introducing you to each of the characters and their problems in MIRACLES AT PROMISE LODGE and how they are feeling. I immediately felt as if I knew them all and was right there at the kitchen table hashing things out and praying. In no time, I was sucked into their lives and the issues they were dealing with. The plot is very interesting and had me turning the pages late into the night. Be prepared not to do anything else once you start reading this well-written and hopeful tale. I found myself thinking about all of these wonderful characters long after I finished reading. How strong these people had to have been to leave their Amish community to start another one. Speaking of strong, wait until you meet Isaac, who has come to Coldstream for a fresh start. Only, his reputation has preceded him and just about everyone is freaking out that he is there.

Three sisters leave their Amish church community to start a new one. One where the women are valued and not belittled or abused. MIRACLES AT PROMISE LODGE introduces you to Amish women that you aren't used to reading about. These women are independent and behave in a way that the bishop wouldn't be happy with. These three sisters can not stand the ways things are handled in their community in Coldstream so they buy an abandoned campground and turn it into Promise Lodge. A place where women can come and be treated as equals. A place for new beginnings. MIRACLES AT PROMISE LODGE is the eighth book in the Promise Lodge series and it was wonderful to catch up with my old friends. When Isaac arrives at the store he hopes to work at he meets Vera Brubaker, who has come to Coldstream to help her aunt, who has been put on bed rest trying to avoid another miscarriage.

Charlotte Hubbard is now on my author radar and she will have me running to every book she releases and MIRACLES AT PROMISE LODGE is exactly why. When it was over, I wanted to keep reading and stay in the characters' business. I was giggling, laughing out loud and even holding back tears as I watched each of the characters grow. Charlotte Hubbard pulls you right into all of their lives and once you start, you won't be able to put this wonderful story down. As an added bonus, Charlotte includes recipes in the back of the book. I would love to be able to visit MIRACLES AT PROMISE LODGE and indulge in some of these wonderful recipes.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Fresh Fiction. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

SUMMARY

Returning to the fan-favorite world of Promise Lodge, the small-town Missouri setting for her beloved Amish inspirational romance novels, Charlotte Hubbard charms readers with a Mother’s Day themed tale perfect for fans of Shelley Shepard Gray and Beth Wiseman!

A season of change has blessed the Amish of Missouri’s Promise Lodge, as mothers-to-be anticipate the arrival of their little miracles and one young man’s life is about to take an unexpected turn as he sheds his bad boy reputation and embraces the value of faith and hard work.

Long-time residents of Promise Lodge welcome a wave of newcomers that includes a pretty potter who’s come to help an expectant couple, and a hard-working dairy expert ready to manage the herds on the expanding Burkholder farm. Then there’s Isaac Chupp, the handsome, charming son of a notoriously unyielding Bishop from nearby Coldstream. Isaac has recklessly rebelled against his dat, and his bad boy reputation precedes him. Now he seeks a fresh start, applying for work at Dale Kraybill’s bulk store.

Proving himself reliable while Dale takes off for his wedding trip is Isaac’s bold first step. But more miraculous awakenings may come as he settles into the warm new light of the faithful community. And while Promise Lodge celebrates an abundance of newborns as summer turns to fall, Isaac discovers a kindred soul who has her own share of challenges. In helping her, he just may find his true purpose in loving selflessly, building up, and giving back . . .
