After facing heartbreak in their previous relationships, both Naomi and Amos vowed never to love again. In this first installment of The Amish Inn series from bestselling novelist Beth Wiseman, true love takes root in the deepest of wounds.
Sweet Naomi Byler cooks meals for the guests at The Peony Inn, where Amish sisters and owners of the inn Esther and Lizzie love her like a granddaughter. She’s as happy there as a young woman can be, considering that her fiancé, Thomas, has left her to court someone else. She knows she’ll get over the love of her life in due time, but she is beginning to assume marriage will never be a part of her future.
Amos Lantz and his mother are guests at the inn, visiting town for a cousin’s wedding. Attending a wedding is the last thing Amos wants to do since his own fiancée, Sarah, died tragically just a year ago.
Naomi and Amos understand each other’s grief and quickly become friends when they discover their mutual love of painting. As the two begin to paint through their sadness together, Esther and Lizzie play matchmaker—a risky move with the potential to backfire. And when Thomas makes an unexpected return intending to win Naomi back, she realizes she no longer knows her own heart.Sweet, uplifting Amish romanceThe first installment of The Amish Inn Novels—Book 1: A Picture of Love; Book 2: An Unlikely Match; Book 3: A Season of ChangeBook length: 85,000 wordsIncludes discussion questions for book clubs
