Publisher's Summary

Willow: Bride of Pennsylvania is second in the unprecedented 50-book American Mail-Order Brides series.
When a fire destroys the factory where Willow Miller works, her only choice for a secure future comes through becoming a mail-order bride to ex-Amish Amos Stoltzfus and moving to her ancestral home of Pennsylvania. Hope carries her forward into a new life, but guilt over her part in the fire that destroyed the factory threatens to hold her back.
Amos Stoltzfus is overjoyed to bring someone as sweet and special as Willow into his life to recapture a sense of family and love that he has been missing. But Amos has a past of his own and unresolved conflict with his neighbor and former best friend, Mark Lapp, that stands in the way of family, happiness, and the community around him.
Can Willow help resolve the pain and heal the breach that divides Amos from his community and his culture, or will her troubles stand in the way of her and Amos' happiness?

Wonderful Addition To Series



I really enjoy these wholesome Mail Order Bride books so very much. I'm not sure why, perhaps it is the nostalgia and the excitement of moving to a new place where no one knows you.

Willow has a guilty conscience because the factory in which she worked burn down and she thinks that it was something she had done. She cannot live with herself nor the thought of putting all of her friends and neighbors out of work, so she answers a mail order bride ad.

The ad is from Amos. In their correspondence she learns he was formerly an Amish community member – but no longer. She wonders why, but as a complete and sort of secluded stranger in this new land of her husband, she doesn't quite dare ask.

Well thought out in a bit deeper plot than in other novel that's novellas of this sort.

Linda Velwest is able to pull off all of the characters needed for this story, including young men and women as well as older folks & an occasional child. Very well done.

I mention that I enjoy these books in my first paragraph. I began to listen to them because, as with this book, *it was given to me in exchange for my review.

These "wholesome" stories are a nice break between the contemporary romance that I normally listen to. I have no reason in the world not to recommend this book to anyone.


*I was given this book in exchange for writing my thoughts, feelings & this review.
