Berkley Trade Hannah's Joy, Pleasant Valley Series #6

As Hannah struggles to adapt to Amish customs, she encounters William Brand, who works in the furniture shop next door. William also feels isolated from the community because of his stutter. Having studied speech therapy in college, Hannah offers to help William improve his speech, and slowly their timid friendship blossoms into deep affection. Still, Hannah is aware that the barriers between them are great. Her late husband, who came from a long line of military men, would object to Amish pacifist beliefs, and she isn't sure if she can raise her son in the community knowing that her late husband would disapprove.

BLURB: Returning to Pleasant Valley is giving Hannah Connor a much needed chance to start her life again. But now she must determine her real place in this world.....Hannah is a very determined young lady. She has a lot of spunk to pick up and move back to her Amish beginnings with a young son. She works hard taking care of Jaimie and working at the bakery. She is very lonely but being a widow can be that way. A lot of us can relate to this. She found some of the qualities she was searching for as time went on. She made a very hard decision on where her home really was.
HANNAH'S JOY is a page turner and one of those don't put down books. It is a tale of fiction but you can place yourself in their shoes. Some of the characters are from previous books so it's almost like you already know them. The book starts with a tragedy. Hannah Connor became an unexpected widow when her soldier husband was killed in the service. This tragedy may cause some readers to reflect on their own lives, with the wars and tragedies we encounter in today's world. It was hard for her to get used to living off the base and taking care of her little one, Jamie. Her husband had never even seen him before he died. Seeking comfort she went to live in Pleasant Valley, a place she hadn't been to since she was a child. She didn't know if she could get used to living plain again after living on an Army base. Hannah had never joined the Amish community. Her parents and her had left years before. Her mother had suffered from depression and had committed suicide. This had a deep, profound effect on Hannah. Hannah lived above her Aunt Paula Schatz's bakery sharing a two bedroom apartment with her aunt and her son, Jaimie. During the day, she worked in the bakery to help her aunt. She was hoping to get back on track and to start living again. She just isn't sure if she can live Amish. She met William Brand, who was a furniture maker and very shy because he had a stuttering problem. Hannah had gone to school to be a Speech Therapist but had to drop out. She offers to help William but he refuses. Hannah is drawn to.......
Marta Perry spent a lifetime in rural Pennsylvania. Her own Pennsylvania Dutch roots helped her to write about the Plain People who add to the rich heritage of her state. She has penned more than thirty-five inspirational romance novels and lives with her husband in a century old farmhouse.

I have purchased this series and can't wait for the next. The author brings the families in the story to life and when the book is finished you want the next one to be ready. I some time think I should buy the series and wait to read them after receiving them all but I can't wait the books are so good

it too. Didn't tho and was very please at her writing.

"HANNAH'S JOY" is Fantastic, if I could give this more than 5 stars I would, once you start this book you will not want to put it down until the very last page, even if you have not read the whole series you will be able to follow this story line, You will fall in love with Hannah and her little boy, he is just the sweetest and William is just an awesome Amish man, I can hardly wait for the next book to be released . You will feel like you are one of the characters, Marta Perry is a wonderful author, I am so happy that she shares her talent with all of us readers.
!!!!!!THIS IS DEFINITELY A MUST READ!!!!!!!!!
