Another series that once I got started, I couldn't put it down. Hope there is more to the series, as I would love to follow Hannah and Jake throughout their life long struggles and acheivements. Such a love only God could enrich. Thanks for the good reading.
4 StarsA Hope for Hannah By Jerry S. EicherHarvest House PublishersReviewed by Diane A. BrownSometimes, when dreams come true, they fall short of expiations.This second book is an improvement over the first in the series (A Dream for Hannah). The struggles of newly married and expectant parents Hannah and Jake Byler seem to multiply at every turn. With a cold Montana winter closing in, Hannah faces both physical and mental challenges that become over whelming.There is some deeper character development and the story line is more consistent. The descriptions were clear and believable. The dialogue seemed a bit wordy in places but in the long run, the necessary points were brought out. I felt the story had good teaching potential for the growing, impetuous young heart. The need for honesty, communication and trust between couples was emphasized as a vital ingredient for a successful marriage.When Hannahs world is crashing down around her the future looks bleak. Will things get worse before they get better? A good read for the growing young heart.
This was one of the most real Amish fiction books I have read. It made their lives more like real people, which they really are. The three stars are for lack of research on the area the story was set in, which is my local area and lack of reference that this story was fiction and things were not real. When you use real places, you have to at least address this.
