211/2018: Liza's Second Chance

"…I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead."
(Philippians 3:13, NLT)

Lisa owned the bakery in town.  She loved her job.  She loved her family and the Amish community she lived in.  She was a widow from a very unhappy marriage.  She appreciated her freedom and never wanted to experience pain and harsh criticism ever again.

Jacob, a widower, moved to Charm, Ohio to start a new life with his teenage daughter.  He prayed that one day he would meet someone to share the rest of his life with.  

Jacob walks into the bakery and he is smitten with Liza.  Was there any chance for the two of them to have a future together?  Will Jacob's daughter accept Liza?

Lisa allowed the past to put up a wall for protection.  Jacob came across a little strong ( in my opinion).  He needed to learn patience.  Jacob's daughter, Ellie, had to work through her grief before she can move forward.

The characters were warm and caring.  Charm, Ohio did have a few residents who were critical and judgmental.  

Great story.  I enjoyed it and loved how it worked out in the end.

I received this for free to review.
