Descriptions du produit

A Home for Lydia Lydia is the most outspoken Amish woman Aaron has ever met, and she has strong opinions about how the guest cabins are to be run. She also desperately needs this job. Though sparks fly between boss and employee at first, when the cabins are robbed, nothing is more important to Aaron than making sure Lydia is safe. Full description

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Quaint Suspense, Burly Action, Cozy Romance, Amish Lore 15 février 2013
Par Harold Wolf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Author Chapman's characters make Pebble Creek become real. It's a community made from people with common struggles in life including romantic interest, economics, health issues, faith sustenance, and family. Vannetta Chapman writes a story amidst a Plain Folk community, but not making Amish an oddity based on beliefs. I like that! Plus I always come away with a new folk proverb such as: I know there is an ocean because I've seen a brook (or something like that.)

Forcibly sent from his Monroe, IN farm to his recently deceased [using the book's Amish glossary] `Onkel' Ervin's rentals in Wisconsin, felt like a Pebble Creek Hades. Finding "Plain Cabins' in such disrepair and the hired girl, Lydia, so disagreeable, furthered Aaron's resolve to do what he must and return to Indiana F-A-S-T. But she was 22-cute. And he was 23-handsome.

Who would have foretold that disaster would happen and Lydia's protection would become paramount over shutter & porch rail repairs?
"Life was unpredictable and he was not pleased about it." Quote p.73.
9-yr-old Grace (yes, book 1 folk reappear) continues her emotional healing after regaining her voice, thanks in part to step-mom Miriam. Abigail King's health fails. Chapman provides a few Englisch friends for life-style comparison.

I personally find this author very adept at drawing me into the ambiance of Amish-paced reading enjoyment; a buggy path to bristling bits of mystery/suspense. About then is when the action starts. Not your average Amish word-casserole. Vannetta Chapman is worth her weight in antique quilts. Of course there is also cozy romance. If guys and gals didn't end in love, there'd be no need for another volume of The Pebble Creek Amish Series.

Julia Beechy, introduced in this book, will be protagonist in book 3: A Wedding for Julia. First chapter was included in this book right after the discussion questions. That's like offering just one bite of blackberry cobbler.

Let me start off by saying I loved this book. Why you may ask....because Vannetta Chapman's books are like a breath of fresh air in a crowded elevator, that's why! She describes her work as "fiction full of grace" and she embodies this with perfection. I always rack my brain trying to come up with the right thoughts to express when trying to describe how much I enjoyed reading a particular book. Sometimes it's not easy simply saying "buy this book" or "you won't be disappointed" because I think authors who write awesome books for us deserve a little more. As I stated, Vannetta's books are like a breath of fresh air and A Home for Lydia fits the bill perfectly. You know what I mean....when a book flows so effortlessly it makes you feel as though you can't get enough like breathing in fresh clean air. I am a country gal so hopefully you know what I mean. With each turn of the page, I came to realize just how much I had grown to like the characters and I wanted them to succeed. I like a book to have an engaging story-line along with strong characters and this book delivers especially in the character department. The main characters are great and also there is a very like-able supporting cast which I think is extremely important because it adds depth to the overall story. I have to be able to connect with at least one character from a book, if not I have a hard time finishing it.There is no chance in not liking anyone from A Home for Lydia! I know you will love Lydia and be very happy to catch back up with Miriam, Gabe, and Grace.Yes, I would say character development may be Mrs. Chapman's forte because the residents of Pebble Creek will keep you thoroughly engrossed and may just steal a little piece of your heart.....

This book was provided to me from Harvest House Publishers via NetGalley for review.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Home for Lydia 11 février 2013
Par Kimberly Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Vannetta Chapman is quickly becoming one of my favorite Amish fiction authors. A Home for Lydia is the second book in The Pebble Creek Amish series, and I enjoyed it even more than the first book. Gabe, Miriam, and Grace reappear in this story, and take pivotal roles in helping Aaron and Lydia grow their relationship. This is good, in that I like to hear more about past characters, and bad, because I felt they took some of the story's focus from Aaron and Lydia. I enjoy characters who turn their relationship from "enemies" to friends to more, as the story progresses, and this is what happens with Aaron and Lydia. Some of the early confrontations between these two had me giggling. They are both flawed, beautiful souls, with burdens they each have to shoulder.

Vannetta's descriptions of the cabins and surrounding area are so well-written that I felt peace seep into my being as I read. The cabins remind me of Fall Creek Falls in Tennessee, and brought fond memories back to me. Some authors' books lack description of the setting in order to focus on the characters involved, but Vannetta's books immerse me in locations I'm not likely to visit myself.

Vannetta is not afraid to tackle tough subjects in her books, such as illegal drug use in this story, and the conclusion is well done. It isn't contrived or too far from what the real life consequences would be. The Amish may have different ways of living their faith compared to us, but they do have many of the same problems in their communities as we do. I'm looking forward to the conclusion of The Amish of Pebble Creek series later this year.

With thanks to the author for my review copy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Second Book As Good As The First 13 février 2013
Par Lynne Young - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is book 2 in the Pebble Creek Amish Series but can easily be read by itself.

Even though Lydia and Aaron were the main characters in this book I felt Grace, Miriam and Gabe's 9 year old daughter was the stand out in this book. She is so smart for her age and has a God given artistic talent that helps Aaron to solve a mystery. Lydia however just wishes Aaron would go away and leave things the way they were before he came - until she starts to see that he really does have what's best for his late Uncle's cabins in mind - not to mention her heart. Lydia and Aaron have a long way to go before matters of the heart can even be discussed but they are getting there - slowly.

This is an easy read with a twist in the middle you won't see coming that makes you keep turning pages. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!

I enjoyed this book, and loved that it continued from where we left off in the first book A Promise For Miriam. Now you do not need to read the first book to enjoy this one, but you will miss out on a great book.
We begin this story when a young Amish Farmer, Aaron Troyer, has been sent to Wisconsin to help out his Uncle's Widow and family. His Uncle ran a business of offering nightly lodging in cottages.
When he arrives at the Pebble Creek Cottages, he is devastated at the mess he is going to have to fix some how. His Uncle's one employee, Lydia Fisher, is there to meet him. He takes his disappointment out on her. Now how could one young Amish Woman have fixed all that needed to be done here?
We rejoin the family of Miriam, Gabe and Hannah, who have now been joined by baby Rachael. What fun to be able to spend time with them again, and not just to say hello...we continue with their lives and trails!
This story has some romance, some family health issues, and a mystery thrown in. We find that at some point Amish and English have the same tough teenage years!
Come and enjoy your time In Pebble Creek WI, you won't be disappointed!

I received this book through First Wild Card Blog Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
