Courting the Amish Widow by Rachel Yoder-May

I received a copy of this book from Librarything for an honest review

Esther is a sweet loving person who has been a widow for years. She teaches the children in the small town and lives a simple life. One day there is a loud knock on the schoolhouse door that will change the course of Esther's  life forever. She learns that one of her dear friends has  been killed in an accident and now she must break the sad news to the children. She knew it would be hard on them since they had recently lost their father.

She decides to take the children home with her until arrangements can be made for permanent care of the children. Esther has always longed for children , and maybe God has answered her prayers. The story takes a twist when a stranger shows up. Will this stranger make trouble for Esther? The story is very short but filled with a sweet storyline. I loved how the author gives Esther the choice to follow her heart and trust God in her decision.

For a quick and uplifting read  this is sure to please fans of Amish stories.
