If you are looking for a sweet and sassy fun read in the Amish genre I have a great one for you to read, Love by the Numbers (Thomas Nelson, Inc.) written by Laura V. Hilton. What a wonderful romantic story Laura has crafted! She literally had me hooked from the first sentence, “He was gorgeous.”
In Love by the Numbers, Lydia and Caleb, two imperfect Amish twenty something year old’s, meet and each has a secret shameful past. Laura V. Hilton writing is realistic as she still remembers being young and infatuated with someone special. And that is what makes this novel so extraordinary and entertaining.
I love the skill Laura uses to seamlessly blend bible verses into her stories. One of the main themes in this book comes from 2 Corinthians 4:8-9, “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.” We need to believe that everything will be okay. Fortunately, our heavenly Father freely offers us grace and forgiveness.
Laura V. Hilton also writes with humor. I can’t count the number of times I laughed out loud while reading. This charming romance will be available February 6, 2018.
