Charlotte Hubbard celebrates Motherhood with a timely Amish novel entitled A Mother’s Gift (Kensington Inspirational Romance). I heartily recommend this book for Mothers, Grandmothers, Moms-to-Be, Step-Mothers, or anyone who has a Mother! There are lessons to be learned for all within its pages, plus a healthy dose of romance.
The novel begins with 28-year-old Leah and her mother Lenore talking the night before Leah’s wedding to Jude, a widower with three children, twin 16-year-old daughters and a 5-year-old son. Lenore is concerned that Leah has no idea how difficult it will be to handle this new household. Leah, although Amish, is not your typical Amish young lady. She has spent much of her time working with livestock and not learning the fine arts of cooking, cleaning, sewing, and child raising.
Indeed, Leah does find that she has bit off more than she can handle. Leah is three months into a marriage and miserable. Being a step-mom is her worst nightmare plus the women in the new Amish district don’t seem to like her. The only bright spot in Leah’s life is her husband, Jude, who is one romantic man.
You will need to read this novel to discover how the situation resolves but let me assure you, it is quite an interesting story, filled with twists and turns. A Mother’s Gift will be available March 27, 2018. Thank you Charlotte for another beautifully written novel.
