Love Comes To Paradise-Mary Ellis

Love Comes To Paradise

Mary Ellis

Harvest House, Feb 1 2013, $13.99

ISBN: 9780736938679

In Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, the inferno at the King family farm left their Maem and Daed dead. Following the funeral, two of the King children (Amy with her fiancé and Nora) moved to the much more rigid Amish community in Harmony, Maine (see Living In Harmony).

Nora meets and falls in love with Elam Detweiler. When he moves to Paradise, Missouri, she follows him. As she begins to appreciate the freedom and independence of the Englisher after being stifled by the strict rules of Harmony, Lewis Miller comes to Paradise to persuade Nora he loves her and wants her to return to Maine with him as his wife.

The Second King family New Beginnings Amish romance is an entertaining tale of faith in taking God’s path which leads to joy, harmony and eventually paradise even when one does not understand why bad things happened to good people we cherish and love. The cast is solid as Nora may have moved physically, her beliefs shaken by the tragedy; but Elam and Lewis represent diverse starting over opportunities.
