Listening to Love by #BethWiseman #Netgalley #Book #Review

Synopsis:
He’s Amish. She’s Englisch. They are best friends, despite what the gossips say. But could the rumor mill know more than they do?

Englischer Natalie Collins looks forward to Friday night suppers at Levi and Mary Shetler’s house every week: delicious food, wonderful conversation with her Amish friends, and, best of all, the presence of Levi’s older brother Lucas. Natalie and Lucas have become best friends despite their different backgrounds. They share a love of books, and he is teaching her about God in a way that she can understand.

But the closer they become, the more opinions everyone seems to have. Levi and Mary, Lucas’s family, and even Natalie’s mother—whose own life is a mess at the moment—have concerns about their relationship. Why can’t everyone understand that it’s possible to just be friends? Besides, they couldn’t be together even if they wanted to be. Lucas would never leave the Amish faith, and Natalie is Englisch and pursuing a degree in veterinary medicine.

But when a terrifying accident happens, Natalie and Lucas are forced to confront their true feelings and decide if they can stay true to themselves and each other. 

The second novel in the Amish Journeys series by bestselling author Beth Wiseman explores the compromises and sacrifices it takes to truly listen to love.

My Review:
Natalie Collins has spent her entire life growing up in Amish country.  She became fast friends with Levi and Mary Shetler and began having dinner with them on Friday nights.  To her surprise, Lucas, Levi's handsome brother begins joining them.  What started off as an innocent love of books, and Lucas increasing Natalie's faith in God, quickly turns into something neither on saw coming.

This was a great love story and lesson in trusting God guide your life even if it doesn't make sense.  I enjoyed this novel, I was moved by the faith they had and learned quite a bit about trusting that God has total control of one's life.
👍👍👍👍👍
