Об этой аудиокниге

An unlikely Amish couple enters a modern-day marriage of convenience.

Follow the heart-wrenching story of Adam Beachy, whose mother walked out on him and his family – and away fro the Amish faith. Now he balks at the idea of ever marrying and having a family of his own. But when tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his three nieces and finds himself needing a wife.

Despite their differences over her practice of reflexology, Leah Mast seems the best option to fill that role. Can they make it work in a modern-day marriage of convenience?

    This novel continues the saga of Leah Mast and Adam Beachy. Adam has become a rather bitter young man who has difficulty getting along socially. Leah practices reflexology and is able to help many people who have a variety of ailments. The story continues to follow Jonah Miller and Elaine Strock as they continue on their parallel journeys. The story keeps the story moving at a nice pace and provides insight into Amish life. I enjoyed it very much. I read all three books in this trilogy and enjoyed each one of them.

    An Awesome Story With Love, Forgiveness, acceptance, and tolerance for others. The Gift by Wanda F. Brunstetter is the second book in the Prairie State Friend series, (The Decision is #1) , but is also a great stand-alone book. I didn't read the first book in the series and had no problem with following along in this one. Although now I want to go back and read The Decision. I learned a few things about Leah's passions, hummingbirds and reflexology. Was interesting to read and learn about. Leah decides to take Adam up on his proposal of marriage to help him raise his 3 nieces, even though it will be a marriage in name only or will it?The Gift is an awesome story with love, forgiveness,acceptance, and tolerance for others. The end of the book left me wanting more! Will Adam forgive Cora? Or will Cora and Jared move back to Chicago? Will Adam and Leah have a baby of their own to add to their family? I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series to see how these characters stories play out.I received an ARC from Barbour Publishing and NetGallery in exchange for my honest review

    A tragedy leaves Adam to raise his three young nieces. Leah steps in watch the children while Adam is at work. Though they have only begun to be friends, their shared love for the children leads them to take a step toward a new life together. Adam is still dealing with the disappointments of his own childhood, which are brought to the forefront with the arrival of a stranger in town. This story is quite complex in structure. It deals with human fragility, suffering, grudges, struggles, and more. The characters are real; readers will feel their pain. The second in the trilogy, the novel ends but the story does not. This well-written tale will have readers reaching for the finale novel in the series post-haste.

    This story can stand alone in this series, but it does pick up where book one ended and has all the same characters in this book as the last one. This story is about Leah Mast and how her desire for a family is met in a most unusual way. Adam Beachy ends up with his three little nieces and needs help. Leah goes from watching them during the day, to agreeing to a marriage of convenience with Adam. Adam has some issues to work out regarding his past and together these two will make the marriage of convenience work and turn into one of love.

    it was perfect right up to the end. And then I was disappointed. I don't like to be left hanging in a book. It definitely had a few more chapters to go. Maybe there's a part 2 I'm not noticing.

    Fantastic! This is the second book in the Prairie State Friends series. This seemed to stand alone but I recommend reading the first in the series because Wanda E. Brunstetter books are always wonderful. I have never read one of hers that I didn't like. This one has Leah Mast who has a gift of healing using reflexology and Adam Beachy who wants nothing to do with reflexology because of something that happened in his childhood. They meet because Adam has a tragedy and his sister and husband die and he is left to raise their children. Leah helps him to care for them. This book has a great bit of romance and just a hint of what will happen next. I really recommend this series. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion.

    The Gift a book by Wanda E. Brunstetter is the second in the series of Prairie State Friends. The story of Leah Mast, who has a special gift of healing, specifically reflexology, treating people ailments by putting pressure on the foot of her ailing patient. Adam Beachy is one of many in her community who thinks reflexology is harmful and should not be practiced. When a tragedy strikes, Adam must humbly turn to Leah to see if she will become his wife. Needing help to raise his nieces Leah thinks she can still practice reflexology, but Adam is totally against it. Putting aside her pride Leah decides to marry Adam and the remainder of the book shows the conflict between them as they grow in love and understand as a couple. Wanda E. Brunstetter radiantly incorporate the Christian faith through the lives of her characters in the Amish community. I continue to adore the books by Wanda and once again this book did not disappoint. I am anxiously waiting for the third book in the series to come out because I know Wanda will not fail in bringing another fantastic installment of her series.
