    I am so intrigued by the Amish - I don't understand so much of their belief system, and why they choose to live the way they do. Fortunately, there are several authors who write fantastic stories that incorporate explanation into their work, so learning about this often mysterious religious community is easy and enjoyable. Amy Clipston is at the top of that list.

    I love Amy's books.

    I enjoyed a lot of things about this book but just a few things to get
    past. The speed of following in love just isn't realistic, I know this is a book
    of fiction but still.
    I enjoy the building relationship between Hannah and Trey, it just needed to
    not be so rushed. Enjoyed Amanda and Mike,looking forward to seeing where that
    goes I the next book.

    Have you ever wanted to line up most of the characters in a book and then backhand them as you walk down the row? I became so exasperated with most of the characters that I wanted to do just that, several times! But again, I wanted to tell them that I understood how they felt. The book left me feeling torn and emotional. I didn't want to put it down. I found myself in bed trying to reason with the characters. I knew they were not real people but still.......a fantastic read that left me breathless at times.

    A Hopeful Heart by Amy Clipston is a wonderful Amish story with a different twist than most Amish novels. Hannah Glick has been widowed for four years and has sixteen year old twin daughters and a six year old son. She works as a housekeeper at the local hotel and in an embarrassing situation, she meets Trey Peterson a wealthy businessman who lost his wife and daughter a year earlier. Her brother-in-law, Joshua, has loved Hannah since they were children and the desire of his heart is to become her husband and a father to her children. As Hannah and Trey continue to see each other regularly at the hotel they realize that they are beginning to feel more than just friendship for each other. Hannah has been Amish all her life and loves her community and family but she has always had dreams that can be fulfilled if she decides to leave the Amish community and marry an Englisher. Rumors about Hannah and Trey fly through the Amish community and Hannah must decide if she wants to remain Amish which would require that she kneel and repent before the entire church or if she wants to leave the faith and marry Trey.Characters were so well developed that they became alive on the pages of the book and I felt as if I knew every one of them personally and that they were my friends. The plot line had a surprise or two that kept me guessing if Hannah would remain Amish or marry Trey. The author’s description of the farms with their houses, barns, animals, and buggies were so expertly done that I could clearly picture each one as I read about it.The emotions of the main characters were so real that I was crying or laughing right along with them and I wanted to give the mother-in-law a good shaking. I really like the way that the author included Dietsch words throughout the story for in my opinion they add authenticity to the story. I really liked that this story was somewhat different than all the other Amish stories that I have read. Usually the problems happen to the community as a whole or to one of the characters but in this book the main character has to decide if she will stay in the Amish community or if she will marry an Englisher. I am sure there are other Amish books that deal with that problem but so far this is the first one I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great Amish story.I received a complimentary copy of this book from Zondervan as a part of the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    A Hopeful Heart (Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel)Amy ClipstonBook Description: In A Hopeful Heart, the first novel of the new Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series from best-selling author Amy Clipston, Hannah finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Her community offers her love and support after the untimely death of her husband, but an Englisher offers her the chance of a new life after her unexpected tragedy. Wealthy businessman Trey Peterson is surprised by his attraction to the gentle Amish woman who works as a housekeeper in the Lancaster Grand Hotel. They share a common bond of loss and are able to offer each other comfort and support as they journey through their grief. Joshua Glick wants nothing more than to offer his friendship and love to Hannah and her family. Not only is he her late husband’s brother and business partner, he has always been in love with Hannah. A Hopeful Heart is filled with surprising twists as Hannah tries to balance her life in the Amish community and her growing love for an outsider.Review: I loved the majority of this book. I liked the characters and the setting. The story line was sad at the start. Yet the book was not gloomy overall. I did find it difficult to believe that leaving the Amish life could be so easily resolved and that it would be harder than anyone could imagine. I believed the way Hannah’s mother-in-law treated her especially when Hannah was friendly with an Engilsher. I found much of the book to be realistic. In my own personal opinion I think that Hannah was a selfish about pursuing her own desires since the Amish are raised to be community minded. I felt very mixed by the end of the book and that is really where I still am. I would like to thank Book Sneeze and Zondervan Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
