Описание

As the sole survivor of a buggy accident that left her orphaned at age four, Linda Zook was reluctantly raised by her Uncle Reuben. She longs to be worthy of someone, but the lasting trauma of her injuries and embittered upbringing have destroyed her self-worth. When Hannah Peterson asks her to work at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast, she's finally able to realize some confidence.

Aaron Ebersol left the Amish community seventeen years ago when he could no longer bear the restrictions or the constant tension with his father. Despite years of unanswered letters to his parents and the roots he's put down in Missouri, Aaron rushes back to the Amish community of Paradise, Pennsylvania, after receiving word of his mother's stroke. Hesitant to get too close to the family he was once a part of, he decides to stay at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast. Talking with Linda allows him to explore his feelings about his family and his position in the Amish community.

As Linda and Aaron open up to each other, their feelings for one another turn into more than friendship, and Aaron must make a decision about his future as an Amish man.

Can Linda and Aaron forgive the family members who have deceived and forsaken them? And will Aaron be able to convince Linda that she is worthy of his love?

    fantastic series - I always wish that her series would never end.

    Fantastic book. Very emotional. The author puts the reader right in the middle of the action. The Prodigal Son is home. Again, as with the other books in this series, I was pulled into the book and held captive there until the very end.

    I really enjoyed this book! The thought of love & forgiveness that is given is a wonderful example for us all.

    A Simple Prayer by Amy Clipston is a wonderful, heartfelt Amish romance. It is the fourth book in the Hearts of Lancaster Grand Hotel series. It is an appealing story that I did not want to end. Ruth Ebersol, who works at the Lancaster Grand Hotel, has had a stroke. The only thing she wants is to see her son Aaron. Aaron left the community over seventeen years ago and Ruth has not heard from him in all that time. Linda Zook works part-time at the hotel as well as working at Hannah and Trey’s Heart of Paradise Bed and Breakfast (helping out during Hannah’s pregnancy). Linda’s parents died in a buggy accident when she was four years old. Linda was the sole survivor of the accident, but she did suffer some injuries. Linda’s Uncle Reuben has reluctantly raised her in the cottage behind her parent’s home. Rueben has been unhappy and resentful for as long as Linda has known him. Her uncle’s attitude and the injuries from the accident have affected Linda and how she sees herself.Aaron returns to the community to see his mother (as well as the rest of his family). He stays at the Heart of Paradise B & B. While reconnecting with his family, Aaron works on fixing up his family’s home. He also makes it more accessible for his mother by adding ramps (at the front and back of the house) as well as making the master bathroom wheelchair accessible. Aaron has been writing to his mother for years and he wants to find out what happened to his letters. Aaron also gets to know Linda and he helps her see what a wonderful person she really is and that she is worthy of loving and being loved. I enjoyed it very much and did not want the story to end. I have enjoyed getting to read about Paradise and its residents. I am going to miss this series very much. A Simple Prayer wraps up all the story lines from the books and leaves the reader very satisfied (just sad that it has ended). I give A Simple Prayer 5 out of 5 stars. A Simple Prayer is a story that will warm the cockles of your heart!I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Resentment, no forgiveness, and yet Amish, and not living your religion, this is how Samuel Ebersol has been living his life. He probably isn’t alone, but we meet him head on in this story, and how he has sabotaged his only brother.Being head strong, and living a wild life as a teenage Amish boy, Aaron felt he had finally broken the camels back when he burned down the bishop’s barn. He was only fifteen when he left all that he knew, his faith, family and community.Linda Zook, was orphaned young, when she is taken to live with her Aunt and Uncle, injured and lonely. She is now grown and taking care of her widowed Uncle, who has not been kind to her, and verbally abused her during her life.What will this two hurt souls have in common when Aaron is called home because he mother has had a stroke. Fate has put these two hurting people together, will they both come tumbling down or will they heal off each other?I enjoyed this story, and being caught up with the lives of characters in past books was wonderful. We put endings to so many stories here, and I really didn’t want to leave.This story has a big theme of forgiveness, both to others and to oneself, and all within living ones faith. It took a long time, but God has worked in these peoples lives, and we hope for the best for all.I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
