Review: A Promise of Hope

A Promise of Hope by Amy Clipston is the second book in the Kauffman Amish Bakery series.  This book focuses on Sarah whose husband dies in a fire at the end of the third book. Sarah is expecting the couple's first baby.  She decides that while she is grieving she will go and live with her parents so she can have the help and support she needs as she is pregnant and raising her new baby.  Things seem to be going well, until a stranger, Luke, shows up and claim to be a relative.  He tells her things about her husband that she never knew, deep dark secrets.  Sarah must learn to forgive her dead husband for all the things he lied to her about while they were married.  She talks a lot with Norman who really seems to understand her since he recently lost his wife.  Sarah also begins to enjoy spending time with Luke until she finds out maybe he was not so truthful with her either.  Who will she choose to spend the rest of her life with? Norman or Luke?  I really enjoyed the setting of the Amish Bakery and how all the women in the family worked together to make it a success.  I also fell in love with the characters and the problems in their lives and how they were able to solve them all.  I really liked how they relied on verses from the Bible to help guide them in their lives too.  The book, like the first in the series also had a lot of Amish recipes scattered throughout the book.  I am really looking forward to the next one in this series.
