Today I am reviewing Hannah’s Courtship. This is the eighth novel from the Hannah’s Daughters series by Emma Miller.
I have no idea if there will be others, but I would welcome more novels about Hannah’s daughters or other family members… even friends in their community.
(by the way Emma, I’d love to read about Irwin and Dorcas…)
This is what GoodReads has to say about Hannah’s Courtship:
Second Chance At Love…
Amish widow Hannah Yoder never intended to marry again. Yet when her friendship with veterinarian Albert Hartman begins to bloom into something more, Hannah wonders if perhaps she’s finally ready for a new love.
Albert waited his whole life to find the right woman, only to realize Hannah was there all along.
But there’s more than their friendship to consider. Albert is a Mennonite, born-and-bred, and Hannah cannot – will not – leave her Amish faith, not even for him.
Does Albert have the courage to give up his modern life for Hannah…and will Hannah have the courage to let him?
Hannah’s Daughters: Seeking love, family and faith in Amish country
Emma Miller is one of the best Amish authors today! So many authors are writing Amish stories based on the classics or even childhood fantasies that we grew up with, but Emma writes stories about everyday life in a large, wonderful Amish family.
The “Hannah’s Daughters” series begin with Ruth, the second daughter, in a family of seven daughters and their widowed mother. In the fifth novel, another daughter no one knew about shows up!
In this book, all of the daughters, except for Suzanna (the youngest and a “special” blessing), are married… leaving Hannah and Suzanna alone in their big house.
I cannot imagine Hannah leaving the Amish church and returning to the Mennonite faith… just to marry again, but if she begins a courtship with Albert, what else can she do?
Emma does a superb job of working in the previous lives as we get to know Hannah better in this story.
Honestly, you will enjoy this story much more if you take time to go back and ready the previous seven stories, but even if you decide to go ahead and read this one first, you will catch up quickly with the family… here is the complete list:
1. Courting Ruth
2. Miriam’s Heart
3. Anna’s Gift
4. Leah’s Choice
5. Redeeming Grace
6. Johanna’s Bridegroom
7. Rebecca’s Christmas Gift
8. Hannah’s Courtship
Hannah’s Daughters by Emma Miller, published under Love Inspired.
