Lorie's Heart

A Wells Landing Romance, #3

Since I am a fan of Amish fiction, I was glad to review “Lorie’s Heart” by Amy Lillard. Most Amish-themed books I have read glorify the ideals and beliefs of the Amish community. The simple way of life, the shunning of all worldly inventions and progress are presented as a way of life that embraces the will of God. There are many rules and expectations concerning this way of life and I’m sure many of us could not live with these constraints. Lorie Kauffman’s father has been killed in an accident. What follows is the revelation that all is not what it seemed for Henry Kauffman. He has been living two lives and Lorie’s pursuit of the truth leads her to question everything she has known. I really liked this book and would recommend it highly.

Book Blurb for Lorie's Heart

Welcome back to Wells Landing, Oklahoma, the tranquil Amish community where still waters run deep and a brave young woman sets out to discover her faith, her family, and herself…

Lorie Kauffman is grief-stricken when her father passes away unexpectedly. But her heartache quickly turns to bewilderment when she discovers he’d been leading two lives—one of simplicity and hard work in Wells Landing, and one fraught with painful ordeals in Tulsa. As she starts digging into her family’s past, Lorie finds herself torn between the Amish world and the Englisch world—and she’s no longer certain where she belongs…

Lorie knows that if she leaves Wells Landing, she may never be able to return. But what if her destiny lies in the outside world—the world her father knew so well? Change is never easy, but with a bit of courage and the help of a handsome and kind-hearted Englischer, she just may find the peace, acceptance, and love she’s been longing for…
