Brush of Angel’s Wings

In this second installment in the Heaven and Earth series, we are introduced to two new characters, Rachel Hartzler and Jordan Engles. Rachel is not your typical Amish girl. While all of her friends are becoming wives and mothers, Rachel would rather be in the field helping her father, a role she took over after her brother died. Rachel is horrible cook, and she can’t thread a needle. At the same time, Jordan Engles has returned to his Amish life, after his mother’s death. His mother had been shunned years before, and Jordan had promised to return to her roots. Rachel’s father hires Jordan to help on the farm so Rachel can learn housework. Naturally, sparks fly between Rachel and Jordan.
Just like the The Promise of an Angel, Brush of Angel’s Wings is not your typical Amish romance novel. The author has added a twist to the story. Throughout the story, Nathaniel, an angel of Good, is watching over Rachel and Jordan. He sees great potential for the two, and is determined to lead them on the path of love and healing. This supernatural twist helps move the over-used Amish romance plot along. Overall, I enjoyed reading book and recommend to other romance readers.
