Review - An Angel by Her Side

An Angel by Her Side
By Ruth Reid
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 978-1595547903
Pub. Date: January 1, 2013


The third novel in A Heaven on Earth series centers on an Amish woman Katie Bender who lost hope of getting married when her fiancé died in a sudden accident. Through the grieving process she found that she loved teaching and has spent the last few years teaching the kids at a local schoolhouse, which is until her Amish community of Hope Falls is hit with a tornado. Out of nowhere, Seth Sutzman, rushes to save Katie and her students before the storm hit.

Seth had recently returned to Hope Falls to aid his brother, Amos, who had recently lost his wife. When he didn't expect was to fall in love with the schoolteacher Katie Bender. He volunteers to help rebuild the community and of course the schoolhouse.

Katie is instantly attracted to him, but she fears of letting anyone near her heart again. Mysteriously, the angel Elias comes down from heaven in a mission to help guide Katie and Amos.

I have read many Amish fiction novels over the years and A Heaven on Earth has been a unique series, as it as has a bit of supernatural (in a good way) by adding angels into the plots that help guide the characters. Once again, Ruth Reid has created likeable characters, which are going through a tough time - the loss of loved ones and a tornado disaster. I have read The Promise of An Angel and Rush of Angel Wings, and I think An Angel by Her Side is the best out of the series. The author does a wonderful job of keeping the reader glued to pages as I read through the book in one sitting.

Note: I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
