Book Review - A Dream of Miracles by Ruth Reid

Thomas Nelson; 336 pages; Buy Link; Blog Tour
Reading a book is the perfect way to get your mind off life's many problems. I had a terrible week, which I won't go into details here, but everything that occurred in my life led me to delay in writing a few post, including this review.

It's no secret that I like reading a good Amish romance, so it should come to no surprise why I wanted to read A Dream of Miracles (part of An Amish Wonders series) by Ruth Reid.

Right from the get-go, us (readers) are introduced to Mattie Diener, a young Amish widow and mother of three-year-old Nathan and eighteen-month Amanda, who finds herself once again in the emergency room. Her son has had signs of a serious illness since right after his birth. Unfortunately, their regular doctor is on vacation and they are forced to see a different doctor. The new doctor doesn't understands Mattie's situation and automatically believes that she is abusing Nathan, which leads to the doctor to call social services.

Now is this when Bo Lambright comes into the picture, the social service investigator who takes Nathan's case. While Bo might look like he has his life in working order, he actually has plenty of problems, including a melding mother and a shadowy past. Nevertheless, as Bo spends more time in the Amish world, the faster he starts to fall in love with Maddie.

Final Thoughts:  With so many Amish fiction writers on the market, the genre can become a little stale, but I'm glad that isn't the case with A Dream of Miracles as the author is no stranger to writing a good romance. The plot for this story is a believable, emotional drama that involves a young woman whom happens to the Amish. All the characters are wonderfully written and the great descriptions kept me turning the pages. Overall, I enjoyed reading A Dream of Miracles and I recommend it other readers.
