An Angel by Her Side book review!

About the Book:
Please note that this is Book 3 in the A Heaven on Earth series

Katie has lived through tragedy and heartache. But with the angel Elias by her side, the best years of her life are just ahead.

When Katie Bender’s fiancé died in a tragic accident, so did her hope of finding love. Though heartbroken, Katie is also practical. In the years since the accident she has discovered her gift for teaching. But when a tornado destroys her small Amish settlement, including the schoolhouse, Katie doesn’t know how she will provide for herself.

Seth Stutzman arrived in Hope Falls days before the storm. And when he helps usher Katie and the children to safety, sparks fly. But Seth is only in town to help his brother, Amos, get back on his feet following the death of his wife. He can’t afford to have feelings for Katie.

Rebuilding the community is a huge task, and soon, Katie and Seth are working side by side. As they privately wrestle with their feelings for each other, another silent—and ultimate—battle for their hearts rages unseen.

Sworn to protect what God has ordained, the mighty angel Elias appears to them as a mysterious visitor. And with his guidance, Katie and Seth find the courage to take the first small steps toward the life, and love, they were destined

My Review:
Amish Love stories are great to read. They are uplifting and they make me realize that even in the face of tragedy love can prevail. Love conquers all! This book had a great love story between Seth and Katie. I have previously read another book in the series and I was waiting for Katie's turn. The Bender family is great, and by the end of this book I was hoping that the author was not done with them. I wanted to read of the awesome family dynamics.
This series is different from other Amish stories because each book has a paranormal aspect to it. This book had angels and demons. Whether or not I are a believer, I definitely got the metaphor of good versus evil that is a battle raging in each of us.
I also think that is is wonderful that the author includes disabilities in her characters. In this book a character has dyslexia. The best part was the way the author wrote in the disability as an ailment like a cold, rather than make the disability overcome the character. Living with a disability, it is important to me when authors deal with disabilities is a respectful manor. Even as the author describes how hard it is for their character to live with a disability.
I completely loved this book, the author and the plot. The characters were also fun to read about. I am giving this book a 5/5 ! I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own!
