By Amy Clipston

Book Description

In A Hopeful Heart, the first novel of the new Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series from best-selling author Amy Clipston, Hannah finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Her community offers her love and support after the untimely death of her husband, but an Englisher offers her the chance of a new life after her unexpected tragedy. Wealthy businessman Trey Peterson is surprised by his attraction to the gentle Amish woman who works as a housekeeper in the Lancaster Grand Hotel. They share a common bond of loss and are able to offer each other comfort and support as they journey through their grief.
Joshua Glick wants nothing more than to offer his friendship and love to Hannah and her family. Not only is he her late husband’s brother and business partner, he has always been in love with Hannah.
A Hopeful Heart is filled with surprising twists as Hannah tries to balance her life in the Amish community and her growing love for an outsider.
My Review:
This book surprised me. Usually Amish widows have to remarry to stay financially stable, and usually within their own. I also thought that a hotel was a weird place for an Amish woman to work. I didn't like the speed in which Hannah falls in love, and is willing to give up everything in her past. However why shouldn't she be happy? The love triangle was also interesting. I really wanted to find out who she picked, and if she decided to keep her faith. I thought that they grief was still to fresh to remarry, however she had to make a choice. I liked the ending and I can not wait to read the rest of the series. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review from Booksneeze, however all opinions are my own.
