About the Book

A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance to discover love's true way home…

Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith's strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She's never been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt's wealthy mother is determined her son will marry a society woman.

With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances. .

My Thoughts

Change of Heart is a sweet Amish novel.  I found it enjoyable to read and a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. I liked the premise of Change of Heart.  Becca Yost needs a change of venue after being stood up at the altar.  She decides to visit her sister, Ruth in Massillon where she meets Dr. Matt Carrington.  He is need of a nurse as his office assistant has an aversion to blood.  When Matt hears that Becca is a midwife, he asks if she will work with him.  As time passes, the pair fall in love, but there are obstacles in the path to their happily-ever-after.  Matt and Becca are kind, caring sympathetic characters while Matt’s mother is an overbearing, manipulative woman (hard to believe Matt is her son).  I enjoy the pocket quilt theme.  It is a such a lovely and thoughtful idea.  My one complaint is that I felt that the dialogue was awkward and choppy.  Change of Heart is an emotional and refreshing story. I look forward to reading the other books in The Keepsake Pocket Quilt series
Change of Heart is available from Amazon*.  The other novels in A Keepsake Pocket Quilt series are Grace's Forgiveness and Two Suitors for Anna.  Thank you for joining me today.  Tomorrow I am featuring Silent Shadows by Natalie Walters.  I hope you have a positive day.  Take care and Happy Reading!
