Travel back to 1914 to Charm,
Ohio where Magdelena Beachy is hoping that Toby Schlabach will soon ask to court
her. Toby’s father is severely ill so that
leaves Toby responsible for providing for his mother, father, and sister. Toby works on the family farm plus makes beautifully
crafted furniture that sells at Andrew’s shop in town. Toby is intimidated by Mark Beachy’s
wealth. He wants to make sure he has
enough saved up for land and a house before asking permission to court
Magdelena. Just when Toby is ready to
approach Magdelena’s father, he learns that Mark has arranged a marriage for
Magdelena to a newcomer. Magdelena has
always obeyed her parents, but this is the one time she is not willing to acquiesce. Toby and Magdelena love each other. Magdelena needs to make a choice. Marry the man she loves and lose the family
she holds dear or marry a man she does not love which will make for an unhappy
Magdelena’s Choice by Molly Jebber is the fifth novel in the An Amish Charm Bakery series. Each book in An Amish Charm Bakery series can
be read as a standalone. If you read them
in order, it will allow you to become immersed in Charm and the lives of the
ladies who work at the bakery. I thought
Magdelena’s Choice contained good writing, and the story moved along at a
steady pace. I like the characters in
the story. I thought they were realistic,
and their attitudes suited the time period.
We get to meet Abram and Annie Hook who have just moved to Charm. Toby and Magdelena befriend the couple. We get to catch up with the characters from
the other four novels in the series. I
thought this was a clean, sweet Amish romance.
I was not a fan of the repetition.
Certain details are repeated over and over. I liked the issues raised in Magdelena’s Choice. Sometimes you need to be patient
and wait for God’s timing. In the
meantime, you must pray and continue to do good works. Charity Beachy was a delight. She is such a precocious child. She certainly knows who she wants to marry
when she is old enough. I thought
Charity and Peter were adorable together.
I like how people supported Magdelena and Toby. It can be hard to be obedient when you want
to follow your heart. The delicious
items at the bakery will have your mouth watering. You will find yourself craving whoopie pies
and snickerdoodles. Magdelena’s Choice
is a charming Amish tale with scrumptious pastries, a clever and crafty Charity,
an insistent suitor, a forceful father, compassionate mates, and a firm
