Rebecaa's Amish Heart Restored by Tracy Fredrychowski

 Rebecca's Amish Heart Restored
Book Summary

Lies and secrets surround a young woman's heart. Can this shame-filled believer salvage her life and find true happiness?

Rebecca Byler is struggling with the truth. While this young Amish woman is determined to push everyone away, Eli Bricker is set on discovering the pain that holds her captive. When Rebecca finds little reassurance from her Old Order's strict ways, she's drawn to Eli's ailing grandmother, Mary, and a letter from her deceased mother.

Still blaming herself for a series of tragedies, Rebecca plans to leave Willow Springs in hopes of saving Eli from God's wrath. But Mary sets a plan in motion to share the love of Jesus with Rebecca and force her hand in marriage to keep both Eli and her from giving up on love.

Can this sharp tongued woman find the courage to face her past and seek forgiveness from the Almighty?

Rebecca's Amish Heart Restored is the inspirational second book in The Amish Women of Lawrence County series of women's fiction novels. If you like spiritual explorations, real-life challenges of emotional bravery, and basking in God's light, then you'll adore Tracy Fredrychowski's exploration of hope.

My Thoughts

Rebecca’s Amish Heart Restored by Tracy Fredrychowski is a story about how God can take a person’s troubled heart and transform it into a loving one with help from the right people.  Rebecca pushes those who love her away with her caustic comments. Her father and new stepmother are at their wits end.  They are also worried about Rebecca’s twin, Anna, who lives in Rebecca’s shadow.  Anna goes out of her way to avoid people, especially at the twin’s fiber shop.  Mary Bricker needs help after a recent medical setback.  Taking care of Mary is the last thing Rebecca wishes to do, especially since she would have to see Eli, her ex-beau, every day.  Her father, though, is adamant.  Mary wants to help Rebecca during the time she has left.  She knows what it is like to live with a secret.  Secrets have a way of eating at your soul.  Mary wants to help Rebecca find God who will be able to give her forgiveness and help Rebecca forge a new path.  Mary hopes she has enough time left to accomplish her task.  If not, Mary has an alternate plan, but she knows it will cause an uproar in the lives of two people close to her.  I thought Rebecca’s Amish Heart Restored was well-written with realistic, developed characters.  I liked hearing about the natural dyes the twins used on their alpaca fibers.  Their shop is a place I would love to visit.  I know I would not do well in this Amish community where men rule the roost and the community.  It would be impossible to be an individual (unique) in a community where sameness (like all their clothing looking alike) is the norm. Rebecca’s Amish Heart Restored is a story that will resonate with many people.  My favorite phrase from Rebecca’s Amish Heart Restored is, “The truth shall set you free.”  Faith is a big element in this book.  We learn the importance of accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and asking his forgiveness.  While Rebecca’s Amish Heart Restored is the second novel in The Amish Women of Lancaster County series, it can be read as a standalone.  I do, though, want to go back and read Emma’s Amish Faith Tested.  I am looking forward to reading Anna’s Amish Fear Revealed when it comes out in late summer.  Rebecca’s Amish Heart Restored is a tender Amish tale with Rebecca’s acerbic tongue, Eli’s gentle heart, Mary’s mission, Anna’s bashfulness, and God’s gentle ways.  

Rebecca's Amish Heart Restored is available from Amazon*.  If you belong to Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free.  The other novel in The Amish Women of Lawrence County series is Emma's Amish Faith Tested (also on Kindle Unlimited).  The third book in the series is Anna's Amish Fear Revealed which publishes on August 23.  Follow Tracy Fredrychowski on Amazon to receive an email when she has a new book release.  Tracy is holding a Quiltside Chat tonight at 7 p.m. on Facebook.  Click here to join her.  There is also a giveaway on Goodreads for Rebecca's Amish Heart Restored (contest ends April 30). Thank you for visiting today.  I am featuring Summer at the Cape by RaeAnne Thayne tomorrow.  I hope that you have a rewarding day.  Take care of yourself and Happy Reading!
