The young Amish baker has always wanted a familye of her own and now that she’s fostered Grace for nearly a year, her adoption application is almost certain to be approved. But an unexpected visitor to Hope’s Haven could change everything…

Englischer paramedic Mike Colder is only returning to his childhood hometown to locate and adopt his late sister’s baby. But when the trail leads to Hannah and Grace, Mike’s determination falters. With Hannah, the simple life he left behind suddenly seems appealing. Despite their wildly different worlds, can Mike and Hannah give each other—and Grace—the greatest gift of all: a life together?

My Thoughts

Her Amish Springtime Miracle by Winnie Griggs is the second book in the Hope’s Haven series.  This is a sweet story.  I thought Her Amish Springtime Miracle was well-written with realistic, developed characters. The story moves along at a good pace.   I enjoyed getting to know Mike, Hannah, Leah, and Grace.  The community is filled with warm, caring people who are there for each other.  I like how Leah helps Hannah with Grace and baking dilemma.   I enjoyed catching up with the characters from Her Amish Wedding QuiltHer Amish Springtime Miracle is a story about family ties and dynamics.  The Christian elements are well-done and beautifully woven into the story.  God’s plans are always better than our own and prayer is a powerful tool.    Her Amish Springtime Miracle can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend reading Her Amish Wedding Quilt.  Hannah’s baking will have your mouth watering.  She bakes up delectable cookies, cupcakes, and Mike’s favorite, whoopie pies for her bakery in the marketplace.  I enjoyed the descriptions of Hannah’s special place.  The author’s word imagery really brought the place alive for me.  Her Amish Springtime Miracle is a heartwarming tale that was over far too soon.  I look forward to my next visit to Hope’s Haven.  Her Amish Springtime Miracle is a sweet story with tasty treats, a beloved baby, a special search, an unexpected encounter, a new awareness, and a caring community.


While he waited, his attention turned to a new customer entering the diner, a young Amish woman with rosy cheeks and bright, curious eyes. Something about her caught and held his attention.

As she moved to the counter, her gaze casually scanned the room. When it connected with his, her steps faltered for just a second.

Mike had heard others talk about the instant connection they felt when exchanging glances with someone for the first time, but he’d always scoffed at such notions. Real connections were based on getting to know the other person, not in fleeting looks.

But for the first time he knew what they meant.

And by the way her eyes widened ever so slightly, he could tell she felt something too.
