Courting an Amish Bishop by Mindy Steele

 Courting an Amish Bishop
Book Summary

No One Is Ever Too Old to Love Again

Full of faith, hope, and romance, this new series takes you into the Heart of Amish country.

Simon Graber became a widower and a bishop early in life. His focus is solely on his very close-knit Old Order Amish community—not entertaining the idea of marriage, despite what many of the elders think. When sickness comes to Cherry Grove, Kentucky, Simon reaches out into the next community for help. But help is beginning to look a lot like a second chance when Stella Schmucker agrees to offer her vast herbal knowledge to the sick. Can it be that these two, who have been too busy serving others to entertain the idea of love, have met at just the perfect time for an unlikely courtship?

My Thoughts

Courting an Amish Bishop by Mindy Steele is a sweet story.  My attention was captured right away.  I enjoyed getting to know Stella Schmucker and Bishop Simon Graber.  Bishop Graber’s son, Michael added humor to the story.  It was interesting learning about the various herbs and their uses.  I can tell that the author did her research.  Those struck down with this virulent strain of flu in Cherry Grove, Kentucky certainly needed Stella and her knowledge.  I liked the fact that Stella and Simon were middle-aged (instead of a man and woman in their early twenties).       There are life and faith lessons throughout the story. Courting an Amish Bishop is the fourth book in The Heart of the Amish series, but it can be read as a standalone.  This was an enjoyable story to read.  Courting an Amish Bishop is a heartwarming Amish tale with benevolent bishop, a pervasive sickness, healing herbs, a cliffside house, a nasty storm, and a close-knit community.

Courting an Amish Bishop is availabe from Amazon*.  The next book in The Heart of the Amish series is Mary's Calico Hope by Anne Blackburne which comes out May 15, 2024.  You can find the other novels in The Heart of the Amish series here.  Thank you for joining me today.  I will sharing my thoughts on A Book Club's Guide to Murder and Mayhem by Bethany Barker tomorrow.  I hope that you have idyllic day.  Take care and Happy Reading.
