About the Book

Book: Two Suitors for Anna

Author: Molly Jebber
Genre: Amish Historical Romance
Release Date: January 31, 2017

In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for and a new, very different future…

Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm, the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to share…

My Review:

Two Suitors for Anna by Molly Jebber is of a slower pace than the books I have been reading of late.  That is a good thing as sometimes I need to sit back and take a breather.  Here in this story we have Anna, eldest daughter and a very close to her widowed Mother and two sisters.   Anna and Noah have an understanding and both love and want to marry each other.  However, something has happened and Anna cannot quite measure up to Noah’s exacting standards of late.  Noah and Anna also have very different goals for their lives.  Noah wants to leave and for Anna to come with him. Not knowing what else to do and not wanting to leave her home or her family, Anna and Noah separate and Noah goes off on his own.

There were definite warning signs in their relationship, and I am glad to have seen that Anna was a mature enough character not to just marry blindly for loving feelings.  I felt for Anna, because as in real life, we are going along and expect certain things/dreams to line up and when they don’t there is a real grief that comes that we must work through.

In the meantime there is another gentleman who has just moved to Berlin and has set his eyes, hopes, and dreams on Anna.  As Daniel pursues Anna, she realizes that her heart may just heal from Noah.  However, Noah returns remorseful and asking for forgiveness from her for leaving and wants her to take him back.  What is a girl to do as there is something powerful in first love?  But which one is true love?

The author does not give her characters an easy road.  They do experience their fair share of troubles brought on by the outside world and their own sinful regrets.  This was a refreshing read with a slower pace of life. 

I received a copy of this book for free.  I was not required to give a positive review and the opinions and views expressed are my own.

What prompted Two Suitors for Anna?
Have you had to choose between two men you love? Or maybe a friend?  I gave Anna this dilemma and added to her turmoil by throwing in a bundle of twists and turns to the story.
Noah proposes to Anna, and he takes her rejection as hesitation and leaves town. Daniel moves to Berlin and offers her friendship which is blossoming into something more, when Noah returns and asks her forgiveness and another chance. I hope you enjoy it!
