Listening to Love by Beth Wiseman is book two in her An Amish Journey series, though it reads well as a standalone. I’m a fan of Beth Wiseman and was not disappointed with this novel.
Natalie Collins and Lucas Shetler are friends, but their friends and families don’t approve of their friendship because Natalie is an Englisher, non-Amish, and Lucas is Old Order Amish. Natalie and Lucas ignore all the warnings, because Lucas is teaching her about the Christian faith and they’re just friends. Besides, Lucas loves being Amish and could never leave his community for the outside world, and Natalie can’t give up the comfort of modern conveniences. Slowly, Natalie and Lucas start to realize that maybe their friends and families were right, but what can they do about it?
Listening to Love is another great work by a noted bestselling author of the Amish genre. The characters are endearing. The storyline and plot are engaging. I was entertained from start to finish. I rate this novel 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all readers of chaste romance, especially Amish romance. If you are adverse to religious themes, this is not the book for you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Zondervan through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
