Abraham by Jennifer Beckstrand is the second book in her Petersheim Brothers series. Abraham is the second eldest of the Petersheim brothers, fondly known as the Peanut Butter Brothers, so named because of the family business.
The youngest Petersheim brothers are nine-year-old twins, Alfie and Benji, who are totally “laugh out loud” hilarious. They’ve been forced to sleep in the cellar due to a lack of bedrooms, since their grandparents have moved in. Alfie and Benji plan to get their room back by getting their older brothers to marry and move out. They’ve successfully married off their eldest brother, Andrew, and are now working on a plan to link Abraham with local beauty, Emma Wengerd. The twins have their work cut out for them, trying to match quiet, socially awkward Abraham with outgoing, always wants to be the center of attention, Emma.
Abraham is a quick, easy, really good read. Ms. Beckstrand has given more insight into the featured brother, Abraham, who is much different from his brother, Andrew, who was featured in book one. The cast of characters are well-developed and completely relatable. The author gives adequate backstory from book one. As with book one, the writing flows smoothly, and there’s just the right amount of conflict. This is another 5 out of 5 stars endeavor from Jennifer Beckstrand. I recommend this book to all readers of Amish fiction, especially Amish romance.
My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
