Upon a Spring Breeze {An Every Amish Season Novel} by Kelly Irvin

Little description:

After a devastating winter, a spring breeze promises more than new flowers.… It promises a new chance at love.

Bess Weaver, twenty and expecting her first child, is in the kitchen making stew for her beloved mann, Caleb, one minute, and the next she’s burying him after a tragic accident. Facing life as a young widow, Bess finds comfort only in tending the garden at an Englisch-owned bed and breakfast—even as she doubts that new growth could ever come after such a long winter.

Aidan tries to repress his guilt over his best friend Caleb’s death and his long-standing feelings for Bess by working harder than ever. But as he spends time with the young son his friend left behind, he seems to be growing closer to the boy’s beautiful mother as well.

When a close-knit group of widows in her Amish community step in to help Bess find her way back to hope, she begins to wonder if Gott has a future for her after all. Will she ever believe that life can still hold joy and the possibility of love?

Genre: Christian Fiction/ Amish

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

Bess Weaver is a sorrowful, young Amish widow, who saw much pain and stress in her life. She tries with her heart to accept the way of the Lord, but she does not agree with the life anymore. With her late husband’s funeral and the birth of a baby Joseph who orphaned before he came to the worlds, she lost even her time with the little one, trying to provide her living through working for the Englishers… But the new suspicion and rumors circled around Bess, threatening to throw her out of community.

Now is the time to make a choice.  Either way she will never forget her Caleb. 

Will God ever bring the new flower blooms in her heart and will her spirit revive ever to the warmth of God’s promises to take care of her? Or will be she able to open her heart to new season in her life before her reputation ruined to nothing?
