A Canadian Amish farmer A Lancaster Amish businesswoman A Prince Edward Island foster child
Providence brings together a mismatched family, giving all three a second chance for love. Only love may never have had such a tough job.
Lydia Miller is an anomaly among her Amish people-a single woman in her 30s, running her own store, determined to forge a life on her own. But when Joel Yoder comes into town to sell his property, Lydia suddenly finds all of her hopes and dreams crumbling around her and a new opportunity placed in her lap. Joel has his own problems. Recently jilted by his fiancée, Joel has seen his own dreams of moving to a newly established Amish community begin to falter. The new community welcomes married couples only. With his dreams quickly slipping from his fingers, Joel suddenly sees the only option he thinks he has-a marriage of convenience for both of them. As the new couple begins life in a new settlement, they are even more surprised when a foster child in need of a home finds her way to them. Yet what will happen when the English world and the Amish world collide?
Forever Home ranks as one of the very best Amish love stories I've ever read. Amy Grochowski takes this genre of fiction in an enticing new direction. Her writing is-quite simply-fabulous. I could not put it down. If you love a writer who draws you into her story world and won't let you go until the happily ever after-Amy's the one for you.

I love everything about Forever Home-the characters, the relationships, the vivid imagery, and the refreshing plot twists. Not only is it a compelling love story, but author Amy Grochowski has thoughtfully interwoven the redemptive truth of God's love and forgiveness. I was drawn further into the story with each page and at the end found myself hoping for a sequel!
