About the book:

Charlo­tte Dolinsky needs time to recover after breaking up with her boyfriend, Ryan. But when a surprise visitor shows up on her doorstep in Texas, she’s forced to put aside her own worries to help her Amish friends in Lancaster County. Soon she is entangled in a web of deception—and this time, she isn’t the only one keeping secrets.

Daniel Byler struggles each day in his Amish community to heal from his fiancée’s betrayal. When he discovers that a member of his family is in danger of being shunned, his pain turns to fear. His only way to help is by partnering with Charlo­tte, a woman he barely knows who has already deceived them all before.

Charlo­tte begins building a friendship with Daniel that she’ll need to lean on when more surprises surface from her past and she once again finds herself torn between two worlds. Will Charlotte’s friends in the Amish community be able to show her the power of redemption and lead her home? And can she help young Jacob realize that God offers second chances at happiness when she isn’t even sure herself?

My review:

What a truly wonderful book.  Strong character development and an emotional storyline kept me reading the entire day!  I had been eagerly anticipating this book. I really liked the first one in the series, but I absolutely loved this one.

Charlotte is going through some pretty difficult times with both matters of the heart and financial problems.

Meanwhile, her friends in Paradise, Pennsylvania are going through some trying times of their own.  It was only natural for Charlotte to return to Paradise, as she had her deceased brothers home to sell and knew that she could be of some help to those that had shown kindness to her. In her heart she wanted to make amends to them for her deceit and the pain it had caused.

Some in the community have ambivalent feelings as she discovers when she moves back there.  Charlotte seeks forgiveness and acceptance for her past mistakes. The friendship between her and Daniel was unexpected and progressed at a great pace.

I was moved to tears throughout which showed me once again that Beth Wiseman writes from the heart.

I highly recommend this book to readers of both Amish and Christian fiction.

I received a copy of Love Bears All Things from the publisher for an honest opinion which I’ve given
