About the book;
Patience, faith–and the hopes and dreams within their hand-carved hope chests–help to bring three young Amish women, one by one, the blessed futures their hearts desire…
Rachel Kauffman and Jarred Zimmerman seem to have nothing in common. She’s the outgoing youngest of a large, close-knit Amish clan, and longs to raise a brood of her own near those she loves. Estranged from his family by tragedy, Jarred is a young veterinarian who trusts the animals he heals far more than he trusts people. However, when Rachel’s beloved horse falls ill, Jarred’s struggles to save him show Rachel he’s a man who cares deeply. And the respect he feels for her gentle warmhearted ways soon becomes an irresistible bond…
When Rachel tries to help Jarred reunite with his parents, it is an unexpected blessing–with one complication. If he takes this chance to put his past to rest, it could separate him and Rachel for good. Now, with prayer, love–and her hope chest’s small miracles–Jarred and Rachel must find the courage to reconcile their wishes into a joyous life together.
My review (4-stars)
I’ve loved the Hope Chest of Dreams series. The stories are so tender and the characters are so very sweet.
Rachel and her love for her sick horse really tugged at my heart. As an animal lover myself, I knew the heartache she felt. I loved Jared and his dedication to his work and more importantly his faith. The strong message of faith throughout added to my enjoyment.
Old Sam has been my favorite character throughout the series so I was delighted to catch up with him again. He’s wise, kind and caring and such an important part of this series.
If you love sweet Christian romance than this book and series are highly recommended.
I received a complimentary copy of Rachel’s Dream and have given my honest opinion.
