Summary

Hannah Glick finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Her community offers her love and support after the untimely death of her husband, but an Englisher offers her the chance of a new life after her unexpected tragedy.

Wealthy businessman Trey Peterson is surprised by his attraction to the gentle Amish woman who works as a housekeeper in the Lancaster Grand Hotel. They share a common bond of loss and are able to offer each other comfort and support as they journey through their grief.

Joshua Glick wants nothing more than to offer his friendship and love to Hannah and her family. Not only is he her late husband's brother and business partner, but he has always been in love with Hannah.

A Hopeful Heart is filled with surprising twists as Hannah tries to balance her life in the Amish community and her growing love for an outsider.

Good book

I really enjoyed the audio book! I thought the narrator wasn't as good as others I've listened too, but I got used to her.
The story was wonderful ! The hard decisions we make in life came to life ! I saw the Amish way of life in a different perspective . At times when driving I was yelling Go Hannah!! Really enjoyed this book!

German classes

The story was done well, but the narrator should take at least a few basic German classes. "Wie gehts" for example is pronounced "Vee Gates". A review of a few of the rules would be helpful.

Fantastic book!

Love the storyline! Narrator could have done better for a couple voices but it definitely wouldn't keep me from listening to it again.

Narrator was poor

I absolutely could not tolerate the narrator. I was excited to have a new series but I couldn’t handle it.

Tender story

I enjoyed this first book in the series and look forward to the next book.
I enjoy stories about Amish life as it is a simple yet complex religion. The story revolves around a widow in the Amish community and a wodower in the “Englisch” community who find great similarities in their lives which draws tbem to one another.
The implications of such a relationship rocks the Amish community in ways we cannot comprehend. The choice to leave means excommunication.
The narrator does a great job telling the story and bringing the characters alive.
Well done and as I said, I cannot wait to start the next book in the series.

Changes in Life

This story was about struggle within a person's conscience. It was fiction but could have been non-fiction in the everyday life of a young widow living in the Amish faith. It was well written and ended differently than you might suspect.
