A Widow’s Hope – Substance, Not Fluff
Vannetta Chapman has branched out into Harlequin’s Love Inspired novels. I am used to getting a quality story from Chapman, but I wondered, “Would the author’s tone change when she went with this publisher?” I can honestly say no. Her latest Indiana Amish Brides release, A Widow’s Hope, proves yet again what an sensational storyteller Chapman is.
Hannah King has been forged by fire. In the last year, she lost her husband, her young son has become disabled, and now she lives with her parents (who are having financial woes.) Hannah doesn’t need another husband, she needs a job.
Jacob Schrock lives a quiet life as a carpenter. He is scarred, literally and figuratively, from a horrific event. When his business is audited by the IRS, he needs accounting help…fast. Is Hannah the answer?
I was given A Widow’s Hope in exchange for my honest review. It took a good two chapters for me to be into the book. But once I got started, I couldn’t stop. It’s a great novel to read on a cozy weekend. The characters are believable and charming, and I particularly appreciate that Vannetta Chapman is a “no fluff” author. There isn’t a word written that doesn’t need to be there – it’s all substance.
Susan Ferrell and her husband make their home in the Atlanta Metro area. Although Susan struggles with chronic migraine headaches, she stays very busy as a stay-at-home mom to one very precocious little girl. While catching her breath, she feeds her Amishaholic tendencies by reading vast amounts of Amish literature!
