Tietoja tekijästä

A lifetime spent in rural Pennsylvania and her own Pennsylvania Dutch roots led Marta Perry to the books she writes now about the Amish. The Pleasant Valley Amish series from Berkley Books are longer, more complex emotional stories with Amish main characters, while her Love Inspired suspense näytä lisää stories are shorter, more adventure-filled books set in Pennsylvania Dutch country. She also writes a Love Inspired series, The Bodine Family, set on the South Carolina coast where she and her husband have a second home. Marta lives with her husband in a century-old farmhouse in the Pennsylvania countryside, but spends winters at their vacation home in South Carolina. When she's not writing, she's active in the life of her church and enjoys traveling and spending time with her three children and six beautiful grandchildren. (Publisher Fact Sheets) näytä vähemmän

A fantastic book! I love the setting of Promise Glen so much! It's so homey! The story is unique and engaging. The characters are fabulous! Leah is my favorite! She's working on trust issues and letting go of the past. The Christmas season is the perfect time to let go of pain and embrace love! A definite must read!

A fantastic book! The story is unique and engaging! The characters are wonderful and relatable! The setting of Easter time is perfect! Easter is my favorite holiday! Anna is a strong woman. She's fulfilled but struggling with unforgiveness. Matthew is holding onto pain from the past. They each must move forward so that love can be found! A story of forgiveness, love and the importance of faith! A definite must read!

Thanksgiving Blessing is the endearing story of Rebecca “Becca” Knight, a Promise Glen native for life, and Nathan Mueller, a recent arrival, as they both heal from a devastating loss with the loving compassion of the Amish community and the encouragement of family.

Becca's twins were my favorite since they resembled my granddaughter so much, but with one exception: unlike my granddaughter, who is never still, even while napping or at night, the twins were!

After their mother remarried and left him with his brother Peter, Nathan finds himself overburdened in caring for his younger brother. I could relate to Nathan; raising teenagers can prove challenging, even when they don't have the same sense of abandonment as Peter experienced.

Despite her anxiety that her mother doesn't trust her, Becca only wants to make her parents proud of her achievements.

Admittedly, there were moments when I wanted to shake both of them. But I understood that I was privy to information that they were not. Thought-provoking, Thanksgiving Blessing reveals that most of the time it is preferable to let someone sort things out on their own rather than having someone else step in and "fix" them.

Thanksgiving Blessing is a sweet and delightful story about the Thanksgiving season. It's a great way to celebrate the occasion and a wonderful way to begin experiencing gratitude during the holiday season.

I received an advanced review copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley. All opinions are my own, and I am voluntarily leaving this review.

P.S. There's a little bit of a mystery to figure out, too!

Thanksgiving Blessing by Marta Perry takes up back to Promise Glen where Rebecca King, a widow, is raising her twins, managing her farm, and selling produce at her roadside fruit and vegetable stand. Halloween is approaching and vandalism is occurring in the area. Nathan Mueller and his teenage brother move into the neighboring farm that Nathan inherited from his ne’er-do-well uncle. Nathan has no intention of getting involved with the pretty widow next door, but his protective instincts kick in. Plus, Rebecca’s family has a way of drawing people into their circle. I enjoyed returning to Promise Glen. While Thanksgiving Blessing is the third An Amish Holiday Novel, it can be read on its own. I like Marta Perry’s writing style. The story is told from a dual third person protagonist point of view. It allows us to see issues from Nathan and Rebecca’s point of view. I thought the characters were developed and realistic. We get to know Rebecca and Nathan as well as Peter (Nathan’s teenage brother), Miriam, Abel, and the twins (Joanna and James). I like that each character has their own storyline. The twins keep Rebecca hopping. They provide some cute and amusing moments. I like that a mystery was included in the story. Someone is creating havoc, and it seems to be more than the normal Halloween hijinks. I like how Amish traditions are included in the story. I like learning about the Amish culture and their traditions. Thanksgiving Blessing is a story about family, grief, love, friendship, and faith. Being supportive of family and friends was another element. I like how Amos introduced Nathan to the men he would be doing business within the community. He made sure to include him in family meals and gatherings. This is a story that is great to read on a rainy day or one of those rare, chilly days we have in Florida (because then I can lounge in a cozy chair with a warm blanket and read all afternoon). Thanksgiving Blessing is a wholesome, heartwarming story that left me smiling.… (lisätietoja)
