BookReview The Wonder of Your Love by Beth Wiseman
Eli Detweiler went to Colorado for a family wedding. This would be the first of many trips. He just married off his last child and he was free to do as he pleased. He planned to travel a lot. He still had his farm in Ohio, but he would travel as much as he could. Although it was the Amish way to marry soon after the death of a spouse, he had been a widower for 17 years.

Katie Ann Stolzfus lived in Colorado with her infant son, Jonas. She and her husband, Ivan, were married for twenty years before she had Jonas. She was a recent widow. But she lost her husband months before he died. He chose to leave her and the Amish ways. He had lived in Lancaster county with Lucy Turner, an Englisher. Katie Ann never told him she was pregnant.

Martha, an older English woman helped Katie Ann care for Jonas. Martha was outspoken and a bit of a hypochondriac but she was Katie Ann's best friend. Martha's heart was broken because her boyfriend, Arnold, had left town. His son became sick so he went to live with him. After he died, he stayed on with his daughter-in-law to help her out.

Eli and Katie Ann met at his cousin Elam's house. Before they know it, everyone was trying to get them together. Neither Katie Ann or Eli were looking for love. Katie Ann felt she couldn't trust a man again. Eli wanted to be free to do as he pleased. They were attracted to each other but refused to admit to themselves or anyone else. They decided to be friends - friends that have shared more than one kiss.

Lucy showed up at Katie Ann's door asking if she knew about a house in a picture she had found in Ivan's belongings. Lucy was pregnant and had no money for her and the baby. She had hoped Ivan was going to surprise her with the house. Katie Ann knew nothing about the house.

When Eli returned home, he and Katie keep in contact with letters, calls and even a few visits.

Martha had surgery and she was sure she was going to die. Arnold surprised her with a visit at the hospital. While in the hospital, Martha reached out to Danielle, her teenage roommate and got more than she bargained for. She saw her steal money from her purse. She also found her in her house after she returned home.

Katie Ann received notice that she had to go to the lawyer to deal with Ivan's will. She discovered that he had a house built - the one in Lucy's picture. A nursery was all set up in the house. Lucy had told her Ivan didn't know that she was pregnant. Katie also found a letter from Ivan for her explaining about the house.

This book has four different stories within it that are all woven together nicely. It's about finding love and healing in unexpected ways. You have to read the book to find out what happens with Katie Ann and Eli, Lucy and her baby, Martha and Arnold, and Danielle and her situation. I really like this story. I would recommend this book for anyone who believes that love doesn't always come to them in a way they are looking for. The Wonder of Your Love is the second book in the Land of Canaan Series

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
