"An Amish Harvest" [The Amish Bachelors Series, Book 1] by Patricia Davids

Author's Book Description : Nursing His Heart
When Amish carpenter Samuel Bowman is injured in an accident, he fears he'll never see again. He's always provided for his family—and now that it's harvest season, the Bowmans are needed in the fields, not at his bedside. So when a young Amish widow becomes his nurse, Samuel expects Rebecca Miller to make his life easier. But his caregiver is bossy, outspoken and challenges him to move on with his life. Though Samuel's sight is in question, he can plainly see the woman he's come to care for won't let herself love again. Now it's Samuel's turn to heal her heart.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! A spin-off from Ms. Davids' "Amish Redemption" (book 13 in her Brides of Amish Country) follows Joshua's oldest brother Samuel who is determined to work hard by expanding his family's furniture business in hopes of keeping his brothers (and their own families when they get them) living in their community of Bowmans Crossing. However, a detrimental accident leaves Samuel temperately blind and has second/third degree burns on his hands and face. As harvest time approaches Rebecca, a young Amish widower who now helps those as a caretaker, is asked to assist Samuel and his family. During their time together, they grow close but is Rebecca willing to open her heart enough to love someone else again and will Samuel be able to overcome his need to take on the world without asking for help?

This is a sweet novel about overcoming heartache and circumstance. I found Samuel & Rebecca to be charming in their banter and growing relationship as they keep one another on their toes. Plus, Samuel’s brothers kept me entertained too, it’ll be interesting to see who they will end up with as this series progresses. Nevertheless, even though I enjoyed its ending I wish Rebecca could have been more decisive instead of wishy-washy about her own feelings.

Overall, I recommend this novel to those looking for an enchanting Amish romance!
