"Her Secret Amish Child" [Pinecraft Homecomings Series, Book 1] by Cheryl Williford

Author's Book Description : An Amish Second Chance

Newly widowed Lizbeth Mullet has a secret: she's never told anyone the true identity of her son's father. Not even now that she's come home to Pinecraft and the man in question is her new landlord. Fredrik Lapp may not know Benuel is his son, but the two soon form an unmistakable bond. And seeing Fredrik again stirs feelings Lizbeth had worked hard to bury. With Fredrick's affections resurfacing, too, the burden of Lizbeth's secret is only getting heavier. Revealing the truth could mean a lifetime of happiness together—or the loss of her second chance at forever.

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. Lizbeth is an Amish widow who is escaping her life in Ohio and moving back to where she grew up in Pinecraft, Florida. While establishing herself back into the community she grew up her life takes a sudden twist when she learns that her feelings for Fredrik (her older brother’s best friend) is still there. But if they get to close her big secret will be exposed so would it all be worth the heartache?

This novel ... oh this novel ... the book’s description hooked me so I was hyped to read this when I finally got into it. HOWEVER, by PAGE 37 I was having a hard time dealing with Lizbeth’s mothering skills. Even though I understand that there are circumstances that led to the whys of her mothering skills, it was still hard to read. Therefore, from that point on it was just one thing after another that made reading about Lizbeth’s new life difficult to read. Yet the topper, and worst part of all, was how she dealt with her relationship with Fredrik, especially in regards to her secret. It all made me struggle in keeping up with this novel and liking it.

Basically, I’ve come to the decision that this novel was not for me, as though I didn’t enjoy much the ending felt rushed too. The only thing I liked about this novel was Ms. Williford’s world building and some of the secondary characters. So, even though I wasn’t a fan I would try another novel by this author. I can’t recommend this novel but if you’ve read it I’d love to hear/read your thoughts!
