Summary

The doctor told Wanda that she had a fourth of an ovary and that child bearing was not an option.  God had promised her that she would have children.  Was God going to lie to her?  God fulfills His promises.  After years of waiting and trying, Wanda brought five children into this world and was a mother just as was promised.  With the miracle came an unwanted price since we have come to believe that Heaven has a price on some of its most cherished of gifts.  It wasn’t that it was authored by a loving God, but the seeds of cancer were sown as the gift was made real for five times.  This young family would watch their mother succumb to a dreadful disease, slowly leaching the life from her.  Wanda had a challenge understanding why the children she had been promised wouldn’t be hers to raise to adulthood.  Christmas would come that year before she finally died in February and the gift she craved was just to understand God’s will in granting the blessing and then seemingly ripping it away in a slow death.  Miracles happen to create life and miracles happen to explain why life gets cut short.

    An unplanned pregnancy. An absent father. Can love really endure all things? 
    Danielle Kent is anything but Amish. But as destiny would have it, she has fallen in love with an Amish man. 
    Now she’s 18, pregnant, and hopeful that the child’s Amish father—Matthew Lapp—will do the right thing and marry her. She knows Matthew plans to leave his Colorado settlement for a life in the Englisch world. But that plan never included a baby. 
    When Matthew walks away from her and their unborn child, she has nowhere to turn. Her unlikely friendship with Levi offers some comfort—yet they have so little in common. This wasn’t the plan she had for her life, and she has never felt so alone. She doesn’t want to be pregnant. Doesn’t want to be Amish. Doesn’t want to trust God. 
    And yet. 
    God has plans beyond what her mind can imagine . . . loving plans to show a lost young woman that His love never fails but endures forever. 
    “Wiseman is among the best at writing moving Amish fiction.” —Booklist review of The Wonder of His Love
