"The Wonder of  Your Love"

          By Beth Wiseman

Just when you think that Beth has written the BEST book ever, she does it again!!!  "The Wonder of Your Love" is the second book in her Land of Canaan Amish Series and is as marvellous as the first, "Seek Me With all Your Heart".  
The ability to appeal to your heart and soul is one in which few authors excel in every book they write, but Beth is the exception. Every one of her books has had this quality evident within the characters and the plot . Her characters are alive - they are REAL people with REAL problems and challenges in which you  cannot help but become involved , as you make your way through the story.  They become part of you. Beth's faith and  sincerity shines through each and every one of them.  
    " The Wonder of Your Heart" is the story of Katie Ann, who also was in the first of the "Land of Canaan" Series.  Katie Ann Stoltzfus , living in  a small Amish community in Colorado, has lost the love of her life and now must carry on, at forty years old and with a young child to raise. The baby boy will never know his father, and Katie struggles with 
 this fact. Has her Heavenly Father left her too?? Why would God expect her to  be a capable single parent???  Katie Ann's faith is challenged to the max!! As a reader,  I could feel her anguish, as she pondered what the future would hold. 

Eli, a widower,  has raised six children by himself and comes to Canaan for a wedding. He is enjoying his peace and quiet after a busy lifestyle of being both  mam and dat to his family. HOWEVER,  when Katie Ann and  Eli meet, there is an instant connection- they feel the attraction- that becomes a real problem. They are at opposite ends of their parenting- she has just begun and he is done- and feeling somewhat relieved.
How can this relationship flourish when their goals and lives are so different?  Does God have a plan for them that differs from their own?  
Martha, from the first book, is again, a very important presence in the story. You just have to love her unique personality and quips and frankness and how she is woven into the story. Danielle is another character who stirs your emotions. I certainly hope that Beth continues her story!! I just have to know what life has in store for her.
Each and every character plays a very special role and you grow to love each one as you feel their challenges as well as their  happiness, and sometimes cry with them as they experience heartache.
Beth, in her usual style, keeps you wondering  throughout the book- her plot becomes deeper and just when you think you know what will happen next, she throws in another twist.  This book is full of deep emotions teaching us to trust God even when times are difficult. It is definitely a book of renewal and redemption and you feel that throughout , as you encounter a variety of wonderful  characters.
This is a MUST READ!!   An author  like Beth Wiseman inspires all of us to become the best we can be. No, we can not all be an author, but we can follow God's plan for our lives and that is what this book is all about.
YAY, Beth!! You did it again!
