” A Home for Lydia” is the 2nd book in the Pebble Creek series by Vendetta Chapman. I suggest you rad book #1 A promise for Miriam, before reading this book. It is an introduction to Lydia. This series is based on a fictional Amish family(families.
In A home for Lydia, she is now out of school and working at Plain Cabins. She works to help her family. Due to the death of the owner. Aaron arrives, he is the nephew of the owner. He is sent by his father to help his aunt and her children.
Aaron and Lydia do not see things the same way. Aaron is frustrated at what he sees when he arrives. Lydia is frustrated at Aaron for the way he begins to care for The Plain Cabins. It takes many things throughout the Amish community for them both to see things.
There is Gracie, Clara, Miriam, and a Varity of family members that have side issues.
In this book I like to see the growth of Gracie age 9. Though she was not a main character, the author showed her continue to grow from the first book.
I also like how this book is more true to the Amish life and shows that they deal with the same issues as English people do. I also enjoy how they show how close to God they are. In one point the Bishop talks with Gracie when she mentions Gus her donkey. This part really touched me.
I am ready to read the next book and continue to see this community grow and share how they help each other.
I have totally been slacking on reading. Plan for Saturday is to read most of the day. Then I get to go with my daughter to Avenue Q.
I have just started reading lean body fat wallet by Ellie kay and Danna Demeter. I received this book from www.booklook.com . I look forward to reviewing this. Highlighting and take notes.
Well peace out.
In this book of the continue stories of the House of Winslow. Each book follows a family member which started with Gilbert Winslow.
We are introduced to Zack and his grown children. His daughter Betsy feels left out. She feels her sister Lanie is more beautiful and more popular.
Betsy meets Vic. She thinks she’s in love and leaves home to go with him. She did not realize that he was an out law. When her family finds out the trouble she is in, lanie feels responsible and foes after her.
Soon to follow is Wesley, a friend of the family.. will not tell about him have to read.
the young Winslow ladies go through a lot. On the end. One of the gangsters finds God… this seems to be a theme in the House of Winslow. Sometimes it is a Winslow and sometimes it is someone they show to find God.
I have read each Winslow book, I grow closer each with each one. I love seeing how it started with Gilbert Winslow and each family looks back to what he did and how he survived thought the brutal first winter in America.

He told her he didn’t understand why he was brought back to just struggle with all the pain.
For me I could relate with this book. As a parent and having 3 children. My son has come close to dyeing a few times. The first and most scaring was in February of 2004. He was med-fighter. I had to be driven the 2 hours to the hospital. Even though I didn’t know how he was truly feeling as for a week he was unresponsive. Over the next 7 years we walked on egg shells going through time of remission to going to the hospital in a blink of the eye.
I realized after a year or 2 that it was my son Sean, that was holding on to God and his faith, while I was lost. It was him that brought me out of the dark hole of not understanding.
This book was given to me through www.booklook.com I agreed to read it and post a review for free. I am not being paid and this is my own review and thoughts
I read a lot. I am new to writing reviews. I think the more I write them the better I will get. So my plan is to write one with each book. Any in put word be grate.
This book starts of with the Amish Bishop asking a local professor for help finding his grandson. The grandson of his son Johan. Johan had left the Amish life. When he realized he had a son he took him, saying he would bring him back.
When the Bishop talked to the professor, he made it clear that he was not to involve the police. If he did he would deny every thing. He also did not want anyone to know about the search for his grandson.
Johan ends up dead near his family farm, when this comes to light. The professor has to go to the police. They follow many leads. When they come to find Jeremiah. They find the truth about the ransom. The truth about Johan.
This was an easy read for me, I didn’t want to stop reading. I was drawn into the fact that an Amish Bishop asked an Englishmen for help. Seeing how the Amish live in the plain way. Compared to the English.
I liked how many were invoked, without really knowing at first that they were. How in the end everyone was involved with finding you Jeremiah.
I also like that I learned a bit more about the Amish ways.
