Title: Winter of Wishes – Seasons of the Heart Book #3
Author: Charlotte Hubbard
Review: I enjoyed this book and I really love this series…I always want to know what new adventure the Lantz family is getting themselves into. On top of the fact that you learn so many interesting things about the Amish people also. That said I have never wanted to be Amish…too many things I think I would miss in the modern day world I live in….but many wonderful things could be said about living a simple life for sure! I do love the fact that they seem happy living without all the thing we thing are absolutely necessary. I do not like the fact that the men rule the roost and the women need to cater to them…no that is not my thing at all, if my husband is wrong I will let him know and I do not do what he says because he said it…I like the Lantz women they are strong and independent and yet the men seem to rule them at times and the bothers me…I could not sit still and be OK with all the problems what Hiram bring s into their lives.
This is a nice continuation of the lives of the Lantz women. Miriam is getting married to Ben, Rachel is married and collecting wedding gifts and Ronda needs a change. She gets her wish and things are definitely changing around her life and the lives of many others she touches.
If you like to read about the Amish then this is a great series…lots of information and romance making this a hard to put down series.

Synopsis: "A heartwarming new voice for fans of Beverly Lewis." --Emma Miller
Snow is falling, cookies are baking, and Christmas is just around the corner in Willow Ridge, Missouri, where a new season marks fresh beginnings for the residents of the tranquil Amish town. . .
Winter Of Wishes
As another year draws to a close in Willow Ridge, life seems to be changing for everyone but Rhoda Lantz. Her widowed mother is about to remarry, her sister is a busy newlywed, and soon Rhoda will be alone in her cozy apartment above the blacksmith's shop. An ad posted by an Englischer looking for someone to help with his mother and children may offer just the companionship she's looking for, but if she falls for the caring single father, she may risk being shunned by her community. Certain she can only wish for things she cannot have, Rhoda must remember that all things are possible with God, and nothing is stronger than the power of love.

Author Biography: Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard (a.k.a. Naomi King) writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle in her new Seasons of the Heart series. Like her heroine, Miriam Lantz, Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people—to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle, and the foundation of her earlier Angels of Mercy series. She’s a deacon, a dedicated church musician and choir member, and when she’s not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.
New Book so I could find no other reviews.
