Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Life can be surprising, upending the best-laid plans. But as in Rachel J. Good's third Unexpected Amish Blessings romance, even in the wake of tragedy, God's grace and the healing power love can close any wound.

In the picturesque Amish community of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, life's detours may prove the path to true happiness...

After a buggy accident when she was a teenager, Anna Flaud was told she would never walk again. Unwilling to be an object of pity, she put aside her dreams of marriage and found purpose as an assistant at a Community Care Center. Now she has a chance to fulfill her dearest wish--motherhood--and adopt three siblings with special needs. Yet the opportunity comes with a condition Anna isn't sure she can meet: finding a husband.

Levi King began working at the center as penance after a careless mistake led to tragedy. Though he's dealing with his own heartbreak, he's drawn to Anna, cheering her on as she strives to regain her mobility. Her quiet determination, her generous heart--these are qualities to cherish in a wife. Still, Anna's plans give him pause. Given his past, Levi hardly trusts himself to care for one child, let alone three. Yet together, perhaps they could forge a family made sturdier by all they've overcome...

Publishers Weekly Review

Good continues her Unexpected Blessings series (following His Unexpected Amish Twins) with this enjoyable story of an Amish woman who gets a second chance at love and motherhood. Due to an accident seven years earlier, Anna Flaud has lost the use of her legs, as well as her ability to have children. What drives her is her promise to sweetheart Gabe that she would answer his marriage proposal once she could walk to meet him. Levi King, Anna's new physical therapist, finds both her beauty and her determination attractive. Though Anna develops feelings for Levi as well, her focus remains on Gabe. After a great deal of effort and years of therapy, Anna achieves her goal--only to discover Gabe is engaged to another woman. Levi tries to court Anna, but she turns him down because she doesn't want to deprive him of having children. While Good's wholesome narrative is predictable, the characters are strong; Anna and Levi's commitment to faith is revealed organically as both must learn to give themselves over to God's plan. Fans of Amy Clipston's Amish novels will love this. (Dec.)
