A New Love for Charlotte (Wells Landing #11) by Amy Lillard

A New Love for Charlotte (Wells Landing #11)ABOUT THE BOOK

Renewed faith and happiness await three generations of women in this heartwarming series from Amy Lillard, set in the Oklahoma Amish community of Wells Landing . . .

With her daughter newly married, widow Charlotte Burkhart should have been content to find a companion for her later years in Amish widower Glenn Esh. Yet, Charlotte longs for more than life has offered her thus far. When she discovers a baby on her doorstep, the child seems like the miracle Charlotte’s been praying for. Unfortunately, Glenn doesn’t feel the same way. What’s a single woman aching to experience motherhood once more to do?

From the moment Paul Brenneman sees Charlotte Burkhart with a new baby, he senses his lovely neighbor and the sweet child are meant to be. Which is why he offers to marry Charlotte and make her adoption dreams come true. No stranger to heartache himself, the stalwart widower knows second chances don’t happen every day—especially not with a woman like Charlotte, the first woman in a long time who has him taking a leap of faith that happily-ever-after is still possible .


MY THOUGHTS.....

Charlotte Burkhart is a 43 year old widow searching for a purpose in her life. Her daughter has married, her widowed mother-in-law is engaged, and Charlotte feels so alone. It isn't until an "English" baby is left on her doorstep that Charlotte realizes how badly she needs to feel wanted and needed! Perhaps this baby and marriage to Glenn Esh is what God has planned for her!

A New Love for Charlotte
is a thought-provoking story about middle-aged people searching for love and happiness, and as much as I liked Charlotte, I couldn't understand how she could consider marrying Glenn. It was apparent to me that her neighbor Paul Brenneman was her perfect match but their friendship obscured her from seeing what was so obvious to others. It was baby Amber, however, that made this such a special story. Author Amy Lillard captures the absolute joy that comes from nuzzling a baby's neck and smelling its sweetness, and I was totally wrapped up in Charlotte's dilemma. She loved and wanted this baby and she was sure she could be a good mother to Amber, but what chance was there that a middle-aged Amish widow would be allowed to adopt an English baby?


This story made me cry, it made me smile, and it left me feeling warm and fuzzy! If you are looking for a heart-warming romance filled with hope and faith, you will certainly enjoy A New Love for Charlotte.

I received a copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation to write a favorable review.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
