Allie's Amish Family Miracle (The Amish Women of Lawrence County, 5) by Tracy Fredrychowski

Allie's Amish Family Miracle

Two worlds collide when true love enters an Old Order Amish community. Can this young woman go against tradition and find happiness in forbidden love? Allie Mast struggles to fit into her new community. Determined to prove herself to the Raber family, she can't help but notice how her Mennonite background and Rueben's Amish roots are causing tension between them. Every family has hurts and deep wounds, but the constant conflict pushes her to a place where she will do anything to get what she wants.

Reuben Raber has no desire to take over Raber Farms. When his overbearing mother, Saloma, is set to ruin any hopes of him making a life with Allie, his faith is tested beyond measure, and he experiences a crisis of conviction.

Can this determined couple find the courage to step out in faith and pursue peace and healing even when persecuted for their unconventional union?

Allie’s Amish Family Miracle is the inspirational fifth book in The Amish Women of Lawrence County series of women's fiction novels. If you like spiritual explorations, real-life challenges of emotional bravery, and basking in God's light, then you'll adore Tracy Fredrychowski's exploration of hope.

Welcome back to Willow Springs, Pennsylvania, for a powerful reminder that we're all susceptible to family problems! This fifth book in the Amish Women of Lawrence County revolves around the romance of Allie Mast and Reuben Raber but it certainly isn't all light and sweetness! Allie and Reuben's courtship and marriage are put to the test as they work to overcome his mother's doubts, the Amish bishop's strong concerns about Allie's Mennonite heritage, and Allie's increasing resentment toward her mother-in-law's interference. Saloma Raber perfectly exemplifies a meddling mother-in-law so I could understand Allie's thoughts and actions, but I could also see that Allie and her mother-in-law were more alike than they were willing to admit!

Author Tracy Fredrychowski is a master at creating characters that we all can relate to, and this is a perfect example of flawed people willing to change. It is an intriguing story of love, acceptance, forgiveness, and finally, redemption. There are references to the first four books of this series, but a first-time reader should have no trouble getting into this story. I enjoyed Allie's Amish Family Miracle and I look forward to the next book in this series.

I received a complimentary copy but there was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Tracy Fredrychowski is a country girl, author, homesteader and everything simple living. She has a passion for writing about the simpler side of life, much like the life she lived growing up in rural Pennsylvania.
Her life has always been intertwined with the Amish, and it’s only fitting that she has a genuine passion for their simplicity, sense of community and God-centered lives.
Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania she spent her childhood immersed deep in Amish Country.  The clip-clop of horse and buggy woke her each morning as Amish men drove past her childhood home on their way to work. As a young woman, she was traumatized by an Amish murder that involved a family member and changed her life forever.
Even though she currently lives in South Carolina her travels take her through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin’s Amish Country every year. During those stops, she researches the communities she visits and prides herself on writing Amish fiction that truly represents the Amish culture. She considers herself very fortunate to have made friends in those communities and values the information they share and wants nothing more than to represent their lifestyle as accurately as possible.
