Book One in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series.
Every year, 30-40 young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive ‘resident’ status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides! Sarah Shelter has lived in West Kootenai for the last ten years and wonders if she will ever fall in love. Since the tragic death of her best friend, she carries her memories in a jar along with the small items connected to them. For just as long, she’s also been carrying around her emotions instead of allowing them to penetrate deep into her heart. Now she’s met a kind and gentle man who may be able to break down the wall. But can Sarah risk her heart to finally achieve her dreams?
From the moment I start this book I fell in love with the characters. It was refreshing to read a book where the characters are just good people and trying to do the right things. This is the first book I have read where the characters are Amish and I am for sure going to read more because they are good books to read and they give me a break from some of the other crazy books I tend to read. Anyways lets get back to this book. Through the whole book I hoped that Sarah and Jathan would end up falling in love and be together when the book ended. I have to say the author does a great job describing things because when I would read about Sarah baking I would always end up wanting to eat whatever the author described. This is super sweet love story that almost anyone would enjoy!
