Naomi's Hope

Despite growing pains in her 1846 Amish community in Indiana, Naomi Schrock has settled into a comfortable life in her parents' home with her adopted son, Davey. Surrounded by family and friends, she tries not to think about the fact that she's not at the top of any man's list of potential wives. Yet when Cap Stoltzfus moves into the area and befriends Davey, Naomi finds herself caught between the plans she has made for her future and the tantalizing thought that Cap might be part of a life she never dared to hope for.

When a couple shows up claiming to be Davey's true family, Naomi and Cap must unite to make the decision that will determine the boy's future as well as their own. How can she relinquish him to these unknown relatives? And can God somehow bring wholeness to her heart?
  


My Review

This book may be the third and final in this trilogy but it can be read as a stand alone novel. I liked Naomi and Davey. He was such a sweet and curious boy. The way that he attached himself instantly to Cap was charming. Davey needed a male figure in his life and he found a good one in Cap. Plus, Cap as able to heal as well.

While, I liked this book, I did struggle with the pacing of the story. It was slow. I like that the author set up the location and the people but after a while, it felt like there was more talking without much else happening. In fact, there was times where I must admit that I skipped ahead. Yet, I never really felt like I missed anything but doing this. In regards, to the religion aspect, I found this book to not be preachy. I have read a couple books now from this author and I am slowly finding my footing with the author and would read more.
