    Amazing

    Author Amy Lillard wrote an amazing storyline for A Home for Hannah. I loved how she weaved all her different characters together. I never knew which way the story would turn and this kept my attention. A Home for Hannah is a delightful book to read. It's well-written and I would be astonished if it did not keep your attention. I encourage everyone to read A Home for Hannah by Author Amy Lillard. The book is Book One of the new series, Amish of Pontotoc. I'm looking forward to reading Book Two. I received a copy from the publisher, but was not required to review it. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

    Great Amish read

    This was a different type of Amish story from most I've read. Amish do have problems just as non-Amish, it's just usually handled within their community and their church. All Hannah wanted to do was just get a little taste of the "English" world before joining the church. But when she was ready to return things happened that kept her from returning. She waited 15 years before she came back to her Amish home. Her husband passed away and left her with no money. She spent time waffling back and forth about whether to return to her Amish upbringing and join the church or stay as she had lived for fifteen years. Her main concern was her son who had been raised in the English world with electricity, electronics, cars and phones. That's all he had known. And of course there was a man that Hannah had been in love with when she left. How had his life changed over the years? It's hard to imagine living that long without any contact with parents and siblings other than a handful of letters. Reconnecting with God was difficult too. Hannah felt like God wasn't listening to her when she did try to begin praying once again. Lying had become as natural to her as breathing. How can this tangled web of lies ever get straightened out? I found myself asking these questions as I read along. At times the situation seemed almost impossible, but with God all things are possible. Since this is the first in a new series, I hope I hear more about this family and get to invest some time in their lives. I received a complimentary copy of this novel but was not required to write a review.

    First novel in Amish of Pontotoc series

    A Home for Hannah by Amy Lillard is the first story in Amish of Pontotoc series. Hannah McLean is returning home to Pontotoc, Mississippi with her son, Brandon after the death of her husband. Hannah needs a place for them to stay until the estate is settled (her husband left her with a mess). She had left the community fifteen years prior to explore the Englisch world. Pontotoc is a conservative Amish settlement that does not have indoor plumbing (that is so wrong). It will be a big adjustment for her son, Brandon. When Hannah left she broke Aaron Zook’s heart. Aaron is now a widow with three children to care for as well as his farm. He prefers training horses, but there is little opportunity for that in his area. Aaron just received an offer for a job in Ohio working with horses which he is thinking about accepting until Hannah returns. His feelings for Hannah have not changed, but they can only be together if Hannah joins the Amish faith. But can they overcome the past to have a future? Can Hannah return to a simpler way of life? A Home for Hannah is a sweet Amish romance. It does contain some nice writing, but I found the pace slow (which made the book feel long and drawn out). In some places the story stalled out (failed to move forward). The POV moves between Hannah, Aaron and Brandon. I enjoyed Brandon’s story more than Hannah and Aaron’s. He is taken away from everything that is familiar and thrust into a world with no computer, gaming devices or a phone (or indoor toilet). Brandon’s cousin, Joshua Gingerich befriends Brandon and shows how to enjoy life without modern technology (fishing for example). I failed to connect with Hannah. Her indecision, blaming others and her life choices were frustrating (after 15 years you cannot use lack of education and naivete as an excuse). There was too much redundancy in A Home for Hannah. The same questions or thoughts are repeated in each chapter (mostly in the first half of the book). A Home for Hannah just seemed off. I found it lacking (like the author was holding back and not letting the story flow naturally). I wanted more depth added to the story and less predictability. A Home for Hannah could have used a rewrite.

    This is a story of hope and inspiration!

    This is the first book in a new series, Amish of Pontotoc. What a fantastic start to a new series, the story focuses on Hannah, Brandon, and Aaron. A Home for Hannah is about a young Amish girl who leaves her community to see what the English world is all about. Fifteen years later, she returns back to the Amish community she left? I enjoyed reading about Hannah, and the struggles she goes through. Hannah is pulled between the love she has for her son and faith of her community. Will the Amish community welcome her back? Or will she be shunned? Aaron Zook was Hannah’s first love, now a widower with 3 children to raise and a farm to run. But Aaron prefers training horses and he has received job offer in Ohio working with horses. Will he accept the offer and move away? Or will his feelings for Hannah make him stay? Will they be able to overcome their past to have a future together? Will Hannah find a place to call home? This is a story of hope and inspiration! Amy Lillard does thorough research into her characters and settings. Amy has taken the setting from the real town of Pontotoc, Mississippi. And the characters have such genuine feelings and thoughts that the everyday person would have. You will laugh and even shed a tear with these characters. If you are a fan of Amish Fiction you will not be disappointed. Grab a copy of Amy’s new book and curl up with a cuppa and enjoy. I am looking forward to the release of A Love for Leah later this year!
