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.andnbsp;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.

My Review/Thoughts:

I have enjoyed reading Tricia's previous books about the Amish.   This one stands out to me because of how it deals with some very deep emotions about loss and grief.  The memory jar represents deep emotions that Sarah hangs onto and hasn't healed yet.  It is the journey of healing and finding her way that make Sarah such a strong character that readers can relate to.  We all carry our hurt and our guilt and keep it close to us, often closing ourselves off from the life that God would want us to have.   Tricia has a gift of crafting stories that deal with heart issues in a unique and captivating way.

I liked how the relationship between Sarah and Jathan started as a friendship and grew into something more.  I also  learned more about how the Amish view certain things that I hadn't known before.  This a very moving story and I look forward to reading the next book in the series!

this definitely sounds like a story I would enjoy! I love the clean romance novels, and when they add even more depth to the story, it makes it that much more enjoyable. I am adding this to my "to read" list. Thanks!
