The Englisch Daughter by Cindy Woodsmall & Erin Woodsmall

I’m not an Amish romance (or any romance, for that matter) fan, BUT this was not a romance, although it did deal with two couples. One couple, Roy and Jemima, are married with four children. The other couple, Abigail and Chris, just meet and develop a relationship throughout the book.

Roy has a secret. He had a one-night-stand with an old flame and the kicker is, he doesn’t even remember what happened! He’s hidden this secret from his wife for more than nine months. When Jemima finds out, can she forgive him? How will this child fit into their world?

Through a series of twists and turns, Jemima does forgive and there are peace and harmony in the family again. You’ll have to read the book to find out how she gets to that place!

This was a very easy read, with some intrigue and mystery. I liked it. It wasn’t great, but I liked it. If you want some casual reading that will prompt you to think about the nature of forgiveness and the complexities of relationships, this might be just the ticket. Check it out!

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Waterbrook Multnomah, in exchange for my honest review.**
