A Search For Redemption

Title: A Search for Redemption
Secrets of Bliss Valley #3
Author: Jo Ann Brown
Publisher: Love Inspired Trade 
Release Date: August 23, 2022 
Genre: Amish-inspirational romance

Bestselling author Jo Ann Brown returns to the Amish community of Bliss Valley, where finding a new beginning means facing the past…

After losing both her fiancĂ© and the happy life she anticipated, Amish maedel Grace Coffman is still stitching the pieces of her life back together. But between working in a quilting shop with an unscrupulous Englisch boss and caring for her ill parents, her threads keep unraveling. At first, the arrival of a kind, attractive stranger feels like a coincidence. But the more Grace learns about Joel Beachy and his story, the more their meeting seems like providence… 

 Joel's return to Bliss Valley—and the Plain people—is his last chance to redeem a life filled with missteps. Yet in Grace, Joel finds something he never imagined: trust, courage and even the possibility of hope. When Grace suddenly finds herself the guardian of her nephews, Joel sees an opportunity to keep two wayward boys from repeating his mistakes. But Joel's dark past isn't quite finished with him. And now he must pray that his new life is strong enough to withstand the pending storm of trouble…and secrets.

“Brown is a gifted writer who makes unforgettable characters that invite the reader to join them on their journey.” —Publishers Weekly bestselling author Marie E. Bast

5 star rating

A Search for Redemption is an inspiring and inspirational Amish story with the main theme of forgiveness in its deepest form. Grace, a young woman who takes care of her parents while working at a quilt shop, suddenly finds her life changing in a most unexpected way. The loss of her betrothed, still a hurtful memory, haunts her days. Joel, an Englisher now, but with a past full of heartache and a time spent in prison, decides to return to his hometown. His life will never be the same.

The characters are well-developed and through the pages, I understood their heartache, but also the determination and strength they mustered to forgiveness. There are a lot of emotional parts to the story where I needed to reach for the tissues, but also joyful times where my heart soared with hope knowing God's will was leading them to where they needed to be.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and choose to review it. All opinions are my own.
