Review: Change of Heart by Molly Jebber

By Musing the Manuscript - 6:00 am


A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance to discover love's true way home…
Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith's strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She's never been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt's wealthy mother is determined her son will marry a society woman.

With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances. . .

Rating: 3/5

It took me a bit to get into Change of Heart. I found the way it was written and the conversational patterns of the characters to be overly stilted, which was a bit off putting for me. It made me wonder whether English was the author's second language. But, once I got past that, the story was well written and the primary characters were fairly well rounded and developed.

To write much more than is in the book's description would take away from the reader's experience of the story and give away critical plot twists. All in all, this book was an enjoyable read and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Amish Fiction.
