I have been fortunate enough to read all three books in the Little Valley Series and think it is easily one of the best Amish series I have read in awhile.
In this installment Ella is struggling with the fact that widower Ivan Stutzman has ask her to marry him so that she can be a mother to his three girls. She doesn't love Ivan but wants to be a mother to the three girls he entrusts her to take care of during the week.She wonders if she should go ahead and marry him in the hopes that loving the

This story is very well written and the author has a vast knowledge of the day to day life of the Amish people. However, the story didn't hold my interest as much as I had expected.

I thought that the romance would be more of a love triangle/square, when actually it was very obvious from the start whom Ella would choose.

If you enjoy reading about taking care of small children, I think you will really like this book. The meatiest story line seemed to be Ella's role as caretaker of Ivan's small gir

This book is part of a series, although I have not read the others enough information is given to know all that is going on.
There has been a lot of heartbreak in loosing loved ones, and now Ella and Ivan Stutzman have both lost. Ella is taking care of Ivan's three little girls and loves them as her own. She hopes to fall in love with Ivan and make a family.
An Englishman enters the picture...Robert wants to become Amish. Ella knows that is not way! Her own brother Eli has gone English.

I was a little disappointed in the story line. I had assumed Ella would have a change of heart in her feelings toward Ivan but while she was resigned to marrying him for the love and well being of his children, she did not have feelings of love for him herself and no matter what she did, the feelings would not come. Until the day a stranger knocked on her door.

I felt the part of the story with Robert was a little too quick as were Ella's feelings for him. I was also confused as to why all of a s

This is the 3rd, and last book of the Little Valley series.

Ella loves the widower Ivan Stutzman's three little girls, and she enjoys caring for them. She is deeply devoted to Ivan, and he wants to propose to her, but her feelings stop short of romantic love. But she considers marriage to him anyway, wondering if what she and Ivan already have will be enough.

Things get complicated when Robert Hayes, an "Englisha" man who wants to become Amish, begins German lessons with Ella. (Learning the German

In the first two books in the series Ella loves her love Aiden, continues to build the house of their dreams, courted by the Bishop Miller and falls for the three children of Preacher Stutzman as she takes care of them after losing their mother.

In the return to Little Valley, Eli, Ella's brother, leaves the Amish to his love and Cora, Ella's sister, must give up her drawing in order to keep her within their faith. Ella loves the three girls but is having a tough time marrying their father witho

In this final book of the trilogy, Jerry Eicher tips his hand by the very title: we know Ella finds love again because that is its title. So is she looking for love in all the wrong places, or maybe love found her when she wasn’t looking? (view spoiler) ...more

Jerry Eicher has written a nice third book in the Little Valley Series. For me, the first and second books were better than this one. I was a bit disappointed in it as some situations seemed to happen too quickly, unbelievably so, and other were drawn out almost to the point of boredom. He added a few twists and turns that kept my interest. Eicher knows the Amish well and has a nice writing style. I would like to see a 4th in this series or a series picking up with one of the other characters.

What do I think about "Ella Finds Love Again"? I LOVED it and in the end I wanted more.
If you have read any of Jerry Eicher's books, you have to read the Little Valley series and follow Ella through her journey of love.

The twists and turns in the book, make you wonder how the book is going to end.

Cant wait to read Jerry's other series and his new series next year.

Great writing. Loved the descriptions, characterization in general, etc. Main character seemed a bit paranoid at times, but I think the first two books of the trilogy may have something to justify that. The one emotional development didn't seem properly supported by what we'd seen and seemed rather abrupt. But I did really enjoy this book.
