This is only the second Amish/Christian romance I have read and I have to admit I will definitely read more of them. In a world where love is complicated and filled with a lot of betrayal and pain it's refreshing to read a heart warming romance that is purely based on the feelings involved.
Having said that, that wasn't the only reason I like reading these sorts of romances. I find there's something comforting about reading about a lifestyle that is much more people focused. In a world of techno

Christian Romance is not my normal genre of choice. So, I began reading this book with an open mind, but not overly optimistic mindset. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. A Hope Springs Christmas is the 7th book in the Brides of Amish County series by Patricia Davids. I can say with absolute surety that it doesn’t have to be read within the series as I have never read any of the others and didn’t feel at anytime out of the loop.

Sarah Wyse dreads the Christmas season. She has lost everyone that she

Honestly, I have not read much Christian Romance, but I am always open to something new and that was how I approached this book and I was glad I did. It was a perfect clean romance for the holidays.

Sarah Wyse dreads Christmas, as she has lost everyone that she loves during the season through the years including her husband. After the shop that she works at closes for the season, Sarah is stuck at home trying to keep her tho

"A Hope Springs Christmas" by Patricia Davids gets 5 stars from me.This story made me want to cry and laugh and it almost made me want to grab a couple of teenage boys and shake so sense into them. This story is the 7th in the Brides Of Amish Country, but it can also be a stand alone novel but after reading this one I want to read all the rest and in the notes at the back of the book the authors writes that she hopes more stories are coming to this series. Sarah (Amish) is a widow who has used h ...more

A Hope Springs Christmas is the the seventh book in the Brides of Amish County series. But works very well as a stand alone. Which is what it was for me.

Sarah is a widow, and doesn't think she will ever find love again, in fact she doesn't want to. She's afraid to love again, afraid because to here it seems that everyone she loves is taken away from her too soon.

Levi, a bachelor, to some believe he is destined to be an 'old boy'. Lives and works across the way from Sarah, renting out the place

------ I received this book from Netgalley and the publisher for my honest review------


I found this to be a very delightful story. I find the fact that Sarah is trying to find a wife for Levi to be quite touching. Sarah is trying to help out her friend Grace, because Grace doesn't want to get married and leave her brothers to fend for themselves. Grace wants her eldest brother to have a wife to take care of him and her other brothers. Who need a stern hand themselves to help them grow up. Sarah

We first met Sarah in the Faith and Adrian story, but she also appeared in the Karen and Jonathan story, but only in glimpses, so getting to know more about Sarah Wyse was a treat indeed. Her and I could totally be friends, and I know a thing or two about letting fear get in the way of living, I'd like to think I learned a valuable lesson by reading this book. I also have a lot in common with Levi, as he is very shy and unless I am comfortable around someone, I tend to be painfully shy.

What’s not to like about this book! There is drama, humor and a bit of romance too! I am not a big fan of Amish fiction but do occasionally read one. This book was very good at drawing you into the story and keeping you interested. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I liked the characters and thought they were well developed and easy to enjoy! Sarah was likeable and you could not help but cheer for her. The main male character was Levi. He too was enjoyable and you root for him right from the start. I ...more

Lovely story about Sarah and Levi. Sarah is a widow who lives on her own. The community wants and expects her to remarry. Levi dreams about moving to a new community in Colorado, but is bound by his family responsibilities at home -- particularly the raising of his younger twin brothers. When his sister goes away to think over her relationship with her beau, Levi needs help corraling his brothers. Sarah steps in to help.

Enjoyable Read!

I loved this book. While I knew what would happen in the end, it still was a delightful read to me.

Levi Beachy can’t remember a time when he didn’t love Sarah Wyse. He knew her heart belonged to another. Levi had plans to move out of the area but because of a promise he made to Sarah’s husband he wasn’t able to move away.

Is there happiness to be found for Sarah and Levi? Will Sarah found a suitable wife for Levi? Will Sarah open her heart to love?

Love a good Christmas read.
Love a good Amish fiction read.
Love a good second-chance-at-love read.
And the author delivers on all three in this book.

There is Sarah who loved her first husband deeply. So deeply that she has not married within a year or so after his death. Then there is Levi, Sarah’s husband’s best friend who made a promise to that friend shortly before his death.

The story could have taken place at any time during the year but having the setting be at Christmas adds a piquancy w

This is a typical format of a Mills & Boon book you knew who was going to be with who even before you read it but it a nice easy story

I wasn't too happy with the way the twins was dealt with at their age they would have known better & after their last prank then i think more should have been done

The ending was okay but didn't fully deal with the people in the book i guess the author will possible have more to write about

It wasn't a great book but a good book i still wanting to finish it

Amish romances are always sweet and inspiring and this one is no exception. Levi and Sarah love each other and it's clear very early on in the story but Sarah's lost one husband and feels that everyone she loves leaves her mostly through death. Levi is shy and has no confidence when it comes to his love for Sarah. Something has to take hold for them both and it is interesting reading how they come to terms with each other. A lovely holiday story.

Good story. I thought it was a little drawn out. I wish the author would put a touch of mystery in her stories.

Inspirational clean romance. "Fractured" family facing trials & tribulations- parents died & eldest left to raise siblings (and all the pranks involved). Neighbor dealing with her own loss. Heartwarming. Characters meshed well together. Fast paced story, I completed this in one sitting. Looking forward to reading more of the Brides of Amish Country series. Recommended.
