After the death of her husband, Hannah Brown is determined to make a new life with her sister's family. But when she sells her farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and moves her sheep to Ohio, the wool unexpectedly begins to fly. Simon, her deacon brother-in-law, finds just about everything about Hannah vexing. So no one is more surprised than the deacon when his own brother, Seth, shows an interest in the beautiful young widow.

Skillful writing from this new author of Inspirational Amish Fiction
If you are a fan of this genre or just checking it out for the first time,I don't believe anyone will be disappointed in 'A Widow's Hope' from Mary Ellis. A very engaging story and well developed characters will make this book one that is hard to put down. I'm thrilled to see that the next book continues with characters from this one,Hanna,Seth and Emma.

I highly recommend 'A Widow's Hope',and wish much continued success to this author Mary Ellis.

Never Far from Home (The Miller Family Series) by Mary Ellis

This Is A Great 'Amish Themed' Series With Some Nice Original Story Elements
Never Far From Home is a wonderful continuation of (The Miller Family Series). I loved both the first book ,A Widow's Hope,and this second book. I am just sorry that I do not have the third book"The Way To A Man's Heart" here and ready to read!

I am very,very pleased with this author's skill at developing her characters and her ability to draw me into her stories.

I liked that she explained the differences between the New Order and Old Order Amish sects.

I live near this Amish area of Ohio,and I enjoy reading about the towns in these counties that I have visited.

I think part of what make this series so good is that the author writes such believable situations and how she includes the characters we have come to know into each book,where in too many series we never see some of the characters we enjoy,ever mentioned again in succeeding books.

I really enjoyed watching the romance develop between a Non-Amish hunk James and Amish teen Emma Miller,and also the romance between her friend and fellow Old Order teen Sarah and an Amish friend of James' Sam, who is from the New Order Sect.

I also very much enjoyed the side stories and getting to know Emma's siblings and their stories.

This is a book that was very hard to put down,and I read it until finished at 3AM!
