Review: Beneath the Summer Sun by Kelly Irvin

Jennie Troyer knows it’s time to remarry. Can she overcome a painful secret and open her heart to love?

It’s been four years since Jennie’s husband died in a farming accident. Long enough that the elders in her Amish community think it’s time to marry again for the sake of her seven children. What they don’t know is that grief isn’t holding her back from a new relationship. Fear is. A terrible secret in her past keeps her from moving forward.

Mennonite book salesman Nathan Walker stops by Jennie’s farm whenever he’s in the area. Despite years of conversation and dinners together, she never seems to relax around him. He knows he should move on, but something about her keeps drawing him back.

Meanwhile, Leo Graber nurtures a decades-long love for Jennie, but guilt plagues him—guilt for letting Jennie marry someone else and guilt for his father’s death on a hunting trip many years ago. How could anyone love him again—and how could he ever take a chance to love in return?

In this second book in the Every Amish Season series, three hearts try to discern God’s plan for the future—and find peace beneath the summer sun.

Review: I enjoyed this book a great deal. I’m not a big fan of love triangles, but Ms. Irvin gave us all three POVs, so it wasn’t immediately obvious who Jennie would end up with. I happen to think she chose the right man, but hey, no spoilers here, so you’ll have to read it to find out who that man is.

I received this book from the publisher/author for the purpose of review. I was not paid in any way and the above is my honest opinion.

Rating: 5 roses


Happy reading,
