Review: “Living in Harmony” by Mary Ellis

As I read this story I kept thinking…they should leave, go back home. But author Mary Ellis made John, Amy and Nora stick it out and in the end everything comes together. The story was well written and I enjoyed it a great deal. If you are a fan of Amish romance, I suggest reading Living in Harmony.

Back cover:

Amy King—young, engaged, and Amish—faces difficult challenges in her life when she suddenly loses both of her parents in a house fire. Her fiancé, John Detweiler, persuades her and her sister Nora to leave Lancaster County and make a new beginning with him in Harmony, Maine, where he has relatives who can help the women in their time of need.

John’s brother Thomas and sister-in-law Sally readily open their home to the three newcomers. Wise beyond his years, Thomas, a minister in the district, refuses to marry Amy and John upon their arrival, suggesting instead a period of adjustment and counseling. During this time Amy discovers an aunt who was shunned. She wishes to reconnect with her, but this puts a strain on her relationship with John.

Can John and Amy find a way to live in happily in Harmony before making a lifetime commitment to one another?
