No One Is Ever Too Old to Love Again

Full of faith, hope, and romance, this new series takes you into the Heart of Amish country.

Simon Graber became a widower and a bishop early in life. His focus is solely on his very close-knit Old Order Amish community—not entertaining the idea of marriage, despite what many of the elders think. When sickness comes to Cherry Grove, Kentucky, Simon reaches out into the next community for help. But help is beginning to look a lot like a second chance when Stella Schmucker agrees to offer her vast herbal knowledge to the sick. Can it be that these two, who have been too busy serving others to entertain the idea of love, have met at just the perfect time for an unlikely courtship?

    Wow! Practice makes perfect and this is a prime example. Mindy Steele's twelfth book is a captivating Amish story with a middle-aged midwife who believes in the healing power of herbs and a widowed Amish bishop VERY set in his ways. Dok Stella is resigned to never having her own family and Simon Graber carries grief like a mantle! How could they ever imagine a relationship...together? This may be labeled Amish fiction, but it certainly isn't cookie-cutter Amish fiction. Courting an Amish Bishop reminds us that Amish aren't immune to problems, but their pain is often hidden; they may not wear their hearts on their sleeves, but those hearts still love deeply. This poignant story shows us that love has no age limitations, second chances are possible, and healing can be found in unusual places and unorthodox ways. Grab a copy of Courting an Amish Bishop and be prepared to lose yourself in Cherry Grove and Walnut Ridge, Kentucky! I received a complimentary copy but there was no obligation for a positive review!

    Bishops are people too

    Published by Sally Mander on Mar 31, 2024

    5 stars, Bishops are people too Thinking of a Bishop of an Amish church and community, and I start getting nervous. Bishops are highly respected and full of knowledge, yet they are ordinary men. As much as Simon Gruber tries to fight it, he finds himself pushed back into situations with Stella Schmucker. Stella is a herbalist from a nearby community and Simon's community is in need of a healer. Simon is a widower, Stella has never been married. Stella tries to fight her feelings as well, but when the Lord has something in mind for you, you'd be better off accepting it, rather than fighting against it. Highly Recommend. One of my most favorite bible verses is included in this book. "There is a time for everything under the sun," Ecclesiastes 3:1. Quotable Quotes: "Eight hundred dollars a pound was the going price." Nothing that I could ever afford. "Jewelweed, a preventative and a cure for poison ivy." We use it too. "Pretty as a rose petal." Lovely. My favorite characters are Stella, Ellie, Simon, and Michael.
