An unplanned pregnancy. An absent father. Can love really endure all things?
Danielle Kent is anything but Amish. But as destiny would have it, she has fallen in love with an Amish man.
Now she's 18, pregnant, and hopeful that the child's Amish father--Matthew Lapp--will do the right thing and marry her. She knows Matthew plans to leave his Colorado settlement for a life in the Englisch world. But that plan never included a baby.
When Matthew walks away from her and their unborn child, she has nowhere to turn. Her unlikely friendship with Levi offers some comfort--yet they have so little in common. This wasn't the plan she had for her life, and she has never felt so alone. She doesn't want to be pregnant. Doesn't want to be Amish. Doesn't want to trust God.
God has plans beyond what her mind can imagine . . . loving plans to show a lost young woman that His love never fails but endures forever.
"Wiseman is among the best at writing moving Amish fiction."--Booklist review of The Wonder of His Love
Editorial ReviewNo editorial review at this time.
Danielle perched on the edge of the tub. She looked at her watch, then at the pregnancy test in her trembling hand. In two minutes, she'd know if she was going to have a baby.
She bit her bottom lip as she tapped a foot against the white tile floor, her heart beating faster than normal. Please be a blue minus sign.
But it was barely a minute later when a positive, pink cross began to appear. She squeezed her eyes closed and tried to will it to blue. Please, please ... I can't be pregnant.
She'd been seeing Matthew for four months, but they'd only been intimate one time. No one gets pregnant the first time.
She slowly opened her eyes and swallowed hard at the realization that she and Matthew were going to be parents. After giving it a few minutes to sink in, Danielle tried to focus on the positive. Laying a hand across her stomach, she held her breath and tried to envision the tiny life growing inside of her. It would be a lot to take on since they were both only eighteen, but they were in love. They'd said the words to each other only once, but Danielle was sure he was the right guy for her. ... view entire excerpt...
Discussion QuestionsLevi meets three people in his dreams. One of them is his father, and he doesn’t recognize the other two. Is the dream image of Levi’s earthly father representative of his heavenly Father? If so, who were the other two people that Levi met on the path?
Danielle and Levi are best friends when they get married. What if Danielle and Levi’s relationship had never progressed past that of friendship? How important is romance in our lives, regarding our lifetime mate?
Danielle still loves her mother despite her abusive ways, even though she says several times that she hates her. Have you ever been in a situation when you thought “why me, Lord?” only to find out way down the road that these bad experiences ultimately brought you to a much better place?
