A Little Bit of Charm (The New Beginnings Series)
By Mary Ellis
A Little Bit of Charm, the third book in bestselling author Mary Ellis's New Beginnings series, is about fresh starts...and how faith in God and His perfect plans provide the peace and joy all long for. After the death of her parents and then watching both of her older sisters find happiness in homes of their own with husbands who adore them, Rachel King yearns for a new beginning. Her cousin Sarah lives near a thoroughbred stable in Kentucky, and working around beautiful horses is Rachel's dream come true. She leaves Lancaster County to find a job at Twelve Elms Stables and believes God has answered her prayers. And then she meets Jake, an attractive and charming Englisch man. At first she refuses to go out with him, but he eventually convinces her to give him a chance. When Amish men who also wish to date Rachel start encountering strange mishaps, she wonders if Jake is really who he seems to be. What does a young woman do when her heart is pulled in two directions?
God doesn't confine Himself to any one church or Christian denomination but resides in the hearts of his believers.
Why the author wrote this book:
I've always been fascinated with those who leave the Amish faith and how they keep God in their lives. Also I love examining human ambition and how greed can sometimes rule our agendas.
