Hannah's Courage

By Molly Jebber


A loaf of fragrant cinnamon bread for breakfast . . . a sweet and creamy custard pie for dessert. In 1912 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery has something to delight locals and visiting Englischer alike. And within this warm, welcoming community, there’s always room for love to grow . . .

Hannah Lapp’s life, like a long-cherished recipe, is satisfying just the way it is. She enjoys whipping up desserts at the bakery, tutoring local children, and socializing with dear friends. One of those friends, Timothy Barkman, has made his interest in Hannah clear, but she’s been in no hurry to change her circumstances.

No sooner does she feel ready to grow closer to hard-working, handsome Timothy than Hannah finds she may have waited too long. Charlene Shetler intends to become Timothy’s fraa. It’s little wonder he’s attracted to such a pretty, forthright young woman, but is the newcomer all that she seems? Only when Hannah is willing to confront some difficult truths can she move bravely toward a life of abiding faith and love . . .

Book Takeaway:

There are times in our lives when we must be courageous to face our conflicts, mistakes, difficult people, and in making tough choices. We can't put these things on the back burner without consequences and in some instances, rewards.


Year Title Description

Why the author wrote this book:

Hannah doesn't like change, and it may have cost her the love of her life. Courage isn't easy to muster for things we must face in our lives. I wanted to show how Hannah makes mistakes, struggles to confront difficult people, and to make the right decisions. But she's worried it may be too late. We all grow and learn from our mistakes. I wanted a character we can relate to and root for.
