Book 2 of the Amish Wonders series
For a disadvantaged young woman and a displaced young man, a lasting love is going to take more than chance—it’s going to take a miracle.
Muscle weakness has left Grace Wagler with a broken body—and her childhood best friend has left her with a broken heart. She can hold her own in the timber camp (and do everything else the other women in Badger Creek can do), but in an Amish district where women outnumber men three to one, marriage is an unlikely prospect for a girl with bad legs.
Ben Eicher just arrived in Michigan from Pinecraft, Florida. When his most recent shenanigans proved too much for hisdaed’s patience, Ben was sent to the Upper Peninsula to work in the lumber camp—and he’s neither proud of his behavior nor thrilled about his new home.
But when Ben meets Grace, the struggling young woman quickly piques his curiosity. Of course, the last thing Grace wants is another friendship with a man who pities her. Tired of physical pain and romantic dead ends, Grace is ready to leave Badger Creek for the muscle specialist in Ohio, even if it contradicts her father’s wishes . . . and Ben’s.
Meanwhile, two dangerous men have found their way into the district. It isn’t long before their unsavory plans ensnare Grace and Ben in a chase that will not only endanger their lives . . . but test their love.
What Readers are saying
“It’s a very powerful story, with characters so convincing I felt as if I knew them. I have to say, I am very thankful I don’t know some of them. How does Ruth write such negative, violent scenes without the harsh cursing and unrealistic actions that so many authors add to their stories? Well, that’s no secret – she’s just supremely talented! If you enjoy reading Amish novels, read A Woodland Miracle… you’ll be as amazed as I was!” ~ Goodreads review
“This story grabbed my attention from the very start. I was on the edge of my seat almost the whole book through. There is just the right amount of compassion, spunk, love, and suspense all the way through. Never a dull moment! Very well written!! So looking forward to any other books in the series. Get your copy today! Bravo, job well done! 5 stars!” ~ Goodreads review
“I can’t even describe how fantastic this book was! Ruth Reid has a knack for pulling you in to a story and not letting you go until the very end. The plot was engaging, thrilling, and so good! The trouble that comes to the small community at Badger Creek is completely unexpected. Even though the action starts at the halfway point, the plot is still engaging up to that point. It gives you a better hint into the lives of the main characters.” ~ Faith * Love * Books
“Ruth Reid’s story grabs you fast and the builds as a spiraling pace. Amish storytelling the likes of which you no longer get from some top-selling Amish genre authors whose publishers want speed, not quality. Readers will empathize with well developed characters quickly.” ~ Amazon Review
“A Woodland Miracle was all its back cover said it would be and just what I wanted! Unique Amish characters and setting (which has to be getting pretty rare in this genre), plenty of tension, and a suspense element that didn’t wait until the very end to make itself well and clearly known (kudos to the author for that!).” ~ Amazon Review
