When Love Blooms Unexpectedly

Though the doctors say her cancer is in remission, Dr. Silvia Metzger feels deep down that her days could be numbered. Following the stirring inside her soul, Silvia leaves her faculty position as a university professor in search of peace and tranquility. She relocates to Lancaster County in Pennsylvania, renting a tiny cabin on the farm of an elderly Amish couple.

Meanwhile, the couple's neighbor, eligible bachelor Joseph Zook, has been doing what he can to help out with the farmwork despite having a lame foot. He wonders if his disability is partly why he's been unable to win the heart of an Amish woman.

As Silvia settles into her new surroundings, she realizes that this community's ways are exactly what she's been looking for and makes a life-changing decision to become Amish. And when Silvia meets Joseph, God plants a seed that could grow into something beautiful.

Experience the incredible power of love and second chances in this charming prequel to Silvia's Rose.

Promising a Rose is the prequel to the Peace in the Valley series about Amish country. I haven't read an Amish book in awhile so I realize how much I missed while I reading this novella. My only complaint is I felt like the author rushed things with the main character. This is an enjoyable book especially for readers of Amish Fiction.
