MY REVIEW:

ELLIE’S REDEMPTION is the second book in the Amish Charm Bakery series by Molly Jebber. It is the story of Ellie Graber and how she is dealing with returning home to her Amish homestead, not once but twice. She keeps this secret from the Amish man, Joel, who is pursuing her and a man she really likes but feels if he knew her secret, he would leave her. He refuses to listen to the gossip and his mother constantly puts her down. Her daughter left the faith three years ago and she holds that against Ellie.

Molly Jebber sure knows how to make the reader feel as if they are right there at the kitchen table with the family dealing with all their troubles and ELLIE’S REDEMPTION is exactly that! She made me sad, then the next moment I was smiling and giggling out loud! You can never go wrong with a Molly Jebber book if you are a fan of the Amish genre. All of her characters feel genuine and relatable and put your emotions on one heck of a roller coaster ride. As you are reading, you will find yourself cheering for all of them, praying they can work out their problems and be happy once again. You will also wonder how much heartache a family can stand before it completely breaks down and splits.

ELLIE’S REDEMPTION is a heart tugging story filled with grief, loneliness, heartbreak, and love that will hold you hostage until the very last page. Once I started this heartwarming story, it was very hard to put down! I really prayed that Joel would be able to convince Ellie that she wasn’t damaged and deserved to be loved and cherished. Molly Jebber isn’t afraid to write about subjects out of the norm as far as the Amish genre goes. Oh, as a warning to the reader, keep the tissues handy and do not read the ending in a public place unless you don’t mind crying in front of strangers! I’m so excited to continue catching up on all of Molly Jebber’s previous books.
