My heart was breaking so much for Grace and all she was going through. I wanted to give her a great big hug and at the same time, shake her a little and make her see what was waiting for her if she would just open up her eyes and heart. I get that Grace is resentful of Isaac and wants to train the horses on her own, but will she really go against her father’s wishes? THE AMISH COWBOY’S HOMECOMING is the second book in the Honey Brook series. That being said, it can easily be read as a stand alone.

I appreciate the clean and wholesome family life that Amish books have. Grace ‘s family is very supportive, which is not always the case in Amish stories. I mean, who has ever heard of an Amish woman training horses? The ties to the past that help shape the future is just the right touch. THE AMISH COWBOY’S HOMECOMING is a quick and entertaining read, and you really won’t know until the end what happens.

All Isaac wants to do is put down roots somewhere and raise his daughter the way she deserves. Grace is not very receptive to Isaac at first but over time, their feelings for each other grow. The ending was well worth the wait and as a result I cannot wait for the rest of the Honey Brook novels because I don’t want to give these characters up.

The twists and turns in Grace and Isaac’s lives pop up when you least expect them. Ophelia pulls you right in and makes you feel as if you are right there experiencing all the heart wrenching feelings her characters are. When I hear Ophelia London has a new book coming out, I will be running to it. She has quickly become one of my favorite Amish authors, and I will devour her stories very quickly. I love how her THE AMISH COWBOY’S HOMECOMING allowed me to escape my reality and puts me right in the middle of Amish country.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from TLC and Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


What happens when a traditional horse whisperer clashes with an unconventional trainer within the charming Amish community of Honey Brook?

Grace Zook has always held a talent with horses, ever since she was a child growing up in her quaint Amish village of Honey Brook. Now, as an adult, she’s become a master trainer—but still struggles to prove to her father that she is worthy of taking over the family’s horse farm. With a fiery new stallion coming soon, Grace knows this challenge is her chance to prove she can finally take the reins.

When widower and horse whisperer Isaac King is offered the lead training job on a new farm out of town, he’s thrilled to finally make a name for himself and provide some permanent roots for his young daughter. But not only is the stallion seemingly unbreakable, so, too, is the owner’s headstrong daughter Grace, who has drastically different ideas about how to handle the impossible horse. Yet somehow, he can’t seem to get the confident, beautiful woman out of his mind…even though as his boss’s daughter, she is completely off-limits.

There’s too much at stake for Isaac to gamble his future on Grace…even though suddenly, he can’t imagine one without her.

  1. Wonderful review, Susan! I recently read a cosy mystery set in an Amish community and I was quickly fascinated by Amish cultures and lifestyle! I’ll definitely check out this book!
