A Dream of Miracles

A Dream of Miracles
by Ruth Reid

Amish widow Mattie vows never to love again . . . until a suspicious outsider with a shadowy past comes crashing into her fragile world.

Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son’s mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.

Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won’t rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo’s worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.

When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible—not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo’s dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future . . . or will she simply run away?

My Thoughts: 3 Stars

A Dream of Miracles was certainly different than a lot of Amish fiction that I have read – combining the English world with the Amish world – and while I enjoyed the story, it is not one that is overly memorable for me.

The story was well written, and it didn’t drag like a lot of books tend to do, but it simply didn’t strike a chord with me and make me say, “Wow! That was a great book!” Know what I mean?

I would tell you which part I really did enjoy, but if I do that, it might spoil the book for you.

If you are looking for a light read with a little bit of mystery, you would probably enjoy A Dream of Miracles, especially if you are a fan of Amish fiction.

Until next time,
