Description

Interrupting the ordered routine of the Mecosta County Amish settlement, an angelic visitor awakens Judith to a new faith.

All Judith Fischer ever wanted is to marry within her community and raise a family. She longs for the day when her parents will allow Levi Plank to officially court her.

But on the day Judith suspects Levi will ask her parent's permission, her younger brother Samuel has an accident under her charge. Rushing to Samuel's aid, Judith spies a strange man helping him; a man she later believes was an angel.

When she shares her conviction with her family and close friends, she is shocked to find that no one believes her, including Levi. In the days following the accident, the angel visits Judith with information that may guide her down the path of faith, should she choose to follow.

As her community slowly distances themselves, only one person is willing to stand up for her?the bishop's son, Andrew Lapp. But can he convince the settlement to listen to her? With a show of faith that flies in the face of her conservative upbringing, can Judith hold strong to the promise that there are even greater things in store for those who believe in God's miracles?

        April 11, 2011
        First-time novelist Reid taps into two fan bases—Amish fiction and angel tales—in this lovely story that seamlessly blends both worlds. Judith Fischer is the first to reach her brother, Samuel, after a dramatic fall, and she sees a tall Englischer kneeling near him. The stranger disappears, but Judith later meets him repeatedly, coming to understand he's an angel. The Amish community doesn't believe, as Judith does, that Samuel will walk again; instead, they turn on her for her talk of angels. Only Andrew Lapp befriends her as Judith struggles with her faith, her wayward sister, Martha, and the chaos of her feelings for Levi Plank. Judith's dreams reveal the choices she must make, but can she face the ire of her Old Order Amish community in light of what the angel reveals? Will she leave her Michigan home, and perhaps her dreams for the future, and so avoid shaming her family? Reid has written a fine novel that provides, as its series title claims, a bit of "heaven on earth."

        Judith Fischer belongs to an Old Order Amish community in Michigan. Following an accident at a barn raising, she tries to convince the other members of her community that she has been visited by an angel. Most, including her fiance Levi Plank, demand that she stop spinning tales. Only one man believes her. As Andrew Lapp listens to Judith talk about the visitation and the dreams she is having, romantic feelings grow. Meanwhile, Judith's younger sister takes advantage of Judith's new oddball status to pursue Levi Plank. VERDICT This first novel is an odd mix of Amish fiction and the angel novels that have recently flooded the market. The characters are well-drawn and the romance is enjoyable, but the premise may put off traditional readers of Amish fiction. Readers interested in angel stories might be better served by Jill Marie Landis's "Irish Angel" series.
