About the Book:


Linda is no stranger to hardship. Now she dares to hope for a chance at love and a new beginning.

As the sole survivor of a buggy accident that left her orphaned at age four, Linda Zook was reluctantly raised by her Uncle Reuben. She longs to be worthy of someone, but the lasting trauma of her injuries and embittered upbringing have destroyed her self-worth. When Hannah Peterson asks her to work at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast, she’s finally able to realize some confidence.

Aaron Ebersol left the Amish community seventeen years ago when he could no longer bear the restrictions or the constant tension with his father. Despite years of unanswered letters to his parents and the roots he’s put down in Missouri, Aaron rushes back to the Amish community of Paradise, Pennsylvania, after receiving word of his mother’s stroke. Hesitant to get too close to the family he was once a part of, he decides to stay at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast. Talking with Linda allows him to explore his feelings about his family and his position in the Amish community.

As Linda and Aaron open up to each other, their feelings for one another turn into more than friendship, and Aaron must make a decision about his future as an Amish man.

Can Linda and Aaron forgive the family members who have deceived and forsaken them? And will Aaron be able to convince Linda that she is worthy of his love?

My Review:


A Simple Prayer is book 4 in the Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel Series by author Amy Clipston. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Clipston and I loved it, I have already purchased the first three in the series and can’t wait to read those. Ms. Clipston has done her research on the Amish and has to be one of the top Amish Fiction writers I have read.


A Simple Prayer is the story of Linda Zook, her upbringing and how she longs to be worthy of someone. At the age of four, Linda and her family were in a buggy accident and she was the only survivor left to be raised by her Uncle Reuben. Her life hasn’t been easy dealing with the injuries she sustained from the accident and from the upbringing she received. Feeling worthless until her friend ask her to work at the Heart of Paradise Bed and Breakfast, this could be a turning point for Linda.


Aaron Ebersol has returned to Paradise, Pennsylvania upon hearing of his mother’s stroke. Aaron left the Amish community seventeen years ago and has decided to stay at the Bed and Breakfast. Aaron and Linda cross paths and realize they have a lot in common.


What will happen between Aaron and Linda? Can they forgive the ones who have hurt them? Will they find love?


This is such a great book; you definitely will not put it down!!! Must Read for all Amish Fiction lovers!!
