About the Book
Young-at-heart octogenarians Anna and Felty Helmuth never miss the chance to find a perfect match for one of their grandchildren. And when their beloved Cassie returns to Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, Anna has a feeling they might soon have a doctor in the family…
Though Cassie Coblenz left her Amish community to go to college, Mammi and Dawdi’s farm will always feel like home. It’s the ideal place for an extended study break—at least until her grandmother’s handsome Englisch doctor becomes a regular distraction. Zach Reynolds is the kind of heartbreaker Cassie has learned to avoid, no matter how charming he may be.
Unlike every woman Zach has met in recent years, Cassie doesn’t fall at his feet. Strong, generous, beautiful within and without —she’s everything he could want. Yet the gulf between them deepens when a tragedy shakes his faith. Now the good doctor has one goal—to become a man who could be worthy of Cassie’s love…

Huckleberry Hearts is the first novel that I have read by Jennifer Beckstrand and I loved it. I could not stop reading, I would have finished the book in one day but I needed to feed my family!! (lol) I absolutely love Amish Fiction and Huckleberry Hearts made me love it even more. In this novel, we meet Cassie, who left the Amish lifestyle to go to college, who has came home to take care of her Mammi (grandmother) who is having a spot removed off of her foot. Cassie loves her grandparents and loves what the Amish is all about, she just knew she was destined for so much more. Her mamm (mother) and brother Norman doesn’t like that she has left and don’t care for the clothes she wears. Norman is always putting Cassie down.
Dr. Zach Reynolds, Anna’s doctor, is a handsome young man who Anna plans on fixing up with her lovely granddaughter, Cassie. Zach laid eyes on Cassie and that is all it took for him to start falling head over heals in love with her. But Cassie has no interest in the Doctor, because of something that happened four years ago. Zach continues to per-sue Cassie. Will Zach ever get Cassie to love him? Will Cassie learn to forgive? Will her family ever accept her for who she really is?
I highly recommend Huckleberry Hearts and proudly give it 5 out 5 stars!
