The Courtship Basket
About the Book:
Years ago, a picnic basket brought two hearts together. For Rachel and Mike, history may be about to repeat itself.
Rachel Fisher is devastated when the young man she’s loved for years leaves her to date her best friend. Her heart is broken, and she has all but given up on love. Determined to keep her mind off the pain, she starts teaching at an Amish school for children with learning disabilities.
Since his father became ill, Mike Lantz has been overwhelmed with the responsibility of providing for his family and caring for his six-year-old brother, John. When John joins Rachel’s class and she learns that his mother is deceased and his father sick, she desperately wants to help the family, even with something as simple as a meal.
With her parents’ old picnic basket, Rachel begins sending food to the Lantz family. As the weeks go by, John’s grades start to improve, and the attraction grows between Rachel and Mike. They can’t deny that their friendship is growing toward something more, but both of them are hesitant to risk a more serious relationship.
The last thing Rachel wants is another heartbreak, and Mike is worried about providing for his loved ones. Will the two be able to reconcile their past hurts with new hope for the future?

The Courtship Basket is Book Two in Amy Clipston’s The Amish Heirloom Series. Let me begin by saying I am a huge fan of Amy’s books and I live in North Carolina also. I have read many of Amy’s books and find myself anxiously waiting for a new one to release. The Courtship Basket releases Tuesday June 28th.
The Courtship Basket will have you laughing and crying all the way through it. One you will not want to put down until you finish it. I enjoyed reading the story of Rachel and getting to know Mike, John and the rest of the characters from this novel. Amy also includes some of the characters from book one, The Forgotten Recipe. We all can relate to the characters in this book.
If you love Amish Fiction, Lancaster County, and Amy Clipston, then this book is for you. I highly recommend reading The Forgotten Recipe first. I promise, you will not be let down. Grab the tissues, tell others you will be unavailable, curl up with The Courtship Basket and read!!
Thank you to the Author and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book for my honest review!!!
