A Courtship on Huckleberry Hill Blog Tour/Giveaway


My Review:

I love Jennifer Beckstrand’s Huckleberry Hill books. They bring you to a place that you want to live. While reading these books, it feels like you there with the characters and seeing everything happen. A Courtship on Huckleberry Hill is no different. This is just one of the books from The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series. Don’t be alarmed, all these books can be read as a stand-alone or in any order.

In this one Elsie Helmuth, the granddaughter of Anna and Felty Helmuth, is a school-teacher who is determined not to get in trouble. She will do what she has to do to keep this job, even if it means not letting the brother of one of her students sabotage it. Wally Sensing is disabled, Elsie wants to help him see his potential. His brother Sam, is hot-headed and left to take care of his widowed, sick mother and Wally. Sam sees a change in Wally and is happy. But can he fix his mistakes.

I’m not going to give too much away!! There is so much to this book that you will want to find out on your own. I encourage you to pick a copy up today. You will enjoy all that happens on Huckleberry Hill.

I received a copy of this book for free, a favorable review was not required, all opinions expressed here are my own.

About the Book

Title: A Courtship on Huckleberry Hill

Author: Jennifer Beckstrand

Genre: Christian Amish Fiction

Release Date: December 26, 2017

Elsie Helmuth’s plain-spoken ways got her in trouble once before, so she needs to make a good impression at her new teaching job. But she’s not about to let disabled student Wally Sensenig work below his potential. And she definitely won’t put up with his hot-headed older brother sabotaging her efforts, no matter how handsome he is. . .

Sam is nearly at the end of his rope caring for his ailing, widowed mother, working their farm, and raising his siblings. He’ll admit Elsie’s ideas are bringing Wally out of his angry shell—but why does she have to be as stubborn as she is pretty? Yet as it turns out, Elsie has taught Sam something about himself as well. And he’ll do whatever it takes to make up for his mistakes—and win her heart forever.

Guest Post from Jennifer Beckstrand

I have a very special place in my heart for teachers. My dad was a high school math teacher. My mother taught second grade for over twenty years. My son-in-law taught choir in high school, and my daughter taught seventh-grade science. Another daughter taught American history labs at the university and still another daughter taught classes for a youth summer program.

Elsie Stutzman is a dedicated teacher who was dismissed from her last teaching job in Ohio and is trying to make a fresh start and a good impression in Bonduel, Wisconsin. Unfortunately one of her students, Wally Sensenig, is making things difficult for her, and Wally’s hot-headed older brother seems determined to get her fired. But Elsie is a dedicated teacher, too stubborn to back down and too steadfast to give up on anybody.

Elsie’s grandparents, Anna and Felty Helmuth, have other plans for her. They want her to fall in love with one of the local boys, but they’re finding it a little difficult to get the two young people together.

Teachers have an immense impact on our lives. We all remember a favorite elementary school teacher who inspired a love of learning or a high school teacher who encouraged us to reach for greatness. One of my favorite teachers was Mrs. Zobell, who taught ninth grade English. I distinctly remember her reading “The Outsiders” out loud to our class. She had a way of making great books and great stories come to life, and she sparked a love of reading (and writing) that I will always be grateful for. The teacher who had the most impact on my life is my dad. He helped me through Calculus in high school and inspired me to major in math in college.

I hope we will take the time this month to thank the teachers in our lives for all they do for us and all they do for our kids.

Who was one of your favorite teachers and why?
