A bright new voice shares a tender love story set in the rolling green fields of Ohio Amish country.

After the death of her husband, Hannah Brown is determined to make a new life with her sister’s family. But when she sells her farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and moves with her sheep to Ohio, the wool unexpectedly starts to fly. Her deacon brother–in–law finds just about everything about Hannah vexing. When his widower brother shows interest in the young and beautiful widow, the deacon turns to prayer for guidance.

Hannah thought she could never love again, until she meets the strong, gentle farmer. Unfortunately, Seth Miller’s only interest is in Hannah’s sheep. He is content in his bachelor state and slow to recognize his daughter’s need for a new mother. Yet God offers Seth the perfect solution to their problems if he could only open his heart again…and love.

A Word from the Author

“I hope you’ll enjoy Hannah’s story as she leaves Lancaster County and begins life anew with her sister’s family. Bringing along one hundred sheep doesn’t make things easier for the far-too-independent widow. Most of us have leaped-before-looking once or twice. Hannah’s tale reminds us that with hope and faith in God, all things are possible—even finding love in a strange new land.”
Mary Ellis, author of A Widow's Hope

“I felt the story was superb. I fell in love with Hannah's story from the first page. You feel for her situation, lost love, and no real hope of having a child of her own. It was a very pleasant page-turner. It was one of those stories you can't put down, and don't want to end. You feel a great loss when it's over and want to return to it. Mary's writing flows so well and I enjoyed learning all the words that the Amish use in everyday life. I enjoyed A Widow's Hope very much and anxiously await Mary's next book.”
Marie Lawrie

“From start to finish, A Widow's Hope definitely holds the reader's interest. Mary Ellis provides us an insight into, not only the beliefs and traditions of the Amish population, but she also gives us a glimpse into the feelings and emotions of the Amish. How well-written! Thanks, Mary, for sharing the Miller family with us.”
