A loaf of fragrant cinnamon bread for breakfast . . . a sweet and creamy custard pie for dessert. In 1912 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery has something to delight locals and visiting Englischer alike. And within this warm, welcoming community, there’s always room for love to grow . . .
Hannah Lapp’s life, like a long-cherished recipe, is satisfying just the way it is. She enjoys whipping up desserts at the bakery, tutoring local children, and socializing with dear friends. One of those friends, Timothy Barkman, has made his interest in Hannah clear, but she’s been in no hurry to change her circumstances.
No sooner does she feel ready to grow closer to hard-working, handsome Timothy than Hannah finds she may have waited too long. Charlene Shetler intends to become Timothy’s fraa. It’s little wonder he’s attracted to such a pretty, forthright young woman, but is the newcomer all that she seems? Only when Hannah is willing to confront some difficult truths can she move bravely toward a life of abiding faith and love . . .
Jebber pleases with this endearing tale about the simmering romantic tensions between two childhood friends, the final installment to her Amish Charm Bakery series (following Ellie's Redemption). In 1913, Hannah Lapp and Timothy Barkman, both around 20 years old, have grown up as neighbors in small Charm, Ohio, and have strong romantic feelings for each other, but neither has found a way to speak up. When Charlene Shelter moves next door to Timothy, her interest and eagerness in pursuing him throws Hannah and Timothy's quiet courtship into disarray as well as Hannah's visits to the Barkmans' house to tutor Timothy's younger brother, who has special needs after being kicked in the head by a horse as a boy. As Timothy weighs his options, he remains hesitant to rush into a relationship and is skeptical about Charlene's interest. Hannah, feeling she has waited too long, whips up her favorite recipes for Timothy and does her best to vocalize her feelings for him something against her disposition and Amish upbringing. Hannah's free-speaking co-workers at the bakery, Ellie and Magdelena, as well as other recurring characters who pop in to guide and encourage Hannah and Timothy, will please fans of the series. This diverting finale works as a standalone and should win Jebber new fans.
