About the Book

Book: Two Suitors for Anna
Author: Molly Jebber
Genre: Amish Historical Romance
Release Date: January 31, 2017

In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for and a new, very different future…

Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm, the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to share…

Praise for Molly Jebber’s Change of Heart

My Review

It was a pleasure to get to know Anna Plank and her family, who had been introduced in the previous Keepsake Pocket Quilt novel.  They were a close-knit family, who had by necessity come to rely on each other even more after the death of Mr. Plank.  Anna's sweet disposition, and the family's dedication to each other and to God, drew Daniel Bontrager to her upon their first meeting.  But Anna was being courted by Noah Schwartz, a fine, hard-working craftsman, and had a choice to make.

I appreciated how the two men, although in competition for Anna's heart, were both honorable and civil toward each other.  The Planks, Noah, and Daniel all respectfully submitted themselves to the oversight of the bishop when problems arose that would affect their Amish community.  I enjoyed the plot twists that happened throughout the book.

Amish fiction fans will enjoy this book.  It is the third book in the series, but reads well as a stand-alone novel.

I received a digital copy of this book from the author, via Celebrate Lit, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

What prompted Two Suitors for Anna?

Have you had to choose between two men you love? Or maybe a friend? I gave Anna this dilemma and added to her turmoil by throwing in a bundle of twists and turns to the story.

Noah proposes to Anna, and he takes her rejection as hesitation and leaves town. Daniel moves to Berlin and offers her friendship which is blossoming into something more, when Noah returns and asks her forgiveness and another chance. I hope you enjoy it!
