Ellie's Redemption: The Amish Charm Bakery Book 2 By Molly Jebber

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogger Program and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own. 


Book Description: 

1912, Charm, Ohio

Ellie Graber is determined to restore her bad reputation in Charm, Ohio. She regrets leaving Amish life and the danger and heartache she caused her family and friends. Ellie loves working with Liza, and her best friend and cousin, Hannah, at Liza’s Amish Charm Bakery, attends church, and obeys Amish law, but the gossip about her past life won’t stop. Joel Wenger’s deep blue eyes tell her he cares for her, but she suspects his parents have warned him to stay away from her. Joel wants to trust Ellie’s changed but his sister, Maryann, who left Amish life broke their hearts. Will Joel ignore his parents and friends, face their anger and ridicule, and give her a chance?


My Thoughts:

Ellie's Redemption is the latest book in Molly Jebber's series, The Amish Charm Bakery series, and it is very good. I had the pleasure of reading the first book in this series so I was so excited to have the opportunity to read Ellie's Redemption. Ellie comes back to the Amish community in Charm, Ohio after being in the English world. Now she is subject to malicious gossip by other Amish which really doesn't help Ellie's feelings of inadequacy. Molly Jebber shows readers that the things we deal with in the English world does happen in the Amish community. No one is immune to these behaviors. I found the characters relatable, real people dealing with real issues. I definitely could relate best with Ellie. Her feelings of inadequacy and low self esteem really hit home for me. Also being misjudged and hurt by gossip. I found Ellie's faith in God and her friends admirable. I really enjoy Molly Jebber's style of writing. She makes you feel like you are right there in Charm, Ohio. She writes with authority about Charm, Ohio, The Amish, our world in 1912, the dangers of gossip, and finding love. This book can be read as a stand alone. I definitely recommend this book and series to anyone who likes Amish Fiction, you will not be disappointed. I give this book 4 STARS.
