Book Review: Brush of Angel's Wings By Ruth Reid

Book Description: Rachel and Jordan's feelings for each other are hostile at first, but angelic intervention helps the two discover peace . . . and perhaps love.

The youngest and last unmarried of four sisters, Rachel Hartlzer spends most of her time helping with barn chores. Her role abruptly changes when her father hires Jordan Engles, the son he always wanted.

As Jordan takes on brotherly roles around the house, like escorting Rachel to the youth singing, the enmity between the two grows. Besides, Jordan has one foot in the Englisch world and is determined not to get involved with an Amish girl.

Neither realizes that God has sent an angel, Nathaniel, to help mend their hearts. The angel’s intervention helps them find peace and healing in accepting God's will for their lives.

My Thoughts: Last year I had the pleasure of reading The Promise Of An Angel by Ruth Reid. I loved the book and couldn’t wait to read more by this fantastic author, so I was thrilled when I picked up Brush of Angel's Wings. While I love Amish romances, I would have enjoyed this book regardless.

Ruth Reid again does an excellent job of weaving the story together. By bringing in bits of her previous book and expanding on the story line. Although you do not have to read the previous story to enjoy this one.  This book is a sweet, simple story of two young people who find each other while trying to find themselves and their futures. Rachel and Jordan bring out the best in each other and show us how to do this in our own lives. Your heart follows these two characters and by the end you are celebrating with them as they find their way.

This is an amazing Story written about the Amish and with a twist about Angels. I have honestly never read books that is written like Ruth Reid's books and I have read plenty of Amish fiction. (AS you can tell by my previous review) I highly recommend this book and I intend to read all of "A Heaven on Earth" series.

Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
