A Woodland Miracle by Ruth Reid - Review of the second book in an Amish Wonder series

Muscle weakness has left Grace Wagler with a broken body--and her childhood best friend has left her with a broken heart. She can hold her own in the timber camp (and do everything else the other women in Badger Creek can do), but in an Amish district where women outnumber men three to one, marriage is an unlikely prospect for a girl with bad legs.

Ben Eicher just arrived in Michigan from Pinecraft, Florida. When his most recent shenanigans proved too much for his daed's patience, Ben was sent to the Upper Peninsula to work in the lumber camp--and he's neither proud of his behavior nor thrilled about his new home.

But when Ben meets Grace, the struggling young woman quickly piques his curiosity. Of course, the last thing Grace wants is another friendship with a man who pities her. Tired of physical pain and romantic dead ends, Grace is ready to leave Badger Creek for the muscle specialist in Ohio, even if it contradicts her father's wishes . . .and Ben's.

Meanwhile, two dangerous men have found their way into the district. It isn't long before their unsavory plans ensnare Grace and Ben in a chase that will not only endanger their lives . . .but test their love.

It has been so long since I read the first book in this series, I had to go back and read my own review! This one is just as good as I said that one was. Ruth does a great job of telling a story and this one deals with physical problems as well as emotional. I don't think anyone that has had to deal with a disability of some kind, yourself , a family member or close friend. This was an enjoyable book and I am looking forward to the third book in the series, "A Dream of Miracles".
