Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard - Review of the first book in the Promise Lodge series

It's a better life, a fresh start--and a heaven-sent second chance. Founded by three Amish sisters determined to put misfortune behind them, Promise Lodge is a colony where faith's abiding promise can be fulfilled--and love can make all things new...

Energetic widow Mattie Bender Schwartz is working day and night to get Promise Lodge going. she's also hoping the change will help her son Noah's heart to heal after his broken engagement. But his former fiancee, Deborah, is looking for a fresh start too. Filled with regret, and cast out by her dat for a reason she can't yet reveal, Deborah can only pray Noah will forgive her foolishness.

Deborah is the last person Noah expected to show up at Promise Lodge. But with her cruel words still ringing in his head, he's reluctant to accept her apology--even if the Old Order ways demand he try. If only he could obey Christ's most important commandment: love one another.  But one thing is certain--his mother and aunts, and their beloved Preacher Amos, will do their best to help him get there.

This is quite a different story involving the Amish but what an interesting one it is. There are some different personalities that come to Promise Lodge to see if they'd be interested in moving there and these will keep you reading and wondering. I have read some of Charlotte's other books and find this just as good as those. I can recommend this as great book with a very interesting story.
