ABOUT THE BOOK

Living in Harmony is the first book in bestselling author Mary Ellis's New Beginnings series. It's about fresh starts and love...and how faith in God and His perfect plan for our lives provides us with the peace and joy we desire.

Amy King--young, engaged, and Amish--faces difficult challenges in her life when she suddenly loses both of her parents in a house fire. Her fiancé, John Detweiler, persuades her and her sister Nora to leave Lancaster County and make a new beginning with him in Harmony, Maine, where he has relatives who can help the women in their time of need.

John's brother Thomas and sister-in-law Sally readily open their home to the three newcomers. Wise beyond his years, Thomas, a minister in the district, refuses to marry Amy and John upon their arrival, suggesting instead a period of adjustment and counseling.

During this time Amy discovers an aunt who was shunned. She wishes to reconnect with her, but this puts a strain on her relationship with John.

Can John and Amy find a way to live in happily in Harmony before making a lifetime commitment to one another?

My Thoughts on this Book:
In this new series by Mary Ellis we follow the lives of two sisters from Pennsylvania. After a tragic accident that leaves them without parents, the oldest sibling, Amy and her sister Nora move to Maine with Amy's fiance' John. As they work to make Harmony, Maine their home Amy finds her shunned Aunt Prudence living not far from where they are. Amy wants more than anything to have more family close by before she marries her fiance John, but will that ever be? This story is full of faith, romance and a little adventure added in. Great read. Now I can't wait until the next book in this great series comes out in the New Year.. 

I receieved this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review of this book. No other compensation was given.
