Lydia knows she has been adopted, but she has no idea the secrets surrounding that adoption. It is not until after she is married and raising her own family that she finds out the truth of her former life. This causes strain on Lydia and John’s marriage, a marriage that was so sweet and peaceful. And John has his own secrets about his job that is causing strain as well, though John doesn’t want to let Lydia know about his job issues because he knows she will worry about this as well. Will Lydia and John ever find the closeness and love they shared before these issues came into their lives?
I love, love Marta Perry books! And Lydia’s Hope did not disappoint. Lydia and John has a sweet and loving Amish marriage that is so very heartwarming. My heart went out to them as they started growing further and further apart because of these issues they were going through. The way he supported Lydia was so heartwarming, and what he does in this book to assure her of his support is adorable. I just love this John character! I loved the plain simple life this couple lived as Amish and their life in the little community. If you enjoy Amish fiction, you will love this book. There is a bit of tension throughout the book that captured my attention and I couldn’t put the book down until I finished reading it! I highly recommend Lydia’s Hope by Marta Perry.
