Ella's Wish by Jerry Eicher

Harvest House Publishers supplied me with this book for a review in return.

Ella Yoder has moved into her dream house. In the stillness of the great house, Ella ponders her options. How is she to survive on her own? How will she ever forget Aden? What is to become of her?

Two would-be suitors soon make their intentions known, but Ella is unsure of her own feelings. As she agrees to take care of Preacher Stutzman's three motherless girls, Ella's heart is touched by their love for her. Could their affection be the answer to Ella's quest? Can God speak through the love of a child?

This is the second book in the “Little Valley Series”. I thoroughly loved this book as much or even more than I loved the first book in the Series. Ella moves into her new home which was built by Daniel, Aden’s brother. She decides to share the huge house with her cousin Ronda and her newlywed husband and then she finds she is not so alone with other people in the house. In the meantime, she is asked by Preacher Stutzman to take care of his 3 children during the week and he picks them up on Friday. She agrees to do this and she falls in love with the children.

The Bishop starts to call on her and I was shocked the way he treats her. As the story goes, Ella decides to not see him anymore. This is such a GREAT book, I believe everyone who loves the Amish as much as I do, should read this book. I would suggest this book to my friends and family, it is so Good.
