Like most Amish women, Esther Stoltzfus considers herself to be down-to-earth. Her marriage to her deceased husband was one borne out of practicality, and Esther sees no reason why God won't replace what He was taken away. When Esther moves to a new community with her daughter, Diana, she meets the handsome minister Isaiah Mast, who has experienced his own loss and appears to be a logical fit to complete their family. But everything changes when Esther is introduced to Joseph Zook, her widowed neighbor down the road. While tending to his treasured roses, Joseph tells stories of his passionate love for his late wife, Silvia--stories that stir a place in Esther's heart she never knew existed. What if she and Isaiah could have the kind of love Joseph and Silvia shared? Meanwhile, Joseph gets his own second chance at love with the eccentric Arlene King, even as he knows he will never find another frau like his beloved Silvia. Silvia's Rose is a beautiful story filled with redemption, romance, and risking it all for the reward of true love

This is the first book by Eicher that I have read, and I am delighted to say that it won't be my last! Two widowers, a widow, and a determined young woman star in this Amish novel. With each character having a different perception of what romance and marriage is, it will take some beautiful flowers and a few divine 'hints' to get these characters where they need to be. Ultimately, though, all four young people will realize that love is worth the wait – and that, sometimes, God has plans that are better than we could ask for. Eicher is a talented writer, adept at capturing the variety of human emotions and relationships. The romance of this book is not idealized: rather, it is honest, genuine, and sometimes not quite so 'sparkly' as we often look for. The result is a romantic Amish read that is more heartfelt and romantic than one might expect. The characters are well-developed, the ending not quite as one might expect, and the pacing just right for the type of story it is. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series, and hope to see some familiar faces in the storyline.
