Welcome to my review for A Simple Prayer By Amy Clipston. This is an Amish Christian Fiction story that is really good and I am so happy I got a chance to read it through booklook bloggers.
This story is about a Amish man who left the community as a child of 15 because he was getting into a lot of trouble and thought he would leave to spare his parents heartache.
Aaron has made a life for himself away from his Amish roots but he misses the community and after finding out his mother is very ill he decides to go back to visit her. Aaron wrote his family many letters but none of them were replied to so he naturally thinks his family dose not want him around.
Linda Is a friend of Aarons from school and she has her own problems feeling unloved by her uncle and missing her parents who died when she was a child.
To Aarons surprise he is welcomed back with open arms and his parents have no idea where his letters could have gone missing.
Aaron tries to get his brother to forgive him for leaving but his brother is really angry at him for doing so and its a real mess.
This is a fantastic story and a little like the story in the bible of the prodigal Son with some differences, but you will recognize the parallels..It has romance and a very satisfying ending .I think its a fantastic read and hope you give it a try soon
I received a free copy in order to make an informed review but my opinions are my own
