"A Dream of Miracles" by Ruth Ried is her newest novel in the Amish Wonder series. In this novel, Mattie, a young Amish widow with two children, age 3 and 18 months, who has been turned in to Child Protection by her substitute doctor. Bo Lambright is the case worker that has been assigned to her.
Though I usually don't like Amish novels, I normally truly love Ruth Ried novels. However, I didn't really like this one. The reasoning for turning Mattie in didn't make much sense. Though she is a little weird and definitely obsessed with her children, she wasn't someone who would be turned in. Which I guess is the point, that the reader wouldn't want her to lose her children, but to me it just made for a lot of tension that didn't need to be there. That being said, though I didn't like this particular novel, the other reviewers put up many stars and seemed to love it. So my advice would be to give this book a try. Ried is an excellent writer, this one just rubbed me the wrong way.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review from www.booklookbloggers.com.
