Book Review~Brush of Angel's Wings

Brush of Angel's Wings by Ruth Reid is the second novel from the 'A Heaven on Earth' series.  I previously read the first in this series, The Promise of an Angel, and very much enjoyed Ruth Reid's talent as a writer.  Brush of Angel's Wings was just as enjoyable!

Rachel Hartzler is young Amish woman who has no prospects of marriage, and she is past the prime time when young women marry in her old-order Amish community.  She is dedicated to her parents, who suffered the loss of their only son in an accident.  The youngest daughter, Rachel has stepped in to help her father with the farm chores her brother used to do.  She is not good at, and has no interest in, womanly chores of cooking, cleaning and sewing. 

Jordan Engles, whose mother had been Amish, arrived in town after his mother's death.  Having never been raised Amish, he had promised his mother he would give his Amish roots a chance.  He has no intention of becoming Amish, but finds work at the Hartzler farm, taking over Rachel's farm chores.  The two dislike each other immediately, and the story follows them as they try to discover God's will for their lives. 

Throughout Brush of Angel's Wings, an angel is watching over Rachel and Jordan and interceding where necessary. The story is full of emotion and twists and turns-a book I had a hard time putting down!
