About the Book: Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son's mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.
Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won't rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo's worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.
When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible-not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo's dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future...or will she simply run away?
What I Thought: Ruth Reid is a favorite author of mine. A Dream of Miracles is by far my favorite book of hers. Although it is the third book in the Amish Wonders series, it can definitely be read by itself. The concept of an Amish family being investigated by social services is one I have not read before in an Amish fiction novel. As my husband is a social worker, it held special interest to me as well. My heart ached for Mattie, not only a widow but with a son with recurring illness, and with a history of depression. A Dream of Miracles would make a great Book Club/Book Group book, and has a Reading Group Guide at the back. Get this book-you won't be disappointed, I couldn't put it down!
