Caught between who she is…and who she was. 

Lauren Nolt hasn’t forgiven the Amish community of Lancaster County for shunning her parents. But returning as a successful Englischer working for large developers is just what she needs to get a promotion and give her parents the life they deserve. Coming face-to-face with her childhood bully, Amish widower Adam Hershberger, is the last thing she wants. Yet when her world’s shaken by a shocking discovery, Adam’s the only one she can confide in… 

Adam’s never forgiven himself for the part he played in Lauren’s past, nor what drove him to do it. But as developers threaten his great-grossdawdi’s farm, she’s the only one who can help. And with his little girl determined to bring him and Lauren together at every turn, keeping his distance is impossible. Now they must learn to trust each other—even as their secret feelings grow stronger. But is love enough to bridge the gap between their very different worlds?

The Amish Fiction genre is my absolute favorite genre to read. I am 
not sure how I have NEVER read a book by Jo Ann Brown. I was
drawn to read A Wish for Home by Jo Ann Brown because of 
the beautiful cover, the synopsis and a new to me author. 

Lauren Nolt and her parents fled the Amish Community when 
Lauren was young. Her parents were shunned and they left to 
live as Englisher. Lauren even went to College and has a
successful career. Lauren returns to Bliss Valley as the company
she is working for is doing "business" in a town beyond Bliss Valley.
She intended on only passing through, but due to circumstances 
beyond her control, she has to stay in town for awhile. She has her
car taken to the local garage and there she runs into the buy who bullied
her in her teen years. Adam Hershberger is now a widower with a young 
daughter. Adam is just as shocked to see Lauren in Bliss Valley. Adam
has regrets about how he treated Lauren in the past, but has never been
able to forgive himself, much less ask Lauren for forgiveness. He realizes 
that Lauren could be the only one to help him save his family farm from 
the developers. Adam's Daughter is also trying her best to get the 2 to 
like each other. Can Lauren help save Adam's family farm? Will Adam and
Lauren learn to trust each other despite their past? Will there be a romance
between the 2? 

WOW, I could NOT put this book down. So many twists and turns and 
excitement with each turn of the page. A Wish for Home is a book about 
second chances, forgiveness, 2 different worlds colliding. I really liked 
how Lauren and Adam's daughter also very much connected. A Wish for 
Home is Book 1 in the Secrets of Bliss Valley series. I LOVED it so much
and I am excitedly awaiting the next books in this series! EXCELLENT
