In the first novel set in the Amish community of Pleasant Valley, a teacher must rely on her faith to guide her heart through challenging times.

All of Pleasant Valley seems to think the newcomer from Lancaster County is the perfect match for schoolteacher Leah Beiler. After all, so few new families come to their secluded Amish community, and even fewer unmarried men. Daniel Glick is a widower with three young children to look after—clearly he's in need of a wife. 

But Daniel’s past haunts him at every turn. Though he cannot miss the beauty in Leah’s bright eyes and patient ways, he also sees a reminder of the pain he came so far to escape. Leah, too, has a burden on her heart. Years ago she was engaged to Johnny Kile, and was heartbroken when he decided to leave the Amish community. Since then she has immersed herself in her love of the children she teaches, forgetting any hopes of having her own family. 

When Johnny returns, seeking reconciliation, Leah must decide between two pathways, either of which will change her life forever...

Leah's Choice: Pleasant Valley Book One by Marta Perry
I very much enjoyed my first book from this author which mentions congential diseases of the Amish and those who choose not to join the church.
I really like how Leah's Choice: Pleasant Valley Book One covered different topics than the usual fare found in Amish romances. I found the book well written,well developed characters and my interest never lagged from beginning to end. I am anxious to read more in this series.

Highly recommended to those who enjoy Amish-themed stories.
