Review of Home to Pebble Creek

Review of Home to Pebble Creek

by Vannetta Chapman


This free short story e-romance is a prequel to The Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman. Fans of the series will enjoy this chance to briefly revisit Pebble Creek, and new readers will be introduced to an Amish community that is more deeply explored in the three full novels, A Promise for Miriam, A Home for Lydia, and A Wedding for Julia. When Joseph Bontrager left Pebble Creek, all of Esther Schrock’s dreams and hopes for the future went with him. Bravely picking up the pieces of her broken heart, she resumed her life teaching at the schoolhouse with Miriam King. Now, nineteen months later, Joseph has returned. Despite her initial excitement, Esther feels anger rise up instead of love. Will she be able to forgive him for leaving? Forgive him for more than a year and a half of silence without a single letter? With Miriam’s encouraging words, and despite ominous clouds on the horizon, will Esther be able to replace the bitterness in her heart with affection for Joseph once more?

MY REVIEW:  This is a wonderful story to read along with The Pebble Creek Amish Series.   I had read the books in Vannetta's series and this book filled in some of the puzzle pieces for me.  It was wonderful to read how Joseph and Esther got together as well as Miriam and Gabe and little Grace.   I fell in love with "Pebble Creek" and the cabins when I read the books in the series, so this was a very special story to me.  Thank you so much for offering this free short story, Vannetta!    It was a pleasure to read.
