When Micah Miller’s brother and sister-in-law are killed in a buggy accident, he’s devastated. But he fulfills the promise he made when their twins were born seven years earlier: to raise Abby and Isaac should tragedy strike. Still, coping with the children’s grief as well as his own, requires extra support. Micah takes them to a counselor who recommends animal therapy. He’s surprised to find an Amish farm that offers just that . . .
Hope Graber had to find a way to save the family farm after her daed’s health forced him to stop breeding horses. Providing animal therapy proved to be the answer—thanks to the help of expert trainer Logan Russell. Together, they not only pay the bills, they make positive changes in children’s lives. Hope loves working with each child, but she takes a special interest in the Miller twins. She even makes Micah smile again—and he does the same for her. In fact, as Micah emerges from his depression, he longs to make them one happy family. But will Hope’s debt to her Englisch trainer, and their close partnership, stand in the way?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Micah had a phobia of horses. Considering he was an Amish man, it caused him some very awkward moments even with his father attempting to shield him from it. Despite his insecurities and feeling that he never measured up to his brother’s worth, he never hesitated to step up and take over the care of his seven-year-old niece and nephew and to love them as if they were his own. I enjoyed watching him discover his own value and overcome his fears.
Hope had determined that her father’s problem was bad enough that she would never be able to marry. She would never dream of saddling a man with a father-in-law like him! When Hope came across the buggy accident that took the life of Micah’s brother and his wife, leaving the twins injured and orphaned, she didn’t think twice about accompanying them to the hospital and staying with them until their oenkle arrived – despite him being over five hours away!
I loved Hope’s gentle kindness. She was more concerned for others and gave sacrificially. She was also patient and unselfish. She never berated her father, even when his actions hurt her so much!
I appreciated getting a more in-depth look at hippotherapy than I had previously and the additional insights about Amish life that were gently sprinkled throughout the story.
His Unexpected Amish Twins is a sweet story of faith and overcoming fears. If you enjoy Christian romance, you will want to be sure to read it.
