Michelle’s Monthly Book Recommendations
The Amish Teacher's Gift by Rachel J. Good
This is a delightful book about a 19 year old who has 7 younger siblings and is the main support for her family. She is hired to teach at a school for special needs Amish children. The widowed father of one of her students experiences his own tragedies but he is drawn to her beauty and goodness.
The research in this book was one its best aspects. There was information about Amish life and culture as well as classroom techniques for children with special needs.
The well written primary and secondary characters pulled me into the story. I highly recommend The Amish Teacher’s Gift for fans of Amish romance and all romance.
