A Little Bit of Charm by Mary Ellis

Mary Ellis is the bestselling author of many books, including A Widow’s Hope, An Amish Family Reunion, and Living in Harmony. She and her husband live in central Ohio, where they try to live a simpler style of life.


From the book’s back cover:
Rachel King, still recovering from the death of her parents, watches both of her older sisters find happiness in homes of their own with husbands who adore them. She yearns for her own new beginning.

Her cousin Sarah lives near a Thoroughbred stable in Kentucky, and the opportunity to work around beautiful horses has always been Rachel’s dream. She leaves Lancaster County to find a home with Sarah and her husband, Isaac, wondering about God’s plan for her life. When a job at Twelve Elms Stables opens up unexpectedly, it seems as though He has answered Rachel’s heartfelt prayers.

Then she meets Jake Brady, one of the owners of Twelve Elms, and her life becomes complicated. He’s attractive and charming, and his interest in her is flattering. But he’s also English as well as her boss. And is his trust in God as central to his life as it should be?

When Amish men she meets at church and singings start pursuing her, Rachel has important decision to make. What does a young woman do when her heart puts her faith in jeopardy?

From Jo:
Mary Ellis writes excellent Amish novels. In A Little Bit of Charm, she draws you into her story through her skill at portraying characters that are real. The reader will feel every emotion Rachel King does. You may think you know how this novel ends. Then you think maybe you really don’t. Mary Ellis gives her readers wonderful descriptions of the area and the thoroughbred horses. Will she leave her Amish ways for the enjoyment of Jake and the thoroughbred horses she adores?
