An Amish Cradle by Beth Wiseman

An Amish CradleAn Amish Cradle by Beth Wiseman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I would like to show my appreciation to Thomas Nelson--FICTION via Net Galley for allowing me to read and give my review of this lovely tale.

Now and again I like to read an Amish book, there are some fantastic reads out there and Beth Wiseman is one of my top authors in this genre.

She weaves a story that we can all relate to. All Moms out there. When first you discover you are pregnant, we wish for a healthy baby. But what if it all goes wrong?

The reaction from Ruth Anne Zook when she found she was pregnant the same time as her friend she was over the moon and back. Her friend goes into labour befoe her and gives birth, so now Anne and her husband Levi are super excited and can't wait to hold their little on in they're arms and take the baby into their hearts.

Except when their baby is born, it is discovered to have Down Syndrome which Anne hasn't even heard of.
Levi had heard about it.

The reaction from Levi leaves you cold, until later in the book when we discover things.

I am not going to give away anything as most of this is in the blurb, but to say, Beth Wiseman has got right into the core of how parents would feel.

Many say, parents who have a disabled child are chosen by God because they are special. Each person has their own beliefs and I have mine.

No matter what, we know that ALL children are special whether with special needs or not. We love them.

Such a tender story. I read this is one sitting and the time just flew.

Tiny fingers,

Tiny toes,

And lives that will never be the same.

Journey with four families as their lives are about to change forever.
