His Love Endures Forever

An unplanned pregnancy. An absent father. Can love really endure all things?

Danielle Kent is anything but Amish. But as destiny would have it, she has fallen in love with an Amish man.

Now she’s 18, pregnant, and hopeful that the child’s Amish father—Matthew Lapp—will do the right thing and marry her. She knows Matthew plans to leave his Colorado settlement for a life in the Englisch world. But that plan never included a baby.

When Matthew walks away from her and their unborn child, she has nowhere to turn. Her unlikely friendship with Levi offers some comfort—yet they have so little in common. This wasn’t the plan she had for her life, and she has never felt so alone. She doesn’t want to be pregnant. Doesn’t want to be Amish. Doesn’t want to trust God.

And yet.

God has plans beyond what her mind can imagine . . . loving plans to show a lost young woman that His love never fails but endures forever.

Beth Wiseman is a wonderful storyteller. She is one of those authors that I cannot put down. Her characters are flawed and real, and I find myself wanting to see them through to the end. His Love Endures Forever is a slightly different Amish fiction book, as the main character is not Amish. I enjoyed the way that Wiseman reveals her characters' past as the story unfolds and deepens the reader's understanding of why the character reacts to things the way that s/he does. Bottom line, if you have enjoyed any of Wiseman's books you will most likely also enjoy His Love Endures Forever. I certainly did.
