This Book Room: His Love Endures Forever

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

Danielle Kent is anything but Amish. Just her luck to fall in love with an Amish guy.

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's 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 goes away but endures forever.

Additional notes: This is the third book in the Land of Canaan series. You can read my review of the first book here and my review of the second book here.

My thoughts: I was really excited to read this book but hoped it would be a bit less predictable than some of Beth's other books. She must've read my mind because this book completely delivered. I loved that it wasn't necessarily about Danielle and Levi falling in love so much as it was about Danielle and Levi building a life together. As a somewhat new newlywed, even though I lived with my now-husband for several years before we wed, I can tell you married life definitely has its ups and downs. And while Danielle and Levi started out with many challenges, it was incredibly inspiring to see them both lean on and grow in God's love. This is the best book of this series so far.

Thanks to booksneeze.com for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
