A Mother For His Children by Jan Drexler
Ruthy Mummert leaves her Amish community after she was badly hurt by her sweetheart, Elam and her best friend and neighbor Laurette. After having been with Elam for 8 years, he begins a relationship with her best friend. The hurt was almost more than she can bear or forgive. She finds an opportunity to work for a widowed father in Indiana. As she arrives there she is surprised by the fact that this man had ten children.
Because she and Levi, her new employer are living in the same home, although in a separate building, the church elders are frowning upon the situation and as a result Levi offers Ruthy a chance for a "marriage of convenience'.
As they decided to do this, and become man and wife, in word only, Elam comes and finds Ruthy in Indiana. He convinces her to return home with him. The story is a wonderful story of forgiveness and second chances. You will want to read this one!
