Surprised by Hope by Rebekah Fisher
It is a story about a young Amish girl who was born with a crippling problem with her leg causing her to walk with a crutch and of course which limited her abilities to do things others could do effortlessly. The bone deformity causes her great deals of pain which she has learned to deal with patiently. A chance at a corrective surgery leaves her knowing the chance for this is small, what with the major medical costs and so forth.
Getting to know Jeremiah is one of the joys that comes her way, but she doesn't feel confident due to her leg and the problems that it causes. Jeremiah is clearly interested in her, but wants to travel and see things outside the Amish world they live in.
It is a sweet story of romance with faith and trust in God to help them find the paths that they should travel. A Christian tale and with good values. I enjoyed it very much.
