Hannah's Courtship by Emma Miller

I recently received a review copy of Hannah's Courtship from Harlequin through NetGalley.  It is a clean and inspirational romance.  Check out the cover and Goodreads blurb:

Second Chance At Love

Amish widow Hannah Yoder never intended to marry again. Yet when her friendship with veterinarian Albert Hartman begins to bloom into something more, Hannah wonders if perhaps she's finally ready for a new love. Albert waited his whole life to find the right woman, only to realize Hannah was there all along. But there's more than their friendship to consider. Albert is a Mennonite, born-and-bred, and Hannah cannot, will not, leave her Amish faith, not even for him. Does Albert have the courage to give up his modern life for Hannah…and will Hannah have the courage to let him?

Hannah's Daughters: Seeking love, family and faith in Amish country

This was a sweet and lovely story. It was warm and uplifting. There is nothing even remotely questionable. So if you like clean reads, this is a great romance for you. Hannah is a great character who was willing to stand up for her daughters no matter what. She was willing to do whatever she had to to take care of her youngest daughter- even break some of the church's rules. I just wanted Hannah to be happy. Albert was so sweet and willing to do whatever it tool to marry Hannah and help her with her youngest daughter. He was a delight to read. As a mom, I felt for Hannah as she was trying to come to terms with her youngest daughter's desire for independence.  You want to shelter your children- especially a special needs child- but every child eventually needs to spread their wings and fly.  In the case of Susanna, she may not truly leave the nest, but she really wants to spread her wings and fly.  It can be so hard for a mother to let go... to let her child fly.  What a lovely story!

You can find this and the other books in the Hannah's Daughters series on Goodreads.  I give Hannah's Courtship 4 Fairies for a lovely romance that focused on character development and the emotions of the characters.
