A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance to discover love’s true way home…
Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith’s strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She’s never been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt’s wealthy mother is determined her son will marry a society woman.
With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances .

"Change Of Heart" by Molly Jebber is a really good book. The story kept me turning the pages. This is an historical Amish story so it is a little different than the Amish stories I have read but maybe that is why I liked it a lot. There is one complaint from me, a lot of the story was telling what the characters were thinking and doing rather than talking to each other. I like more of an actual dialogue from the characters. But this small fact did not keep me from enjoying the book. The story line is Great! The story is filled with great characters and it is a story of understanding and love and acceptance and forgiveness. This story shows appearances aren't necessarily the way things are. I love the Keepsake Pocket Quilt theme in this book. I won't go more into this theme except to say, what a wonderful idea for anyone to follow. If you want to know what this is,Read this book!
After reading "Change of Heart," I am adding her other novels, especially the books in the"Keepsake Pocket Quilt"series to my To Be Read list. Of course,I have to wait until they are written. I fell in love with Becca Yost and Dr. Matt Carrington and would love to read more about them. Of course, there are other characters that I want to read about and see if they truly change for the better, I am hoping to learn about new characters as well in the other books of this series. I have given "Change of Heart" five stars. I received a copy of this book from the author and Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
