When Love Finds You by Virginia Wise takes us back to 1738 in New Canaan, Pennsylvania. Catrina Witmer left Philadelphia with her grandparents amid a swirl of rumors. She wanted a fresh start away from the swirling gossip and finds that she likes living in the new Amish settlement. Eli Weber arrives with his sister, Gertrud Schulp. They are weavers who will provide much needed cloth to the community. Catrina and Eli are taken with each right way, but Gertrud along with their secrets stand in the way. As they spend time together, Eli is captivated by Catrina's zest for life and her baking skills. Eli finds himself proposing one day and, when Catrina accepts his proposal, they are quickly wed. Their marriage is not an easy one with Gertrud living with them and the secrets each of them have failed to disclose. Will they get their happily ever after or will this newlywed couple be torn apart? When Love Finds You is the second novel in An Amish New World series, but it can be read on its own. I thought When Love Finds You was well-written with developed characters. The story flows along smoothly. One of my favorite characters is Abram. He is a larger than life type of man who leaped from the pages of the story. I just loved how his story played out. I like the weaving and spinning featured in the story. I enjoyed the author's descriptions of the weaving process which is complex. The romance between Eli and Catrina is sweet. It builds slowly as they get to know each other. It is love based on what is inside a person instead of what is on the outside (though, Eli does find Catrina to be lovely). There are complications like Catrina's past and Gertrud. Eli has something that holds him back as well. Miscommunications and misunderstandings abound in When Love Finds You. There is humor sprinkled throughout the story. It is especially prevalent when Abram is around. One of my favorite scenes is when the Bishop arrives to speak with Gertrud, Eli and Catrina. The ending was delightful. When Love Finds You is a heartwarming Amish story about second chances, forgiveness, faith and love.
