Product Description

Product Description

Bestselling author Mindy Starns Clark and coauthor Leslie Gould offer readers The Amish Nanny, Book 2 in the Women of Lancaster County series, which tells the stories of young Plain women as they explore their roots, connect with family, and discover true love.

Amish-raised Ada Rupp knows it’s time to make a commitment to the faith and join the church, especially if she wants a future with the handsome Amish widower Will Gundy. 
But when she has the chance to travel to Switzerland as the caregiver of a young child, she leaps at the opportunity.

Anxious to learn more about her forebears, Ada enlists the help of a young Mennonite scholar named Daniel, but even as she develops feelings for him, she cannot get Will from her mind—or her heart. At a crossroads, Ada must decide what she is willing to give up from the past in order to embrace her future.

By Rachel

Ever since discovering that she was adopted, Ada Rupp has not been entirely content with life in her Amish community. While her long-term illness has stabilised itself, her mother still hovers over her, controlling her life out of fear that Ada may fall sick again. Still single and in her twenties, Ada hopes that she may have caught the attentions of Will Gundy, a close friend and widower with three children. But after rumours about Will and Leah Fisher begin to surface, Ada hangs all of her hopes on being appointed teacher of her community's one-room schoolhouse. If she can't have a family of her own, being a teacher would somewhat satisfy the longings of her heart. However, it appears that God has other plans for her, as soon after the teaching position is given to Leah, Will's grandmother offers Ada the chance to visit her ancestral family home in Switzerland. An issue over the ownership of the land has arisen, resulting in the need for members of the two Amish families who own the land to travel to Europe in order to resolve matters. Will's oldest daughter, Christy, will be travelling with them, giving Ada the chance to try out her teaching methods on the girl, who is still hurting from her mother's death and refusing to learn anything at school. Will this chance to travel to Europe and act as a nanny to the daughter of the man she has come to love enable Ada to see God's plan for her life? Or will it open her eyes to the adventures and temptations of the world, making it even more difficult to settle when she returns to her Amish community?
