    If you are a reader who mostly avoids Amish fiction because you think you cannot relate to what many think of as a perfect, sinless lifestyle that might be just a little boring, you really should give Laura Hilton?s novels a try. In them you will find Amish characters who struggle wi...

    Laura V. Hilton has done it again, and I?m so happy to have read this amazing book. Not the ordinary Amish story, and one that will linger long after the final page has been turned. Can the kindness of one community over come the hurt that has been inflicted by another, or will they...

    Caleb couldn't get Lydia out of his mind after seeing her at a wedding.  She stood out-she glittered.  He had to forget about her.  She was dangerous. He agreed to do the bookkeeping for a friend's shop.  He never expected to see Lydia there.  Lydia agreed to help her friend in...

    This leads you back to the understanding that the Amish aren't perfect and have much the same type of problems as we do. From temptations like adultery, premarital sex, to sexual harassment, and things from nature like destructive storms. All these things happened to either Lydia or Ca...

    Love by the Numbers just might be my favorite Laura Hilton book. The theme of this story is what really spoke to me. Caleb and Lydia are two people who both have some skeletons in their closet, one due to outside influences and the other due to personal sin. Neither believes that they ...

    I must admit that the Amish genre is one of my favorites in which to immerse myself and forget reality for a while! Laura V. Hilton is quickly becoming one of my "go to" authors, for this very purpose. This new book is one that was not one of the typical Amish tale...girl meets guy, fa...

    ?What if the life you want, and the future God has for you, is hiding in your biggest problem, your worst failure, your greatest fear?? First things first ? WOWZA. I realize you probably don?t associate ?steamy kisses? with Amish fiction but that?s because you haven?...

    What I liked the most about this book was the details of a shunning. I have often wondered exactly how it works and if everyone is in agreement with it. I loved Lydia and her humbleness. After a tragedy at her hometown , she finds comfort in a new place. Her aunt has graciously asked h...

    Beautiful Story! Love by the Numbers is a beautiful story of romance with what I consider a little bit of mystery. The mystery part is where the author gives little bits and pieces of each of the main character?s story that keeps the reader guessing. There was also intrigue woven ...

    Author Laura V. Hilton is an amazing author to write a marvelous book that pulled so many emotions from me and it's too many emotions to list. For example, Love by the Numbers took me through the checklist of humor, anger to the test of my faith. There's so much to this book from how g...

    Tall. Sandy-blond hair. Clean-shaven face. Milk-chocolate-brown eyes. Pardon me but, YUM! All right, Laura. You definitely have my attention right away. I mean, who in their right mind would lay the book down now! Not me. And you shouldn?t either! But if that?s not enoug...

    Let me just start by saying that Laura Hilton does not write your traditional mushy Amish stories. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. There are some scenes, two in particular, in this book that left my cheeks a little rosy, and I may have had to roll up my sleeves a bit t...

    I need to start out this review with a disclaimer that I don?t read much Amish books. I have been reading more since joining Celebrate Lit Tour but it?s not one of my favorite genres. That being said, this book by Laura V Hilton is a solidly written book. It features Lydia, an abse...

    Author Laura V. Hilton once again writes a solid book in which she is not afraid to make her characters human. All the feelings are there; love, joy, fear etc. Even hurt and harassment from an Amish community. Through it all they hang on to God?s love and His promises. A great remind...
