    1. "3.5 out of 5 stars. It's a sweet historical Amish romance about two lost souls finding one another.What got me interested in this novel was actually a review by Kav R. from Harlequin's website which says, "This book tickled me so much I'm still grinning. I kept thinking of the song I Have Confidence from Sound of Music. The line -- "A captain with seven children, what's so fearsome about that?" -- readily transformed into "A farmer with ten children, what's so fearsome about that?" in my mind a [...]


    2. This book tickled me so much I'm still grinning. I kept thinking of the song I Have Confidence from Sound of Music. The line -- "A captain with seven children, what's so fearsome about that?" -- readily transformed into "A farmer with ten children, what's so fearsome about that?" in my mind and I found myself humming as I read. The way Ruthy finds out about the children is hysterical. Totally priceless. Loved, loved, loved everything about the beginning of this book. I couldn't turn the pages fa [...]


    3. When Ruthy Mummert comes to be nanny to Levi Zook after being jilted by her beau she learns he has 10 kids. Levi is a widower who needs someone to look after his children. To Levi, Ruthy is too young and to attractive to be a nanny. To save her reputation, he offers her marriage, a marriage of convenience. She accepts as she has fallen in love with the kids and realizes how much they need a women in their lives. Soon Ruthy and Levi fall in love with each other, but neither thinks they other is r [...]


    4. I loved this book! I loved how Ruthy came into this family and took care of them and loved the children like her own. I'm so glad she had the theme of forgiveness in her book. We all struggle with forgiving others, and it was great how she used this theme in her book. I also enjoyed reading her first book, The Prodigal Son Returns.


    5. Jan Drexler is one of the best authors I have read lately. Her books are very entertaining, and extremely well-written. I particularly loved this one. Ruthy is happy to leave the man she would have married after a devastating betrayal. There are so many elements in this book to love-the era-the warmth of family-forgiveness. I loved it and have read it several times more. Write faster!


    6. These two characters were so frustrating through the book. The fact that they did not talk until the end of the book drove me crazy. It was to nicely tied up for me in the end. They still had issues they never really resolved just okay we love each other.


    7. Meh. This is actually a rather pleasant little story most of the time, but it's just not all that much of a romance. Set in the 1930s, the story begins after Ruthy Mummert answers an ad to become a maidle (kind of a housekeeper/nanny) for an Amish widower out in Indiana. She is fleeing a broken betrothal in Lancaster County, PA.When Ruthy gets to Levi Zook's farm, she learns that she is in for more than she bargained for. Levi is certainly a widower, but he has 10 children ranging from the nearl [...]


    8. A Mother for His Children by Jan Drexler FROM AMISH NANNY TO BRIDE?After her sweetheart's betrayal, Ruthy Mummert leaves behind the small-town gossip of her Amish community for the first opportunity she can find: a housekeeper position in faraway LaGrange County, Indiana. Ruthy didn't realize the job meant caring for ten children—and for their handsome widowed father. To Levi Zook's mind, Ruthy is too young and too pretty to be anyone's housekeeper. A marriage of convenience will protect her r [...]


    9. It's been a while since reading about Amish characters. I think I enjoyed The Prodigal Son Returns better than this, but Ruthy and Levi's story had it's own charm that made it quite poignant at times. Really loved the hobo character and his transformation:)


    10. Ruthy answers Levi Zook's maidel posting in the budget and leaves Pennsylvania for the Indiana Amish community to escape losing her intended to her best friend. After surviving the shock that Levi had ten children she gets busy to make the household run smoothly. The other shock is Levi is not an older man and what she thought was her path in life just might not be what she wants now.


    11. This just was not a great read for me. I was bored with the lack of story. I needed more to fill the pages besides just a love tale. It was just too romance driven for me.


    12. This exciting book was really hard to put down. I enjoyed the Amish romance between Levi and Ruthy plus also enjoyed the ten children alot, too.


    13. Beautifully written, packs interesting life lessons into a well-crafted story. I do not usually read Love-inspired Amish Romance Novelsbut when I do, I read Jan Drexler.
