Book Review: "A Woodland Miracle" by Ruth Reid

"A Woodland Miracle" by Ruth Reid was a book I didn't want to put down.  Ben Eicher has disappointed his father for the last time and he sends him from Florida to the lumbercamp in Michigan.  The first person he meets when he gets there is Grace Wagler.  She gets the wrong impression of him right from the beginning.  Why is he so concerned with getting her to see the truth?  Grace doesn't need another relationship that is only based on pity for her disability, so she locks up her heart and gives Ben the cold shoulder.  When things around the community start going missing and then Grace herself is put in grave danger, will Ben be able to face his past to move on and will Grace be able to accept the future in order to truly live in the present?

I got caught up in the book.  I felt transported into the story.  The characters were real people with real issues to deal with.  I liked Ben.  He had the bad boy image, but at heart, he just wanted to help.  I liked that he grew through the story and wasn't the same as when the story started.  Besides the romance aspect of the story, there is also the suspense and adventure of what was going to happen to Grace and if Ben would be able to help her in time.   Being from Michigan helped me to understand the setting on an intimate level!

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a clean Christian romance, especially if they like Amish stories.
