In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for and a new, very different future…
Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.
Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm, the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to share…

A bit about me . . . .
I was raised in a small town in Ohio. If you had blinked twice, you would've missed it. It's grown by leaps and bounds. I've always found the Amish life interesting. I've enjoyed the many times I've visited their communities and learned about their lifestyle. Creating historical Amish characters and throwing them into difficult situations and joyous times has been challenging and fun. The greatest reward I've experienced in becoming an author is meeting wonderful people from all over the world who've been encouraging and supportive.

Book Review by Bree Herron
Amish fiction is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres to read. It holds such tender stories, and loving characters that many readers can find them easy to be immersed in. Molly Jebber has given readers a new novel, full of love, choices and change. She gives light to the the kindness of the Amish people and their ability to love.
I really enjoyed reading this book, Anna is a character that faces so many choices and yet she makes her decisions with grace and faith. I loved her two suitors, honestly could there be more like them? I found her love triangle to be refreshing in the Amish fiction. Though certainly not racy, this was a tale of choosing the right match for your heart. Anna certainly has to do this more times than one through out the book. Her compassion and tender moments made me wish to have her as a dear friend. I don’t know if I would have been able to handle such a scenario as well as Anna, but that’s why she is a fabulous character. She actually makes the reader seek her tools of handling tough moments in life, she has you seeking to be a better person. I don’t know if that is what Molly Jebber intended when she set out to write this story, but she certainly gave this reader a lot to think on with love, faith, and kindness.
I found my heart to be light and full after reading this book. I certainly didn’t know what to expect going into this book, and now I can’t wait to read more from Molly. I hope that readers that come across this book, pick it up and join their heart and mind into Anna’s story. I hope that they close the book on the final page and feel the same love and fullness I did from this book.
Have you ever made a tough choice between two people?

When I got divorced 8 years ago I had a hard time. I decided to raise my bi-racial granddaughter who was 3 and my son who was 14 at the time and he decided to live with his dad. To this day he will still not have anything go do with his niece or come and visit me. That is probably the hardest choice I have ever had to make. I knew he would be OK but she wouldn’t in the environment she was in. She is 9 now and has changed so much and a brilliant young lady. So I feel I definitely made the right choice.
You absolutely did. I admire your choice and your strength to do so. Thank you so much for sharing your story.
I had to make some dufficult choices in my life, but not something like Anna. Two Suitors for Anna sounds like a wonderful, tender-hearted book. Thank you for a great review!
Sounds like a wonderful read!
