ABOUT THE BOOK


Shelter in the Storm
Title:   Shelter in the Storm 
Series: Johns Mill Amish Romance #1 
Author: Laurel Blount 
Publisher: Berkley Books 
Release Date: May 25, 2021 
Genre: Christian Contemporary/Amish Romance 

In this moving Amish romance, two broken hearts find hope in each other after a terrible loss.

Unspeakable tragedy strikes the Amish hamlet of Johns Mill when an unstable Englischer opens fire in the Hochstedler's General Store. In the aftermath, and under the media's spotlight, Joseph Hochstedler struggles to hold his shattered family together, drawing unexpected comfort from a faithful childhood friend. 

Born with a serious heart defect, optimist Naomi Schrock has always longed to live a life of service. She rolls up her sleeves, determined to help Joseph cope with this terrible crisis. But dare she hope that his friendship will finally deepen into love? 

As the media's obsession with the Hochstedler shooting escalates, Joseph and Naomi find themselves caught between tradition and compromise, lingering sorrows and uncertain hopes. And in the end, two people who've already lost far too much must find the courage to trust their hearts one last time.

EXCERPT:

“Would you like to go for a drive with me, Naomi?”

She didn’t understand what was happening for a couple more seconds, and when the truth finally dawned, she was too astonished to answer right away. She’d seen the bravest boys asking the prettiest girls similar questions at the singings she’d attended, all with the same, hopeful, shamefaced expressions. Can I drive you home, then?

But nobody had ever asked Naomi such a question, not until this minute.

The prickly worries of the day slipped away, replaced with a grateful, glowing joy. Maybe she didn’t know what her future held, but right now, in this moment, she was happier than she’d thought she’d ever be.

Joseph Hochstedler had come courting, and she meant to enjoy every second of it.

“Ja,” she answered shyly. “I think a drive in the snow with you would be wonderful fun, Joseph.”

His slow answering smile warmed her all the way to her chilly fingertips. “That’s what I hoped you’d say.”
