Book Review: The Courtship Basket

The Courtship Basket
An Amish Heirloom Novel 
By Amy Clipston

Years ago, a picnic basket brought two hearts together. For Rachel and Mike, history bay be about to repeat itself. 

Rachel Fisher is devastated when the young man she's loved for years leaves her to date her best friend. Determined to keep her mind off the pain, she starts teaching at an Amish school for children with learning disabilities. Since his father became ill, Mike Lantz has been overwhelmed with the responsibility of providing for his family and caring for his six-year-old-brother, John. When John joins Rachel's class and she learns that his mother is deceased and his father is sick, she desperately wants to help the family, even with something as simple as a meal. 

With her parents' old picnic basket, Rachel begins sending food to the Lantz family. As the weeks go by, John's grades start to improve, and the attraction grows between Rachel and Mike. They can't deny that their friendship is growing toward something more, but both of them are hesitant to risk a more serious relationship. The last thing Rachel wants is another heartbreak, and Mike is worried about providing for his loved ones. Will the two be able to reconcile their past hurts with new hope for the future? 

My Thoughts: As you already know (by my numerous reviews on them), I love romance novels. While they are fantasy, they're so much fun to read and the whole unrealistic aspect makes them even better. So of course I was happy to get to read Amy Clipston's Amish romance. The additional aspect of them being very religious and simple people makes it that much better and the author does a great job of putting that into the story. You'l love both the main characters and will be rooting for them the whole way. The Courtship Basket is a great weekend read with a very good ending.
