Anna's Healing by Vannetta Chapman

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: October 1, 2015
Number of pages: 352
Genre: Amish, Christian Fiction
Series: Plain and Simple Miracles #1

Anna's Healing is the first book in a brand-new collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.

When a tornado strikes the farms surrounding Cody's Creek, Anna Schwartz's life is changed forever. She suffers a spinal cord injury and suddenly finds herself learning to live as a paraplegic.

Three people--Chloe Roberts, Jacob Graber, and Ruth Schwartz--join forces to help Anna through her darkest days. Chloe is an Englischer who writes for the local paper. Jacob has recently arrived in town and stays on as a hired hand at her uncle's. And Ruth is her grandmother, a woman of deep faith and a compassionate spirit.

Then one morning Anna wakes and finds herself healed. How did it happen? Why did it happen? And what is she to do now? Her life is again turned upside down as the world's attention is drawn to this young Amish girl who has experienced the unexplainable.

What did I think about this book:
Vannetta has done it again with her writing. As with the other books that I have read by this author I enjoyed reading it and am glad I got the chance to read it. I think this book is very well written and easy to read. Before you know it the day will be gone and the book will be finished as Vannetta has a way of drawing you in from the first page. I also really enjoyed hearing about Anna's Mammi as she sounds like a joy to sit and visit with. I do not know if I could be as strong as Anna was. She was a very strong woman. I like how this is a story of how miracles can and do happen. I think this will be a fun series and I can't wait for the next one to come out.
