The Promise of an Angel by Ruth Reid

"In Mescota County, Michigan, an angelic visitor's words inspire Judith to a future she never imagined. After a barn raising accident, Judith Fischer’s convinced she’s met an angel. However, her attempts to convince others end up frustrating her Old-Order Amish community. Only Andrew Lapp believes her, but the rest, including Levi Plank, the man she’s waited to marry, demand she forget the nonsense. Meanwhile, her younger sister Martha has taken a fancy to Levi and sees her sister's controversy as a perfect distraction for turning Levi's head. In a dream, the angel tells Judith she must choose her path. As her faith continues to grow, so do her feelings for Andrew. Will she continue to place her hope in the angel’s message, even if it means losing all she knows and loves?"
This is one of those books that once you start you can't put down! Loved this book from page one til the end. The story is told from two different view points, Judith's and Andrew's. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow even with all the frustrations and distractions. I loved how the book ended and it doesn't leave you hanging or asking questions. This is the first book I have read by Ruth Reid and it did not disappoint. I am looking forward to reading more from this author!
