I chose to read and review the book, “A Dream of Miracles” by Ruth Reid.  I worried my selection might be a chick book, but I was quite wrong.  In fact, I found this book to be quite the page turner, and I looked forward to moments alone to check up on the primary characters in the story.

I found the novel to be quite believable and the characters easy to relate to.  The story focuses on an Amish woman named Mattie and an employee of the Child Protection Services named Bo.  Their paths cross when the widowed Amish woman is accused of abusing her 18 month old son.   There’s just enough romance and just enough mystery to intrigue male and female readers alike.  I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading other stories from this author.
