An Angel by Her Side by Ruth Reid is the third book of the A Heaven on Earth series. Even though it is a series, the books can be read alone and you can still relate to the story. This is the second book of the series I have read. You can relate to the characters and the story even if you haven’t read the other books in the series.
One of the main characters is Katie Bender, an Amish woman who lost her fiancée in a sudden accident. She had given on the thought of getting married but has found a love for teaching.
The other main character is Seth who has recently returned to
to assist his brother in-law who
has recently lost his wife. Hope Falls
Katie’s fiancée drowned in a river, so she has kept her distance from the river in the months since he died. Seth is also running from past circumstances in his life.
Katie and Seth meet when they are waiting in a root cellar during a tornado with Katie’s students.
While rebuilding the damaged buildings and other circumstances they fall in love and they both learn to let another person into their lives.
It was an interesting read and the story keeps you wanting to read more.
