On My Wishlist (#2)



On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too - Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post. If you want to know more click here.


Last week I posted 10 books that are on my wishlist - I'm so excited that I got both Robin Parrish's books this week!!


Here are three other books that are on my wishlist!



Beauty for Ashes (A Hickory Ridge Novel)
Beauty for Ashes by Dorothy Love


She's a beautiful young widow. He's a charming Charleston gentleman with a notorious past. Both need a place to call home. 

 After years of mourning the death of her young husband and longing for a family of her own, Carrie Daly has promised to wed bookstore owner Nate Chastain. But questions about his true feelings for her cause her to hesitate.

When arguments with her brother's wife force her from the family farm to the run-down Verandah Ladies' Hotel, Carrie determines to make a new life in town. Then she meets newcomer Griff Rutledge and, despite the disapproval of nearly everyone, is immediately drawn to him. Could he be the one for whom she's waited so long?

 Charlestonian Griffin Rutledge, scion of a low country rice planter, former blockade runner, gambler, and horseman, arrives in Hickory Ridge to collect an old debt before heading off to try his luck in Australia. Estranged from his family for years, Griff is a loner and likes it that way. Offered the opportunity to train a magnificent Thoroughbred for the local banker, he settles down . . . temporarily. But a chance meeting with Carrie triggers a chain of events that causes him to question his choices. Maybe God brought him to Hickory Ridge-and to Carrie-for a reason.

The Amish Midwife (The Women of Lancaster County, #1)The Amish Midwife by Mindy Starns Clark


A dusty carved box containing two locks of hair and a century-old letter regarding property in Switzerland, and a burning desire to learn about her biological family lead nurse-midwife Lexie Jaeger from her home in Oregon to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. There she meets Marta Bayer, a mysterious lay-midwife who desperately needs help after an Amish client and her baby die. 

Lexie steps in to assume Marta's patient load even as she continues the search for her birth family, and from her patients she learns the true meaning of the Pennsylvania Dutch word demut, which means 'to let be' as she changes from a woman who wants to control everything to a woman who depends on God. 

A compelling story about a search for identity and the ability to trust that God securely holds our whole life-past, present, and future.
