A Place at Our Table by Amy Clipston Book Review

Kayla Dienner has suffered her fair share of heartache, which is why she vows to protect her heart at all costs . . . until she meets Jamie Riehl.

Along with his volunteer work at the local fire department, running his Amish farm keeps Jamie Riehl busy. He barely has time to eat at the family table, never mind find someone to date. But when he meets Kayla Dienner, he is smitten.

Kayla tries hard to deny her attraction to Jamie. After all, she’s spent the last year discouraging her younger brother, Nathan, from becoming a firefighter. The death of their older brother in a fire a year ago is fresh in her mind—she can’t bear the idea of putting her heart on the line every time the sirens blare.
Then tragedy strikes, and Jamie wants to extinguish any flame between him and Kayla. Can Kayla set aside her own fears to save the love she was determined to deny?

The first book in the Amish Homestead series, A Place at Our Table invites us to a quiet community in Lancaster County where love burns brightly no matter the cost.
My Thoughts:

This has been a unique Amish read with the occupation being centered on the fire department. It has made an interesting read. It wouldn’t have been something I would have expected in this I enjoyed the change of pace in this genre.

One of the main characters Jamie helps out on his father’s dairy farm and has been a volunteer fire fighter for many years. Jamie carries a lot of the work load for his parents and siblings. He keeps too busy to think of himself or much less a beau. Then he meets Kayla who has a lot of heart ache and fear that keeps her from moving forward after the loss of her brother who was a fire fighter also. A relationship for Kayla with a firefighter in not something she is ready to invest her heart into or so she things. The characters had a lot of depth to them and very realistic.

I had a hard time putting the book down. It was filled with so many emotions that the characters and the plot just tugged at my heart. It’s a story about forgiveness and hope and letting go of the past.

I look forward to the next book in An Amish Homestead.
