In this touching Amish romance, a brokenhearted woman and a steadfast man discover that the safest place to weather tragedy is in each other’s arms.
After the murder of both her parents, Emma Hochstedler returns to the small community of Johns Mill, hoping to resume her quiet existence. Reclaiming her place proves harder than expected—especially now that a movie is being made about her family’s loss. But then, an old friend offers her a lifeline that gives her new purpose.
Amish builder Samuel Christner is the biggest—and the strongest—man in town. In fact, the gentle giant has only one weakness—Emma. Even though she broke his heart, he won’t let his childhood sweetheart face her troubles alone. He hires Emma as a nurse for his elderly aunt…and finds himself falling for her all over again.
But while romance blooms, storm clouds gather. And when darkness falls, it will take all Sam’s strength—and all their love—to see them through.

IN MY OPINION
A simple life does not equal a life without trials. And this is shown with aching clarity in Lauren Blount’s Strength in the Storm. This is the second book in the Johns Mill Amish Romance series, and while this book stands well on its own, to truly get the full picture, you definitely want to read book one.
Emma is blessed with beauty, but she carries a lot of pain, scars, and even some open wounds inside her. Blount excels at making the reader sympathize with Emma and her internal struggles while also showing her servants heart as she cares for a woman with strong opinions, not a kind one in sight for Emma.
And then there’s Samuel, a big, strong man who is a teddy bear when it comes to Emma. When his world is turned upside down, he struggles with what his new identity will be.
I was invested in Emma and Samuel’s story as Stina Nielson, the narrator brought them to life. I was rooting for them and I’m rooting for Mariam and Caleb too (because they better get their own stories).
