Review: A Place At Our Table by:Amy Clipston

 A Place at Our Table (Amish Homestead #1)
About the Book:
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 Review:
 Jamie has always felt that he is a ready made man. Love and all the nonsense that goes with it, he just doesn't have time for, that is until he meets Kayla. She seems like the perfect fit for him. Poor Kayla has had a difficult time this past year, with the death of her brother. Kayla's focus is not love right now even though she definitely has feelings for Jamie.

 Amy Clipston's latest read is full of love as well as excitement. Tragedy is not far behind and soon instead of the pro griever being helped they have to help on their own. Grieving is such a difficult process with no right or wrong answers. You have to just let the grief envelop you and thats not always the easiest thing to do. The author does a great job intertwining the grieving process and the romance behind it all.
