Love Comes to ParadiseLove Comes to Paradise

A New Home…

A New Friend…

A Catastrophe…

Does she have a future to hope for?


Nora King is a woman in love. When Elam Detweiler leaves the ultraconservative Amish district of Harmony, Maine, and moves to Paradise, Missouri, Nora boldly follows soon after. But is she in love with the man or the independence and freethinking he represents? Though she soon finds work she enjoys and a new best friend in Paradise, Nora can’t decide whether she wants to capture Elam’s Englisch-leaning heart or commit finally to her Amish faith.

And then, unexpectedly, Lewis Miller comes from Harmony to offer Nora what every woman hopes for—a lifetime of unconditional love. As Lewis attempts to claim her affections, Elam’s interest piques. Suddenly, Nora is irresistible to him. Wooed by two such different men, will Nora come to her senses before Elam’s thoughtless choices ruin her reputation beyond repair? Will Lewis’s pursuit survive the challenge?

Love Comes to Paradise is about fresh starts…and how faith in God and His perfect plans provide peace and joy in a turbulent and ever-changing world.

The second New Beginnings novel is a sweet, adorable love story with credible characters who want a fresh start and to leave painful memories behind them. They encounter unexpected obstacles and rely on their faith to help them break through those obstacles. Ellis gives the Amish culture the respect it deserves, and her research on the Amish way of life shines in each of her stories.

~ 4-stars, Romantic Times Book Reviews

I was so anxious to read Love Comes to Paradise because I was such a fan of Nora from Living in Harmony, who was a little bit rebellious. Nora certainly does a lot of growing up through the course of this book and she comes to realize the world does not exist around Nora King’s problems. Mary Ellis’s characters are real people with real problems who happen to be Amish. She does a fantastic job making the reader care about the people of Paradise whether they are the scene stealer or the one who really irritates you, they will keep you entertained for sure. A well written book should keep us engaged, interested, and in my case wanting to skip ahead to see what is going to happen next. Love Comes to Paradise fulfills these requirements and then some. No, I did not skip ahead. I just read really quickly! Overall I think you will absolutely enjoy your time in Paradise…..I mean come on….who doesn’t want to go to Paradise?
