Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Softly Blows the Bugle by Jan Drexler, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Softly Blows the Bugle
Series: The Amish of Weaver’s Creek #3
Author: Jan Drexler
Release Date: October 20, 2020
Genre: Christian Historical Amish Romance
Welcome back to the Amish community at Weaver’s Creek, where the bonds of family and faith bind up the brokenhearted.
When Elizabeth Kaufman received the news of her husband’s death at the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863, she felt only relief. She determined that she would never be at the mercy of any man again, even if it meant not having a family of her own. Then along came Aaron Zook . . .
Despite the severity of his injuries, Aaron has resolved to move west and leave the pain of the past behind him. He never imagined that the Amish way of life his grandfather had rejected long ago would be so enticing. That, and a certain widow he can’t get out of his mind.
Yet, even in a simple community, life has a way of getting complicated. Aaron soon finds that while he may have left the battlefield behind, there is another fight he must win–the one for the heart of the woman he loves.
As much as I enjoy Amish fiction it’s been a while since I dived into one, so I was excited to pick this one up. I read the first book in this series around the time it released but missed the second. Although this is the third book in the series it could easily be read as a standalone. I loved the plot in this one and it easily held my attention and kept the pages turning. Elizabeth was a likable heroine and it didn’t take long for me to connect with her and feel drawn to her journey toward healing and love. It was also easy for me to root for Aaron, who was broken and angry but underneath was just looking for a place to belong. There were so many things to love in this story and absolutely adored it. I will most definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
