While A Beautiful Arrangement is the third book in An Amish Journey series it can be read as a standalone I have enjoyed all three novels and I recommend reading Hearts in Harmony and Listening to Love I thought A Beautiful Arrangement was well written with realistic characters Lydia is a seventeen year old who is unready for marriage especially to a man she hardly knows Her six month old daughter Maddie has been crying each day and Lydia does not why She feels like a bad mother I know that feeling Lydia and Samuel want to improve their marriage but they do not share these thoughts we each other They both have fears regrets and hopes When they introduce Beverly and Joe to each other they get to join them on a couple of dates It gives Samuel and Lydia a chance to get to know each other They are each afraid to make the first move though for fear of rejection Samuel is also worried about his elderly parents His father has heart problems and his mother is unable to care for him like she used to Beverly and Joe were delightful additions to the story Joe is a lively man with a humorous side I liked the addition of the mystery involving the homeless Amish woman It added depth and interest to this engaging Amish novel I uickly found myself engrossed in this appealing story A Beautiful Arrangement is a poignant tale with regrets friendship faith family fear hopefulness and romance
