Review of Liza's Second Chance by Molly Jebber

About the Book


Title: Liza’s Second Chance

Author: Molly Jebber

Genre: Christian Amish Fiction

Release Date: January 30, 2018


The sweet welcome of straight-from-the-oven sugar cookies and hot cocoa. The warm invitation of apple pie and fresh cold milk. In 1912 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery is the heart of a close-knit, faith-nourished community, where people can find a refuge, a place to start again—and love that can make their lives new . . .


For Liza Schrock, the bakery her late husband bought was an unexpected haven from their unhappy arranged marriage. Now she’s perfectly content to cook up mouth-watering delights for her hometown, give to those alone or in trouble—and remain happily unwed. And though she’s willing to give handsome, newly-arrived widower Jacob Graber all the help he desperately needs, she is sure they can stay just friends . . .


But as Liza also tries to aid Jacob’s troubled teenage daughter, she starts caring far too much for his gentle ways and steadfast hopes. And when a wrenching secret she must keep comes between them, can Liza find the faith to risk opening her heart again—and reach for one more chance at real love?

Guest Post from Molly Jebber

Here’s a little about Liza’s story: Hello Friends, I loved writing about Liza. She has a lot to overcome in this book, but her faith in God, and compassion for others helps her to arrive at her decisions through difficult and happy times. I enjoyed visiting Charm, and it makes for a good setting for this story. The bakery is fun with all the sugary pies, pastries, and breads. The unique customers, and the place where friends are made, and where trouble happens. Most of all, I hope I’ve done a good job entertaining you as you read “Liza’s Second Chance”.


My Review


Liza's Second Chance was a heartwarming story of forgiveness, learning to trust again, and returning to the beliefs and community of the Amish.


Liza's first marriage was an arranged one and void of love. She poured all her energy into the bakery she ran and guarded her heart once she was widowed. She falls for Jacob, but he has a rebellious daughter, that is against their friendship.


The characters in the book were well developed and I connected right away to each of them. I enjoyed Ellie at her various stages of growth. Peter drew empathy from me over the loss of his mother. The scene was very well written.


I enjoyed this wonderful love story steeped in Amish tradition which I loved reading about. The story was based on love of family and community.
