In Lydia’s Charm, widowed and jobless, Lydia King moves her son and herself to Charm, Ohio, to be close to her mother and help with her grandfather. Menno Troyer, a furniture store owner, is also recently widowed and the father of four energetic boys.
Levi Stutzman, another newcomer to the area, is the only one in his family not handicapped by dwarfism and has dedicated his life to caring for them. As fall colors the countryside, will anonymous gifts left for Lydia bring her hope for a new life and romance, or will another tragedy flood her with infinite despair?
I enjoyed this book. I’d definitely call it a “light read.” Very easy, fast reading and an uncomplicated plot. Some of it was rather predictable, but I definitely thought there were some aspects that were unique. I liked the characters. The Frogmore Stew was an interesting dish to hear about! It ended well, though some of the plot was a little depressing. Overall, an easy read.
