What a delightful book to read. I really enjoyed reading this second book in the Land of Canaan series by Beth Wiseman. While it is the second book it could be as easily enjoyed by itself. This is only the second Beth Wiseman book I have read, the first being the Seek Me With All Your Heart the first book in the series. I definitely will be looking forward to reading more from here.
The wonder of your love, that is God's love is the main theme of the book. Throughout the book the characters, Katie Ann, Eli, and Martha are amazed by the wonder of His love and pray that others will see it too, in particular a teenager name Danielle that Martha takes in.
Katie Ann, who we met in the first book,gave birth recently and alone, her husband of twenty years has left her has now also died. Her dear friend Martha is helping her out daily but wants Katie Ann to move on and find a new husband. Martha gets her wish when Eli shows up in town for a wedding. Martha just knows he is perfect for her. Will Eli and Katie Ann have a future?
Eli Detweiler, a widow for the past 17 years, has just finished raising his six children and plans to travel and take time to relax. When he meets Katie Ann in Canaan, he starts getting confused on what he wants. Does Eli really want to travel or will settling back down and raising a child again make him happy?
Martha, the wonderful and cranky older lady that we first met in the first book has turned into a dear and kind friend to Katie Ann. Martha has almost become a mother figure for Katie Ann and treats her son as if he was her grandson. What surprises will Martha have in store for us? The best way to find out would be to read this wonderful book.
