The Memory Jar by Tricia Goyer

When Sarah's friend Patty met with a tragic accident,drowning  when another boat hits theirs.  Sarah thought she would never get over her loss.  They had been best friends for years, and were almost inseparable, and Patty had been Sarah's brother's girlfriend.  

 Patty's family moved away, taking her brother Michael, and Sarah's hope for love and marriage.  Sarah didn't know that Patty's family had left Patty's memory jar with her mother, to give her, when the time was right.

Every year, Amish bachelors descend upon the town of West Kootenai to find work, to hunt, and to hike the mountains. When Sarah meets Jathan Schrock, she realizes there's still hope; hope for her heart and for her dreams. Going on a hike, Sarah hurts her leg, gets lost, and she and Jathan end up spending the night on the mountain.

I  love Amish fiction, and Tricia Goyer is one of the best writers in this genre that I know of, so I always grab her books whenever I have a chance, and this one didn't disappoint.  

I was given a copy of this book to read and review, no other compensation was given.  I am not required to leave a positive review, all opinions expressed here are my own.

I have never read an amish fiction. Am I missing something? This sounds like a good read.
