Book Review: The Stranger by Melanie Dobson

Legacy of Love Book 7

The Stranger by Melanie Dobson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Commune not cult
I respect the author for her in-depth treatment of the society and how God can be authentic in today’s world. I’m studying Apologetics right now, and it impacts how I see myself in society today. Thanks for a well-researched Christian Historical Romance.

“What a touching, lovely romance! Dobson’s compelling, vivid storytelling took me to an unforgettable Amana community that I didn’t want to leave. Highly recommended!” Colleen Coble, author of The Lightkeeper’s Daughter

Times are hard in 1894. Desperate for work, former banker Jacob Hirsch rides the rails west from Chicago with his four-year-old daughter, Cassie. When a life-threatening illness strands the pair in Homestead, Iowa, the local Amana villagers welcome the father and daughter into their peaceful society. Liesel, a young Amana woman, nurses Cassie back to health, and the Homestead elders offer Jacob work. But Jacob’s growing interest in Liesel complicates his position in the Amanas.

Will he fight to stay in the only place that feels like home, even if it means giving up the woman he loves? Or will Liesel leave her beloved community to face the outside world with Jacob and Cassie at her side?

Legacy of Love is a series of historical romance novels based on the courageous people and significant events that wove together the rich tapestry of America’s freedom and faith.This Carol Award-winning book was originally titled Love Finds You in Homestead, Iowa.
