An Angel by Her Side
Full Product Description
'Heaven on Earth' is novel number 3 in the Amish based romance series 'A Heaven on Earth' from the popular storyteller, Ruth Reid. This latest novel in the series where heaven breaks through to make the impossible possible, picks up the story of young Katie Bender. The drama opens with the apparent end of twenty-nine-year-old Katie’s dream of marriage. Since her fiancé died tragically seven years ago, she’s become settled into her role as the Amish settlement’s reliable, spinster schoolteacher. And that's how things look set to stay, until a tornado wreaks havoc across the county destroying the schoolhouse and several of the area’s farms.
Now vital supplies are low and the communities needs are great. Rebuilding the schoolhouse is a low priority but Katie knows a lot about surviving tragedy and she simply won’t accept that her days of teaching the Amish children are over. But even Katie can't bring about this restoration alone, no matter what she thinks of her own abilities. With the help of the angel Elias, one willful schoolteacher is about to learn a lesson in what it means to carry a cross for the person she loves.
Seemingly by chance, Seth Stutzman, a discredited master builder ,happened into town to install beehives on his brother-in-law’s property and to offer him healing and support following his wife’s recent death. Beehives aren’t his passion, but they’re his livelihood since making a fatal error while working on a neighbour’s barn. Seth arrives just as the tornado is wreaking havoc on Hope Falls. In spite of his previous construction error, he finds it difficult to avoid joining the work crew.
Both Katie and Seth have perfectly good reasons for avoiding each other, and romance is not in either person's building plan. But what God ordains is impossible to resist. Celestial influences change the course of their decisions as they learn patience toward eachother and grace toward the community. Seth and Katie can no longer deny that the sparks of passion that fly between them, which just might be love... and there is an angel at work in both their lives. Ruth Reid brings you a classic Amish romance with an added heavenly twist.

"One of the best Amish novels I've read..." (Christian manifesto review of Ruth Reid's first book in the 'A Heaven on Earth' series - 'Promise of an Angel'
Praise for Ruth Rieid's 'Angel By Her Side'. (other retailer comments)
"This is the 3rd book in the Heaven On Earth series by Ruth Reid and as with the last 2 it is a great read."
"I thought it very interesting that these characters were not your run-of-the-mill-perfect characters that are often presented in books and rather had very real issues."
"She [Katie] has had more heartbreak in her life than anyone should ever have."
"I have read the previous books in this series and liked them. But I have to say this was the best one of the group. I'm still not caring for the angel and demonic spirit in the books so well, but it was better in this book than the others. I liked the reading of this book. So much better. The author got better with each book she wrote and I really enjoyed this one. I hated to see it end. I couldn't put the book down . It was really very good."
"This book was a smashing hit. Once again I was pulled into the community of Hope Falls and hung on every bit of dialogue between the characters and also between the angel and demon. I thought it very interesting that these characters were not your run-of-the-mill-perfect characters that are often presented in books and rather had very real issues."
