"A Dream of Miracles" by Ruth Reid

Disclaimer I was provided a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. The words contained here are my own. This is the first book I have read from Ruth Reid. I will be reading more of her books. Mattie is a young widow with 2 toddlers. She is barely able to keep the farm going even with the help of her Amish community. Then her son gets sick and the new doctor is not helpful. When she takes her son to the hospital, the doctor calls the authorities and accuses her of child abuse. Bo is a very successful social worker. He really cares about the kids. Mostly because he was once in the foster care system, so he truly understands. When he is assigned Mattie’s son as a case of suspected child abuse, he is able to understand the tension between the Amish and the English community, especially the health care and legal issues. This is an easy to read book. Ruth Reid is an amazing story teller. Thus is the third book in this series. I will enjoy reading more in this series.
