Between his busy toy shop and the farm he owns with his twin brother, Gideon Troyer’s life is full. Now, the handsome Amish woodworker is ready to share it with someone special, someone like Hannah Stoltzfus, the lovely quilt shop owner a few doors down. Their friendship has already grown into something deeper. But before Gideon can tell Hannah how he really feels, she makes an unexpected discovery in his shop: a baby . . . one who shares an unmistakable Troyer family resemblance.

Hannah has never forgotten the kindness and support Gideon offered when she first opened her shop. So she’s happy to help him care for the sweet abandoned boppli until they find his family. But as they untangle the mystery surrounding the child, Hannah wonders at Gideon’s hesitation to take their relationship to the next level. He’s a natural with the baby, and Hannah can see Gideon’s ready for a familye of his own . . . but can she help him believe it?


The Amish Baby Finds a Home by Barbara Cameron is a delightfully charming Amish romance.  Although this latest release is the second book in the Hearts of Lancaster County series, it can be read as a standalone.

So, when she discovers a baby in the back of Gideon’s toy shop, she immediately takes charge of his care. Neither she nor Gideon knows who the baby’s mother is, but they are certain they know who the father is. Will he step up and take responsibility for his child?

Gideon has a lot to offer to Hannah but when something out of his control alters his plans for them, will he allow this unanticipated change to ruin his future?

The Amish Baby Finds a Home is a captivating romance with a heartwarming cast of characters. Gideon and Hannah are multi-faceted, appealing characters with realistic flaws.
