cover for Her Forbidden Amish Child by Leigh Bale

Four years ago, having a child out of wedlock changed everything for Tessa Miller—including her engagement to Amish farmer Caleb Yoder. Now she’s determined to provide a better life for her son…even if it means working for her ex-fiancĂ©. Only spending time with Caleb makes it harder to keep her past a secret. Will revealing the truth lead to forgiveness…and a second chance together? (Goodreads)


Book one of Secret Amish Babies was cute. It was a very wholesome and sweet story. There was some major miscommunication between the two main characters and that idea was continued in book two. However, the stuff that happens in Her Forbidden Amish Child is just messed up. If anything, it just points to flaws in Amish culture. Knowing that there are people who do behave like the people in this book is already upsetting, but taking that and using it as a basis for a supposedly comfy romance is sickening. The repetitiveness from the first book also spilled over to this one.


Rating: ★★☆☆☆ 2/5


Should you read it?


I would recommend skipping this one. This book contains the following triggers (please note that there may be more, this is just what I figured was most important to mention): Sexual assault, PTSD, Alcoholism, Sexual harassment
