Brush of Angel's Wings by Ruth Reid

Rachel and Jordan's feelings for each other are hostile at first, but angelic intervention helps the two discover peace . . . and perhaps love.

The youngest and last unmarried of four sisters, Rachel Hartlzer spends most of her time helping with barn chores. Her role abruptly changes when her father hires Jordan Engles, the son he always wanted.

As Jordan takes on brotherly roles around the house, like escorting Rachel to the youth singing, the enmity between the two grows. Besides, Jordan has one foot in the Englisch world and is determined not to get involved with an Amish girl.

Neither realizes that God has sent an angel, Nathaniel, to help mend their hearts. The angel’s intervention helps them find peace and healing in accepting God's will for their lives.

Brush of Angel's Wings is not your typical Amish fiction novel. Rachel was far from typical ... she could not cook, she could not sew, and she loved racing horses and helping her father with farm chores. After her brother died, she tried desperately to fill his role in the family. She was convinced that no Amish man would want to marry her, and then Jordan Engles arrived on the scene.

Rachel responded to Jordan's arrival on the farm with jealousy and envy. She hated the idea that her father's time and attention would be spent with someone other than herself. She did whatever she could to discourage Jordan from sticking around. But Rachel had finally met her match, in more ways that one.

Brush of Angel's Wings is a fantastic book, and I highly recommend it!  I loved this story, and can't wait to read the first book in the "Heaven on Earth" series, The Promise of An Angel.
