“A Dream of Miracles” by Ruth Reid, book review
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, rather predictable, but shows how different points of view can seem right to those do not want to see the other side. I will enjoy reading more in this series.
