The Courtship Basket is the second book in the series. The author is kind enough to give enough back ground information that if you have not read the first book, you can follow along with this story and enjoy it.
Rachael, like every Amish girl, longs for marriage and a family of her own. But her heart is broken when her longtime beau starts courting her best friend. In an attempt to move on, she starts teaching at the Amish school for special needs children. She finds job and fulfillment in her job.
Matt is overwhelmed with the load of carrying for his family when his mother dies. He enrolls his 6 year old brother in the Amish school for special needs children and Rachael is his teacher. When she learns John’s mother has died and his father is ill, she uses an old basket her parents call their Courting Basket to bring meals to John and Matt.
This is an easy to read book, perfect for relaxing by the pool this summer. I look forward to reading #3 and learning the rest of the story of these precious characters.
