Review:  Two Suitors for Anna is the third book in A Keepsake Pocket Quilt Series. This is the only book I have read from the series. It is also the first novel written by Molly Jebber that I have read. In the story, Anna Plank was a young Godly women with a loving mother and sisters that she was very close with. I enjoyed reading how her family honored God in all they did. I liked Anna but I couldn’t understand why she would even consider being with a guy like Noah. The more I read about Daniel, the more I liked him and hoped that Anna would choose him.

I have to question if Noah and Daniel would be so congenial toward one another in real life, even if they are Amish. This book didn’t grab my attention and it took me a period of several days to finish it. I felt like I wasn’t getting all the information at times to make the story complete. Anna’s outspoken younger sister Beth was fun to read about. I appreciated the themes of love, forgiveness, and trusting God to meet our every need. Also, I liked seeing the characters realize that letting go of the past, whether it’s recent or distant, is the way to a better future. Two Suitors for Anna is a book for fans of sweet romance.
