Brush of Angel’s Wings, by Ruth Reid, is the second Heaven on Earth novel. It is just as magnificent as the first. Set in the same Amish community, some of the characters are familiar right from the beginning if you have read the first book. If not, this book is still a great read as a stand-alone novel.
Rachel Hartzler is not a good cook, does not like to sew, and loves racing horses and working in the barn or out in the fields. She is obviously not a typical Amish woman and harbors no plans of marrying. Having helped her father with his work since her brother died, Rachel is extremely jealous when he hires Jordan Engles to help him with the work and shoos her inside to work with her mother.
As she works through her feelings, her father is hurt in an accident and her sister dies in childbirth. To top things off, just as she starts to feels some attraction to Jordan, he leaves with his father to become a truck driver, telling her he never intended to become Amish. Throughout all of this, the angel Nathaniel and the demon Tangus both try to influence Rachel and Jordan toward their respective masters. In the end, both Rachel and Jordan must decide whom they will follow.
I enjoyed this book very much and would definitely recommend it to all who read Amish fiction.
