Home on Huckleberry Hill (The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill #9) Reviews
It was great to read the next book in the Huckleberry Hill series. This one was really different than those I've read in the past. Instead of making a match for one of her grandchildren, Anna Helmuth attempts to fix a marriage and goes all out to do so.
This warm-hearted story shows the love of family bonds and also the trials that come when an Amish couple no longer gets along as one might hope they do. The obstacles that poor Mary Anne has to work through are many as the people from church let ...more

Huckleberry Hill latest book!
Wonderful as always! Hard to put the book down. This is one of my favorite series of books! Hope there will be another addition to the series!
Home on Huckleberry Hill was my first Jennifer Beckstrand book. I was intrigued by the storyline after the summary explains Mary Anne moves into a tent in the woods so her husband won't have to be bothered with her. At times the story is so funny I was laughing out loud and at other times the issues of being taken for granted in marriage and infertility were serious and in need of a resolution. The juxtaposition of these two extremes in one book is hard to pull off, but I think Beckstrand did a ...more
