Ella's Wish - Jerry S. Eicher

Summary from GoodReads: Ella Yoder has moved into her dream house. In the stillness of the great house, Ella ponders her options. How is she to survive on her own? How will she ever forget Aden? What is to become of her?
Two would-be suitors soon make their intentions known, but Ella is unsure of her own feelings. As she agrees to take care of Preacher Stutzman's three motherless girls, Ella's heart is touched by their love for her. Could their affection be the answer to Ella's quest? Can God speak through the love of a child?

Readers of Amish fiction will fall in love themselves with Ella Yoder and hope with her that she finds the love and happiness she seeks.

Ella Yoder is now living in her new big empty house that was built for her from theh money left to her by her love Aden who suddenly passed away.  To help fill the house, and get some extra income, Ella allows a recently married couple to share the house with her.  Also, Preacher Stutzman needs help caring for his three young girls since he is a new widower.  Ella agrees to have them stay with her during the week.  Since she is home caring for the Stutzman girls, she decides to open a quilt shop in the basement where she takes orders from Englishers for new quilts.  What more could Ella ask for in her life?  Will Ella find love with the young bishop?  With Preacher Stutzman?  What will become of the girls who Ella loves dearly?

I thought this was a nice continuance of the story.  I liked how you could not help but fall in love with Ella and especially with those three young Stutzman girls.  I am looking forward to reading the last book in this series, Ella Finds Love Again, to see how things work out for Ella.
