In 1915 Ohio, anyone entering the Amish Charm Bakery is greeted by the sweet warmth and delicious fragrance of cinnamon and vanilla wafting from freshly baked cookies and pies. And newcomers to this Amish community will find friendship on the menu, too—and perhaps for a lucky few, even lasting love . . .
Rachael Schlabach’s first chance for a husband ended in a tragic accident that left her with a limp. Though happy to work in the beloved Amish Charm Bakery, she hasn’t abandoned her romantic dreams, but she has focused on a widower with two adorable kinner she would love to raise as her own. Then handsome, single Caleb Yutzy arrives on the scene.
Caleb is eager to court pretty, warm-hearted Rachael, and tells her so. But their frank conversations reveal a truth that dashes her hopes—Caleb very much wants kinner, the one thing Rachael can’t give him. Even when Caleb assures her it’s no matter, she can’t bring herself to be so selfish. Yet love is beyond all planning, and with faith Rachael and Caleb may discover the lifetime of love they were meant to share . . .

Rachael in Rachael’s Decision has a limp. You’ll be surprised why when you read the story!
Rachael’s Decision is the sixth book in my Amish Charm Bakery Series. Each book can be read as a standalone. But if you read them in order, you’ll recognize how their lives intertwine. You’ll remember the sheriff and Dr. Harrison, and why they matter, and you’ll fall in love with Charm, Ohio.
Liza’s Second Chance
I loved writing this series in a bakery setting, except I gained weight just reading about the desserts and found myself craving cakes and cookies. Rachael has an interesting past, and she has a loving heart. You’ll want to laugh with her and root for her. You’ll love Caleb, and you’ll root for him, too! This book has twists, turns, and it’s full of surprises.
The most fun I have is meeting readers like you who I consider friends through social media, at conferences, and that I’ve met at Amish talks, Amish Girlfriend Getaways, and many other places. If I wasn’t writing and speaking, I would’ve never meet people like you. That’s what keeps me writing. Thank you so much for your interest in my books.
My daughter, Misty, had a little girl, Jolene, and she’s keeping me busy, and she’s so much fun. Some days, she on my lap and we write together! Thank you for joining me here today! I hope you’ll connect with me on Facebook!
Rachael’s Decision is written by Molly Jebber. This book is part of the Amish Charm Bakery Series. While I’ve read the entire series, this book can be read as a stand alone. The author does a great job in filling out any backstories. This book is set in 1915.
Rachael was in a horrible accident that left her with a noticeable limp and some other scarring. She also lost her fiancé in this accident. She has resigned herself to work in the Amish Charm Bakery. She also assists her neighbor, Nathan after his wife passes away. She loves his children.
One day she meets Caleb. He is new to town and the two of them are drawn to each other instantly. Caleb lives with his brother and sister in law. He has dreams of buying his own farm and land some day. Their courtship moves along fast. Then everything comes crashing around them.
Caleb is faced with unspeakable pain and has to reconfigure some of his plans. Rachael knows she needs to tell him about the extent of some of his injuries to ensure they walk into a life time with no secrets. Rachael is worried that marrying Caleb will deprive him of having his own family.
I loved these characters. Caleb was so in love with Rachael that he wasn’t taking no for an answer. I wasn’t thrilled with Frannie, his sister in law. While the Amish do not pay attention to what goes on in the outside world the author did a great job bringing in real world events to the story.
Thank You to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
