When it comes to matchmaking, Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s unstoppable octogenarians Anna and Felty Helmuth never seem to run out of opportunities—or grandchildren...

Reuben Helmuth is plenty bitter. John King, his best friend—or so he thought—is engaged to the girl Reuben loved. Humiliated, Reuben flees from Ohio to his grandparents’ home on Huckleberry Hill, where he knows he’ll find comfort. He’s enjoying wallowing in his misery—until John’s sister, Fern, shows up. She won’t stop pestering Reuben about forgiveness—or trying to help him find love again. Yet Fern's efforts only reawaken Reuben’s long-buried feelings—for her…

With her brother too ashamed to face Reuben, it’s fallen to Fern to help mend fences. But as she and the Helmuths do all they can—even organizing a knitting club event filled with eligible girls—it may take one more challenge to inspire Reuben to forget his heartache, recognize his own blunders, and embrace the true love that’s right in front of him…

Return to Huckleberry Hill is a tale about pride and love and unlike most Amish romances, this book is not sugar-coated and I'm not ashamed to say this book made me cry.

Return to Huckleberry Hill is the story of Ruben, a prideful Amish man who finds out his best friend and girlfriend have fallen in love, not trying to deceive him on purpose. But Ruben is more concerned about being made a laughing-stock, and being betrayed by his best friend, that he hightailed it to his grandparents' house in Bonduel.

But when Fern, the sister of his best friend turns up and tries to help him get past his pride, Ruben fires back with hurtful words, but Fern persists in trying to help him! All the while hiding her love from him, but will Ruben realize before it's too late?

Return to Huckleberry Hill truly is a beautiful story and by the end, I was in tears for poor Fern. The characters in this book are well-developed and the story is unique and truly heartwarming.

Return to Huckleberry Hill is a part of The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series, but author Jennifer Beckstrand has written them that you can read them as a stand-alone, but why would you want to? This series is truly marvelous!

I give Return to Huckleberry Hill 5 stars
