Bethany House / 2011 / Paperback

Product Description

Rose Kauffman pines for prodigal Nick Franco, the Bishop's foster son who left the Amish under a cloud of suspicion after his foster brother's death. His rebellion led to the "silencing" of their beloved Bishop. But is Nick really the rebel he appears to be? Rose's lingering feelings for her wayward friend refuse to fade, but she is frustrated that Nick won't return and make things right with the People.
Nick avowed his love for Rose--but will he ever be willing to sacrifice modern life for her Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, is living in her parents' Dawdi Haus. Her estranged "English" husband, injured and helpless after a car accident, has reluctantly come to live with her and their young daughter during his recovery. Can their marriage recover, as well? Is there any possible middle ground between a woman reclaiming her old-fashioned Amish lifestyle and a thoroughly modern man?
My Review: Outstanding! This is one of Beverly Lewis' best books yet. It was hard to put this book down but I found myself wanting the story to go on and on.I just loved the story line and its characters. I felt like I was right there watching every scene play out. What is great about Ms. Lewis' books is that the story lines always draw you closer to the Lord as you read how the characters in the book handle their lives with the Lords help.
In this book you see the wayward Hen finds peace in her life and marriage.God works it out in such a surprising way. We see Rose standing firm in her beliefs, dealing with disappointments and hardships but in the end is blessed for her faithfulness.
I would highly recommend this book. The hardest part is waiting for her next book to come out!

I received this book free from Bethany House for this review.
