Amish widow Mattie vows never to love again . . . until a suspicious outsider with a shadowy past comes crashing into her fragile world.
Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son’s mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.
Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won’t rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo’s worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.
When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible—not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo’s dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future . . . or will she simply run away?
This book was an interesting read. The story is centered around a young widowed Amish mom of 2 small children. She is still dealing with the loss of her husband and having difficulties dealing with daily life alone raising her children. Her son becomes ill and the doctor she uses is on vacation. The doctor filling in accuses the mom of child abuse. Things only get worse as Bo the social worker enters the story.
Through the love of God and this willing man listening to God, this story has a dramatic ended. I would recommend this book for those who love Amish fiction.
I received a copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my review.
