When her sister Lily disappears only months after their widowed mother's passing, Eva Esch fears she has been wooed away from the People. Yet Lily's disappearance isn't Eva's only concern: She and her sisters must relocate once their older brother takes over the family farmhouse. Then Jed Stutzman, an Amish buggy maker from Ohio, shows up in Eden Valley with a photo of a Plain young woman. Eva feels powerfully drawn to the charming stranger--but the woman in the forbidden photograph is no stranger at all. . . .
If you are a Beverly Lewis fan, you will love this book. It's in her typical style and an easy read. You won't be shocked at the ending, and it is a book that invites you into the lives of the Amish. I thought it was interesting that Eva has her own candy store at home. She was a lovely leading character.
This book is not part of a series, but could easily be turned into a series.
Stars out of 5 : 4 I am all "Amished-out" at the moment, having just come back from vacation in Lancaster county. However it was nice to read about places that I had heard of and even visited. It's another solid book by Beverly and well worth the read.
