A heart once deceived should not be easily fooled again . . .
Katrina Stoltzfus thought she had life and love all figured out: she was going to marry John and live happily ever after. But as her plans crumble before her eyes, she struggles to face an uncertain future. When a widow asks for help starting a new business, Katrina quickly agrees. She needs time to heal her broken heart, to untangle her messy life, to find a purpose.
What she doesn't need is attention from Andy Miller, a farmhand who arrives at the widow's farm just when help is most needed--and who always seems to say the right thing and be in the right place, at the right time. Is Andy for real or too good to be true? She's been deceived once before, and she isn't planning on experiencing it again.
Despite saying last month I was totally "Amished Out," I just loved this book. It wasn't your typical run of the mill Amish book, as it involved many "sins" of the bible interwoven into the story, that made you go.."well, that's not like the typical Amish we read about."
It also involved the normal traits that you come to think of when the Amish involved as well, kindness, forgiveness and understanding. This story kept you on your toes and it also teaches you a bit about moss, which I thought was interesting and different.
This book is the first in a series by Suzanne, called "The Bishop's Family," and the way this book ends, you HAVE to read the next one in the series to see what happens next.
Stars out of 5 : 5 A super book, well worth the read and a different take on your typical Amish stories. I can't wait to read the next one. By the way you think you know why the book's title is what it is; but you'll be shocked when all is revealed!!
