In a world where every detail of life-down to the width of a hat brim-is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he'll have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else-something he can't name.
Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can't put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.
Now that they've found each other, are they willing to lose it all?

Ok...My favorite part of this book? That the end had a statement that there will be more Isaac and David in a future book!! This was such a great story! I was a little hesitant because of the Amish storyline and not wanting a story that was just "I hate being Amish and I want to leave". This book did not have that at all. Yes, there was questioning. Yes, there was doubt. Yes, there was wanting to leave. Yes, there was "rule" breaking. But there was also faith, and struggle between not wanting to fail God and family, and belief in a lot of the Amish ideals. This was very well written and had great depth. I am really looking forward to reading more about the journey of these two guys. There is so much for them to learn and it is exciting to watch them go through it all. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Well-written, tense, empathetic and compassionate, deliciously erotic, with interesting glimpses into the world of living plain. Thank you for this wonderful book!
These MCs tore me to tears with love.
