Jacob's Return - A Sensual Amish Historical Romance by Annette Blair
Jacob Sauder abandons his Amish heritage when the woman he loves, Rachel Zook, agrees to marry his brother, Simon. Though Jacob adapts to the ways of the "English," even fathering twins, he remains an outsider. When the mother of his twins dies, Jacob knows only one way to raise them - the Amish way. He brings them home to the community he vowed to leave forever. For his children he can do anything, even see, Rachel, the woman he loves married to his brother.
Years ago, Simon lied to ensure a future with Rachel as his wife. Now Rachel is barren, a disappointment. Unaware of the lie Simon told to drive Jacob away, Rachel believes Jacob abandoned her when he left. Shocked when he returns with two-year-old twins, Rachel knows there can be nothing between them, for marriage is a life-long commitment. But the twins need a mother and Rachel loves children. As she cares for Aaron and Emma, as if they were her own, her feelings for Jacob deepen into a love that cannot be.
Jacob's Return is the story of a prodigal son, a forbidden love, and a fanatical preacher. As shocking as it is compelling, Jacob's Return is both uplifting and unforgettable. This is a universal story about love and faith in impossible circumstances.
