Great story.

This book was hard for me to put aside. This is an intense story. Abby's character felt so 'real'and I was immediately drawn in to her situation. I like that she is a compassionate person despite being abused and misused for the greater part of her life. She is an endearing person as she looks and takes a huge risk just to have a family of her own. The trip she takes and the welcome she has just starts the book off with a powerful hook. The characters of Jakob, his grandfather, mother and children give variety to the story. This is a family caught in mourning. It's a wonderful story that shows that God will cradle you during great loss and open new doors if you are willing to accept change and let go of fear. This is also a tasteful story that shows that a person can rise above living with horrendous abuse and choose to be loving, forgiving and better than the terrible person or persons who have caused pain and fear. I like having Amish based stories that reflect life that is more reasonable than all sweetness and light. This is true to reality. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for my ARC of this book.

unaway Amish bride, well kind of, but not quite, especially as you quickly turn the pages, and not all is as it appears. The author touches on some tough subjects here, and we meet them head on with putting faces to how people deal with grief, especially children. One little boy was naughty, but you will chuckle on how this young fellow deals with what he perceives as a threat to his deceased mom. Poor Abby! We also put a face to abuse, both physical and mental, and how to deal with someone that has had that happened to them, all the while wondering how such evil could exist in supposedly Godly people? Will warn you that once you turn the first page you will not be able to put the book down, it is a real compelling read. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
