This is an excellent book. I highly recommend it. It is best to to read them in order though it can be a stand alone book. This is the first Amish book I have ever read and I was highly impressed! Barbara Cameron did a great job. She showed that the Plain People are just regular people and make mistakes and are fallible just like the Englisch. The characters were well written. Chris was a tortured soul who was a veteran who served in Afghanistan and was injured and betrayed by his fellow soldiers and suffers from PTSD. Hannah is a 30 year old Amish woman who has spent the last few years helping raise her brother Matthew's kinner (children) and is beginning to wonder if she's going to be a en alt maedel (old maid). Sparks fly with their first meeting but their worlds are so different. Then strange things begin happening at both Mathew's farm and Pheobe's farm next door where Hannah lives. Are these events related to Chris or his past? The secondary characters were great and most are from the first book. There is some suspense in this novel. What secrets is Chris keeping and why did he really come? It all reaches a good suspenseful climax that leaves both Chris and Hannah lives reeling about what to do aboutheir futures. There is a glossary and discussion questions at the end of the book along with bonus chapter for book 3 A time For Peace.
