Rachel is the main character of this novel and very easy to like. She is sweet, kind, and caring. She also lives in an Amish community and carries out their values. Rachel married her childhood sweetheart, Micah, at a young age and used to feel secure in her marriage. When a stranger comes to her community, the stranger interrupts everything Rachel knew about her life and past.

When the stranger doesn't leave, Rachel has many decisions to make. Those decisions lead to strife in her marriage life and confusion in her heart. Micah is a character the reader will like. He remains stable and brave for Rachel, even in their little tiffs. The reader will love getting to know all of the characters in this novel. The author does a wonderful job connecting the reader to the characters. The secondary characters may appear to play small parts, but they have a large impact on the book.

The events are well-played out. The author ties up all loose ends and the reader will put the book down feeling satisfied. The characters will be hard to forget after placing the book down, the overall Amish environment is very richly described. This book is great for adult readers.
