What would cause the Amish to move to Colorado, leaving family and friends behind? Some Amish are making the trek for cheaper land. Others are fleeing strict bishops with long memories.
For Emily Detweiler and her family, the move is more personal. Tragedy struck Emily in Ohio, shaking loose everything she believed was firm, including her faith. Her family took the bold step of leaving Ohio to resettle in a small Amish community in Canaan, Colorado, where they hope the distance will help erase painful memories.
David Stoltzfus's family moved to Colorado for reasons he doesn't understand. But Canaan is turning out to be something other than the promised land they all anticipated. Fearing that a health condition will cut his life short, David plans to return home to Paradise, Pennsylvania, as soon as he can. But then he meets Emily, who stirs feelings in his heart despite his apprehension about the future.
Emily's growing love for David surprises her, but she fears that he will find out the truth about her past and reject her. But what if the truth is that they are made for each other? And that God longs to give them the desires of their hearts if only they will seek Him first?

this is the continuation of chacters of another series of books by the author i loved it and can hardly wait for the next
I enjoyed this book. can't wait for the next one. I loved the people and just knowing that some came from another one of her series was nice, it made me want to follow right along to the next book!
It was an excellent story, a few surprises, at least for me. And leading into the next book, which sounds almost as good. . . Almost. I already purchased it. KatieAnn!
I loved Emily and her personality, just like mine. Very relatable for me the characters. I am really beginning to like Beth as an Author. Kristen did a good job narrating. A 4.25/5.0
Middletown actually exists in Ohio and only 40 minutes from where I mostly grew up. I now reside in Oregon. So, great story there too.
