Christy Award winner Dale Cramer’s enthralling Paradise Valley introduced Caleb Bender, an Amish man who, in the 1920s, led his family from Ohio to Mexico to form a new settlement. Its compelling sequel, The Captive Heart, finds Caleb and his family struggling to adapt to their new lives in a country torn apart by revolution. But their true test is yet to come. When a bandit kidnaps his daughter and wounds his son, Caleb knows he must act before his children are put in further danger. Yet what can an Amish man do when violence is strictly forbidden?

As I wrote in the review for Paradise Valley, this second book is just as good. Make sure you listen to them in the proper order. If you like Amish stories, this is one of the better books to listen to.
I guess I am so used to Beverly that I can not stand anyone who just has a lot of things happen to the characters to try to cause suspense and interest. This book was Ho hum for me. At least it was not full of cussing which so many think makes it interesting.
