Since she was a little girl, Marisa Angelo has been haunted by the image of her mother walking away, suitcase in hand, to return to her Amish roots.
Marisa and her "Englischer" father never saw or heard from her again. Now Marisa has received a shocking call from police. Her mother's bloodstained suitcase was found hidden inside the wall of a Pennsylvania Dutch farmhouse.
Desperate for answers, Marisa heads to Lancaster County. But no one - not the police or Marisa's tight-lipped Amish relatives - can explain what happened to her mother.
Only one man is as determined as Marisa to unravel the mystery: Link Morgan, the handsome ex-military loner who found the suitcase in the house he inherited from his uncle. Now both Link's and Marisa's family members are implicated in the decades-old disappearance.
The secret lies somewhere in the quaint Amish settlement. But someone will do anything to ensure the truth remains hidden forever.

I picked this book because of the narrator (Therese Plummer is the best) but I feel I wasted a credit. Therese is the only reason I gave this book 2 stars, the story not so much. You know it is not a good book with you figure out "who done it" in the first few chapters. This was not a romance either (although I think it was sold as one.) There was no chemistry between the two main characters. Save your credit.
It had a beginning a middle and and end, very good story line
No one in particular, everyone was needed to make the story work and it did
She is the best reader of any of the books I've ordered. I feel like I'm listening to a movie with many characters, not just one boring voice.I don't know where all these authers are getting there readers, but I think a good reader makes or breaks an audio. I now follow the list of her books and have chosen 3 books based on her and the story. I was not dissappointed yet.
Was very interested and put more time to listen than I normally do. I have also recommented it to friends
Authers, start being more selective with your readers, they are stopping some from ordering what might be a purchase. I have returned some books just because I couldn't listen to there voices. I also have not made a purchase after listening to the reader sample.
I am addicted to books, audible books, kindle and my 18 beautiful cats! And one dog and a husband too. Lol
Perry who typically writes christian books, has moved mainstream and begun to write mysteries. This is a stand alone second book. The family is great, mom is a up in every ones business . The main character finds out her mother may have been killed rather than abandon her when she was young. Meets the families' young son and love abides.
Very good listen, nice mystery and great men.
