Sadie Schrock swore that she would never marry. All of her other Amish friends could court and marry; she was content to manage the family business and eventually take it over when her parents were ready to retire. But all of that changes when a reckless driver kills both of her parents and seriously injures her younger sister. With mounting hospital bills adding to the pile of debt her parents left behind, Sadie is left with no choice: She must marry. And not just any man - the man who saw her at her weakest and walked away.
Aden knows that what his brother did to Sadie years ago was inexcusable. And every day since that incident, Aden has lived with guilt for not intervening sooner. When he is faced with the chance to protect Sadie once again, he can't let her down - even if it means living with the scorn of the woman he loves for the rest of his life.

"Frightening, shocking, and redemptive, Fuller's inspirational tale portrays complex characters facing real world problems and finding love where they least expected or wanted it to be." (Booklist)
The story was moving, had great characters, kept my attention and made me want to not put it down; however, the reader was horrid. She sounded like a computer, putting emphasis at the wrong times, sounded very monotone and flat.
The characters and story were pretty well developed
Thenarrator had the strangest inflections. It took a long time to get used to her. I would have not continued except that the story got my attention. I would never listen to another book read by this narrator.
as I said above
I have longed loved Amish stories, but Fuller brought a whole new side to Amish life alive for me in this book. The characters struggled through some rough things, but the over arching premise of redemption, forgiveness, and love was just beautiful. The story kept my attention, and the narrator did a great job.
