Amishwoman Sara Lapp, all but shunned for studying with the local doctor to become a midwife, is shocked that, after months of waiting, her first call comes from “Mad” Adam Zuckerman, a self-appointed outcast. Adam doesn’t want her to attend at a birth, but to tend to his children because his wife has died in childbed. Adam wants to love his children, but he is afraid he will hurt them in the way his father hurt him. Without his late wife, Abby, to protect them, Adam must find someone else to care for the girls. He can think of only one woman brave enough, Spinster Sara Lapp, the little midwife whose passion for things beyond her control is greater than is good for her.
Though Sara knows the four little girls belong with their father, how can she leave them with a man who seems not to care for them? As much as she loves and wants the girls, she will only take them long enough to teach Adam to love them.
Then Adam falls from the barn loft and Sara moves in to look after him. But in the Amish community a man and woman living together must marry or be shunned. The Bishop takes a stand and Sara and Adam are forced to face the greatest challenge of their lives.

I found this book to be very enjoyable. It took me a bit of time to get used to the reader because she sounded a bit monotone but after I got into the book I got used to the rhythm of her voice. Also the pauses between chapters are very long. The story shows the struggles of domestic abuse and how love can help to heal the wounds. I found the love scenes very honest and tender - not too descriptive. I really liked this book.
I loved everything about this book. A great story, interesting insight into another culture and a narrator who held my interest throughout.
It made me laugh and cry. There were moments that were very sad- when a baby dies and nothing can be done to console the mother. There were very tender moments when one human being suddenly understands another. Overall the message is love is the most important thing in life.
I have never had an Amish book that had sexual content. Loved the book Minus the sexual content!
the story was good but even though the sceens were in context of marriage I would say Harlequin if you know what I mean not for young audiences rated R for sexual content in my opinion PG at least no an R cause it wasn't in passing I liked the story but im afraid to order another by this author the reader was very good
