This was a beautiful story, well-written, and a solid romance. Sarah King loves her garden. When..Show More » she finds herself falling in love with a physician who is not Amish she questions what she should do. This was my second listen for Kelly Long’s books and again I was impressed by the freshness in her writing and the passion in the romance. These characters are portrayed as real people with genuine emotions rather than the cookie cutter images seen in some of the Amish books.
Listeners should keep in mind that this is an inspirational romance, the book originally published by Thomas Nelson. Lovely spiritual arc for both the hero and the heroine.
Kelly is in the Colonial American Christian Writers group and I am so looking forward to her colonial Amish books when they release. In the meantime,..Show More » I listened to this as my first "read" of her work. She knocked my socks off (well if it weren't summer she would have!) Beautiful voice, gripping story line, great characterization, and the best romantic tension I have seen since Deanne Gist. Not your average Amish novel! I highly recommend this book and this writer and just downloaded another of her audible.com books. I saw she has a novella with several other authors, including Cindy Woodsmall. I do wonder why when I searched "Amish" this book did not pull up.
I think I have found another favorite author! Looking forward to listening to her next book and many more after that one!
Loved this book by Kelly Long. Grace experienced an awful marriage. Now a widow she and her autistic son have resettled in another community. When he..Show More »r past catches up with her she ends up married to Seth. He's an amazing hero and protects her when catastrophe threatens. Kelly Long's characters have perseverance and hope "in spades," something that I love! Narration was good and kept the story true to Long's author voice. There is an element in the story that I've never seen in Kelly Long's books and although it was somewhat distracting at times it did not diminish my appreciation for the overall story and characterization. I'd highly recommend this audio listen!
