Riddled with doubt and lingering regrets, will Suzanne and Paul find strength in God to explore a second chance at love? It wasn't easy to move back to the Old Order Mennonite community from which quiet, responsible Suzanne Zimmerman was shamefully sent away as a pregnant teen. Returning 20 years later to take care of her mother, Suzanne and Alexa - the daughter she raised as her own - have spent months rebuilding relationships with her family.

This intriguing romantic and adventurous story like the first two would be a great catalyst for life lessons if the unnecessary profanity was eluded. What a great story to share with teens about life and human trafficking extra for the profanity. I truly wish the authir would rewrite this series without it. it would benefit some real life situations and help take the harlequin and profanity out please
