5.0 out of 5 starsEnjoyed
Reviewed in the United States on October 22, 2016
This book reminds me of our desire to be loved, needed and honesty. We all make mistakes, often times when we allow our own selves to be our own worst enemy, it hurts us more than any person could ever do. This book reminded me the only one who has not forgiven me is me. Following the story of each person in this series we realize how important it is to be truly loved, and be part of a family. This has been such a pleasure reading, looking forward to the next book.
4.0 out of 5 starsSECRET PAST WILL THAT DESTROY LOVE FOR HER
Reviewed in the United States on October 18, 2017
Katie had secrets, before she was baptized in the church. She had secrets of her feelings for Jonathan. A widow and having two small children to take care. Opportunity comes to watch them, could it ever be more. He was still grieving for his wife, they married young, and different.personalities. Interesting plot and enjoyed that it carried over with Anna and .Henry from book 1". Readers of all ages will enjoy this book and series.
Love, lost and found, seemed to be the theme here. Katie ran a gamut of emotions, including trying to hide past faults, and ultimately was not "being herself." What a good lesson for all of us: be open, honest, and be yourself. God will guide you and be with you through it all.
I enjoyed this book. After reading the first book in the series, I felt that this one started out a little slow. I was about a quarter of the way into the book before I really got into the story. Once I did get into the story, I was anxious to know what would happen next and finished the book quickly. While it is not what I would call great literature, it is generally well written and entertaining. I think most women over the age of 14 would enjoy this book.
I have read each of the 4 books in this (Sister's of the Heart) series. Plus all other Amish fiction books by Shelley Shephard Gray. She has become one of my favorite Amish Fiction writers. As with all books that are written as part of a series, I read them in sequence to avoid confusion for me when the some of the characters overlap into a next book.
