Publisher's Summary

Amish widow Mattie vows never to love again - until a suspicious outsider with a shadowy past comes crashing into her fragile world.

Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son's mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.

Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social-services investigator whose high-society mother won't rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo's worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.

When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible - not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo's dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future - or will she simply run away?

The story or the narrated...

The basic story was good. The characters were not true to form. I don't know if it was the way it was written or the way it was narrated but the book of off. The first book was good, the last two not so much. I don't think I will listen to anymore from this author or narrater.

this was a hard book for this mom

loved the book! I almost stopped reading because of the hard story line but was worth finishing. As a momma losing your kids because of false accusations and feeling helpless is something I know, so it was tough one. Great storyline and research!

OH I JUST LOVED THIS STORY!!!

This story held my attention from the very beginning. It was wonderful! I can’t say enough good things about this lovely tale that will stay with me always. I would gladly read this again. A true testament of Love, devotion, and the miraculous power of God to intervene in situations and relationships. He always has a plan! Praises for this author and narrator. Great job!

Am not a big fan of the story line

Always enjoy Amish books, but I didn't care for the child welfare investigation story that ran through almost this whole book. The male character and his story sounded a bit unbelievable and Battle Creek is not north of the bridge in Michigan either. All and all not a complete waste of time, I stitch when I listen to audio books and it was interesting enough for that combo to continue through, but had I been driving I wouldn't have listened through the whole book.

This book was to long,and move very slow. The story line was good but was predictable.
