Publisher's Summary

War correspondent Jennie King thinks she's just a temporary guest in her grandmother's Amish community while she recuperates from the devastating injuries sustained in a car-bomb attack that changed her world. But when she meets Matthew Bontrager, the man she had a crush on as a teenager, she wonders if God has a new plan for her. Jennie has emotional and physical scars, and though she feels she has come home to this man and this place, she's not sure she can bridge the difference between their worlds.

great book

really appreciated this book. it is about a wounded war correspondent who returned to live with her amish grandmother while she recouperates from the car bomb that she miraculously survived. after undergoing surgeries, she goes to live with her grandmother who works hard to help with the pstd the gal is experincing. more surgeries are in the offing along with physical therapy to try to help with her speech as well as physically. in the meantime an amish widower with three children have fallen in love with her. a great story of hope, despair and love. I think you will like this book. no illicit sex. narrator is fine.

My Musings

There are many aspects of this book that I enjoyed. I liked the characters and the plot, but Jenny needed more internal conflict. While I understand she has gone through two life-changing events in her life, it would have helped the story if the author had shown some of her internal thoughts as she makes the huge decision to leave a career she loved after her close to death experience and then her decision to join the amish church and marry Matthew. This would have given more depth to her career. The narrator is a good reader. Happy reading/listening!
