Publisher's Summary

Rachel Hershberger's life in Paradise, Pennsylvania is far from happy. Her papa struggles with a terrible event from the past, and his emotional instability has created an irreparable breach between them. Rachel's one desire is to leave the Amish way of life and Paradise forever. Then her prayers are answered.

Rachel discovers that the strange, key-shaped birthmark above her heart identifies her as the heir to a vast fortune left by her Englischer grandfather, Robert St. Clair. If Rachel will marry a suitable descendent of the St. Clair family, she will inherit an enormous sum of money. But Rachel does not know that behind the scenes is her long-dead grandfather's sister-in-law, Augusta St. Clair, a vicious woman who will do anything to keep the fortune in her own hands.

As the deceptions and intrigues of the St. Clair family bind her in their web, Rachel realizes that she has made a terrible mistake. But has her change of heart come too late?

Story was good but I felt the reader was not a good match for the book.

This was a surprisingly good book.

This is not the typical type of book I read. Although I enjoyed it immensely.

The author does have a knack of getting a bit melodramatic and sometimes a bit preachy. He didn't really offer any contrast to that preaching. It bogged down the story a bit. Although it did fit the characters well.

The narrator did an excellent job. This was the second book of his I have listened to. He is a fine narrator and there's something about this tempo I enjoy. Especially at 1.25x speed.

If you are on the fence, buy it. It is better than half of the books out there I have listened to.
