Publisher's Summary

Hannah is distraught when her parents are murdered - but what makes it worse is that she should have been at home with them...not meeting her forbidden love, Reece. Unable to face the community and her guilt, she runs away and marries him.

But Reece isn't the man she thought he was. He controls her completely, and when she gets pregnant - against his wishes - he pushes her down the stairs as she approaches her due date. When she wakes in the hospital and he tells her the baby died, she knows she's had enough. She runs again.

Years later, Hannah has become an expert on Amish quilts, and her visibility allows Reece to track her down. He begs her to come back, saying he's changed - and sends her a picture of their daughter.

This couldn't be real, could it? Hannah is certain this is just another way he's trying to manipulate her, but the chance, no matter how slight, of seeing her daughter won't leave her mind. When another member of her old community is found murdered - by the same poison that killed her parents - old fears surface. Was Reece the one who killed her parents in order to get her away? And is he killing again to get her back?

Note: This novel was originally published as Anathema.

Another Great One!

Love your books weather I read them or listen to them always a great story!! And this one is now my favorite loved it!
Just one note to the narrator you do such a great job telling the story! Great with all the characters except the lead female. I really wish u wouldn’t make them sound so winey. Other than that great job!

Cycles from slow to fast then slow to fast

I learned a great deal about the Amish, and was interested to see how many of the sects have evolved to embrace some of modern items. Ms. Conor is the only fictional book that has truthfully explained the peace sign is actually anti-Christian (Nero’s cross) because St. Peter was crucified upside down.

As you can see there is a great deal of information on the subject and also historical information. Normally, I can’t get enough of this information—but it was a bit much.

I like how the main theme is based on forgiveness: and how forgiving someone sets us free.

I don’t know if I’ll listen to this book again, so I may turn it back in.

I thought Devon O’Day did a super narrative job!

A bit far fetched

Love then bought process of the theme of the book, but I felt a bit out there for the characters to actually do what author wrote.

Just ok....

ok storyline, but not interesting enough to listen to more than once. It wasn't very suspenseful . I think the narrator had a cold.
