ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
This is my first series of novels set in the Amish community.
I would love to hear from readers of Christian novels. Please leave me a post at my blogsite.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When a heartless judge confines Abigail to the county jail for her mistakes, her sister Catherine comes to care for her children while Daniel works his fields. Catherine meets Daniel’s reclusive cousin, Isaiah, who’s deaf and thought to be simple minded by his community. She endeavors to teach him to communicate and discovers he possesses unexpected gifts and talents.
While Abigail searches for forgiveness, Catherine changes lives and, in return, finds love, something long elusive in her life. And Isaiah discovers God, who cares nothing about our handicaps or limitations in His sustaining love.
An inspirational tale of overcoming grief, maintaining faith, and finding hope in an ever-changing world.
I really enjoyed this book with it's gripping story line of an Amish midwife thrust into the Englischer system of law while practicing a vocation that is commonplace in the Amish culture. This was such an emotional story since we see the viewpoints of Abby and Nathan in the book, each having suffered a loss, and you couldn't help but grieve as they struggled and rejoice as they work to overcome in those struggles.
I also really enjoyed the chemistry that exists between Catherine and Isaiah...and I certainly hope there is more to their story.
