Sometimes heartbreaking but mostly heart touching story. This continues the story of the Gingerich Family of Pontotoc, Mississippi. Leah and Hannah, twin sisters had left the Amish years ago but both had come back home. Hannah was finding her Amish roots once again but Leah had been led to a Mennonite faith. Leah is very opinionated and stubborn. She locks horns with newcomer Jaime, Amish, who is caring for his nephew Peter. My heart went out to Peter. Only six, he had lost his whole family in a house fire, including his faithful dog. He regressed to the point that he will not speak, though there is no physical reason he cannot. Jaime brings him to this new community in Mississippi hoping for a fresh start and new memories.
Although arguing every time they are together, Leah and Jaime both find themselves drawn to each other. A romantic relationship between them will never work because neither are willing to give up their religion.
This story really took me in and I felt the hurts and love written in the pages like I was right there among the characters. I'm really hoping there will be a future story about Gracie.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher but was not required to write a review.
