Helping prepare for her sister Emma’s wedding, Sarah is outside cutting celery in the garden when a plane flies low to the ground. As Sarah looks up she sees an orange object floating toward a close by hill. Investing she discovers a man has parachuted and landed in a heap claiming to have broken his leg. He also adamantly claims he is in danger and his life is at stake. He needs Sarah to hide him and not tell anyone, including her family. And thus the deceptions begin!
Sarah, being Amish, is pretty naive to the world’s ways. It was kind of refreshing but also led her into more and more lies she had to tell and promises she had to keep. It wore on her soul and kept her tied in knots. I found myself feeling sympathetic to her situation. Above all she kept feeling like she needed to ask for forgiveness both to God and to those she had deceived.
Jakob was a childhood friend that had courted Sarah’s older sister and they had broken up. Sarah had been in love with him for years but felt it a lost cause because of their history. Trying to keep Herman, the parachutist, and his assistant hidden was also getting harder and harder. They had hidden secrets too yet to be revealed. How will this affect their Amish community and the way Sarah is perceived? And will their secrets bring danger to the Esh household? This was a quick read for me because of how I was pulled into the story and how I was searching for answers along with Sarah. This is an absolute can’t miss for readers but especially for Amish fans!
