Caught between who she is…and who she was.

Lauren Nolt hasn’t forgiven the Amish community of Lancaster County for shunning her parents. But returning as a successful Englischer working for large developers is just what she needs to get a promotion and give her parents the life they deserve. Coming face-to-face with her childhood bully, Amish widower Adam Hershberger, is the last thing she wants. Yet when her world’s shaken by a shocking discovery, Adam’s the only one she can confide in…

Adam’s never forgiven himself for the part he played in Lauren’s past, nor what drove him to do it. But as developers threaten his great-grossdawdi’s farm, she’s the only one who can help. And with his little girl determined to bring him and Lauren together at every turn, keeping his distance is impossible. Now they must learn to trust each other—even as their secret feelings grow stronger. But is love enough to bridge the gap between their very different worlds?

This was an interesting story of forgiveness and redemption. Despite the conflict that existed between the characters, it wasn’t too difficult to root for them and hope that all would work out for them in  the end. I liked the cast of characters and their individual quirks. I also liked that it wasn’t all about the romance. I have to admit that I struggled with some of the realism. I’m not sure I could share too much about this without sharing spoilers, but it’s not necessarily that things came too easy, but rather certain events felt unnatural to how they would have unfolded realistically. So there were some likes and dislikes in this one but overall it was an interesting read.
