About the Book:
A suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker
After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she’s getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky…if only she wasn’t too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone-even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she’ll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.
For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called “The Recluse” confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he’s misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God’s gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there’s always more to someone than meets the eye.
Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County. For more on this book and author check out this Page
My Personal Review and Thoughts:
Okay, this book was amazing! I have been a fan of Gray’s writings for many years, so I always jump a the chance to read anything of hers that come out. I am a huge fan of Amish fiction and this latest book from Gray is one of the best in that genre I have read this year. I was so captivating that I didn’t want to put it down. The characters are very endearing and relatable, making it impossible not to connect with them instantly. I thought the storyline was well thought out and very interesting.
A beautiful mix of the Amish faith and culture mixed with just the right amount of suspense. Shelley Shepard Gray did a fantastic job of writing a compelling plot around some real and frightening issues. When I started the book on our lunch break between lessons, instantly I was in trouble. It was a real struggle not to just cancel the rest of our lessons and read instead. Sadly, I did end up reading more later that night and finishing the book before bed. Yes, it is that good! For me, the biggest critique for this novel is that it wasn’t long enough, ha! I hated to see this it end because I know there are still a few months until book 2 comes out. Highly, highly recommend!
