Charlotte has made a home for herself in Amish Country with Daniel. But unforeseen events rock their fragile world and may move them even further away from the life they long for.
Charlotte, an Englisher, is living in Amish Country, and she has formed strong and lasting bonds with the people in her new community. She has even fallen in love with an Amish man. But just when she is considering a permanent conversion to the Amish way of life, her world crashes around her. An unexpected death and a mysterious visitor unsettle Charlotte, and she begins to question her faith and her choices.
Daniel loves Charlotte and wants to share his life with her, even it if means leaving the only world he’s ever known. But as he walks alongside of her through her struggles, his own world is turned upside down when a loved one receives a grim medical diagnosis and a prodigal relative returns home. Will Charlotte and Daniel’s relationship succumb to the many pressures around them, or will their faith and the strong community around them allow them to weather the storms of their own lives in order to build a life together?
In the delightful final installment of Wiseman's Amish Secrets series (after Love Bears All Things), heroine Charlotte must examine her commitment to her boyfriend, Daniel, as well as her desire to serve God. The story opens with the funeral of Charlotte's estranged mother, and readers who are new to the series may have trouble following all the dynamics at play; even though Daniel is at Charlotte's side, some of her Amish friends are missing from the event, among them Lena and Amos, her surrogate parents. It becomes evident that Charlotte, an "English" (non-Amish) transplant, is on shaky ground within the Amish community, and her troubles are compounded by the unexpected arrival of her long-lost younger sister, Andrea, with a baby (and suspect motives) in tow. Outside of Charlotte's own spiritual struggles, many characters from earlier books face their own dilemmas, which Wiseman uses to slow the pace and examine sticky religious, moral, and ethical issues. Wiseman also ruminates at length on Charlotte's misery and uncertainty. The conclusion will surprise and please readers who have been rooting for Charlotte to finally find happiness.
