When two young Amish men find love, will they risk losing everything?
In a world where every detail of life—down to the width of a hat brim—is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he'll have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else—something he can't name.
Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can't put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.
Now that they've found each other, are they willing to lose it all?
This gay romance from Keira Andrews is the first book in a series of forbidden Amish love. It contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, Jane Austen levels of pining, family drama, and of course a happy ending.

THE BEST EVER!!!
Hands down the best I have ever read! I have always dreamed this type of book would exist. I am fascinated by the Amish community and always wondered what would happen if someone was LGBTQ+ in that community. Doesn’t matter to me that it is a fictional story, I am so happy and obsessed with this book and the books after it! I laughed, gasped, awed, and enjoyed every bit of this book. Please read, this definitely needs so much more attention! Bless Keira Andrews for creating this story and the wonderful characters.
The allure of the forbidden
Portrays well the struggle of religion versus desire.
