A mysterious outsider casts a long shadow on Ohio’s Amish country. Policewoman Rachel Troyer has always looked after her three elderly Amish aunts, proprietors of a farmhouse inn near Sugarcreek, Ohio. The idyllic town is popular with tourists, who come to sample its famous Amish goods. But one thing is clear to Rachel – Joe Matthews is no tourist. When the bearded stranger lands on her aunts’ doorstep, begging shelter for himself and his young son, Rachel is suspicious.
Will she be able to uncover Joe’s secrets despite her aunts’ – and her own – growing affection for him?

My take on this book:
I was excited to read a book that takes place in the Ohio Amish country of Sugarcreek. I have taken several trips to the area and this book easily transported me back to familiar territory. It was easy to see that Ms. Miller did her research of not only the area but the Old Order Amish lifestyle as well. She provides a realistic story with characters that seem real, each have their share of problems but it is how they work thru those problems and the connections that they have with each other that truly made this a wonderful story. While there is romance there is also a bit of mystery, drama, humor blended together with the message of forgiveness. Fans of Amish fiction will love this book, but I think anyone who enjoys romance will find this to their liking.
