ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
This is my first series of novels set in the Amish community.
I would love to hear from readers of Christian novels. Please leave me a post at my blogsite.
ABOUT THE BOOK
When a heartless judge confines Abigail to the county jail for her mistakes, her sister Catherine comes to care for her children while Daniel works his fields. Catherine meets Daniel’s reclusive cousin, Isaiah, who’s deaf and thought to be simple minded by his community. She endeavors to teach him to communicate and discovers he possesses unexpected gifts and talents.
While Abigail searches for forgiveness, Catherine changes lives and, in return, finds love, something long elusive in her life. And Isaiah discovers God, who cares nothing about our handicaps or limitations in His sustaining love.
An inspirational tale of overcoming grief, maintaining faith, and finding hope in an ever-changing world.

Watch the book trailer:
This is a book that you cannot take lightly, the circumstances are so very sad yet the author finds a way to add subtle humor which makes the story take on a bittersweet note. Despite Abby's troubles I found myself laughing repeatedly over a few of the Amish men in this story, their bluntness and funny thoughts just make you chuckle. In this book you see the great divide between the Amish and the English and how our different ways of thinking sometimes collide in a way that is good for no one.
I have really enjoyed this book, it is a deeper read than some of the Amish stories I have read and it's one I'll most likely read again.
