This book was an utter let down. Beverly Lewis is by far one of my very favorite authors, but this novel was a sensational flop for me! I was stunned and even angered by the fact that it just didn't live up to her exceptional quality. I will continue reading her novels, but I may think twice before picking up another one in which she co-authored with David. ( )

Melissa is recently married to her wonderful husband Ryan. Suddenly after a brief encounter with someone from her secretive past she leaves her husband and hides herself in an Amish settlement. Her husband's world is turned upside down with his wife missing. It sounds pretty predictable but for me it wasn't. There where some twists thrown in there. It starts off exciting and pretty much stays thrilling.

Another Amish fiction. Yeah I am on a Amish kick. Maybe I should start a challenge? Beverly Lewis is probably best know for her Amish series The Heritage of Lancaster County. Unlike her fellow Christian author Wanda E. Brunstetter she doesn't romanticize the Amish she adds mystery and psychological thrills. She also wrote this with her husband David. I don't if that is what made this one different for me because I have read other books by her and sometimes they fizzle out.

So what can say if I wanted you read this book? I like this book because lately I am looking for religion and these books have that. Just a little but it added in a smart way, in a real way. Where when you read the different situations the characters are going through you understand because you can add them into your own life. I like that. ( )

Melissa and Ryan had a beautiful life together, until one day Melissa sees someone she thought she had escaped. She is on the run again, alone and afraid. Then she finds Lela, who has been led of the Lord to take in a "boarder" at her home and the story from there takes you back in time and then to the present time and keeps you guessing how this will all work out for good.
