Moriah’s heart will only be safe with a man of his word.
In just a few short months, Moriah Miller’s perfect life unravels. Newly wed and newly pregnant, Moriah is abandoned by her husband, Levi. He’s left her, his family, and their faith without a backward glance. The community, stunned, rushes to the young woman’s aid.
But there is someone who feels more than just sympathy for Moriah. Gabriel Miller–Levi’s twin–longs for an intimate commitment that might someday bind them to one another. Convinced of the impossibility of his dream, Gabriel settles for a mere friendship with the woman he loves.
Moriah bravely goes on with her life, adjusting to her new role in their tight knit Amish community and preparing for the birth of her child. She is unaware that her brief marriage–once idealized as the happiest time in her life–may have been merely a shadow of the kind of love God has created her for. A love that can mend the soul, renew her heart, and give her a future filled with hope…if only she’ll let it.
My Comments: I read this book in a day. The story was good, not necessarily great. In many ways it was predictable, but I found it a sweet romance. The characters were somewhat bland, although there was a spark of life in secondary characters Rachel and Tobias. I also found myself liking John Miller – a man of deep feelings and convictions. As far as my Amish reading has gone, this book looks at another group of Amish that is, the Middlefield settlement in Ohio. There are few differences among the Middlefield Amish and the Lancaster County group, but I find it interesting to study each group.
