This book was highly intriguing. I had no idea what would happen next, and I was left guessing at the end of each chapter. I could not wait to see how things would end up!
Lydia Wyse leaves her Amish roots and comes back to bury her mother. Once back her Amish roots call to her and she yearns to know God, and return to her community. As a book editor, her publisher sees the opportunity for a new book...one all about Amish life. So in order for Lydia to stay she must write a book on the Amish.
While in West Kootenai, Montana, where single Amish men stay for six months and leave as grooms, Lydia meets Gideon Hooley. As Lydia and Gideon fight against their childhood they also find themselves with sparks flying between them. However, they both have much to work through. Lydia is just not sure if she is able to choose between her life as a book editor, and Amish life. As both want to forget the hurt of the past and move forward with their futures it had me on the edge of my seat to see if they would end up together or not.
I must say this book was just wonderful. Each character is highly unpredictable, especially Lydia and Gideon. Trying to overcome your past hurts can be extremely difficult but it has to be done in order to move on with the future. Getting back on the right path with God can be the first step in finding what you are looking for and the author did a fantastic job of reminding all of us of just that fact. I highly recommend this book. It was very realistic with emotions, descriptions, and I felt like I was right there with the characters. It definitely pulled me in, and I can't wait to read the other books in the series. This is the second book of the series Seven Brides for Seven Bachlors but I have not read the first one either. I was in no way lost and this does great as a stand alone book. I will definitely go back and read the first one however to get a greater depth of the other characters, and will look forward in more to come after this!
