LOVE FINDS YOU IN PARADISE PENNSYLVANIA
For as long as anyone can remember, tourists have flocked to the quainttown of Paradise, Pennsylvania, where Amish buggies are as common as shops sellinghandcrafted goods. But to attorney Julia Spencer this town is anything but a paradise. Raised in foster homes, Julia has succeeded in life only through steely determination and independence. The close-knit Amish people are a mystery to her, but local veterinarian Simon Thomas knows them well and is fiercely protective of their simple ways, which are increasingly threatened by the outside world. When Julia agrees to defend a local teenager charged in a case involving an Amish boy, sheand Simon find themselves on opposite sides of an intense and emotional legal battle. Just when it seems they will never understand one another, God has something to teach them both about the power of forgiveness…and the joys to be found in Paradise.
IT ISN'T OFTEN THAT I FIND A NOVEL THAT COMPLETELY BLINDSIDES ME BUT THIS ONE DID. I WAS NOT PREPARED FOR A PLOT TWIST THAT COMPLETELY STUNNED ME! IT TURNED THIS LIGHT-HEARTED ROMANCE INTO SOMETHING MUCH MORE SERIOUS. I CAN'T SAY ANYTHING MORE WITHOUT GIVING IT AWAY, BUT HAVE A BOX OF TISSUES HANDY WHEN YOU READ LOVE FINDS YOU IN PARADISE PENNYSLVANIA.
