Will love be enough to fix what tragedy threatens?
Gregarious Rosie Lehma, who's always the life of the Amith youth singings, is determined to marry the bishop's son, Reuben Byler -- until the handsome Army buddy of her future brother-in-law shows up in Lancaster County. In comparison to Trevor, Reuben seems downright boring. Trevor shares Rose's sense of fun and adventure, and her easygoing disposition.
When her sister Lila is injured in a devastating accident, Rose finds herself with more freedom than she's ever experienced in her life. Only Reuben seems to notice, but he never voices his concerns. Part of her relishes the freedom she's found with Trevor, but the other part wishes Reuben would finally express his love and 'fight' for her. Have her choices ruined her best chance at love, or is there another path to happiness she just hasn't seen yet?
Book Three in the Neighbors of Lancaster County series continues with Lila and Zach's story (Amish Sweethearts) as well as focusing on Lila's sister, Rosie. While Rosie's part of the story can be enjoyed as a standalone, a reader will need to be familiar with the intricacies of all that has happened between the Lehman and the Beck families to fully appreciate Zane and Lila's portion of this book. So I'd recommend reading them in order. Plus, there's a whole contingency of secondary characters that might be hard to keep track of without the benefit of having read Amish Promises and Amish Sweethearts.
And, mercy, but the author doesn't hold back when it comes to putting her characters through the wringer! She throws them all into the refiner's fire and I squirmed and fumed and sighed as Lila and Zane and Rosie and Reuben faced untold tragedy and loss. It shattered my sensitive reader's heart time and time again. But then the author deftly put the pieces back together again as she transformed tragedy into a story of deep love and abiding grace.
