Also Available In
Can These Two Friends from Opposite Worlds Find Love?

They've been best friends for years, but as high school ends, Zane Beck can't help but look at his Amish neighbor, Lila Lehman, with different eyes. Her controlling father sees only one future for Lila, though, and arranges for her to be courted by an upstanding young Amish man. When Zane sees the two together, his plans for the future crumble, and he impulsively enlists in the Army, following in his father's footsteps.

However, the passing of years and the distance between them isn't enough to halt their now hidden feelings for each other. If being together used to be difficult, it's now impossible, especially with the Amish opposed to war. Zane's service takes a dramatic turn when he's sent to Afghanistan. Being on the front line and the reality of taking a life has him questioning whether he can continue to serve or not. But all choices have consequences--both his and hers. With Lila preparing to marry another, will these one-time sweethearts ever find the life together that they both still long for?

Didn't come to life for me
3 stars By Katie Donovan, Feb 05 2016
Despite my hopes, I ended up feeling disappointed by this novel.  We are shown very little evidence of the characters' attachment to one another other than in their thoughts. They do not spend very much time together on the page, and what time they do spend together is strained for the majority of the book. There was even less romantic interaction - barely any at all. The result is that we've been told the way they feel but then shown nothing to back that up, which made the book a little flat for me.  There was also quite a change in Lila's father's attitude as the story progressed, attributed to another character's influence on him.  This transformation will be more obvious to those who have read the first novel in the series, but I found it a little difficult to believe since we didn't actually see how it happened.  We were simply supposed to accept that spending time with another person has brought it about. The other thing that affected my reading experience was the feeling that the writing didn't always flow smoothly. Sometimes it was because there were explanations or extra details interrupting the flow of the scene, sometimes I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was. Whatever the reason, I just didn't feel as though the writing brought this story to life. For me, it remained a story on a page.
