Follow the heart-wrenching story of Adam Beachy, whose mother walked out on him and his family--and away from the Amish faith. Now he balks at the idea of ever marrying and having a family of his own. But when tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his three nieces and finds himself needing a wife. Despite their differences over her practice of reflexology, Leah Mast seems the best option to fill that role. Can they make it work in a modern-day marriage of convenience?

1 stars By Carolyn, Apr 15 2016
This book promotes reflexology.  Reflexology is not a gift of God.  It originated from pagan religions, and is therefore condemned by the Bible.  I won't be reading or recommending any further books by this author.  Would prefer there was an option for 0 stars.

Disappointing
2 stars By Katie Donovan, Jan 03 2016
It pains me to be so negative, but if this series is representative of Brunstetter's style, then she's definitely not the author for me. The characters in this book are like wooden actors reciting lines.  We are told, told, told repeatedly, rather than shown.  The prose is bland and unsophisticated.  The dialogue is unnatural, often being used to inform the reader, or even more awkwardly, to repeat in English what another character has said using an Amish Dutch word.  There are whole scenes where nothing happens except the character thinking.  And if there was a heart monitor on the tension, it would be virtually flat-lining. There was one spike about three-quarters of the way through the book, but by then I had abandoned all hopes of permanent resuscitation.  If it's romance you're looking for, you're not likely to be impressed either.  For the first three-quarters of the book Leah and Adam repeatedly convince themselves that they will never marry and then all of a sudden they think, "Oh.  I've fallen in love with himher.  I wonder whether heshe will ever feel the same."  There was nothing in their behaviour to suggest this change in their feelings, and the book barely resolved before it finished.  Obviously it is the job of Book 3 to tie up all the loose ends.
