Ariana's comfortable Old Order Amish world is about to unravel. Will holding tightly to the cords of family keep them together-or simply tear them apart?

Twenty-year-old Ariana Brenneman loves her family and the Old Ways. She has two aspirations: open a café in historic Summer Grove to help support her family's ever-expanding brood and to keep any other Amish from being lured into the Englisch life by Quill Schlabach.

Five years ago Quill, along with her dear friend Frieda, ran off together, and Ariana still carries the wounds of that betrayal. When she unexpectedly encounters him, she soon realizes he has plans to help someone else she loves leave the Amish.

Despite how things look, Quill's goal has always been to protect Ariana from anything that may hurt her, including the reasons he left. After returning to Summer Grove on another matter, he unearths secrets about Ariana and her family that she is unaware of. His love and loyalty to her beckons him to try to win her trust and help her find a way to buy the café-because when she learns the truth that connects her and a stranger named Skylar Nash, Quill knows it may upend her life forever.

Can't wait for the next installment
5 stars By Margot, Jul 31 2018
Some writers write a series in which each part could stand alone. The main characters of part two were minor characters in part one, or each book focuses on totally different characters but they are all in the same town, or whatever, but each book is more or less complete in itself. This is not the case for Cindy Woodsmall's Amish of Summer Grove series. I've just finished part 1: Ties that Bind, and the story is far from complete. It is a complex and very emotional story, with lots of intertwined characters, a great deal of mystery, and a deeply inspirational message. There's a lot more in there than some of the other rather slow moving Amish stories I've read. I feel so connected to Ariana and Quill, the main characters, and am pleased I waited until all the books were printed before I started, so that I can move straight on with part 2. Please read them in order, as they are not stand-alones.
