About the book:
Despite growing pains in her 1846 Amish community in Indiana, Naomi Schrock has settled into a comfortable life in her parents’ home with her adopted son, Davey. Surrounded by family and friends, she tries not to think about the fact that she’s not at the top of any man’s list of potential wives. Yet when Cap Stoltzfus moves into the area and befriends Davey, Naomi finds herself caught between the plans she has made for her future and the tantalizing thought that Cap might be part of a life she never dared to hope for.
When a couple shows up claiming to be Davey’s true family, Naomi and Cap must unite to make the decision that will determine the boy’s future as well as their own. How can she relinquish him to these unknown relatives? And can God somehow bring wholeness to her heart?
My review (5-stars)
I love reconnecting with favorite characters and communities, so I was happy to find out how Naomi, her family and friends have been faring in their new community. Naomi has been one of my favorite characters in this series. She has matured and taken to motherhood in such a wonderful way. Her love for her adopted son Davey, was written quite beautifully and her concerns for his safety and well-being were genuine.
It was impossible not to like newcomer, Cap, especially since he was so kind to Davey. His character was a perfect addition and soon became one of my favorites.
I’ve loved watching the community the characters built and how they’ve flourished. Ms. Drexler has penned a wonderful series that I think will appeal to readers of Amish and historical fiction.
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the complimentary copy.
