About the book:

Family secrets could get in the way of a second chance at love

After her husband dies, Rose longs to be near her family—especially her twin sister, Lillian—so she packs up her young son and leaves their life in Ohio to move back to Paradise, Pennsylvania.

Luke Miller is ready to settle down in Paradise. He soon forms a partnership with Rose to help farm her land. He finds that he’s enjoying the company of the quiet, modest widow and she may be just the woman he’s been waiting for. But is Rose hiding a secret beneath her reserved exterior—one that could keep her from having a future with Luke?

And Rose isn’t the only one concealing something. Luke has a secret of his own, and it could threaten their partnership—and their chance at love.

My thoughts:

What a wonderful and heartwarming story Ms. Cameron has penned!   From beginning to end, I was fully caught up in the story of Rose and  her adorable little boy, Daniel.  Rose is returning to her family home in Paradise as a widow to be with her family, especially her twin sister, Lillian.

I loved Rose and mourned the loss of her husband, but she had an inner strength that I greatly admired and she is the epitome of  a good mother.  The love and care she gave Daniel was so sweet.

I was extremely fond of Luke and his relationship with Daniel was natural and believable.  The caution that Rose took with her son , her farm and most of all with her heart was refreshing as she wasn’t in a hurry to dive into a relationship with Luke or any other man in the community.

This is a tender story with selfless love and a secret that I kept trying to figure out but was a bit surprised when it was revealed.  Although this is the second book in the series, it was fine to read as a stand-alone to me.  I will be reading the first book as soon as I can and I’m curious to see what’s next in this series.

I recommend this book to readers of all ages that enjoy both Amish and Christian fiction
