Publisher's Summary

The tranquil little town of Willow Ridge is facing a startling challenge. Wealthy Nora Glick Landwehr is determined to make it her home again - and put her past to rest. Cast out by her own family, Nora can't reconcile with old Amish ways or her strict father. But she'll do anything to help her community embrace the future and to and make amends to the daughter she had to give up. So she certainly has no time for her reckless new neighbor, Luke Hooley. They disagree about almost everything. And how can she trust him if he always seems to believe the worst about her? Somehow, though, his unexpected support and passionate heart are helping her find her own way in faith. And Nora will discover that even in the face of insidious lies and unyielding judgment, God creates unexpected chances for forgiveness - and love.

Good Story Yeah !

Liked this for the most part

I have listened to all 6 books in this series which indicates that I like this author. However, Luke was one of the main characters in this book and in past books his character was more on the periphery. I really dislike this character. He is a perfect example of a womanizer and every woman who is attracted to a womanizer thinks she can change their ways. The story line seems to support this falsehood. Luke was portrayed as if he had changed at the end. I felt the character was only putting his best foot forward to win the object of his desire. I wish the storyline had shown a true change in this character.

love these stories

I absolutely love these characters and setting.
However, the words, " he murmured," and "she murmured" are overly used.

Missed opportunity

Nora’s story of traumatic abuse by a bishop when she was young provides the backdrop for her return to this seemingly picturesque Amish town. However, I feel like Hubbard missed an opportunity to speak into the horror left in situations like this. It seemed like the bishop’s sexual assault of her at 16, his use of his powerful position to tie her silence to her salvation, & her own father’s rejection of her at this tender age, was all just glossed over. The issue of respect for women and girls—even in a male dominated faith like the Amish—should have been developed into this story of Nora’s coming home. Although her father eventually came around, this could have been a teaching point within the story, as well as Nora’s healing path from this trauma.
