Publisher's Summary

In this moving Amish romance, two broken hearts find hope in each other after a terrible loss.

Unspeakable tragedy strikes the Amish hamlet of Johns Mill when an unstable Englischer opens fire in the Hochstedler’s General Store. In the aftermath, and under the media’s spotlight, Joseph Hochstedler struggles to hold his shattered family together, drawing unexpected comfort from a faithful childhood friend.

Born with a serious heart defect, optimist Naomi Schrock has always longed to live a life of service. She rolls up her sleeves, determined to help Joseph cope with this terrible crisis. But dare she hope that his friendship will finally deepen into love?

As the media’s obsession with the Hochstedler shooting escalates, Joseph and Naomi find themselves caught between tradition and compromise, lingering sorrows and uncertain hopes. And in the end, two people who’ve already lost far too much must find the courage to trust their hearts one last time.

ANNOYING NARRATOR!!!

I can't understand why narrators can't just relax and talk NORMAL when reading a story. Savanah Gilmores slow reading and over emphasis on syllables and hard pronunciations of The last letter of every word is SO ANNOYING and distracts a listener from the story... I've had to rewind the story many times now because I lost focus on the story because I'm too focused on EACH WORD. For instance "She seT the smallesT tea poT on the stove anD headeD to the CabineT to graB a poT..." SERIOUSLY? Who talks like this?! 🙄 🤦🏻‍♀️ 😤

I'm only on chapter 3 so I can't really rate the story itself yet, but I'm already regretting using a credit for this. It's such a bummer when a potentially nice story gets a SUCKY NARRATOR.

Fantastic

First time buying a book written by this author and it won't be the last. From the first chapter you are gripped and enthralled by the characters. Well written and keeps you waiting to find out what happens next. One complaint ... can the author please write more books, preferably series FASTER !!!!
