My Review

I was excited to have a chance to read this first book in the new and exciting program Harlequin’s Love Inspired imprint is launching a trade fiction program.

I have read many books by Jo Ann Brown over the years through Love Inspired and was excited to have a chance to read her latest.

We all do things we regret in our formative years. Things we'd rather never think of again, things bringing us shame that we'd rather never seeing the light of day again.

An unfortunate mishap caused by an ice storm brings her back from the Englisher world back to her roots in the Amish world.

Unfortunately being in Bliss Valley brings her back in contact with Adam Hershberger. Time has past and he is now a widower with a daughter.

Very realistic as it shows the tension between Lauren and Adam that is rekindled as they spend time together. It was charming seeing the relationship between Lauren and his daughter develop.

A strong focusing on forgiveness and redemption, though we know it's the right thing to do it's not always easy to forgive others.

Delightful first book in the series. I look forward to returning and visiting

these characters again.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you.

All opinions expressed are my own.

GoodReads Summary

Caught between who she is…and who she was.

Lauren Nolt hasn’t forgiven the Amish community of Lancaster County for shunning her parents. But returning as a successful Englischer working for large developers is just what she needs to get a promotion and give her parents the life they deserve. Coming face-to-face with her childhood bully, Amish widower Adam Hershberger, is the last thing she wants. Yet when her world’s shaken by a shocking discovery, Adam’s the only one she

can confide in…

Adam’s never forgiven himself for the part he played in Lauren’s past, nor what drove him to do it. But as developers threaten his great-grossdawdi’s farm, she’s the only one who can help. And with his little girl determined to bring him and Lauren together at every turn, keeping his distance is impossible. Now they must learn to trust each other—even as their secret feelings grow stronger. But is love enough to bridge the gap between their very different worlds?
