It's 1886 and Jesse Montgomery is beginning to feel restless. Though he's grateful to his friends Colin and Emma for helping him get on his feet again after a few bad choices and some hard living, surely the Lord doesn't want him to stay in Apple Grove forever. Doesn't the Almighty have plans for this reformed rowdy cowboy to build a life of his own?
When an unscrupulous cattle baron tries to steal Amish land, Jesse intervenes and is wounded. Lovely Katie Miller, the young healer in the district, attends to him while trying to guard her heart - this sweet Amish widow cannot risk falling in love with an English cowboy, charming though he may be. And yet, she believes God has a life for her too that is more than what she can presently see. Could there be a future with Jesse that only He could bring about?

- Forgiveness by Jane on 6/6/2013
Another good book by dual authors.
I could so see ranchers doing Amish the way Mr. Littlefield did Jonas. Because the Amish are peaceful, the English treat them with no respect. We are all people.
But the forgiveness of Mr. Littlefield y Jonas is the big picture. A lesson for us all. I've really never thought about Amish being around in 1800s.
Having read the story of Jesse before on cattle drives with Luke, it was refreshing to read of his struggles with whiskey and faith.
God's plans for Jesse, Jonas, Amos and Katie were revealed.
My 12 year old granddaughter was reading the title yesterday and asking questions about the story.
Jesse's recovery from a bullet wound and a bishop who was so hard and ungracious to people were interesting.
A true story of forgiveness and the struggle with doing it.
- A Peaceful Society by Maureen on 4/25/2013
The year is 1886 and Jesse Montgomery, has finally kicked the demon whiskey! With the help of his friends Colin and Emma, he has waged his battle and won.
When someone tries to steal Jonas and Mammi Switzer's farm, he goes out to help, only to be shot in the back. Young Widow Katie Miller, comes and helps the Doctor, and stays to help the young cowboy. Sparks tend to fly between them, but Katie is Amish.
Loved spending more time in this Apple Grove Amish Community. Good to see and hear from old friends. Will this be the end of the Settlement, they will not fight to save what is theirs. This peaceful society, will turn the other cheek. Will Jesse be able to help them? Will the Bishop Miller let them accept the help of the English Jesse?
Loved the twists and turns of this story. Through out it all, we see a strong love to follow the Lord's ways.
Don't miss the final story in this trilogy, you can read this one alone, but don't deprive yourself of two other great books!
I received this book through First Wild Card Book Tours, and was not required to give positive review.
