- Amazing Read by Maureen on 4/9/2013
An amazing book, that I didn't want to end. The first book in this series was An Uncommon Grace, this story is a continuation. That being said, you can read this as a stand alone, but Serena B. Miller is such an awesome author, you don't want to miss it.
We are now following Claire Shetler, whom we met previously, when her husband was brutally murdered, and Grace, now Levi's wife, saved her life. Grace also saved two year old Daniel.
Joining Claire's family also are her two nieces, Mandy and Amy. That makes for a busy life for any woman. Claire is also a dedicated Midwife, and is trying to support her family by doing that.
Returning after twenty seven years is Tom Miller, he has been badly injured in Afghanistan. He is a decorated Marine Helicopter pilot. He had a different name when he lived in this Ohio Amish Community, and he doesn't know how he will be received.
We find a great deal of compassion on all sides, and some very surprising happenings. There is a bit of Romance, and young ones getting into trouble, also Satan taking advantage of a faithful man's weakness...not unusual. Will this community be able to give forgiveness?
Your in for a really great read, and you won't be able to put this one down!
I received this book from Howard Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
