I cannot say enough that anyone who has fallen in love against all odds , or who wants to fall in love should run out and get this book ! I received it only a week ago and I have already finished reading it cover to cover . Once I started to read it I could not put it down.
Although it is a story of true love it is also a story of love , forgiveness and loyalty to family. Sylvia is a woman different from other Amish women from when she is a little girl. She enjoys working hard , on her family's farm. After an incident that she had little control of stopping she feels she must run away to protect the feelings of her family. When she leaves she is able to find another family farm where she is treated like a daughter. All is well until the son of the owners comes back after an absence to right that he feels he did wrong. This leaves Sylvia in a precarious situation. What will she do and where will she go ? Although she wasn't looking for love and neither was the son after rubbing each other the wrong way they begin to feel an attraction to each other.
But they both realize thy must have the forgiveness and understanding from both of their familes before they can let their true feelings show.
Although a reader of love stories may be put off by the cover showing an Amish woman on the cover I do not feel that it was your typical Amish love story.
Icannot say enough about this book.
