Not your typical Amish Romance!
Naomi's husband Micah has joined the army as a medic, and is sent away to Afghanistan. While he is away tragedy strikes killing Naomi's father, mother, and sister, leaving her brother Luke with a severe head injury. Rebecca, Naomi's friend and Micah's sister steps in to help care for Luke and help Naomi cope with everything going on around her.
When Micah comes home things become even more difficult, because of his shunning and though they allow him to stay and work with them, he is not allowed to speak or eat with them, not even with his own wife!
Can their broken relationship be healed?
At first I wasn't sure if I was going to love this book, because it just sounded so incredibly sad, and at first it is. But hopes shines through in a powerful way as hearts, and relationships begin to heal.
The characters were all well written with meaningful dialogue between them, as well as many memorable members of the community. I really liked Micah and how he truly believed in what he did, and stood strong knowing that God had called him to be in Afghanistan for a reason.
This is a terrific read in so many ways and it shows God's providence and sovereignty over everything, and the power of prayer. This was a very engaging read that kept me reading, with the equally riveting subplots that entwined themselves into the story. Overall, another fantastic read from Murray Pura!
