This reader was charmed by this Amish romance set in Charm, Ohio.

From the first page, I was immersed in the lives of the characters. This isn't just another Amish light read.

Following a tragedy at the lumber mill, Lukas and Darla immediately find themselves as the leaders within their own families. We are introduced to other characters as well and observe how they are reacting to these changes.

The romance between Lukas and Darla is based upon their long friendship and mutual respect along with some great chemistry. I loved the gentle evolution of the realization of their feelings. Peaceful sigh-worthy!

The author lists an Amish proverb before the first chapter. "Reach up as far as you can. God will reach the rest of the way." This is so true and such a beautiful expression. Also listed is a verse from the Bible regarding forgiveness (Matthew 6:14). Another central theme of this novel is the acceptance of support from others.

Due to the domestic abuse issue in the novel, I would not recommend this book to teenagers.

Don't miss the cute illustrated map in the front of the book or the recipe for White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies in the back!
