Diane Burke weaves a story filled with suspense and danger, but also one of renewed faith and forgiveness. Excellent read!
until you finish it! This one was the same. I love the way she holds your interest and the way she
puts her faith in all of her books. Another great one from Diane Burke! So glad I picked up her
The Amish community and their faith and the culture are compelling and interesting. The simple way of life and the absolute faith in God and His guidance are rather impressive and alluring. I enjoyed the author's way to tell the story in such fluent, flowing way that captured my mind completely, dismissing everything else around me.
Elizabeth Lapp makes an intriguing heroine with her sudden return to the community, the mysterious secrets she is holding, and the way she departed her family, friends, and the Amish way seven years ago. She is kind, sweet lady, with heart of gold. Yet she has a stubborn streak, she is independent, she has a wide worldview after her years in the English world, and she's a very private person making it hard to open up about her deepest fears and doubts in her heart.
Thomas has had his heart broken twice, the first time when Elisabeth left the community without explanation, and the second time when his young wife died giving birth to their daughter. He is a devoted father, a good son, kind and helpful neighbor. His faith in God is unwavering, his ability to see the bigger picture and to find forgiveness in his heart are admirable.
While protecting Elisabeth and her mother from the constant attacks, Thomas is tangling with the old feelings awakening towards Elisabeth. The suspense is intense and the assaults escalating, turning into dangerous and deadly. The secrets from the past have come to hunt the present and only complete honesty will bring forward the clues needed to catch the culprit.
The grace, compassion, and mercy the characters display is commendable. The support of the community, the help, loyalty, and protection they provide to each other is praiseworthy. From the broken hearts and hopes for the future, they find the ability to open up, share their inner fears and doubts and forgive, forget, and move on to a brighter future.
While the mystery and mayhem kept the mind entertained and the story intense, the growing love and dispensation towards each other, the spiritual growth of the characters, gave something to reflect on and appreciate.
Compelling and enthralling romantic suspense with strong elements of faith and forgiveness
~ Four Spoons
The Amish Witness follows Elizabeth Lapp, who jumped the fence years ago. When she witnesses the murder of her dear friend, Hannah, she heads back to her Amish community for refuge…but she hasn’t run far enough.
Thomas King is a widowed Amish farmer with two small children. He is shocked to find a woman being attacked in a neighbor’s barn….only to see that the woman is none other than Elizabeth Lapp, the girl that left him for the Englisch world so many years ago. Seeing as there is a killer on the loose, Thomas pledges to protect Elizabeth – even if he can’t forgive her.
What happened at the murder scene? Why did someone decide that Hannah should be killed? Why did Elizabeth really leave her Amish community behind? Can Thomas ever truly forgive Elizabeth? Read and find out!
I was given The Amish Witness in exchange for my honest review. I was not disappointed. Burke does an exceptional job of capturing the reader with the first few pages. You then have no choice: You must read it until the end! Part of the storyline had me thinking – is this realistic? And yet, when a murder occurs is there really ever any sanity to it? Definitely pick this one up. You’ll fly through the pages in no time!
Elizabeth Lapp was brought up Amish. When her best friend had to leave the community Elizabeth went with her. She just witnessed the murder of her friend and this time she runs home but the killer follows her. He attacks her in the barn and she is rescued by a neighbor. Thomas was the love of her life before she left the community. A man who is unable to forgive her.
Widower Thomas King helps the Lapp widow (Elizabeth's mamm) after her husband's death. He is shocked to find out that Elizabeth has returned home, he helps her from a man trying to kill her, and even though she betrayed him he vows to protect her. Since he has two small children he can't risk his heart to his first love but he will keep her alive.
A journey of reunited hearts that beat just for each other. A killer trying to destroy them and find the evidence Hannah left behind. God has a plan for these two; a plan for a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too, a good plan and not for evil.
