Each Daughters of the Promise novel focuses on one woman's journey into an Amish Community where she discovers new meaning to the words faith, hope, and love. When Carley Marek takes a hiatus from her job, she leaves Texas and visits her friend Lillian in Amish country, Pennsylvania. Carley isn't there long when she meets Lillian's charming-but shunned-brother-in-law, Dr. Noah Stoltzfus.' When Lillian's stepson is stricken with a life-threatening disease, Noah is forbidden'to intervene, but he resolves to do whatever it takes to save the boy's life. Carley finds herself caught in the middle of her'feelings for Noah and her loyalty to'Lillian. And to further complicate matters, everyone around her is talking about God--a God she doesn't know and who appears to be punishing her for her past mistakes. When her hiatus is up, Carley must make a life-changing decision: stay and face the path that is set before her, or flee and leave the only love she's ever known.

Carley meets an interesting doctor who is related to Lillian's husband and yet is shunned by the community. The characters of each book series pop up in this book..It is helpful to have read the first four books, although I didn't have that opportunity to read them in order, I still did appreciate what this book had to provide: conflicts, resolution and peace.
I believe that the Lord opens the path for us to read inspiring stories about different cultures that helps us with our walk with the LORD!
Of course as with each book...it was difficult to put it down...I would read while eating breakfast, lunch and at bedtime!! If you enjoy reading Amish stories, then I know you will enjoy reading this book!
Luckily for me although this is the second book in the series it can be read as a standalone. I have books 2-6 of the series..somehow missed getting the first. Don't ask me how, but that will have to definitely be rectified if I want to read Lillian's story :)!!
I fall for Noah character from the first moment the author introduce him. He never lost faith in God and because of that conviction he will overcome the hurt and deal with his family.
I felt like I was in Paradise, not in my bedroom reading the book. I was left wanted more when the book ended!!!
The family characters are wonderful role models. I like the interaction between families in the Amish community .
