She always knew she was adopted, why then did Lydia later think it was a curse first. Running from Amish ways, and love of parents, didn't change anything about her birth. Coming home, seeing the grief of her father, and the memories of him, sitting by her bed as she slept. Her dad giving her a treasure box of her mother, will that change things. Meeting Gideon, whose past of when he was 4 haunt him, wanting answers, yet hasn't asked. Her editor wanted an Amish book, if she did it would be "coming home" jotting down memories of time past, in a notebook. Could Gideon and Lydia find love and healing, and a life here. A tender love story of the emotions of the young finding peace, and their way in life.Readers will love this story and the series.
After moving away from her Amish community to escape the pain of her birth Lydia is drawn back after her mother passes and she wants to be there for her father, but she soon realizes she misses her community and wonders if they will except her back, she also meets the handsome Amish Bachelor Gideon Holley, but will her painful past keep her from committing to a future as an Amish Bride?
Lydia is given a gift from her father that her mother keep for many years, The Promise Box! Lydia is surprised to find treasured gifts to her that help heal her broken heart but will it be enough, can she move forward? This is a wonderful book and it’s packed full of wonderful scripture. I highly recommend it and look forward to book three in the series The Kissing Bridge.
When I was a struggling single parent of two boys, my boys and I had something we called MOMMA PROMISE. That meant that I would NEVER make them a promise I wouldn't keep. When we talked about vacations or other things to do as a family, they would ask for a MOMMA PROMISE. Just yesterday my 35 yr old son and I were talking--he needed to borrow some money for 2-3 days. He said I'll get it back to u in 2-3 days--MOMMA PROMISE. you can depend on God's promises even more.
