About the Book:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray begins a new series—The Amish of Hart County—with this suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker.
After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she’s getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky…if only she wasn’t too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone—even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she’ll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.
For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called “The Recluse” confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he’s misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God’s gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there’s always more to someone than meets the eye.
Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County.
I really enjoyed this new series by author Shelley Shepard Gray! I have read other Amish fiction books by her and I really enjoyed the suspense and drama in this story.
The plot kept my interest and I liked reading the family struggles from all the different character’s point of views. I could totally relate to the mothers frustration with her children, as well as Hannahs frustration with being stalked and constant fears.
I didn’t guess how the ending of the book would be, so I’m glad it wasn’t predictable. There will be a second book coming out in July called “His Guilt”- I can’t wait to read it!
