I have enjoyed the Land of Canaan series and looked forward to this newest addition. It's more than your typical Amish story. At first I questioned the idea of an Amish man being willing to leave his faith for an Englisher he isn't in love with. As the story unfolds I found it to be one of the best reads I've had in a long time. I read 4-5 books a week so that says a lot. I did not put the book down until I reached the last page. Beth Wiseman had me in the palm of her hand the entire time.

Book Description

An unplanned pregnancy. An absent father. Can love really endure all things?
Danielle Kent is anything but Amish. But as destiny would have it, she has fallen in love with an Amish man.
Now she’s 18, pregnant, and hopeful that the child’s Amish father—Matthew Lapp—will do the right thing and marry her. She knows Matthew plans to leave his Colorado settlement for a life in the Englisch world. But that plan never included a baby.
When Matthew walks away from her and their unborn child, she has nowhere to turn. Her unlikely friendship with Levi offers some comfort—yet they have so little in common. This wasn’t the plan she had for her life, and she has never felt so alone. She doesn’t want to be pregnant. Doesn’t want to be Amish. Doesn’t want to trust God.
And yet.
God has plans beyond what her mind can imagine . . . loving plans to show a lost young woman that His love never fails but endures forever.
