    This is a GoodReads giveaway win.This book is just beautiful and inspirational and sad. Caleb lives in a small, strict Amish community in Middle Grove.

    I love Susan Wigg's books and this was no exception. Her characters are so realistic I feel like I know them all. Caleb and Reese are from two very different lives- his family is Amish, Reese is a doctor who's parents are high powered physicians who have plans for her life. When a terrible accident occurs while she is working, Caleb and Reese's lives are thrown together. This one kept me turning the pages as fast as I could to see where Wiggs was...

    I really enjoyed this novel. It was just what I needed. I so loved the niece and nephew and my heart just ached for them. I only had to knock it down a point because I just felt that ending was rushed. I guess I just wished it was a couple hundred pages longer. I sometimes think authors just start a wonderful book and they follow where the story takes them, then they look at the page count and go, "Oh shite! I gotta cut this short!!!" That is exa...

Caleb was wanting to stay in the English world, but did as his brother requested.Caleb's nephew has a horrific accident and is taken to a hospital to save his life. Enter love...

    I was sucked into this story from page 1. Reese, a 4th year medical student, and Caleb, an Amish farmer, meet in the ER when Caleb's nephew becomes the victim of a catastrophic accident. They are both keenly aware that any kind of relationship between them is impossible given their lifestyles and commitments. That awareness doesn't stop their budding attraction. The story becomes very emotional as the similarities and differences of their lives a...

    I was so pleased to receive this advance copy. A fascinating, well-written book. (As are all her books). I started reading it on Friday evening and woke up at 3:00 a.m. to finish -- it was that good.The storyline is well-crafted by itself, and it gives a fascinating inside look at the difficulty of certain Amish individuals being forced to reconcile their beliefs against the advantages of embracing some of "English" technology advantages. She cre...
