Summary

As the sole survivor of a buggy accident that left her orphaned at age four, Linda Zook was reluctantly raised by her uncle Reuben. She longs to be worthy of someone, but the lasting trauma of her injuries and embittered upbringing have destroyed her self-worth. When Hannah Peterson asks her to work at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast, she's finally able to realize some confidence.

Aaron Ebersol left the Amish community 17 years ago when he could no longer bear the restrictions or the constant tension with his father. Despite years of unanswered letters to his parents and the roots he's put down in Missouri, Aaron rushes back to the Amish community of Paradise, Pennsylvania, after receiving word of his mother's stroke. Hesitant to get too close to the family he was once a part of, he decides to stay at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast. Talking with Linda allows him to explore his feelings about his family and his position in the Amish community.

As Linda and Aaron open up to each other, their feelings for one another turn into more than friendship, and Aaron must make a decision about his future as an Amish man.

Can Linda and Aaron forgive the family members who have deceived and forsaken them? And will Aaron be able to convince Linda that she is worthy of his love?

A lackluster read

Sometimes an author focuses on quantity (output of books) over quality (writing an inspiring novel). This book seems to fall into the former category. The writing is amateurish, the storyline too simple, and the dialogue lacks substance. It reminded me of the old readers "See Jane run. See Spot run. Jane followed Spot." Sorry to be so critical, but it takes time, effort, and creative energy to write a good book. Cranking them out at such a fast-pace produces...well, this.

Like others have said...

Once they stop having the same conversation over, and over, and over again (basically the first 8 chapters) and the story starts moving it's a sweet story.

At times it felt like the author had a minimum number of words she had to reach, and would just keep repeating the same thing over and over again to make that minimum.
