About the Book:
Independent-minded Leah Gingerich has always been outspoken. And even though she is now a progressive Mennonite, she’s rediscovering the joys of family traditions back in her Amish hometown. Yet she can’t help but clash with her handsome new Amish neighbor, Jamie Stoltzfus. He’s too hard-headed and old-line to see that his traumatized young nephew, Peter, needs faith and help—or that a woman who stands up to him may be what he needs to heal . . .
After a devastating tragedy, Jamie moved to Pontotoc with his nephew for a fresh start. Holding fast to his beliefs is the only way he feels he can aid Peter—and himself. But somehow, Leah’s freethinking ways and feisty challenges are sparking a happiness he’s never felt before. Soon, Jamie can’t imagine his life without her. But are their differences ultimately too great to overcome—or can love bridge their way to a future together?

This is not a mystery book but to me it was a mystery if Leah was going to change back to Amish or if Jamie was going to change to Mennonite or if they would not get together at all. Of course you will have to read the book to find out. This is part of a series where the first book was about Hannah who is Leah twin sister. They are completely different stories but it is best to read both. I always love books with children in it, besides Brandon who is living with Leah who is Hannah teenage son there is Peter who is very young and been through a lot with losing his family. Peter does not want to talk. Jamie is his uncle and is caring for Peter. I loved the dog story part in the book. Also loved how the cousins got together, reminded me of when I was growing up and we got together with our cousins. I received an advanced copy of the book from NetGalley through the publisher. I was not required to write an positive review.
