Like I have said, this book has been on my shelf for a good 2 years actually. This was a different type of Amish novel. It starts out with Sally Bingham answering an email from a Amish girl, Lizzie, about wanting a dog. Instead this request is about to open a can of worms of many unanswered questions in Sally’s life.
Sally has lived in Connecticut all her life with her sickly father, Honest Ed and his car lot. Her mother left her and her father when she was an infant and never returned.Has no relatives or relations. Now, as a newly engaged woman, she has a lot of under answered questions and is doubting her relationship is true. She and her Donald had a fight and he had yet to apologize. However, as she gets in her Mustang and heads to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, life is going to get very interesting.
From the moment she arrives, her situation becomes topsy turvy. Sally doesn’t expect to find anyone and believes it’s probably a farce. However, she accidentally runs into Lizzie for real and ends up heading to stay at her family’s house because the inn she was booked in had a leaky roof. Sally almost runs over the community Bishop on her way to Lizzie’s family’s house.
Once at the house she meets Lizzie’s mother Rhoda and her father Reuben and a handsome man, Armin, who lives in the guest house. Reuben appears to be a disgruntled person, but Rhoda is a motherly person. And Armin, he’s an awful nice guy and keeps watch over Sally.
After being there a bit Sally’s father calls her cell phone. He asks where she is and he tells her to leave and come home and abruptly hangs up. Sally soon learns the reason for the hang up and her father shows up at the family’s residence. Shortly, Sally also receives a call from Donald who is apparently with another woman. Will Sally be able to handle the secrets that are about to end fold? Will Sally have courage to handle the situation with Donald? Is there something between Sally and Armin or is it nothing? And why does Lizzie act so fidgety?
I’m going to stop here because there is a lot more to learn about Sally and the people she just met, but I’m going to let you go find the book for yourself and enjoy the interesting situation. If you wanna check out the author and learn more about her books, here’s her site. 🙂
